Kentucky House Bill Would Make It Illegal to Fire an Employee for Saying "Merry Christmas"

If you've read this blog enough, then you know that I really hate it when people whine about the fictional "War of Christmas." People get all worked up if/when they hear somebody say "Happy Holidays" or "Happy Hanukkah" or even "Have a nice day" anytime between Halloween and Christmas Day. They act like they are being victimized by somebody else's chosen greeting. And then they act like it is the biggest sign of rebellion to actually say "Merry Christmas" when nobody really cares.

I learned yesterday of HB 565 (filed within the Kentucky House by Representative Will Coursey (D) of Symsonia, KY), which was created to address to nonexistent problem:
Christmas Counterattack: Rep. Will Coursey, D-Symsonia, filed HB 565 which would give any business owner immunity from civil liability for exhibiting a Christmas display and the bill also makes it unlawful for an employer to fire an employee for saying “Merry Christmas.”
Sadly, this House bill was filed by a Democrat.
