He said that liberals and atheists and kittens were declaring a war on Christmas and now we have this news:
WASHINGTON, DCÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬?In a sudden and unexpected blow to the Americans working to protect the holiday, liberal U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Stephen Reinhardt ruled the private celebration of Christmas unconstitutional Monday.
“In accordance with my activist agenda to secularize the nation, this court finds Christmas to be unlawful,” Judge Reinhardt said. “The celebration of the birth of the philosopher JesusÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬?be it in the form of gift-giving, the singing of carols, fanciful decorations, or general good cheer and warm feelings amongst familiesÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬?is in violation of the First Amendment principles upon which this great nation was founded.”
In addition to forbidding the celebration of Christmas in any form, Judge Reinhardt has made it illegal to say “Merry Christmas.” Instead, he has ruled that Americans must say “Happy Holidays” or “Vacaciones Felices” if they wish to extend good tidings.
Within an hour of the judge’s verdict, National Guard troops were mobilized to enforce the controversial ruling.
