ACLU hypocritical in prohibiting ‘Christmas’

When Americans in many parts of the world are kidnapped, persecuted and murdered just for being Christian, it is difficult to understand why a small group of detractors is creating an atmosphere of hate here at home. This small but vocal group is known as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). This union, which practices un-American and anti-Christian confrontation, should not be allowed to masquerade as the United States Supreme Court.

It is ironic that Christians are still regarded as the silent majority in spite of having 79.8 percent of Americans identifying themselves as Christian. However, they are not about to surrender their birthright to a small group of shysters.

It is hypocritical for the ACLU to want to prohibit the use of the name “Christmas” when public schools close for five days for the religious observances of Passover, Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Nevertheless, Christians will continue to uphold their beliefs.

The ACLU is out of step with the American people, and its attempt to defame an entire religion is reprehensible. And the majority of Americans are outraged.

Christmas is not just about making money. It is about singing old familiar carols, trimming the Christmas tree and exchanging presents with loved ones. And regardless of geographic location, it is the recognition of the greatest of holy days — the birth of Jesus Christ.
