Governor Rick Perry Signs The ‘Merry Christmas’ Bill [POLL]
Last week, Texas Governor Rick Perry, signed the 'Merry Christmas' bill which states “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 ‘Merry Christmas,’ ‘Happy Hanukkah,’ and ‘happy holidays.” On top of that, a school district can also display scenes or symbols that represent the traditional winter celebrations on school property. These symbols include a menorah or a 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.
After Governor Perry signed the bill, he tweeted a photo of him signing the bill.
A website promoting the bill, sponsored by Republican State Rep. Dwayne Bohac and Republican Sen. Robert Nichols, exhibited that the bill is a great idea because political correctness has gotten somewhat out of hand.
