I’m grateful for Alliance Defending Freedom standing firm for religious freedom.
They sent a letter to an Alabama school district after it banned the word “Easter” at an elementary school in what the district said were the “interests of religious diversity”—“and as a way to respect and honor everybody’s differences.”
If that’s true, then why ban the word Easter? It’s censorship pure and simple.
The letter from ADF explained that the Supreme Court has acknowledged that government has long recognized holidays with religious significance.
The school district ban on Easter jeopardizes the First Amendment freedoms of students and teachers—and sets a dangerous course for schools elsewhere!
We can’t sit by and allow political correctness to dictate rules for acceptable speech in schools.
