The Christmas censors wasted no time this year trying to censor Christmas. The Chesterfield County Schools in Virginia yielded to a few students who objected to
Christmas songs that mentioned Jesus; all such songs were banned. If they had it their way, Christmas would be banned, not simply lyrics that mention Jesus.
In 2017, there was a nativity scene at the Ravenna Courthouse Lawn, but this year it has been banned. The mayor in this Ohio town said, “When people complained, I could not defend it. For me, if I cannot defend something when people complain, I should not be doing it.” Untrue. If people complained about his delinquent leadership, he would be unable to defend himself, yet he would not resign.
Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is one of the most strident anti-Christian groups in the nation. They are trying to get a cross and a star removed from a public park in the Pennsylvania borough of Honesdale. But they have been met with opposition from Christians and Jews alike.
FFRF also objected to a nativity scene on the property of Oscoda Township in Michigan. Christians took the matter into their own hands and arranged to have the crèche erected on private property across the street from the township hall.
The Catholic League will erect its life-size nativity scene in Central Park on December 12. Check it out if you get to New York—it’s right in front of the Plaza Hotel.
