David, of course public money should not be used to wish constituents "Merry Christmas" or any other religious expression and the public is just going to have to get over it.  If they want to send me a message that they are going to raise the taxes on corporations and wealthy 1% and lower taxes on small business and wages, or that social security is secure and will not be raided, or our municipal and state will receive help to restore education, public safety, and services, and want to wish me good health and prosperity, then I am willing to pay for that postage.  Otherwise, pay for their own religious sentiments.  

As to ""Senators may not use the frank to mail holiday cards. However, Senators may use officially related funds to mail holiday cards to constituents."

Isn't this double talks? Senators may not use the frank ... Senators may use officially related funds to mail holiday cards to constituents."  

What is it, may not or may?

James, I am with you, I don't like it either.  Sylvia, I am a teacher also.  I know it happens.  I guess that is why we are here on this website.:)

HA - The term escapes me, but I just find it so funny the most oppressive group in America absolutely thrives on playing the victim... because Chistians have it soooo rough in our country. Please.

Sorry, about that Troy.

I am all of a sudden very sad. Any article that starts with "the PC Police..." is very rarely - if ever - an intelectual endevour

David, I have never heard of Black Peter before.  Kind of like the neolithic myth god of the sea with a trident turned into the Christian  devil with trident and horns and turned red.  Myths do have a way of changing with the culture, don't they.

For anyone interested....

Here is what my son was working on at school. I scanned these and cropped them. The other side of each page had a small scene which he colored (poorly) with crayons.

Not exactly an objective view, but I learned a little culture at least.

I've never heard of Black Pete

Farther42. The "suggestions" you mention are a lot more common than you think. I recently retired as a teacher (NYC) and I have witnessed more than one pedagogue attempting to influence the students about Christianity.

I understand that, Earther, but I don't have to like it.
