Yes friends, the federal grinch is hard at work trying to steal Christmas this year. This year, Christians need to fight back to keep Christ in Christmas. If we surrender now, Christmas will be forever secularized and America will lose that special favor that the Lord reserves for the greatest nation on the face of the earth. In today’s dangerous world, to spit in the face of our Heavenly Father would be suicidal.
B4B friend Don Wildmon sent me an email about one of the opening salvos in the ongoing War on Christmas, and it isn’t pretty.
The Plant City Living Center has told Mrs. Arnold, an 85-year-old grandmother in Florida, that federal law prohibits her from displaying any religious words or items associated with Christmas in the common area of her apartment building.
According to the Center, The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a directive banning “any religious symbols or religious words associated with Christmas.” Under the guidelines issued by HUD, the elderly grandmother cannot place a small Christmas tree outside her door (because that area is a “commons area”) if it contains any religious symbols or religious words, even an angel!
And it’s worse than even that, assuming it was possible, which it is.
If the residents want to have a Christmas party in their Community room, they cannot call it a Christmas party. The Center says HUD directs residents not to use the word “Christmas” but to use the word “Holiday.”
And keep those nasty Sunday School kids away. They might remind people of Jesus. The horror!
A Sunday School class from a church near Mrs. Arnold’s apartment comes every year to host a Hanging of the Greens and Christmas Party for all the residents. She said the highlight of their Christmas Party comes at the very end of The Hanging of the Greens when someone places the angel on top of their Christmas tree. Their tradition is now banned by the federal government.
Angels are banned, “Christmas” is banned, Sunday School kids are banned. But if you want to hang a secular Clinton ornament on your tree or even the visage of Satan, no problem! The War on Christmas starts earlier every year. I think it’s time the fight was joined (on the opposing side of course). Perhaps some civil disobedience is in order. Hang an angel on a public tree this year, say “Merry CHRISTmas!” to everyone you see.
And think of poor 85-year old Mrs. Arnold and pray for her. First they came for the grannies….
