A conservative legal defense organization is working to ease the fears of those who may be apprehensive about extending Christmas greetings.
Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) says his organization routinely receives questions from parents about school holiday programs and concerns from employees about the legality of office decorations, and he asserts that plenty of legal precedence supports Christian well-wishers at Christmas.
"The good news is that legally there is tremendous protection in all these forms with regards to individuals' rights to live their faith, share their faith, including recognizing Christmas," he reports.
PJI has actually introduced a new legal resource called the Christmas Q&A.
"Parents and students can feel more confident with this information, as well as churches wanting to put up a public display or recognition of Christmas in the public places," Dacus relays.
He adds that the "valuable new resource" conveys "tremendous empowerment."
