To The Telegram,
Our nation was founded on Christian principles. Christianity is woven deep within our nation's history and rule of law. It is nothing to be ashamed of. It should be celebrated as it was for hundreds of years.
Our constitution assures the free expression of religion in our society and does not say, anywhere in the Constitution, that there should be a separation of Church and State! I am tired of the anti-Christmas sentiment being pushed by the ACLU and other extreme liberal organizations trying to remove religion from our life.
The latest outrage that has happened in the last few years has been perpetuated by our very own School Board and Superior High School! The Superior High School Christmas dance thrived for many years in Superior. It was always a great time filled with lights and music celebrating the Christmas season. Does anyone care that the dance is now in mid-January and is now called the winter formal? This is another example of the breakdown of morals and values in our society. If you continue to take religion out of our lives, our society will lose what it needs to remain strong. The Christmas dance needs to return to what and where it was.
I am so pleased to hear cashiers at Wal-Mart say Merry Christmas this year as I enter or leave the store. I am more likely to shop there again next year as a result. I cringe when people or businesses say Season's Greetings or Happy Holidays! Say "Merry Christmas" to people and be proud of our religious heritage! We can't be afraid of people who are anti-Christian! Bring back the Christmas dance and Merry Christmas to all!
