Group Working to Spread the Truth About the Constitutionality of Christmas

Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ but it’s also a federal holiday. Signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant in 1870, the law acknowledges the United States’ Judeo-Christian tradition.

Bill O’Reilly commented in his Talking Points Memo, “Everything was swell up until about 10 years ago when creeping secularism and pressure from groups like the ACLU began attacking the Christmas holiday. They demanded the word Christmas be removed from advertising and public displays.”

Many people caved in to their demands, creating what O’Reilly has dubbed as the “Happy Holidays” syndrome.

With Hanukkah ending this Thursday, there are no more holidays between then and Christmas.

O’Reilly criticized a Macy’s advertisement with a Santa Clause who can help shoppers with their “holiday wish list.”

“What holiday is Santa celebrating? Winter Solstice? The birthday of a reindeer?” O’Reilly asked.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation routinely threatens to sue small towns and school districts across America over situations that evoke Christmas.

The Alliance Defending Freedom organization has successfully worked to defend traditional rights. Doug Napier, the senior vice president of the group, joined The O’Reilly Factor tonight.  

Napier said the ACLU and FFRF are spreading misinformation, such as Christmas carols not being allowed in schools. Usually the schools cave to the threatening letters because they can't afford a lawsuit. That's where the ADF steps in, sending schools the correct information and representing them pro bono when they are sued.
