Democratic Councilwoman Charlene Storey of Rosell Park, New Jersey, is taking her ball and going home. An atheist, Storey was one of two members of council who objected to calling the town's annual Christmas Tree lighting "A Christmas Tree Lighting."
So she is resigning from city council.
That will show them.
In her resignation letter, she said:
Bully for her, I guess. Considering the name of the federal holiday is Christmas, I expect her to show up for work on December 25 and work straight time."I cannot in good conscience continue to be part of a council that is exclusionary or to work with a Mayor who is such."
I get it. Communists hate religion. Marx mocked it as an opiate. Storey is trying to make her atheism the official religion of America. But ours is a Christian nation, founded by Christians and Jewish people. A Christmas Tree is secular. Pouting and stomping one's feet over a tree is childish. Frankly, voters made a mistake electing her.
