According to the Federal Reserve examiners that visited Perkins, Oklahoma and deemed a Bible verse of the day, crosses on the teller’s counter and buttons that say “Merry Christmas, God With Us.” were inappropriate.
Excuse me, but the Federal Reserve has not the authority to do this. At least, if they truly understood the First Amendment. It says:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
And last I heard, Federal Reserve, there is NO LAW telling you that you can do what you did to that bank.
UPDATE: Apparently, they got the message and let the bank put back their Christmas ornamentation. Never underestimate the social power of the internet. Explains why some want to regulate it. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
