Capitol - Nativity scene

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A conservative group has set up a nativity
scene at the Wisconsin Capitol building in Madison, and an
atheists' group is seeking its own permit for an opposing display.
     A WISC-TV report says Wisconsin Family Action has been granted a
permit to display its scene until the end of the month. The six
statuettes that sit on a table depict the birth of Jesus Christ.
     Group spokeswoman Julaine Appling says the display is tasteful.
She says there's room for a number of different voices.
     But the Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation says a
nativity scene isn't appropriate for a state building. Annie Laurie
Gaylor says her group is seeking a permit for its own display, one
that's "slightly blasphemous" and an "irreverent tweak" on the
nativity scene.
