Just as they did when the non-existent threat of Sharia Law emerged, legislators in Oklahoma are considering a pair of bills to combat the non-existent threat of the liberal War on Christmas.
Two bills, HB2316 and HB 2317, “permit school districts to display on school property scenes or symbols associated with traditional winter celebrations,” which the co-sponsors of the bill define to mean Christmas and Hanukkah. The language also states that any religious scene must also depict at least one other religious or secular icon.
War on Christmas Doomsday Preppers and the bill’s chief sponsors are apparently afraid that someone may file a lawsuit against public schools for use of the phrase “Merry Christmas,” saying that the bills will allow schools to “celebrate winter traditions without fear of lawsuit, retribution or reprisal.”
As Adam Peck writing for ThinkProgress explains, the inclusion of “at least one other religious or secular icon” is an attempt to avoid being ruled unconstitutional just as the state’s ban on Sharia Law was ruled unconstitutional.
The Founders must have been in on the liberal War on Christmas.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to be a good liberal and go burn a Christmas tree and tell a kid that Santa isn’t real.
