TX rep. introduces 'Merry Christmas Bill'

Though it didn't affect this year's events, a Texas state legislator is introducing a measure he hopes will protect teachers and school administrators who want to refer to Christmas as Christmas.

Texas state Rep. Dwayne Bohac (R) says he has discovered that the teachers and administrators at his son's school are afraid of mentioning Christmas or Hanukkah during the holidays.

"The district chooses to call the break a 'holiday break' or a 'holiday party,' then the teachers kind of follow the lead, and they do the same thing when, in fact, they should have the freedom and liberty to express these religious winter celebrations form Hanukkah, to Christmas, to you name it," Bohac contends.

So, he is introducing what he calls the "Merry Christmas Bill" to ensure that teachers and school administrators can freely express Christmas and other holiday wishes without fear.
