Hats off to Oldham County officials for coming up with a novel response to the American Civil Liberties Union.
The ACLU has questioned the constitutionality of a Nativity scene on the courthouse lawn in La Grange and has asked Oldham county officials to clarify their policies on private use of the public square.
The ACLU told the officials that if the display was government-sponsored it would have to come down. If it's not, the ACLU said the county would have to let other groups also put on displays on the lawn.
County officials said that the Nativity scene wasn't government-sponsored and that over the years they have allowed various organizations to use the lawn.
