Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) Signs New “Merry Christmas” Bill Into Law

01 Signing the Merry Christmas BillAccording to the AP and Fox News, Texas Governor Rick Perry has signed a special law protecting the rights of Texas public schools to celebrate Christmas along with other holidays. The bill, dubbed the “Merry Christmas Bill” protects them from legal action while allowing the schools to display Christmas decorations along with other holidays, such as Hanukkah, and with secular decorations.

“I realize it’s only June. But it’s a good June and the holidays are coming early this year,” Perry said. ” It’s a shame that a bill like this one I’m signing today is even required, but I’m glad that we’re standing up for religious freedom in this state. Religious freedom does not mean freedom from religion.”

Present at the signing ceremony was the popular Kountze High School Cheerleaders, who have become heroes after they were sued by an anti-religious group and their own school district for displaying banners with Bible scriptures. During the ordeal, Gov. Perry stood by the cheerleaders 01 KounzteCheerleadersalong with Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. The Cheerleaders wore red t-shirts that said, I Cheer For Jesus.

The “Merry Christmas Bill” sponsor, Representative Dwayne Bohac (R-Houston) said he began the bill’s process when he noticed his son’s school erected a “holiday tree” this past December because of fear of litigation. He hopes that the other 49 states do the same. The bill sailed through both the state senate and house. Gov. Perry eagerly signed it.

Speaking of Gov. Perry, Rep. Bohac said, “This is not a governor that shirks away from the tough issues. And this should not be a tough issue, which is what’s even amazing about all this. But this is just political correctness that’s run a-muck and our brains have been completely fallen out as a result.”

  1. What a shame this has gotten so bad that holidays Americans have celebrated since the beginning of the United States have to be made into law so Americans citizens can celebrate their holidays. This is our country and our holidays, cultures, laws and religion why are they being attacked?
