Use the WOR -- line that number is 713. 07. We -- to the last hour of the week I guess I gotta do a lot of tension up but first let me -- let me talk to Emily in Taylor's. Merry Christmas and. Com Mary Christmas yeah. -- -- and I question course from the minute they said that that you man that's flying their flags. Act fast -- What I don't know -- that they understood that I was wondering if we are in I was wondering what the implications of I only flying com our flag at half mass. First citizens for US service. I guess I don't quite understand what you're asking here. Ari are you are have you seen some flags locally. Arrogant an -- and and I think I had hurt. And include debt what. Debt markets said that we were gonna fly are stacked up like that -- -- -- -- Nelson Mandela and I believe a couple of hours ago Fox News reported dead Obama had to look ahead and ordered that yes and you're concerned is because Nelson Mandela is not a US citizen. I don't -- Idea I don't I don't have any problems that. I'm sure it's not the first time. Right. I mean we've had world leaders die before and the president can order of the flags. Bed at half staff right. I could I think so I could be totally wrong about that I'd but I I don't have any problems that the folks are welcome to comment. I I wonder if from. Then that would be -- places like the post office. But if I remember right the governor. The governors the one who would be in charge of that and south Carolina at any place other than effort for state offices right in the state offices. I don't know. Somebody driving by a post office -- are the flags. At half staff. I've been out obviously am I'm here to studio so I don't know. But maybe as far as anybody on the prom without a -- my -- I don't have -- that but anyway thank you Emily. She should -- done what everyone asked whatever's observation you wanna make his find. So I I kind of work this morning and I you know I'm going through. All the email I get thousands every day. And I ran across couple. This one Ross. Hi my name is -- did. Once and I'll be I think is the way you sense. My wife Candace and I'd just -- degree drove from Dallas Texas. To be closer to our two grand babies. I'm so happy to have discovered 1063. And your show living in Dallas. I listened to too conservative radio stations WB AP and KR LD. So I got an email from a friend in Dallas thought it might interest you which one of our conservative legislators. Might eye contact. Contacted check into this for South Carolina. From a staunch Reagan conservative Christian thanks -- well first lawyer -- welcome aboard. We get that kind of stuff all the time it's always more encouraging that I can ever tell you. Especially folks. Moving here from other parts of the country in enjoying the show and enjoying our radio station now what what -- may. Was -- Biden was unaware of this. There are laws spring up cross country including taxes. Called Merry Christmas walls. And apparently this is something that is catching on I think Rick Perry signed it into law in Texas. Earlier this year. And it's just so weird because. Ed sent me this email. About the Merry Christmas wall in Texas. And lo and behold. There's this talk -- about this. At foxnews.com. Today because a school has decided. To just absolutely betrayed or ignoring the wall. So chemist Isaac had ties in to a current thing that we got going in America about laws and should they be abated and who. You know who it who can disobey them and no one of the consequences if you do don't seem to be many if you're the president. But anyway Todd storms writes about tennis. You know we've always talked on this program about the war on Christmas and it -- about this -- -- year we've covered several stories this week about this. We have the story yesterday the article. Yeah and Milwaukee journal sentinel by getting Curtis sales -- is asking the question why is Santa calls always white tissue mistake yesterday well today. The headline is school bans Christmas trees there and colors red and green. And here's what Todd -- reports that relates back to this email I got from it. And elementary school in Frisco Texas. Is believed to be the first in the state to violate the Merry Christmas law. After the school decided to abandon. Christmas trees. And even the colors red and green. From an upcoming quote quote winter party. Boys and girls who attend that Nichols elementary school when your party. Will not be able to make any reference to Christmas. Or any other religious holiday Christmas trees are banned along with the colors red green. Patty how do you -- -- I mean these these folks are just not it's. The rules were sent appearance in an email from the school's PTA. And reported by my fox DFW Dallas Fort Worth dot com. Ironically. The school is located in the district of state representative pat Fallon the author of the bill signed into law in June. -- -- the fact. That students and staff are permitted to discuss. Winter holidays as they please. Fallon told -- storms he was alerted by an angry parent quote. When Governor Perry signed a Merry Christmas -- clearly that didn't solve the issues the battle rages on it's distressing. Now the school district released a statement. Noting quote the school was aware of this it was not an official PGA correspondents. Either. There have never been -- limitations. On what students wire -- What they bring to share with their classmates on party days what greetings people exchange with -- each other etc. and so. But represented -- Fallon said contrary to the school district statement. The band remains in place he also said he spoke to the superintendent. And learn that the school district was letting principles set their own policies regarding the holiday celebrations. He said quote that leads to confusion. This interpretation and flaunting of the hole. Allen said the ban on Christmas trees and traditional holiday colors remains in place. And calls it quote unnecessary. Inappropriate. And quite frankly draconian in nature. After a meeting between the principal and the PTA the school decided to keep the roles in place. Quote -- the principles said they didn't want to offend any families. And since each family donates money they feel this is the best policy read an email sent to representative talent. -- ornament. What affinity for what about all the families. Who might be offended by not being able to to celebrate Christmas. I'm always the case folks about that. How many times -- we discussed this and heard this. We don't wanna offend anybody ornament it. Aren't you offending people. Who appreciate Christmas and celebrate Christmas and who -- Christian and oh my goodness this this is that it's just another in a long line of stories. Representative Fallon. Fired off a letter to every school official in this district reminding them of the Texas Merry Christmas -- He said quote I feel like my calling in life just to protect the students parents and teachers they have a constitutional. Right. To express themselves they do have freedom. A religion. Texas law clearly permits Christmas cleaned the celebrations events and displays. The district. May also displaced scenes are symbols with traditional winter holidays and other words nativity scenes Christmas trees minorities etc. And he said he was shocked. At the number of calls his office has received. From listened to the words here nervous. Teachers and principals. Wondering. What they could and could not him. We talked about this again this week. You know all these people who send these threatening. Letters including the casing Greenville county. This week. Thank goodness judge Jim Ross Anderson junior. Denied the request for the preliminary injunction concerning Mountain View elementary -- their fifth grade graduation. A -- north Greenville. And of of course to just sit -- -- you you folks are crazy -- we're still gonna have a trial but also this case -- and -- killed the your repertory academy. Ready ATF the alliance defending freedom stepped in sent out letters to thirteen thousand district in the country. I mean becoming at the time teachers and principals are confused they've been so brainwashed by the left and then we have this goal. School Chris. East Point something did down in Columbia remember they told her students they couldn't be involved in -- operation Christmas child. You know putting the toys ensure Bausch and I just it's just because. It that it was affiliated with Franklin Graham's organization right. And it BAC OJ in the -- effort pointed out there it is it is been settled in case after case after case. Do not be confused about this if you're a teacher or principal anybody else the courts have said. You can celebrate Christmas. How how can you be more clearer. Now get this different percent of the one Texas said one teacher wanted to do elf on the shelf. And she thought she did all. Show. My granddaughter loves that and by the way. So storage rights so this is what it's come to an American you've got college educated teachers. Terrified. To put even a choice elf on the shelves. Because she's thinking she might get sued. By the ACLU or some other left wing anti Christmas group. He says unfortunately there are no criminal penalties for violating the Merry Christmas law in Texas. Perhaps represented a -- to offer an amendment. In lieu of jail time may be violators would be subjected to a lump of coal on Christmas Day and of course the original email I got it was asking. Who could contact here in South Carolina may -- -- get somebody to pass a Merry Christmas law. In South Carolina which in -- says what we already know. -- you you can celebrate Christmas in any way you want to. At a public school or anywhere else. I just. Even they even wanted to -- not just Christmas trees the cult. -- red and green. Over the hope this is how successful the left has been. In confusing people threatening people getting people to back down IE Pickens counting earlier this year. I mean this is just. The war continues fox. I don't revisit to this other case concerning this back Kim that made news in Georgia. Earlier this week the first -- -- -- -- disarm up I was gonna talk to double but he just -- up. That frees up -- line -- advantage talk Klein's -- 2329673. Spartanburg. 5749673. -- it would make more sense. In the school only ban the color green why would it make more sense. -- on 385. Flags at Hillcrest high school. Half staff is I've had several calls -- his run for the flags that have stacked the deck academy. So apparently I guess the governor has order debt right would that be the governor. I do is four a state school yes eyes and I imagine it would I guess I don't food people we're calling in about post office the post offices in Spartanburg since millionaire at half staff through there -- -- -- -- this. Russ Spartanburg community college -- and is flying their flags at half staff this and Don and Roebuck -- didn't they do best. For Margaret Thatcher when she passed away I I think so. But a -- Ross I talked to a security guard at a business that I service this morning. And they put their flags at half staff said it was an order from the president I thought. This kind of -- observance. Was reserved for American leaders and servicemen and women or is this away from the US to show the reverence. For -- south. African president an honest question I don't know will from Greenville. It would be over Mandela there wouldn't be anything else out there are there Mandela's death. But I. As I tell you I don't. Have a problem it's. But it fairly. All of somebody sent another text Ross. Read for communism so it would make sense if the schools only that it colored green not the color red. Aren't you also told you when we were talking about this. Case in Greenville county earlier this week. Over Mountain View elementary north rebuild a judge Anderson you know -- -- decided not to grant the request for a preliminary injunction that would have banned. You know any kind of observance in a chapel or even a prayer at one of these events at a school. I mentioned. This case down in Georgia. Where they came back from Thanksgiving holiday and all the Christmas cards in school that the teachers have put up had been removed. And there was another part of the story which Todd storm writes about a -- Ohio. And just buttresses the point. He writes it was November 12. His wife was on the phone she was reading an email that she had just received from her boss. At Sally. Is better our elementary school in Statesboro Georgia. Quote as of today if you have a Bible verse on your school email. And or Bible verse posted in the classroom. Please remove it immediately. Stars has but it was the next part of that email that made mr. -- Trimble quote if a student led prayer is initiated. You meaning the teacher you must remove yourself and step away from that group the email read. Cook told storms in a telephone interview he was dumb founded quote. They have to physically turn their backs on their prayer walk away from the prayer. That just completely overstepped so many lives. Start so mr. -- started Bullitt county citizens. For religious liberties. A grassroots gathering of local residents who wanna stop the erosion of religious liberties in their community. You know we need like I agree evoke Irish farmer Terry Anderson county Pickens County. On coney -- citizens' group -- religiously. Quote for me this is not so much a matter of christianity is it is a matter of civil liberty -- -- storms I fear of then it's more of -- do not stand firm against the progressive cancer. A political correctness that is eating away at our society. We may not have much time left before we lose bowl individual liberty. Jeremy dies an attorney for liberty institute which is a legal firm that handles religious liberty cases. Is in Statesboro Georgia and expected to address the board of education about this controversy. Quote -- Bullitt county board of education. Has created a hostile environment toward religious liberty in general. It's not religion that's being driven out of the schools it's one single religion christianity. The bullet county board of education edict demanding teachers Clinton's. Christianity from their classrooms. Comes -- becomes amid a season of religious turmoil in that community. In April Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Filed a complaint with the school district over prayers at school events as well as teachers participating in the prayers. According to the email Cooke's wife god that complaint here we go again led to the district wide crackdown on the Christian faith quote. Teachers are told. If you're gonna work here. You're going to have to check your rights at the door he said the board of education. Has overstepped its bounds. And implemented things they don't have the authority to do especially when it comes to matters a private expression expression. Rob kicked -- said his wife experience that attitude firsthand after she was told to remove a Bible verse greens Saber on her school computer. She's a third grade teacher. At Brooklyn elementary school we talked about this earlier this week sometimes the screen -- would pop up. On the classroom Smart board making it doable by the students well. Quote she was asked to remove it because it was disrupting the classroom and it could offend someone -- letters said. No formal complaint was made. But my wife took it off because her boss told her to. Had she decided to leave it she could have been fire. -- letter also told star -- another teacher in the school was told to stop listening to Christian music in the classroom. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes leader was called into the office. And told to remove Bible verses that appeared on the club's bulletin board this approach for Christian athletes. But you also said they display featuring Christmas cards made by teachers at the school. Was removed from the whole way it was relocated to a room where children couldn't save the cards. The board of education dismissed the concerns of teachers in a statement. Quote the Bullitt county board of education has not changed or adopted any policies. Prohibiting the rights of school system employees to practice their constitutional rights of religious expression however. There has been a recent reminder to school principals about established legal requirement. In which we must adhere the First Amendment to the US constitution. Along with subsequent US court rulings addressed these rights and restrictions. I mean this is how they work. They lie they're -- informed they're idiotic they're stupid and there educators when it comes to things like this. It's it's just phenomenal. So thank goodness we've got these organizations up to -- general who wanted to play and not just Christmas trees but even the colors red and green. And then -- everything else. -- comments welcome. Right back after this quick break it's 1126. All right Tony five seconds we've got a Fox News level one special report on the death of Nelson Mandela. Rush I say the flag should be at half staff at every day. For soldiers that die every day in and nods -- a foreign president.

Yeah I don't think in there and I don't I wouldn't see that being challenger specially in the state are well -- choose courses aren't golf course. Well again in closing I want to assure you there. Now that you -- not -- be safe be say -- A couple of other things. Man I got an email Ole miss -- and this would come this was 1142. Last night. -- today has South Carolina upstate public school. I had to use my driver's license for identification. Even more. When I had previously been there they scanned my license into their system today. I only had to inner my license number. And -- brought up my picture and name for the visitor pass they keep it on file. So you say you wanna make people think here's a few thoughts do the people who complain about voter ID. Also complain about -- good driver's license to visit a public school. Is that possibly racist also. And will the Obama administration -- Eric Holder and the Justice Department now investigate. South Carolina public schools for this treatment of our citizens. Well know what they'll say is lose securing its okay -- anything any kind of you know right can be violated. For the middle whatever it is that can be in the name of security. But I get your point I did notice. Some news out of North Carolina this morning. This is from channel seven's website WS BA dot com north Carolina's unemployed soon we'll have to provide photo YDE. To get their weekly jobless benefits. People will continue to be able to file for benefits by telephone or online but don't have to present. They've photo ID at their local workforce development office within four weeks of filing likely starting February 1 of next year. Day you'll Falwell. Has the division of employment security in North Carolina. He said this Wednesday the new requirements are designed get this folks to combat an increasing number of claims. In which a person uses someone else's name or Social Security number. And he said the state of North Carolina. Then has to try to get a refund. From the unsuspecting victims. Of identity theft. Now several states already require photo ID to get these benefits Falwell says his agency. In north your money in February. Are also gonna require more details. From the benefit recipients. About job searchers to. North Carolina. Going through some changes here recently cracked and I don't I guess that's racist -- And I got this. Russia please see the attached copy of my son's homework assignment this was given to him. By miss. Irvine Irvine. A sixth grade English teacher -- middle school. I can't possibly imagine what goes on in a person's head. That makes the -- disseminate such rubbish to a classroom full of six graders just weeks before Christmas. This is not just an attack on the concept of Santa Claus and gift giving in my opinion -- it seems to me that anybody. Who is this hell bent on destroying the concept of Christmas to a bunch of six graders. Probably hasn't -- cowardly agenda of attacking christianity and and Christians most beloved holiday celebrating the birth of Jesus. When you read this assignment it just seems so warped and demented and so many different levels. Again I'm simply blown away at the mindset and -- agenda. Of someone who is capable of altering such rubbish and and disseminating best job to a room full of six graders just weeks before Christmas. I complained about the situation to the principle of -- middle school. Ms. Gardiner. A handful of other upset parents also brought this to our attention. She was very professional. Caring and responsive she said to her she had missed Irvine pulled this assignment from all of the children. She also admitted to me. That she thought the assignment was done in very poor taste I cannot imagine the benefit of this assignment and I cannot. See how this assignment is conducive to educating children. In a positive learning environment I cannot help but wonder -- the teacher is taking some sort of perverse pleasure. In ending this crap out to a bunch of six graders. Bottom line is no sixth grade teacher has the right to trash my son's most cherished childhood memories and cause him to question his beliefs. If you feel this information is interesting compelling or newsworthy feel free to bring up the discussion on your program Merry Christmas to you and your family. And it's signed Kirk so well. But I what I saw this. I was really really obviously curious. As to what you know was going on here. And what it seems to me he sent me. A file here. That has a picture all of what the assignment look like. And here's here's what he sent me. There is -- writing assignment number one tempest. And it's is in many of Shakespeare's plays including the tempest the younger generation comes along to redeem the older generation ore to shore are to show. That there is hope for the future all from the older generation parents will fight even to death. But the son or daughter will fall in love and Barry ending the family feud there is often the notion that the young people are more simple more natural. Less corrupted than those who have lived longer. And then here comes the controversial -- in similar terms. We often think of the young people is being naive. Or having illusions about the world whereas older people are often described as. Disillusioned. A prime modern example of this idea. Is that many children believed in Santa -- They are under the illusion that Santa Claus exists. And will bring them fabulous presence for Christmas morning as they get older they realize there is no Santa -- And they get even older and have children. Not only is there no senate closed bring presents but the full reality of the situation hits them. -- say our senate and have to face the reality of the shopping malls and the bills to be paid for many people the joy of Christmas Day experienced as children. Becomes lost. And Christmas becomes a dreaded time of year they become completely. Disillusioned. Some people say that ignorance is bliss. Maybe ignorant ignorance creates -- maintains illusions perhaps some illusions are necessary and life with everything in life stripped to the -- reality perhaps. We would all be too disillusioned and would feel hopeless just imagine if we knew every. In reality. What all the politicians and corporate giants in the media and every one were really doing how would would would the world look at us think of the hullabaloo. The various scandals that are exposed by the media cause suppose everything -- poster was all the time. Your assignment. Is to write a composition. In which you and owns. About the value or detriment. Of having allusions in life. Now that's the assignment. According to this listener. For a bunch of six graders. Bad Malden mills -- Do you think that. We'll take some calls on this or anything else quick break 1146 back in a moment. Harry text message trust my daughters of Malden -- school while I'm very. Pleased with the administration in general and specifically. Rossi Gardner my daughter. And that court teacher we battled all year -- with. Your agenda I see she is still and it by the way she also had an Obama bumper sticker on her car then two figures. -- Gary Europe and a time line to answer. Yes but it or make a comment on the -- the Christmas -- sure and Barack. I think I'd make and export it broke what Christmas is actually against god and they take it in the Bible in several place. -- That the shepherds were in the field living when the Angel came to remember. And it worked walked as a share as. November December January and February are the worst when her mark in the air they are not in the field there and stable. They -- December 25. Because it is -- celebration of the salt sedation. Which is the homage to use all admit for a strong guy. Let me just stop it would mean is something we talk with wedeman hang -- and we talked about this before if you wanna look at it that way Terry you can. I I disagree totally with your original assertion well let me tell you promote. Brake lights but I just want to date here is an insult to god and I I don't everyday and hiding your children that's breaking commandment. I'm one of my line to my children about about Shannon well. Listen you do richer way buddy I'll do it mind but is forest Christ it fresh farms are well as. -- Christ is concerned. I think it's a fabulous staying. Any day of the year. Any time. To celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus. Or well or are -- -- you're welcome to disagree with added you can you can talk about paganism all you want that's fine. Will just agreed to disagree but Algeria's forced me in my household. We can we think it's a wonderful thing. To celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus. -- simple enough right right okay. Thank you for the call. It just amazes me yeah. Winder Georgia the world. What -- hero come on you faithful. And then I hear people. Trying to use whatever. Tactic they want. Detroit at Teradata is still very sent additional very -- Can we just. First second. Agree. Christmas is Christmas it's called that for a reason. It the first part of that is Christ. Erroneous edit in this modern world in which we live. For many people Christmas is about toys and about Santa Claus and about. What you've Goddard didn't get under the Christmas tree it's Christmas crowd. And for anybody use confused about this again. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ it doesn't matter what day it is Terry's right about one thing you should be celebrated every. -- major holidays Easter is far more important than Christmas but Christmas is the celebration. Of the birth. Of Christ Jesus in any way shape or form. Did people want to use this time a year any Tommy year to celebrate that how could that be a bad thing. -- people wanna use whatever tactic to tear that down I find it very -- -- at 1153. I don't have time to get a payment you can read in cnet's news.com. Talking about schools I mentioned this headline. Fifth greater suspended. For shooting an imaginary arrow at a classmate. The Rutherford Institute announced on Wednesday it's come to the defense about ten year old boy in Pennsylvania. Who was suspended. Under based school zero tolerance policy. When he dared to shoot an imaginary. -- And a fellow classmate. Using nothing more than his hands. And his imagination. Been threatened with suspension. Are you William in Spartanburg you get the last called the week making good. There will be good road brought up the democratic leadership laughter let -- a lot of them but it -- the -- You don't that people they're buying but well it will hold it as well won't you won't -- a diet. I roll back or not. Kind of ties into that famous saying. You know government to give the big enough to give you everything you want is also a government big enough to take everything that you have. -- Absolutely thank you sir and our Christmas rush please. Please pray. For my son's safety. He has on his way to Fort Hood. As we speak this will be his second. Deployment.
