"One of the sponsors of the creche was asked about his interest in viewing
it while it stood on Scarsdale's Boniface Circle during the christmas
season. To my surprise as the questioner, it turned out the he never bothered
to go look at the creche at all, let alone to admire or draw inspiration from
it. But on reflection, it should not have been so surprising. The creche was
not there for him to see or to appreciate for its intrinsic spiritual value
in his religious universe. it was there for others, who professed other
religions or none, so that the clout of his religious group should be made
manifest- above all to any in the sharply divided village who would have
preferred that it not be there."
[_Faith And Freedom, Religious Liberty In America_,
Marvin E. Frankel, retired Federal Judge, p. 61]
