Excerpt:Â It seems that the Christmas season brings out the hostility of atheists and secularists, the way a full moon attracts howling predators.Â I was stunned to discover that the results of a survey in my local newspaper showed that about two-thirds of people preferred a â€œMerry Christmasâ€ greeting to â€œHappy Holidays.â€ Â Some of thisÂ response probablyÂ comes fromÂ recent publicity garneredÂ by retailers who forbade their employees from saying â€œMerry Christmas,â€ out of fear of offending someone (have you ever wondered why retailers never fear offending the nationâ€™s majority who claim to be Christians?). Â On a local basis, some of the surprising solidarity is also due to a religious liberty issue that occurred in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The MayorÂ allowed the head of the city council to place, at his own expense,Â a nativity on the premises of City Hall. Other groups were invited to place there own symbols with it to maintain the â€œconstitutionalityâ€ of the display, but when a Wiccan wreath that appeared with the nativity was vandalized, it wasnâ€™t replaced. A Madison, Wisconsin based christian suppressionist organization,Â the Freedom From Religion Foundation, filed a lawsuit, even though the display was taken down the day after Christmas. The city has solicited the help of The Alliance Defense Fund for legal representation.
