Merry Christmas from FFC
This Christmas, it is important to remember why we celebrate this wonderful time of year: the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
“And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11
For the past few years, our religious freedom has come under attack, especially at this time of year. It seems that anything having to do with Christmas or the birth of our Lord is not tolerant for today.
FFC founder and Chairman Ralph Reed recently wrote an article in the Washington Times discussing Christmas in America and our religious liberty.
“In every case, otherwise benign Christmas traditions have been banned because of the pleadings of a few who claimed they were offended, as if the Constitution guarantees that no citizen will ever experience offense. In truth, by enshrining freedom of speech (including speech of a religious context) in the First Amendment, the founders guaranteed we would be offended regularly by the publicly expressed views of others. It’s called liberty.”

We urge you do stand strong during this time of year. Say “Merry Christmas”, sing your favorite Christmas songs loud and clear, and never be afraid to celebrate the real reason for the season, Jesus Christ.
