A Veterans Affairs Hospital in Texas found the hassle over staying on the right side of government political correctness too much of a pain – so it decided to stop all correspondence that contains religious language at the front door.
That includes Christmas cards, as a group of elementary school children at Grace Academy in Propser, Texas found out – to their disappointment – this week.
Fifty-two students at the school crafted personalized Christmas cards for VA patients at the Dallas hospital. The cards were combination greeting and “thank you” notes, and each bore the unique mark of the student who created it.
But the hospital rejected the cards because they referred to Christmas by name.
From Dallas-Ft. Worth’s KDFW:
The cards were the idea of Susan Chapman, a math teacher at Grace Academy. She’s married to a veteran and volunteers with the American Legion and other veterans’ organizations.
