Once again, the spirit of Christmas will be defiled by the godless in their war on Christmas, as they renew their annual assaults on the constitutional guarantees of free religious exercise and speech. They justify their despicable conduct upon a mythical separation of church and state, words not found in the Constitution. An establishment of religion is a church, just as an establishment of dining is a restaurant. The First Amendment does restrain Congress from granting legislative and executive powers to a particular church. The Civil Rights Act criminalizes discrimination based on race, religion or national origin. “Racist” is now frequently used in political character assassination, but anti-Christian bigotry is pervasively promoted throughout our educational system.
