Public schools and Christmas

This is repeat from a post October 9, but it is relevant as ever. Recently, I’ve been thinking that if Christians, as the religious majority in America, do not stand up for free religious speech, who will stand up for the free religious speech of religious minorities? Something to think about. 

Please read this interesting and highly important 2006 letter from Jay Alan Sekulow, Esq., Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, regarding public schools and the celebration of holidays. Based on established court cases, Mr. Sekulow offers opinions to questions such as:

  • May public school choirs sing Christmas carols? YES
  • May public schools teach about the biblical origins of Christmas? YES
  • May public schools display religious Christmas symbols? YES
  • May public schools continue to refer to a “Christmas” break? YES

Good stuff!
