Liberty Counsel has launched its fifteenth annual Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign, pledging to be a “Friend” to those who recognize Christmas and a “Foe” to those who censor it. The campaign educates, and if necessary litigates, to make sure that Christmas and Christian themes are not censored.
The ACLU, atheist organizations, and other like-minded groups are relentless in their quest to secularize Christmas. Using strong-arm tactics, they intimidate communities, retail stores, government offices, and schools into stripping “Christ” from Christmas — while people of faith often feel powerless to resist their bullying.
Since our inception, Liberty Counsel has helped lead the charge to put “Christ” back in Christmas, both in the courts and in the public arena. Our legal team is actively monitoring cases across the country where there is intimidation by officials and groups to remove the celebration of Christmas in public and private sectors.
These threats include atheist groups seeking to ban nativity scenes from public property, senior living centers that prohibit residents from singing Christmas carols, public schools that ban students from wearing the Christmas colors of red and green, school officials who censor religious words from Christmas carols, and retailers which profit from Christmas while pretending it does not exist. In all of these situations, Liberty Counsel has successfully educated and reversed these unconstitutional anti-Christmas actions.
Liberty Counsel first provides a memorandum to offer guidance regarding publicly and privately sponsored religious holiday displays, religious holidays in public schools, and the rights of public school students in the context of religious holidays. Then, we consider further legal action, as warranted.
+ + Help us meet the challenges coming from the ACLU and other secularists!
Being able to fight back against such bullying is more important than ever in 2017. The enemies of Christmas have gotten encouragement from the “We don’t see ourselves as a Christian nation” statements coming from radical secularists with the loudest voices and even members of our own government!

Our powerful Christmas campaign is a unique opportunity to proclaim Christ this season. Contrary to what the ACLU and secular organizations may stand for in the public square, an overwhelming majority of Americans celebrate “Christmas.” The words “Merry Christmas” still roll off of our lips. And we proudly display the lifestyle and symbols celebrating the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ, for whose birth Christmas is celebrated. No secular organization is going to make honoring Christ politically incorrect for us! We will help faithful Americans stand their ground with your support.
God bless you for your support,
P.S. This year we want to help every believer enjoy a joyous Christmas holiday in which they can freely celebrate the Reason for the Season! With your gift of any amount, we will send you our I Love Christmas oval sticker.
