Annual War on Christmas Already Begun

Catholic League president Bill Donohue notes
that
the 2009 war on Christmas has begun.

For almost three decades, there has been a
Christmas parade in Amelia, Ohio, a village outside Cincinnati.
But
this year there will be none. That’s because one person
complained,
village solicitor Laura Abrams. Her complaint: the word
“Christmas.”
In response, the village changed the name to the “Holiday
Parade,” though
it did not say what holiday was being celebrated. Understandably,
this dishonest scheme created a furor, the result being—just to
play
it safe—there will be no parade.

There will be no Christmas tree this year on
the
Capitol lawn in Frankfort, Kentucky. The word “Christmas” was
deemed
offensive. Instead, there will be a “Holiday Tree.” The official
line
is that the “Holiday Tree” is inclusive of Thanksgiving,
Christmas,
Hanukkah and New Year’s, though no one has ever heard of a
“Thanksgiving Tree,” “Hanukkah Tree” or “New Year’s Tree.”

When World War II ended, a local resident
from
Warren, Michigan decided to erect a nativity scene on a public
median; the same family has privately maintained this tradition
ever
since. But there won’t be one this year because a lawsuit argues
it
is discriminatory.

In Olympia, Washington, religious displays
have
been banned inside municipal buildings. But outside the
buildings, it
is okay. Well, not really—atheists are already protesting that
decision.

Arizona is supplying this year’s Christmas
Tree in
the nation’s Capitol. Attempts to bar students from making
religious
ornaments were defeated, but only because of a threatened
lawsuit.

Make no mistake about it: The declared enemy
of
these cultural fascists is religious speech, and they will stop
at
nothing to censor it. Stay tuned—we’re only in early
November.
