Dear Ms.Weinberg,

I want to take this opportunity to respond to your letter warning all public schools in Tennessee not to celebrate Christmas. The ACLU has long since been known for its stand against Christianity. Actually ACLU means "Against Christians liberties Union".

The ACLU takes a firm stand in believing in "Freedom From Religion" in public schools when it comes to Christianity. The ACLU is also firm in its belief in "Freedom Of Religion" when it comes to secular religions such as Atheism, skepticism and secular humanism.

Religion is not being taken out of our public schools. Christianity is only being replaced with the religion of secular humanism. Your agenda seems to be wiping out all expressions of faith in God from public life.

I'm sick and tired of Christians having their religious freedom taken away by lawsuits threatened and being brought on by the ACLU. The cases for their agenda are then heard in courts made up of unelected, unaccountable, atheist judges. The agenda now seems to be for the schools to turn Christmas over to Frosty the snowman and Rudolph and his friends and wish a secular happy holiday to all. I was in school during the years of the "great depression". We had Bible reading and prayer every day. We never heard of such things as school shootings. Secular humanism, with help from the ACLU has replaced God in the classroom with drugs, guns, condoms, counselors and policemen. Suicide among young people is at an all-time high. Secular humanism, with its help from ACLU has filled our prisons, drug centers and mental hospitals with young adults.

Secular humanism is not evidence of smartness or strong mindedness. Atheists have never done one good thing for mankind that I am aware of. I do not believe they can point to a hospital, orphans home, college or university that is here because they have lived. I cannot think of just one blessing that they brought to suffering humanity -- -- not one. In fact, I don't even know of an all atheist bank. Most people prefer to bank with banks that believe in moral absolutes.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas,

Ted Wampler
