Congressman-elect Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) claimed this week that "the celebration of Christmas has been under fire."
Loudermilk made his commnets to Family Research Council (FRC) official and star of "19 Kids and Counting" Josh Duggar on the FRC's radio show “Washington Watch,” noted RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
“It seems like it has gotten to the point where we even have to defend our rights that are given to us to celebrate the birth of Christ and even just the celebration of Christmas has been under fire by the far-left,” claimed Loudermilk.
“I sense that there is some momentum that we haven’t seen in many years in this nation that people are just kind of tired of political correctness, they’re tired of having their rights stepped upon and they’re ready for something different,” added Loudermilk.
According to The Huffington Post, Loudermilk was endorsed by Christian historian David Barton in 2013.
"There is no greater expert on the U.S. Constitution and the underpinnings of American government, than David Barton," claimed Loudermilk.
