    As well as a humungous HAPPY HOLIDAYS sign immediately into the commons. I also noticed a big Star of David on the landing of a stairwell and the word "Hanukuh" (spelling). Just thought I'd mention that some schools in the USA still recognize Christmas (ironic, because my school no longer allows military recruiters, adn teh GSA and Amnesty International are thriving :mad: ) BUT, we'll see how long they stay up...anyone wanna have a pool?

    Fellow USMB-ers...

    I just know that many of you were planning on sending these folks a Christmas Card, with a picture of the Baby Jesus and verses from the Bible and all

    or maybe, you were planning on sending a photo of the current Pope, to replace the one of Pope John Paul II that they still have hanging in the lobby, (next to the one of Billy Graham and the Virgin Mary)

    but you haven't yet, because I know that you lost the address... well.. here it is....

    ACLU
    125 Broad Street
    18th Floor
    New York, NY 10004


    P.S. and be sure to mention that God loves 'em!
     
    • Thank You! Thank You! x 1

    Great idea! :thup: :laugh:

    Better send paramedics along with the card, though, for the ACLU'ers will surely pass out from the horror of seeing religious words and symbols.

    On second thought, why on earth would I want to revive that bunch?

    Good call...I might just do that. Maybe include a page of text explaing how good of an impact God has had on my life and why we should all consider ourselves blessed.

    Oh... and maybe you can enclose a note asking them nicely to see what they can do to get prayer re-allowed in school or Roe vs. Wade overturned.... while you're at it...
