State representative introducing “Merry Christmas” legislation
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma state representative is introducing a bill that claims to protect teachers and their religious beliefs.
Oklahoma State Rep. Bobby Cleveland announced that he plans on introducing a bill that would let public school teachers and staff say “Merry Christmas” without fear of retribution.
“There is a war on Christians and Christmas, and anyone who would deny that is not paying close enough attention,” said Rep. Cleveland. “This bill will create a layer of protection for our public school teachers and staff to freely discuss and celebrate Christmas without worrying about offending someone.”
The bill would also allow public schools to display nativity scenes and allow teachers to discuss the history of Christmas.
