Texas ends “The War on Christmas”

Christmas

Glenn Beck.com

Texas has embraced a new law with bipartisan support affirming the First Amendment right for teachers, students, and parents to “acknowledge Christmas on school grounds without fear of censorship, persecution, or litigation”. It’s pretty amazing that legislation like this has to be passed in America, but at least Texas holds on to just a little bit of sanity.

“This is all coming because students in Texas have been banned from passing out candy cane pins with a Christmas message. Students are not allowed to use the word ‘Merry Christmas’ in letters to our troops, renaming the Christmas tree to holiday tree and the Christmas party and Christmas concerts to winter or December concerts, hostility and overreaction to the presence of Santa Claus in school,” Glenn explained.

So what does the new law say? MerryChristmasTexas.com explains in their FAQ:

Can my school acknowledge Christmas? Yes. HB 308 guarantees the freedom of acknowledging Christmas for teachers and students in our public schools without fear of censorship, persecution or litigation.

Can teachers and students face punishment for talking about Christmas? No. HB 308 respects the first amendment rights of students and staff and tells school districts that they don’t have to be “speech police” for Christmas expressions. Teachers and students in Texas no longer need fear political correctness run amok, that have led to Christmas Trees being replaced with “Holiday Trees” and simple greetings such as “Merry Christmas” landing a student or teacher in hot water.

Does this new law force school districts to teach about Christmas and other holidays? No, HB 308 states that a school district “may educate” students about the history and cultural impact of Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holidays.

Does this new law force school districts, staff or students to endorse a particular religion? No. HB 308 specifically states that displays “may not include a message that encourages adherence to a particular religious belief.”

“I love this.  Thank you, Texas.  Thank you for stopping the insanity,” Glenn said.

Texas Gov. Perry signs ‘Merry Christmas’ bill into law

Christmas

Published June 14, 2013

Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas –  Surrounded by sleigh bell-ringing Santa Claus impersonators, Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday signed a law protecting Christmas and other holiday celebrations in Texas public schools from legal challenges – but also stressed that freedom of religion is not the same thing as freedom from religion.

It was a serious tone for an otherwise fun bill-signing and should bolster the governor’s Christian conservative credentials before he travels to Washington for the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference with the likes of tea party darlings and U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, Kentucky’s Rand Paul and fellow Texan Ted Cruz.

Dubbed the “Merry Christmas” bill, the bipartisan measure sailed through the state House and Senate to reach Perry’s desk.

It removes legal risks of saying “Merry Christmas” in schools while also protecting traditional holiday symbols, such as a menorah or nativity scene, so long as more than one religion and a secular symbol are also reflected.

“I realize it’s only June. But it’s a good June and the holidays are coming early this year,” Perry said. ” It’s a shame that a bill like this one I’m signing today is even required, but I’m glad that we’re standing up for religious freedom in this state. Religious freedom does not mean freedom from religion.”

During the last Sunday of the legislative session on May 26, Rep. Donna Howard, an Austin Democrat, gave the Texas House’s daily prayer.

“We are fortunate to live in a country where we have the freedom to exercise the religion of our choosing while also being free from having any religion imposed upon us,” said Howard, herself a Unitarian Universalist.

Her words prompted some conservative lawmakers to hold their own, separate prayer session moments later.

From the mouth’s of babes ! We learn much.

Christmas, Enjoy

THE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT

My husband and I had been happily
married (most of the time)
for five years
but hadn’t been blessed with a baby.

I decided to do some serious
praying and promised God
that if he would give us a child,
I would be a perfect mother,
love it with all my heart
and raise it with His word
as my guide.

God answered my prayers
and blessed us with a son.

The next year God blessed us
with another son.

The following year,
He blessed us with
yet another son.

The year after that we
were blessed with a daughter.

My husband thought we’d
been blessed right into poverty.
We now had four children,
and the oldest was only
four years old.

I learned never to ask God
for anything unless I meant it
As a minister once told me,
“If you pray for rain,
make sure you carry an umbrella.”

I began reading a few verses
of the Bible to the children each day as they lay in their cribs..

I was off to a good start.
God had entrusted me
with four children and
I didn’t want to disappoint Him.

I tried to be patient the day
the children smashed
two dozen eggs on
the kitchen floor searching
for baby chicks.

I tried to be understanding…

when they started a hotel for
homeless frogs in the spare bedroom, although it took me nearly two hours
to catch all twenty-three frogs.

When my daughter poured
ketchup all over herself and
rolled up in a blanket to see
how it felt to be a hot dog,
I tried to see the humor
rather than the mess..

In spite of changing over
twenty-five thousand diapers,
never eating a hot meal
and never sleeping for more
than thirty minutes at a time,
I still thank God daily for my children.

While I couldn’t keep my promise
to be a perfect mother –
I didn’t even come close….
I did keep my promise
to raise them in the Word of God.

I knew I was missing the mark
just a little when I told
my daughter we were going
to church to worship God,
and she wanted to bring
a bar of soap along to
“wash up” Jesus, too.

Something was lost
in the translation when
I explained that
God gave us everlasting life,
and my son thought it was
generous of God to give
us his “last wife.”

My proudest moment came
during the children’s
Christmas pageant.

My daughter was playing Mary,
two of my sons were shepherds
and my youngest son was a wise man.
This was their moment to shine.

My five-year-old shepherd
had practiced his line,
“We found the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes.”

But he was nervous and said,
“The baby was wrapped
in wrinkled clothes.”

My four-year-old “Mary” said,
“That’s not ‘wrinkled clothes,’ silly.

That’s dirty, rotten clothes.”

A wrestling match broke out
between Mary and the shepherd
and was stopped by an angel,
who bent her halo and lost
her left wing.

I slouched a little lower
in my seat when Mary
dropped the doll representing
Baby Jesus, and it bounced
down the aisle crying,
“Mama-mama.” he

Mary grabbed the doll,
wrapped it back up
and held it tightly as
the wise men arrived.

My other son stepped forward
wearing a bathrobe
and a paper crown,
knelt at the manger
and announced,
“We are the three wise men,
and we are bringing gifts
of gold,
common sense
and fur.”

The congregation
dissolved into laughter,
and the pageant
got a standing ovation.

“I’ve never enjoyed a Christmas
program as much as this one,”
laughed the pastor,
wiping tears from his eyes

“For the rest of my life,
I’ll never hear the
Christmas story without
thinking of
gold,
common sense
and fur.”

“My children are my pride
and my joy and my greatest
blessing,” I said as I dug
through my purse for an aspirin.

Jesus had no servants,
yet they called Him Master.

Had no degree,
yet they called Him Teacher .

Had no medicines,
yet they called Him Healer.

Had no army,
yet kings feared Him.

He won no military battles,
yet He conquered the world.
He committed no crime,
yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb,
yet He lives today.

Feel honoured
to serve such a Leader
who loves us.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

‘Santa’ Saves Man from Burning Pickup — But That’s Not the Whole Story…

Christmas

From The Blaze.com

Incredible video caught one good Samaritan this past Tuesday pulling North Texas man out from his crashed pickup truck just before it was consumed by flames. After the rescue, the good Samaritan directed traffic around the accident until help came. What makes the rescue even more astounding is that the good Samaritan, Brad Luddeke, did it all this while wearing a Santa Claus costume on his way to deliver gifts to needy children. If that wasn’t incredible enough, WFAA reports on the heart warming coincidence, that some may call a sign of faith, behind the amazing video:
