After carols, what's next?

I believe that when President Obama first ran for president, he said his mission was to fundamentally change America. The latest fiasco at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center – of not allowing teenagers to sing Silent Night or Joy to the World – is a prime example of how well this administration is accomplishing that goal.

Christmas was declared a federal holiday in 1870 by President Grant. It was, and is still, called “Christmas,” not “Holiday.” Christmas carols are a part of Christmas, which is the celebration of Christ’s Mass.

I suppose that next the VA center will ban the Pledge of Allegiance since it still has the words “under God” in it.
