When Donald J. Trump promised to bring “Merry Christmas” back to the Christmas season in America, he drew loud and enthusiastic cheers from his supporters. Americans are sick and tired of watching Christ removed from every aspect of our lives,  while atheists who are in a very small minority in a majority Christian America, are fighting tooth and nail to keep Christ hidden from view. A CATHOLIC senior home in the state of Washington is a perfect example of how far some people are willing to go to remove Christ from our lives—even going as far as to remove Christ from a Catholic facility that houses the elderly.

Bre Payton of The Federalist reports – A senior living center in Chehalis, Washington has banned its residents from saying “Merry Christmas” or displaying any Christmas cards or decorations with any religious significance in common areas.

The trouble started when the building manager at Providence Place in Chehalis told a Christian resident she could not say “Merry Christmas” or hang Christmas cards with religious symbols on her doorframe because the center receives funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Attorneys at the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the resident, says HUD does not ban funding recipients from celebrating Christmas.

“Americans don’t lose their constitutionally protected freedom to say ‘Merry Christmas’ or otherwise express their faith just because they live in a facility that accepts government funds,” ADF Senior Counsel Matt Sharp said in a statement. “No HUD rule requires senior living centers that accept federal resources to deny their residents the ability to celebrate Christmas with religious songs and symbols.”

On December 3, Assistant Housing Director Katrina Newman sent a letter to residents informing them that Nativity Scenes, the Star of David, and a crucifix were banned from common areas.

“When decorating the common areas and exterior of your community, think festive, not religious,” the letter reads.“Greenery, colored lights, snowmen, and snowflakes all convey the festive atmosphere without alluding to a specific religion.”

From a 2007 HUD statement:

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development continues to strongly support and respect the display of all religious symbols on properties receiving HUD assistance. We discourage anyone from interfering in the free exercise of religion and prohibiting residents from celebrating the joys of the season.
