Why the Continued War on Christmas? (Townhall.com) December 7, 2009

It’s beginning to look a lot like … wait, don’t say it. If you say it in the wrong   place—like a school or courthouse—and you really mean it, you may become a casualty of the war on Christmas.

In recent years, everything from nativity scenes to, yes, candy canes have been banned somewhere in an effort to avoid any reference to Christmas or Christ. 

All this is one more battle in the larger war which seeks to remove any reference to God or any symbol of religion from the public square.    

The so-called “wall of separation” between church and state is not in the Constitution, and the Founders would be shocked to see how the First Amendment is being used in many places to attack what they saw as an essential source of virtue for a free republic.  

If I may say it:  Merry Christmas to all.
