The Nevada community of Mesquite is embroiled in controversy after a local high school principal admitted that the words “Merry Christmas” could not be used on campus. The issue came to light only after a letter sent from the Alliance Defense Fund showcasing an agreement between the school and the ACLU to avoid litigation was broadcast on FoxNews.
Virgin Valley High School principal, Dave Wilson told the local newspaper: â€œWe cannot promote religion in any way, shape or form. It has to be â€˜happy holidays.â€™ â€
