Texas Passes New Law to Protect The Phrase ‘Merry Christmas’ [POLL]
Don't know if you heard about this or not! The state of Texas just passed a new law that protects schools from being sued for using the phrase "Merry Christmas" or hanging Christmas decorations. Are you kidding me? Yesterday (6/17) Governor Rick Perry signed a law that protects schools for using the phrase "Merry Christmas". Under the bill, schools CAN use the phrase, put up decorations, sing Christmas carols, pass out candy canes and other Christmas related activities. However, they have to give some representations to other religions as well.
With Christmas about six months away Texas wanted to get a jump on this situation before it became a problem. Never in my lifetime did I think I would I ever see the day where you couldn't say Merry Christmas to someone and offend them. Unreal!
I'm glad that Texas is doing the right thing it's just a shame though that they had to create a bill to put into law.
By the way, I'm going to go ahead and say it - "Merry Christmas."
