Christmas: The war is on!

The war on Christmas has already begun under the absolutely false pretense of "separation of church and state." The idea that the Constitution prohibits government celebration of Christmas is nonsense! I will post again, what Michael Medved writes in his outstanding book, The 10 Big Lies about America,"
In fact, less than twenty-four hours after Congress approved the First Amendment, they clearly indicated the way they understood its language by passing the following resolution: "Resolved, that a joint committee of both Houses be directed to wait upon the President of the United States, to request that he would recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging, with grateful hearts, the many signal favors of Almights God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a Constitution for their safety and happiness." In the proclamation duly announcing the "day of public thanksgiving and prayer" that Congress had requested, President Washington declared November 26 "to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent Author of all good that was, that is, or that will be."

It never occurred to this First Congress that their call for public prayer would conflict with the amendment they had adopted a day earlier prohibiting "an establishment of religion" (83-84).
