Holiday Sauce for the Goose...

excusemesenator in atheism made my holiday season brighter:

A group of Pagans in Albemarle County, Va., was recently given permission to advertise their multi-cultural holiday program to public school children – and they have the Rev. Jerry Falwell to thank for it.

Seems a church group tried to distribute messages about their Bible School at the public school. The administrators balked, but then Falwell's Liberty Counsel came in and scared them into accepting the fliers.

So now some UU pagans have distributed their own message offering "an educational program for children of all ages (and their adults), where we’ll explore the traditions of December and their origins, followed by a Pagan ritual to celebrate Yule." Awesome possum.

Naturally, the local populace was thrilled by this glorious opportunity to demonstrate that all religions are treated equally here in the US of A. Well, maybe some of them are thrilled, but there's plenty of bitching and belly-aching.
