Clippin' Those Wings

Clarence, the angel from "It's A Wonderful Life" would not be pleased.

According to the Liberty Counsel, a conservative group fervently scoping the country for signs of the Christmas Wars, a Florida retirement home has ordered its workers to clip the wings off an angel on top of its Christmas tree.

The tree itself was defined as a secular symbol, so it was allowed to stay: Same with various Santa Clauses, wreaths and Hanukkah menorahs.

The release didn't say whether the home was also banning "Touched by an Angel" reruns.
