A cadre of congressional Republicans have drafted quite controversial resolution concerning a certain holiday featuring a certain jolly old elf with a certain round belly…
Whereas Christmas is a national holiday celebrated on December 25; and
Whereas the Framers intended that the First Amendment of the Constitution, in prohibiting the establishment of religion, would not prohibit any mention of religion or reference to God in civic dialog: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives–
(1) recognizes the importance of the symbols and traditions of Christmas;
(2) strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas; and
(3) expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions by those who celebrate Christmas.
This resolution hasn't passed yet. Will it get bi-partisan support? Do the Democrats also like Christmas? Or do they hard-heartedly resent it for the joy it brings to children the world over? No one knows.
We'll keep you posted!
