I apologize for the short notice but this was brought to my attention a few minutes ago. If you live near Oskaloosa and are available please try to attend this meeting. One secular individual will be there but she could use as much support as we can give her.
Oskaloosa City Council Special Meeting
Wednesday, December 12, 2012
City Council Chambers
City Hall, 220 South Market
Oskaloosa, Iowa 52577
The meeting is to discuss the creation of a policy regarding displays, including religious displays, in the city square (city park / government property). This is a big deal because several people from the community are planning on attending and arguing that a nativity should be placed in the square with the exclusion of other faiths (including mine which is pagan), agnostics and atheists.
Also, a City Council man is sympathetic to those community members. Listen to that Council man's voice mail to me here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnig3Xt1BUo
