Drew Edmonson Bans Christmas. Literally.

RedState has a disturbing press release about an attorney general who infringes the free speech of employees just because they work for a government-funded institution. Ridiculous. 

Drew Edmondson is the Oklahoma Attorney General.  Recently he rounded up conservative activists and threw them in jail for circulating petitions to get conservatives on the ballot.

Now, however, Oklahoma Atty Gen. Drew Edmondson has done something even nuttier.  He has issued an advisory opinion from the Attorney General’s Office directing universities and public employees in Oklahoma to refrain from using or writing the word “Christmas.”

Mark Tapscott with the Washington Examiner has the details.  Mark notes, “Edmondson issued an advisory opinion to officials at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford advising them that the word “Christmas” should not be spoken by any employee of the state school, not written in any official holiday decorations.”

Attorney General Edmondson can be reached at 405-521-3921.  Please call and wish him a Merry Christmas and ask why he banned Christmas.

All the best and

Merry Christmas to you,
