House R’s defend Christmas

A group of House Republicans has signed onto legislation declaring support for Christmas. Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) has introduced a resolution expressing the sense of the House that “the symbols and traditions of Christmas should be protected for use by those who celebrate Christmas” amid warnings from the right that religion is being pushed out of the holiday. The resolution states that the House “strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas” and “expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions by those who celebrate Christmas.” Thirty-five fellow Republicans have signed onto the resolution as co-sponsors/The Hill.

DFO: For some reason, this reminds me of the successful fight by Hayden attorney Jeremy Morris to erect a ha-huge, outdoor Christmas display, to the chagrin of his homeowners Association. Isn't Morris' outdoor display suppose to begin its run soon?
