Christmas Week, 2007
Christmas Week, 2007 - Washington, DC

The staff of the Religious Freedom Coalition wishes you a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

In this issue you will find links to some of the Christmas ads produced by presidential candidates.

WHITE HOUSE HOLIDAY- This year's visit to the White House "Holiday" section on the Internet is very interesting. The President's remarks for Kwanzaa and Eid al-Adha can be found as well as photos of the lighting of the National Christmas tree. The White House Holiday site can be viewed here.

PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDERS' CHRISTMAS ADS- After the now famous (or infamous if you are a liberal) Christmas TV ad by Gov Mike Huckabee, several other contenders for the White House including Hillary Clinton released their versions as well. Below are some of the most interesting. Note that Hillary Clinton is the only one promising to hand out gifts. Although John McCain featured a cross in his TV ad, the media has not mentioned it ,while beating up on Mike Huckabee for having a bookcase behind him "shaped" as a cross
Mike Huckabee - What is really important
Barack Obama - Merry Christmas
Rudy Guiliani - Happy Holiday
Hillary Clinton - Presents
John McCain - My Christmas Story
John Edwards -Seasons

HOUSE ADJOURNED- The House is adjourned for Christmas ("the Holiday" to Democrats) and will reconvene on January 15, 2008

SENATE ADJOURNED- The Senate will reconvene on January 15, 2008

BETHLEHEM'S MUSLIM CHRISTMAS- Officially Bethlehem is still 23% Christian, but the actual figure is more like 12%. Christians have been driven out since the United States forced Israel to hand over the town to Palestinian Muslim control. Read the World Net Daily story on the current conditions in Bethlehem for Christmas.

This issue contains the latest information on hearings before the 9th Circuit Court on Michael Newdow's "under God" lawsuit. This issue also contains more information on House and Senate legislation and the Iraqi Christian situation. Click here to view the PDF of the new Chairman's Report.
