Freedom of speech in Texas

June 18, 2013

article-perry-0614A tip of the hat to Governor Rick Perry for passing a law, last Thursday, that says it is OK for school students to say Merry Christmas. Personally I am tired of hearing about people suing school districts to remove any mention of Christmas. It is moronic to think that by simply saying Merry Christmas to each other it is promoting religion. Those against any comments about religion by students, teachers or in government facilities like schools, should read more than the first sentence of the first amendment to the constitution.

The first amendment reads,
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Saying Merry Christmas is not establishing a religion and more importantly it states that “no one can prohibit the free exercise thereof”. If that wasn’t enough we have the next few words supporting my thinking by saying that no law shall “abridging the freedom of speech”

In this world seemingly determined to obliterate Christianity
it is time we allowed God back into our lives.

    That is truly good news. What a concept, a politician with balls.
    Sometimes around Christmas, when someone wishes me that sappy “happy holidays” I’ll ask them “What holiday are you happy about?” I always get a funny look. LOL! Then I wish them “Merry Christmas”.
