City Orders Acknowledgement of Pro-Life Donor Removed from Public Nativity Display

From the category of "What the...?" we have the following:

Campaign Life Catholic (CLC), a branch of the pro-life organization, Campaign Life Coalition, has come under media fire in the last day following a controversy related to a donation they made this year to help another organization purchase figurines for a public nativity scene.

CLC Catholic had donated $5000 for figurines for a nativity scene erected by the Catholic lay movement, Gethsemane Ministries, in front of Toronto's Old City Hall courthouse. Affixed to the display was an 8 ½ X 11 in. laminated paper sign noting that the display had been erected by Gethsemane Ministries. The Catholic Organization's logo was the dominant item on the notice. The bottom three lines, in small plain text, stated, "Statues donated by Campaign Life Coalition Catholic in honour of the efforts of Pro-Life hero Fr. Ted Colleton."

However, the issue exploded onto the national stage after a prominent Toronto blog reported on the sign in a story headlined: "Away in a Manger No Place for a Pro-Life Message."
