So all the rhetoric about getting the government out of our lives, freedom and liberty, was nonsense right?
Merry Hyatt has found allies in her quest to put an initiative on the ballot next year requiring public schools to play Christmas carols.
The initiative would require schools to provide children the opportunity to listen to or perform Christmas carols, and would subject the schools to litigation if the rule isn’t followed.
Here we go again with the whole Non-Existent War on Christmas. And what do the good folks from the Redding, CA Tea Party Patriots have to say about this Un-Constitional, and blatant use of Government initiative?
“Bottom line is Christmas is about Christmas,” said Erin Ryan, president of the Redding Tea Party Patriots. “That’s why we have it. It’s not about winter solstice or Kwanzaa. It’s like, ‘wow you guys, it’s called Christmas for a reason.’ ” Ryan said Hyatt’s initiative falls under the umbrella of causes the group supports, which concern limited government, following the constitution and fiscal responsibility.
Wow. I’m speechless to be honest. I don’t even know where to start on that. Theres the whole thing about forcing “non-Christian” children singing songs about a Messiah they don’t believe in. (Liberty) And of course a school being subjected to Litigation if they fail to comply with the Law. (Limited Government) Then theres that whole “1st Amendment” thing stating something to the effect that the Government is prohibited in establishing a Religion. Just saying.
I also see this Ms. Ryan has no understanding how the celebration of Christmas came to be. Ma’am? It is in fact the “Winter Solstice”. And the reason why we celebrate the birth of the Christ during this time, was so that Holy Mother Church could convert the Pagans. So the Church took over their celebration and we made it our own. Most historians put the Christ’s birth in the spring.
Congratulations, you are now stupid in two subjects, The Constitution and Christianity.
Yeah, I think it’s time for you folks to turn in your “Conservative” cards.
