House Republicans Declare War on the War on Christmas

House Republicans may take time out of their busy schedule to pass a symbolic measure that expresses support for Christmas and condemns attempts to ban "Christmas."

A group of 35 House Republicans have co-sponsored the resolution to declare war on the liberal War on Christmas.

Whereas Christmas is a national holiday celebrated on December 25; and

Whereas the Framers intended that the First Amendment of the Constitution, in prohibiting the establishment of religion, would not prohibit any mention of religion or reference to God in civic dialog: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) recognizes the importance of the symbols and traditions of Christmas;

(2) strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas; and

(3) expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions by those who celebrate Christmas.

Meanwhile, it appears Congress will pass another temporary, continuing resolution to fund the government beyond Wednesday of this week.

    Good to know everything important has been dealt with, so there’s time to faff about with meaningless, symbolic gestures toward a reliably Republican population.

    Here’s an idea, why not attach a rider to this piece of shit that states as follows:
    “The Representatives that came up with this idea must not enter government property in the District of Columbia without excessive body padding, a crash helmet, and adult supervision, lest they badly injure their delicate selves.”

    Seperation of church and state, Republican asswipes! Or are you so extremely bumhurt about seeing a Zombie Nativity that proposing this worthless bill of shit is more important than doing real work?

  • Republicans create phony “War on Christmas”.
