Atheist Attacks on Christmas

Mrs. Schlafly raises the issue of instances where, supposedly, public school children were forbidden to give out to their classmates Christmas cards with a religious message. If I were a school authority, I would not forbid this. However, it may be a trickier issue than she acknowledges. Suppose your child brought home a holiday card from a classmate carrying a specifically atheist, or Islamic, or otherwise non-Christian message? Would you acknowledge this as an exercise of the religious freedom shared equally by Christians and non-Christians? Or would you insist that in this "Christian nation," Christians have the right to proselytizre in school, but others do not?

WRH-If my kid came home from school with a card given to him by another kid I wouldn't sue the school. I might see it as a teachable moment and take the opportunity to have a discussion with my kid, but I would not be offended. Some people need to get a grip. However, I have friends from many different religions and we can all manage to deal with it. It just seems to be the atheists that want everything taken down. Where I live we have a Hannukah display and a manger scene in the public park. They seem to get along fine.

BTW-As long as the Islamic card doesn't say "convert or die, infadel", I'd be okay with it.
Bill O'Reilly asked this question on his Fox News program last week: "Why do I have to be the leader defending Christmas against its attackers?" O'Reilly was criticizing Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee's renaming his state's Christmas tree a "holiday tree."

Good question. It's time for Christians to realize that their religion is under attack, and they had better start fighting to win the war for religious liberty in public opinion, in the courts and in the schools.

The war against Christianity has been waged by the American Civil Liberties Union, the Freedom From Religion Foundation and similar groups....
