Wants township to clarify rules for public land use

To the editor:

The Derry Township Board of Supervisors on Oct. 21 approved an application from Shining Light Through the Darkness to use Kish Park for its Christmas decorative event from Dec. 7 to Jan. 8.

However, mythical and/or religious figures adorn the selected pavilion both inside and outside. This then is a religious display on public land. Since a government cannot advance or inhibit religion, is the Board’s acceptance considered an endorsement of the event?

I think the Board should make clear its rules for the use of its land for public use.
