At least one Texas lawmaker is taking the War on Christmas very seriously, and he intends to file legislation to put a stop to it!
A Texas state representative pre-filed legislation that would allow public school officials to use “traditional winter greetings” such as “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukkah” on school grounds.
The “Merry Christmas Bill” would grant “the right to celebrate on school property with displays associated with those holidays, including Menorahs, Christmas trees and Nativity scenes.”
The “Merry Christmas Bill.”
From the local media
“This bill originated when I picked up my first-grade son from school last year and asked him how his day went. He told me that his class had decorated their holiday tree with holiday ornaments. When I asked what a holiday tree was, he told me it was the same as a Christmas tree,” Bohac said. “After inquiring with school officials as to why the term “Holiday Tree” was being used, it became apparent that the school was fearful of litigation. It was that moment that inspired me to file legislation that would provide students, parents, teachers and administrators a safe harbor for openly celebrating a Federal holiday.”
I simply can’t read that you’re trying to provide “safe harbor” for people to celebrate Christmas without bursting into fits of uncontrollable laughter.
Look, if this is that big of a deal to you, your priorities are irrevocably out of order. You probably have no business holding public office, either.
Don’t mess with Texas.
