Rick Perry Signs ‘Merry Christmas Bill’ Into Law

Rick Perry SC Rick Perry signs ‘Merry Christmas bill’ into law

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is fighting on the front lines in the so-called “war on Christmas.”

On Thursday, Perry signed what has been dubbed the “Merry Christmas bill” into law. The measure allows schools to display religious symbols such as nativity scenes and Christmas trees so long as at least one other religious image or secular icon is also included.

In addition, the new law allows staff members and students at the state’s public schools to exchange traditional holiday greetings, such as “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah” and “happy holidays” without fear of reprisal.

“It’s a shame that a bill like this one I’m signing today is even required, but I’m proud that we’re standing up for religious freedom in this state,” Perry said at a “Religious freedom does not mean freedom from religion.”

    Thank you Gov. Rick Perry for standing up for religious freedom in this state, now if all the rest of these politicians would do the same, we would not have as much problems as we have now.

      Linda you know as well as I do that the commies in the ACLU willl be sueing to havethis bill thrown out.God I wish there was a way to round up these ACLU members and the Southern Poverty people and send them to Mexico with all the illegal aliens.

  2. PRAISE GOD for RICK PERRY’S COURAGE TO STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT and GOOD IN TEXAS.
    Tell every relative and out of state friend about it, and strongly suggest they contact/ request that their state leaders do the same thing!!

    God reads the minds and intentions of the heart, according to Holy Scripture, so draw nearer to Him and keep THANKING HIM in advance for having mercy on our nation, our
    Hypocrisy, human limitatiions, shortcomings/ failures/ weaknesses and turn what Satan means for evil into good, as only He can do.

Speak Your Mind
