Wait until the Wiccans hold their celebration. Happy Witch's Day. Let's see how the Righteous react to them.

Its a terrifically sad day when this is all politicians can accomplish, and it's news, no less. There never was a law against saying Merry Christmas and even this law provides for allowing inclusion of other traditions.

I'm surely gladdd that all of the uneducated Texas children that have been left behind due to a Lousy Education System are now safe to wish anyone Merry Christmas.....But,they probably can't spell It.

Nice of Perry to take a break from signing death warrants to bring holiday cheer to Texans.
