Faith & Freedom Coalition reports on already debunked "War on Christmas" story

The Religious Right has once again proven, not only that it is still very much alive, but that it could not care less about the truth by reporting on another story that has already been debunked.

Ralph Freed's Faith & Freedom Coalition yesterday decided to report on the latest atrocity in the "War on Christmas."

"In August, TX Gov. Rick Perry signed into law the 'Merry Christmas Bill,' which legally permits students and teacher to use traditional holiday greetings such as 'Merry Christmas' or 'Happy Hanukkah' and also protects traditional holiday symbols. Lawmakers in the state hoped it would put an end to the 'War on Christmas' scandals that plague us each winter. Unfortunately, officials at Nichols Elementary School in Waco, TX have already violated the new law, banning all reference to Christmas, from Christmas trees to the colors red and green, in their upcoming 'Winter Party.'"

The Coalition proceeds to encourage its followers to "Contact Principal Courtney Murphy & school board president Renee Ehmke and tell them that the parents and students at Nichols Elementary are guaranteed the right to celebrate Christmas," after which it supplies their telephone numbers.

What the Coalition encourages its followers to do, however, is something they clearly have not done themselves.

This is the same phony agenda-driven journalism perpetuated by Todd Starnes, who himself was caught hyping up a phony "War on Christmas" for the second time in less than a week.

If the Faith & Freedom Coalition had spent even five minutes even doing what they encouraged their followers to do, they would have known this story was a complete fabrication. Once again, the agenda has proven infinitely more important than the truth.
