Bill Donohue released the following comments today:
Yesterday, we listed the e-mail address of the Human Resources department of JB Partners, the company responsible for telling senior citizens at The Willows in Newhall, California that they must remove the Christmas tree; the residents were informed that the tree was religious.
After our news release was issued, the company was bombarded with thousands of e-mails. The good news is that late yesterday afternoon, the senior citizens were told they could get their Christmas tree back.
Many thanks to all those who protested. It goes to show that while cable TV commentators may opine on the War on Christmas, it takes an organized effort by a national civil rights organization to bring about real change.
