Here are some highlights from the article:

From Lakeland, Florida:

BARTOW -- Knowing the Polk County Commission has refused to sanction Nativity scenes on government property, a group of Baptist grandparents took Christmas into their own hands Wednesday.

Under the cover of night, they erected a manger scene on the lawn of the Neil Combee County Administration Building. And now the question is whether commissioners will evict Baby Jesus before his birthday.

Wednesday's covert mission accomplished what other church groups have failed to do in recent months: move Mary, Joseph and child onto a grassy plot near the center of the county's court, government and sheriff offices.

How they did it, though, sounds like something from the playbook of a teenage boy who decides to take Dad's new car to the beach and beg forgiveness later.

"We didn't ask them," said Barbara Pittman, director of the Adult Two Sunday School Department of First Baptist Church of Bartow.

"We would have done it in the middle of the day, but we did it after our prayer meeting," Pittman said. "We didn't do it to hide from anybody.
