New Law Protects the Right to Say “Merry Christmas”
Deep in the heart of Texas, public school teachers and administrators can now safely wish their students a “Merry Christmas” without fear of reprisal. The bi-partisan law, which was passed earlier this year, “removes any legal risks from exchanging holiday greetings in a classroom” and protects religious symbols as long as more than one religion is represented.
The author of the law says it was designed to keep “the censorship of Christmas out of public schools”. At least there’s one place in the country where it’s okay to wish someone a Merry Christmas in public schools without running the risk of losing your job. Amen to that. Here’s hoping that law will spread all over the country.
