Army tells soldiers the word “Christmas” is forbidden. Here’s what I would have told my soldiers: “This is an unconstitutional directive, therefor illegal, thus disobedience is justified, defensible, and expected. Merry Christmas, gentlemen. I am proud to know you!” I cannot believe that our troops would even consider obeying this order….

Soldiers at Camp Shelby (Roy C Martin)

The Democrat’s war against Christianity continues…
Camp Shelby soldiers were told not to say “Christmas” this year.
It’s offensive.
Todd Starnes at FOX News reported:

Don’t say Christmas.

That’s the message that was conveyed to a group of soldiers at Camp Shelby by an equal opportunity officer from the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, according to a soldier who attended a recent briefing.

“It’s unbelievable that the Army would ban ‘Christmas’ like it’s a bad word,” said Michael Berry, an attorney with the Liberty Institute, a legal firm representing the unidentified soldier.

Two weeks ago, a routine meeting was held at the Mississippi base with various leaders of the 158th Infantry Brigade. During the meeting, they discussed an upcoming Christmas football tournament. The equal opportunity officer immediately objected to the usage of the word “Christmas.”

“Our equal opportunity representative stopped the briefing and told us that we can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me. “Almost the entire room blew up. Everybody was frustrated. The equal opportunity rep told our commander that not everyone celebrates Christmas and we couldn’t say Christmas celebration. It had to be holiday celebration.”

The soldier said there was a brief, but heated discussion about political correctness. At one point, the equal opportunity representative tried to deflect the criticism by pointing out it was the Army’s rules – not hers.

    The reporter seems to be a bit disingenuous. An officer at this camp noted that soldiers can say Christmas, just that official Army functions can’t. Last I heard individual soldiers don’t tell the Army what to name Army events. But the news reports go on to say that the Army has no such prohibition. So, where’s the story here? Either the Army is following guidelines against promoting specific religions, or the officer was wrong and there’s no prohibition. In the latter case, perhaps the reporter should have checked that out first. But in any case, soldiers are not prohibited from saying “Christmas.”
