Jesus banned from Capitol Christmas tree!

Guess who's now banne from Capitol Christmas tree!:

“The U.S. Forest Service has banned the name of Jesus from decorations being assembled by children in Arizona for a blue spruce from the state that will become the Capitol Christmas Tree this year, and a legal firm is challenging the censorship.

‘Banning Christmas from the Capitol Christmas tree is just absurd. Christian students shouldn’t be discriminated against for expressing their religious beliefs,’ said Jonathan Scruggs, litigation staff counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund.

‘The First Amendment does not allow government officials to exclude schoolchildren’s ornaments for the capitol’s Christmas tree merely because they communicate a religious viewpoint,’ he said yesterday.

The organization has sent a letter to state and federal officials, including Arizona Gov. Janice Brewer, who are supervising the program, calling on them to stop enforcement of the prohibition.”

Stringing and Strowing says: Why do they allow Christmas as a holiday? It IS about the BIRTH OF OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST is it not? The “establishment” wants our “holiday” expenditures to stimulate the economy and their pocket books but they are not interested in Jesus Christ’ birth. Absurdity at its most egregious. Keep your money this year. Talk to your kiddies about the reason for the season. Celebrate the Savior’s birth not acquisition of “stuff.” Force these heathens to get to their REAL point…the elimination of our freedom to practise Christianity. Oh…and most important…make Jesus the FOCUS of your Christmas tree.
