Texas Town Removes Christmas Banners‏

The utility company in New Braunfels, Texas removed two giant ‘Keep Christ in Christmas’ banners after they received complaints about the nature of the signs

The banners are owned by the Knights of Columbus and were installed by New Braunfels Utilities several weeks ago. But a spokesperson for the company said it was a mistake and the signs have since been removed.

“Regardless of whether one agrees or disagrees with the message, NBU is a municipal utility and cannot lawfully display a religious message,” said Gretchen Reuwer, the utility’s communications manager.  She said their policy does not allow any signs or banners promoting a specific religious message.

The removal of the signs has sparked outrage in the community – especially among members of the Knights of Columbus.  “The bottom line is Christ is the reason for the Christmas season,” Joe Hernandez told Fox News. “He’s the reason for the special holiday – his birthday.”

Hernandez, and other members of the Knights of Columbus, said they want to know who complained – and why they took issue with the banner.
“All we were doing was voicing our opinion – that Christ should be kept in Christmas,” Hernandez said.


Some opinions are less equal than others. apparently

The only question for me is, is there any limit to the amount of abuse the American people will tolerate? Based on the weakness, gullibility, and stupidity i see coming from the American people, i think not.

Even worse, i think those people are now so used to all the lies and abuse that they either no longer even notice, or wrose, they have become used to it and don't mind.

It's such a typical Liberal tactic: Take down or remove something and then pitch a fit when someone tries to put it back. It's far easier to tear down than it is to build up, and Liberals illustrate this again and again.

These people cite the establishment clause ("Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion") but forget the second part("or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"). By removing all vestiges of religion, they are denying believers thei rights. It was never intended that there be NO religion only no state religion like in Europe.
