Institute On the Constitution: Christmas Is Politically Correct

It seems like every Christmas Season we suffer through the same old anti-Christian and anti-American propaganda designed to eliminate Christian signs and symbols from the public arena.

So, I think it timely to revisit the case that the birth of Jesus Christ is the most significant political event in the history of the universe.

Why? Well simply put, liberty is the product of order, not chaos. And a culture that values, promotes and protects ordered liberty cannot exist absent the acknowledgement of the Author of liberty, the Living and Everlasting God of the Bible whose Son is Jesus Christ.

At Christmas, we celebrate the fact that He entered His own creation and sacrificed His life to cover our sins.

Now you may not share the Christian beliefs I’ve just described, but that doesn’t affect my point here because it is indisputable that the founders of American government believed them and established a system of law and liberty based on them.

So, your disbelief in them does not extinguish them.

Whatever beliefs you personally hold, please remember that the acknowledgement of Jesus Christ as the Source of Law and Government is the very first presupposition of American government. Therefore, celebrating Christmas through Nativity displays, public prayer, sacred song, and all other forms of Christian witness are consistent with and supportive of the American View of Law and Liberty and are the essence of American government.

Publicly celebrating the blessed birth of the Savior of the World is not only lawful, it is the most politically correct thing you can ever do.
