Allegheny County officials have decided not to set up a Nativity scene surrounded by reindeer and Santa Claus, even though the U.S. Supreme Court says a secular display is permissible. The Supreme Court ruled in July that the county's traditional Nativity scene crossed the constitutional boundary between church and state. But the court upheld the city of Pittsburgh's right to display a Jewish menorah, which stood alongside a Christmas tree in the City-County Building.

Despite increasing complaints, Mennonite owners of the three Good's Stores in central Pennsylvania refuse to stock one popular item: the American flag. Many in Amish, Brethren and Mennonite "peace churches" feel flag displays violate their belief that Jesus requires pacifism and might foster idolatry. The Sept. 11 attacks have created enormous demand for American flags nationwide, and Good's owners have received many written and verbal complaints from shoppers who want to buy one.

The Supreme Court, in a setback for advocates of school vouchers, turned down the legal claim Tuesday that a state must include religious schools if it subsidizes students attending private schools. The justices let stand an unusual Maine law that pays for students in small towns without high schools to go to public or private schools at state expense. The law excludes parochial schools from the tuition-subsidy program.
