FL Mayor Tells PC Police to Shove It

Trigger Warning:
Offended by Christmas? Stay away from Katy, FL.
Quick what's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word "Christmas?"  If it's "Happy Holidays" or "ban Christmas trees and Santa" you might want to stay away from Katy, FL:
The City of Katy is casting aside political correctness get into the traditional Christmas spirit. Katy's Mayor Fabol Hughes tells FOX 26, Christmas has meaning for Christians, and it's time to celebrate it.

"I don't buy Christmas cards to say Happy Holidays," Hughes said, being interviewed at Snappy's Cafe & Grill Monday. "That just rubs me the wrong way."

Katy has already started decorating with bows and wreaths, but the decorations are not finished. Hughes says he's put the word out to his department heads to look for ways to decorate with the words "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Hanukah."

"Were going to make a statement and say Merry Christmas," Hughes said. "Wherever we can project that in the city, were going to do that."
Yes, Regina, there is a Santa Claus, and he's going to be setting up shop in Katy this year.  Mayor Hughes has pretty much had it with all the politically correct crap going on in the world today.  There's apparently strong support for his decision as well.  According to Mayor Hughes all of his city councilmen are behind the Christmas push as well.

Oh, but it gets better, folks.  Not only will the city of Katy be shouting "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Hanukah," they will also be proudly displaying "In God We Trust" across all of their emergency vehicles.  They were originally going to pay for it out of the city budget, but apparently a lot of decals have actually been donated by the community.

Good for Katy, and good for Mayor Hughes.  Christmas is a holiday celebrated by the majority of Americans, with Hanukah probably being second.  There's nothing wrong with wishing someone a "Merry Christmas" or a "Happy Hanukah" even if they don't celebrate those holidays.  These two holidays represent a shared set of values-love, family, friendship, stuffing your face with copious amounts of food.  When you wish someone a "Merry Christmas" or a "Happy Hanukah" you're extending those values to that person.  It shouldn't offend someone to be included in that time of celebration.

Too often, though, cities cave in to the politically correct crowd.  How many times every Christmas season do we read about nativity scenes, Christmas trees, menorahs, and other decorations being taken down because they "offend" someone?  It's great to finally see a city pushing back against all the politically correct nonsense.

Wait, what if the city of Katy offends someone with its decorations?  Well, Mayor Hughes has a little something to say about that:
"I'll pray for them," Hughes says. "I really don't care what their opinion is."
Bam.
