Earlier this month, President Donald J. Trump issued a proclamation recognizing that today is Bill of Rights Day. It was an easy proclamation to overlook: The president hasn’t tweeted about it at all as of this writing.
It’s the first day of December, which normally means it would be time to gin things up on the “War on Christmas,” but, to be perfectly honest, I’m having some trouble mustering much enthusiasm this year.
I’m not the only one. The Religious Right seems to be losing interest as well.
I’m not sure if you’ve heard the news, but President Donald Trump has declared that the ‘War on Christmas’ is over – and his side won.
I attended my first Values Voter Summit this weekend, the annual event hosted by the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., that aims to “mobilize citizens to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life and limited government.”
The hot, humid days of late July are apparently not too early to spout bogus “War on Christmas” rhetoric. And President Donald J. Trump settled on an unusual venue to kick things off: a Boy Scout Jamboree.
A Jewish family in Pennsylvania became the focus of unwelcome attention after a Christmas play was canceled at their child’s school – and some people falsely blamed them.
The parents in September sought and were given permission for their fifth-grader to be excused from participating in a production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” which Centerville Elementary School in Lancaster County had produced for at least two decades, according to the news websites Philly.com and LancasterOnline.com.
We recently recapped how the “War on Christmas” is non-existent and is a ridiculous excuse for some Religious Right activists to throw a pity fest for themselves and pretend they’re oppressed while politicizing inclusive holiday greetings, decorations and religious symbols.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – or not. The holiday season means something or nothing to many people. For the Religious Right, ‘tis the season for resurrecting the bogus “War on Christmas.”
Why did Donald Trump, a real estate mogul and reality TV star with no political experience, decide to run for president?
We have no shortage of theories. Some say Trump wanted free publicity to boost his sagging personal brand. Others assert it was all a stunt to launch a new cable TV channel. Still others insist Trump jumped in to shake things up and have a little fun, never expecting to actually win the Republican nomination.
Now Trump’s son Eric has put forth a new theory: His father was upset because the White House Christmas tree was renamed a “holiday tree.”
Baxter County, Ark., officials must pay more than $52,000 in legal fees to attorneys who challenged its refusal to allow a local humanist group to erect a holiday display.
U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks ruled that attorneys affiliated with the American Humanist Association (AHA) are entitled to the fees, reported the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
