Here’s a news story that should interest some of our proud Southern boys. The
The Cookville Times reports that Hedy Weinburg, ACLU executive director in Tennessee is sending threatening letters to Tennessee public school superintendents warning them not to have any “Christmas” parties as this promotes one religion over others. The ACLU has taken a leading role in the “war against Christmas” – while the Mainstream Media (MSM) insists there is no “war against Christmas”. Here’s the Chatanooga Times story:
School superintendents across the state were reminded by the ACLU this week that holiday celebrations focusing primarily on one religious holiday amount to an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) letter, addressed to 137 public shool leaders across the state, stated that it was responding to a number of complaints from families about school party activites this Christmas season.
Hedy Weinburg, ACLU executive director in Tennessee, cited several U.S. Supreme Court decisions about the matter.
But several area citizens, like Jim Brown, think that such admonitions are misguided and potentially dangerous. Brown commented on the news, saying “We are a Christian nation. Let’s act like it.” and said that he hopes that the teachers and administration will celebrate the Christmas season.
Said one area teacher (name withheld), “I respect people of different faiths, but that doesn’t mean that I’m going to eliminate my own from my work and and my classroom. I can enjoy Christmas as Christmas without worrying that I’m going to offend someone. My money still says that I trust in God. Are they going to stop me from using that, too?”
The letter was sent from the ACLU to the top administrators across the state. What those administrators do with the information is yet to be seen.
