Christmas crib returns to school

Well, folks, it seems like the Legislature was struck by the Holy Spirit for a few minutes and passed a law which will allow Christmas cribs in public schools. How much do you want to bet it will be challenged by every anti-religious group under the sun?

By margins of 145-2 in the state house and 29-0 in the state senate, Texas has passed legislation permitting public schools to display “a menorah or a Christmas image such as a nativity scene or Christmas tree, if the display includes a scene or symbol of more than one religion; or one religion and at least one secular scene or symbol.”

“A display relating to a traditional winter celebration may not include a message that encourages adherence to a particular religious belief,” the legislation stated.

In addition, the law provides that “a school district may educate students about the history of traditional winter celebrations, and allow students and district staff to offer traditional greetings regarding the celebrations, including: (1)’Merry Christmas’; (2)’Happy Hanukkah’; and (3) ‘happy holidays.’”
