I would like to start this week by saying Merry Christmas to all the readers who follow my editorials. On Saturday, I will celebrate the birth of Christ. If you don’t believe in Christ or any other higher deity, then thanks to your First Amendment rights guaranteed you by our fought-and-died-for Constitution, you may celebrate anything you wish or nothing at all.
If by some chance you don’t know what the First Amendment says, I give you a refresher. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
