Tulsa World Reports: Inhofe says he won’t be part of annual Tulsa parade until Christ is

“I am hopeful that the good people of Tulsa and the city’s leadership will demand a correction to this shameful attempt to take Christ, the true reason for our celebration, out of the parade’s title. Until the parade is again named the Christmas Parade of Lights, I will not participate.”

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe announced Tuesday that he will not participate in Tulsa’s Parade of Lights until organizers put “”Christ” back in the event’s title.

“Last year, the forces of political correctness removed the word ‘Christmas’ and replaced it with ‘Holiday’ instead,” the Oklahoma Republican said.

“I am deeply saddened and disappointed by this change.”

Inhofe, who served as Tulsa’s mayor from 1978 to 1984, said he had participated in the parade annually, riding horseback as his children and grandchildren watched.

“I did not do so last year, because I’m not going to ride in a Christmas parade that doesn’t recognize Christmas,” he said.

“I am hopeful that the good people of Tulsa and the city’s leadership will demand a correction to this shameful attempt to take Christ, the true reason for our celebration, out of the parade’s title. Until the parade is again named the Christmas Parade of Lights, I will not participate.”

Scheduled this year on Dec. 11, the downtown parade dates back more http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/article.aspx?subjectid=16&articleid=20101201_16_A13_CUTLIN814019 70 years.

Happy Birthday Jesus!



Special thanks to Anne Geddes for her wonderful video and photos!

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given. And the government shall be upon His shoulder. And His name shall be called: Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6

Let us never forget that Jesus is the Reason for the Season and indeed for Life as we know it! He made us and redeemed us with His own perfect sacrifice. We have much to thank Him for both now and throughout the year and yes even eternally.

Blessings to you and your household,
Sandie
