Sweet Jesus!!! ... Stop It!!!

From Thursday's (12/13/07) Progress Report:

RELIGION -- REP. KING JOINS WAR ON CHRISTMAS, CALLS ON AMERICANS TO 'WORSHIP CHRIST': Rep. Steve King recently (R-IA) introduced legislation recognizing the "importance of Christmas and the Christian faith," despite previously opposing resolutions recognizing the Muslim celebration of Ramadan and the Hindu Diwali. Yesterday on Fox News, King went further, decrying an "assault on Christmas" from "secularists" who want to "eradicate Christ from Christmas." Ignoring the Constitution, King claimed America is really a "Christian nation." "[L]et's worship Christ and let's celebrate Christmas for the right reasons," he proclaimed. King attacked the nine "liberal Democrat" "naysayers" who voted against the bill. In response, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) ripped King's religious zealotry as "another sad attempt by conservative Republicans to skew the line between church and state." King isn't alone. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee both have declared that America is a Christian nation.

Up here, Rep. McDermott got all sorts of flak from people, but he was right to vote against the insanity.
