The title isn’t a reference to the Derby or the Preakness or the Belmont Stakes.Â It’s a reference to the annual Festival of Nativity Naysayers, aka the Feast of Christmas Humbuggers, aka the Holiday When Liberals Dump on Christians.
We’veÂ barely reached the pagan festival of Halloween but, never known as people who missed a chance to bash Christian beliefs, the Left is already up in arms over a 63-year Christmas tradition in Warren, Michigan.Â
They’re trying to ban the return of a creche scene to a public site where it has stood every year since 1945.
Perhaps emboldened by President Obama’s outrageous declaration that America is not a Christian nation and well aware it could never accomplish its goals by public referendum, the atheistic Freedom From Religion Foundation has filed suit in federal court to banish the creche.
The foundation’s basis?Â Why, the non-existent constitutional clause mandating a strict separation of church and state, of course.
John Satawa’s dad built and installed the creche just after World War II and it has become a cherished symbol of the season for Warrenites ever since but last year the lackeys onÂ the local road commission ruled it was illegal.
PC caught up with Warren after 63 years of free expression.Â Suddenly, too, the creche became “a traffic hazard,” according toÂ the Freedom of Religion Foundation: http://bit.ly/47y4wI
As background, that 31 year old foundation is also on record as protesting any form of public prayer.Â It considers Frederick Douglas and Margaret Sanger among its heroes:Â http://bit.ly/Ju7um.
We can only hope the good citizens of Warren, MI rise up with or without torches and pitchforks and storm city hall as if it were the Bastille to demand a return to Christmas tradition and an end to insanity.
And, since they, and America’s retailers started it, MERRY CHRISTMAS!Â
