Merry Christmas, It’s Okay to Say It

December 19, 2007

Here’s a powerful ally supporting Christmas:

The Alliance Defense Fund recently wrote a letter offering to defend pro bono Queen Creek, AZ officials from any potential lawsuits if they restore the name of the city’s Christmas Tree.  “It is time to stop the ridiculous assault on a holiday celebrated by 95 percent of Americans,” said ADF Senior Counsel Gary McCaleb.  Amen!

According to Fox News reporter Adam Housley,

Mayor Art Sanders says he can understand the upset and would like to see the word “Christmas” return to the celebration.  Sanders says no one would call a menorah a holiday candlestick and that he’s always wanted to call the tree a Christmas tree.  Town Manager John Kross says the decision to rename the tree came in 2000 to recognize the overall season, not just Christmas.

Take a moment to email your support for the city’s Christmas Tree to Queen Creek Mayor Art Sanders; and your disapproval of renaming it a “Holiday Tree” to Town Manager John Kross.
