Just when you thought the anti-Christmas silliness couldn’t get any worse

This item comes by way of Newsday:

GRISWOLD, Conn. — The Christmas music begins emanating from a local church steeple about this time every year, ushering in the holiday season in this sleepy eastern Connecticut town.

In a tradition that began more than a decade ago, songs such as “America the Beautiful” and “Away in a Manger” are played every hour from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. The music, in the form of chiming bells, flows from a large speaker hidden at the top of Jewett City Baptist Church.

But the sounds of the season are under attack from the state chapter of American Atheists Inc., which wants town officials to stop or change the practice.
