Merry Christmas: Don’t Be Afraid to Say it!
*Student banned from bringing candy cane to school “Winter Party”, because of religious references.
*Students banned from writing “Merry Christmas” on cards they sent to U.S. Military troops in Iraq.
*School policy only allowed white plates and napkins, no red and green colors allowed for “Winter Party”
*”Christmas” holiday reference removed from social studies curriculum, while other religious holidays like Ramadan, were left in.
Just a few recent examples of the assault on Christmas here in Texas. Thankfully, we helped pass a state law in 2007 to protect religious free speech in public schools and to stop this type of religious bigotry and intolerance, otherwise this list could be endless.
