Florida’s Capitol to host a nativity scene

by John Kennedy | November 26th, 2013

A Christian organization said Tuesday it plans to display a nativity scene at the Florida Capitol this holiday season, a new feature to go with the usual Christmas tree and menorah that stand near the entrance to the Governor’s Office.

The eye-catching display risks catching some heat from advocates for stricter boundaries between church and state. But Pam Olsen, president of the Florida Prayer Network, said, “It’s long overdue.”

“I don’t want to offend anyone,” said Olsen, of Tallahassee. “But the nativity scene shows what we are celebrating this season.”

Olsen assisted an Illinois-based organization, American Nativity Scene, committed to bringing such displays to all 50 states, prepare an application submitted to the Florida Department of Management Services.

The nativity scene, which depicts the birth of Christ, is to be unveiled Tuesday in the Capitol’s first-floor rotunda, just off the main entrance. It is expected to remain up through Dec. 27.
