The traditional holiday season has, unfortunately, become a time of controversy over what can or cannot be done in terms of public celebration. In some places, nativity displays, Christmas carols, Christmas trees, wreaths, candy canes and even the colors red and green have been banned, as part of a politically-correct effort to avoid any reference to Christmas, Christ or God.
Some teachers have been told they could no longer even mention the word “Thanksgiving” because “the pilgrims offended the Indians” and “Thanksgiving was never intended to be thanks to God!” Some schools have changed their Christmas concerts to “winter holiday programs” or cancelled celebrations altogether, to avoid offending those who do not celebrate the various holidays.
Now, attorneys for the Rutherford Institute, in Charlottesville, VA* have compiled twelve, anti-Grinch guidelines for celebrating Christmas in public, at school or the workplace. These guidelines, are available at www.rutherford.org.
