Stop The ACLU
Early Warning
Every year we have come to expect the ACLU to wage war on Christmas. Just recently, the ADF won a victory for a school threatened by the ACLU over a nativity scene. The ACLU have created an environment that has spread like a virus across the nation. The far left have taken the politically correct ball and ran with it. They have redefined in their own minds, and in the minds of many Americans that "all inclusive" means "excluding" Christianity.

The environment the ACLU have created through threatening tactics across the years have made many schools proactive. In order to avoid lawsuits, some schools straight out banned the C word. This year, however, legal groups are being preemptive. The Alliance Defense Fund has even devoted a website, and offered free legal advice to any who feel they are being censored this year.

A backlash is happening this year as the American people are making their voices known. Wal-Mart felt the backlash, and backed off the politically correct exclusion of the word Christmas after being threatened with a boycott. Boston set off a furor this week when it officially renamed a giant tree erected in a city park a "holiday tree" instead of a "Christmas tree."

The Capitol officially returned to calling it a Christmas tree instead of a holiday tree. Lowes also dumped the "holiday" reference after public outcry.

One Michigan family was told they could not display a nativity scene on their own lawn. After being threatened with fines if they did not remove it, they contacted the Thomas More Law Center, and were victorious in standing up for their rights.

Bill O'Reilly is leading the charge on his show, featuring the secularization of Christmas. John Gibson, also of FOX news has even written a book about it.

They are not alone, bloggers are reacting too. California Conservative has teamed up with us, and created a petition to support Christmas. Stop The ACLU is providing Christmas decorations for your blog. Kevin McCullough is asking his readers to send the ACLU Christmas cards.

Now, I feel I have to add something to this. I'm not a fan of the term "Happy Holidays" on it's own myself, but while reading this post I've actually come to a realization. While I like that people are standing up to the likes of the ACLU and demanding that Christmas be brought back, it seems some are doing it at the expense of another holiday. Christmas isn't the only celebration this month. We also have Hanukkah. I don't count Kwanza as a real holiday. Unlike the ACLU though, I don't think stores are using "Happy Holidays" because they hate Christmas and want to see it done away with. They use it because they have more than just Christmas shoppers. I wouldn't support a boycott of stores that use it. That being said, when we get into idiotic crap like "holiday tree" that's where I get upset. It's a Christmas tree. Always has been, always will be. Calling it a "holiday tree" is pushing the line between PC and sheer stupidity.
