Christian Group Rants About Capitol Xmas Ornaments

The Christian Defense Coalition’s Patrick Mahoney:

The ‘People’s House,’ as the US Capitol Building is so rightly called, must be a place where all Americans should be afforded the right to come and peacefully celebrate and express their First Amendment Rights.

That is why it was so troubling when I read the official guidelines for ornaments on the 2021 U.S. Capitol Christmas included these words; ‘Decorations cannot include religious symbols.’

Since the definition of Christmas is, ‘the annual festival celebrating Christ’s birth,’ it would be deeply concerning if ornaments celebrating His birth were prohibited and censored from being on the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree by the order of a government agency.

Mahoney last appeared on JMG in April 2021 when he lost a court battle to stage a prayer vigil on the steps of the Capitol.

PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: Mahoney in the past has paraded a “living nativity scene” (including a camel and a donkey) before the Supreme Court. He’s also affiliated with Christian nationalist Roy Moore. In 2012, he led protests outside the Democratic Convention in Charlotte. In 2009, he joined a raft of hate group leaders in protesting the just-passed Hate Crimes Act outside DOJ headquarters.
