Catholic Church Sues DC Transit Authority For Rejecting Christmas Ad

Rebel Staff

There has been a war on Christmas raging in the United States over the past few years, as references to the Christian holiday are repeatedly censored in public. Now, the Catholic Church is fighting back after the Washington D.C. Transit Authority censored one of their ads:

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), which operates the District's METRO system, is being sued by the Catholic Church after turning down an advertisement.

The Archdiocese of Washington is suing over an illustrative ad depicting the phrase "Find the perfect gift" under what appears to be the Star of Bethlehem and a group of shepherds.

"Transit has had a long and checkered history of censoring certain messages," Prof. Jonathan Turley of George Washington University said.

He said that WMATA put out a statement saying that the ad is "prohibited... under current advertising guidelines," adding that the possibility of "differing opinions" added to the decision.

"There are differing opinions between 1% and 2% milk," Turley said.

He noted that conservative writer Milo Yiannopoulos also had an ad removed from a transit system for a similar reason.

"Someone [is] sitting there at transit like Caesar...," Turley said. 

Decisions like this are exactly why President Donald Trump was so successful when he brought up the war on Christmas during his presidential campaign. Though the media mocked Trump for claiming that Christians are under attack in the U.S., that's exactly how many Americans feel. The politically correct believe that we should be open minded towards all races and religions — except when it comes to Christians. 

If we are really going to live in a society that celebrates all religions and races, the left must stop censoring Christians. However, we doubt the hypocrites will ever realize this, so the war on Christmas will simply rage on...

Ezra should sue the Patterson Billboard Group. He had a contract and they, for no apparent reason cancelled the contract.
The center right has to start fighting back.

Good , i want to see their official explanation for why it is a bad ad when the church lawyers show other ads that fit the same criteria.

Free speech is not free, many paid for the privilege and you can find thier memorials in the war graves of Europe and in the veterans hospitals in Canada
