Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a victory in Wisconsin that atheists are deploring:
By a vote of 64-30, the Wisconsin Assembly has voted to call the Christmas tree in the state Capitol rotunda a Christmas tree. The governor, Tony Evers, wanted it called a “holiday tree.” He failed to say what holiday—which means “holy day”—it represents. Now he knows.
The Assembly also voted to adopt a resolution recognizing Thanksgiving week as National Bible Week.
The Christian haters at Freedom From Religion Foundation were appalled by both decisions.
It was Evers’ predecessor, Scott Walker, who, in 2011, called the Christmas tree a Christmas tree; it previously had been known as the “holiday tree.” Evers wanted that name back, but now he has lost.
