Removing Christmas from the curriculum

According to the Associated Press, "A proposal for new social studies curriculum in Texas public schools removes a mention of Christmas in a sixth-grade lesson, replacing it with a Hindu religious festival..."

Many Christians are "turn-the-other-cheek" kind of people who are much more interested in the the Gospel of Jesus Christ than they are in social controversies and politics. This is commendable and as it should be.

Unfortunately, if these Christians don't wake up, the America their children and grand children will inherit will look far more like the former Soviet Union than the America we grew up in (Obama, Pelosi and Reid are certainly pushing us in that directly).

The politically correct and bigoted attempts to remove all vestiges of Christianity from education and the public square are always promoted by Democrats and so-called "progressives" (if there is an exception, I've never heard of it).

And yet so many Christians keep voting for them in large part because many Christians misguidedly think Democrats are the ones who help people.

Hamas helps people too. If you lived in Gaza would you vote for Hamas?
