SECULARISTS STILL TRYING TO BULLY CHRISTMAS FROM THE PUBLIC SQUARE

Excerpts from: http://blog.alliancedefendingfreedom.org/2013/12/18/secularists-still-trying-to-bully-christmas-from-the-public-square/

Any effort to bring out the real meaning of the season in the public square – and in particular, in our public schools – is being met with legal intimidation from those who most aggressively reject the Baby in the manger … and His message.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Freedom From Religion Foundation, for instance, both sent threatening letters to public school officials in Kalispell and Whitefish, Montana, to prevent choir members from the two cities’ local high schools from performing – voluntarily – in a community Christmas festival held at a church. To their great credit, officials in both cities elected to ignore the warning.

“Every federal court to examine the issue has determined that including Christmas carols in school choir performances fully complies with the First Amendment,” wrote Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys in a letter applauding the schools’ decision.
