Teabagging For The Baby Jesus

These teabaggers.  They are starting to piss me off.

Redding Woman’s Christmas Carol Initiative Picking Up Allies

Merry Hyatt has found allies in her quest to put an initiative on the ballot next year requiring public schools to play Christmas carols.

Hyatt, who moved to Redding four months ago, said she joined the Redding Tea Party Patriots and recruited several members to help her collect the 433,971 signatures needed by March 29.

Now all you Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, atheist….whatever, just sit back and listen to some good old fashioned Christian myth music.

The initiative would require schools to provide children the opportunity to listen to or perform Christmas carols, and would subject the schools to litigation if the rule isn’t followed.

Yep, sue the schools and make them spend much needed funds defending themselves from bible thumping ass hat authoritarians.

Schools currently are allowed to offer Christmas music as long as it is used for academic purposes rather than devotional purposes and isn’t used to promote a particular religious belief, according to an analysis by the California Legislative Analyst’s Office.

“Bottom line is Christmas is about Christmas,” said Erin Ryan, president of the Redding Tea Party Patriots. “That’s why we have it. It’s not about winter solstice or Kwanzaa. It’s like, ‘wow you guys, it’s called Christmas for a reason.’ “

Then  maybe there should be an initiative that forces schools to teach the true history of Christmas and guess what?  Jesus aint part of it.  But, in the event that Jerk Offs for Jesus are victorious:

“I have two words to say about Ms. Hyatt’s proposal: blatantly unconstitutional,” said Rob Boston, senior policy analyst for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which is based in Washington, D.C., and has a local chapter in Sacramento.

Boston said he heard about the initiative in the news, which isn’t surprising considering national newspapers such as The New York Times have published articles on Hyatt’s efforts.

“In the unlikely event she got enough signatures to put it on the ballot and the even more unlikely event California passed it, it would be struck down by the courts,” Boston said. “The courts have been very clear that public schools aren’t supposed to be in the business of promoting or advocating religion.”

But we know that these conservatarded Christians have a hard time understanding the basics of our constitution.  Fortunately there are plenty of attorneys out there willing to show them the error of their ways.  And it strikes me as typical that the Christians fought the celebration of Christmas for over a thousand years and now it magically belongs to them. 

 Reality.  It never gets in the way of Christian indignation.
