Jewish Group Condemns Anti-Christian 'War on Christmas'Topics: Faith
A group of Jewish Americans says its members are fed up with the war being waged against Christmas. At a National Press Club gathering in Washington, the group's president voiced his organization's feelings when he declared, "Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation is here today to say, 'Enough already. If you're offended by a municipal Christmas tree or Santa Claus in a holiday parade or a manger in a park, get over it.'" He went on to say that banning the word "Christmas" and other references to Jesus makes no sense in the United States. "This is an overwhelmingly Christian nation, and it's a matter of simple courtesy to acknowledge a holiday celebrated by 96 percent of the American people."
