Posted on 12/18/2010 6:52:19 AM PST by VRWCTexan
The Federal Reserve has reversed its decision that originally forced a small Oklahoma bank to remove from its premises and website Bible verses, crosses, and Christmas buttons.
The reversal occurred after national outcry and a letter from two Oklahoma lawmakers who charged that the decision may be unconstitutional.

Just my tagline
It should have tipped them off when the FED examiner brushed up against a cross and got severe burns, while giving off a loud “Hissss!” of pain.
The Devil is hard at work destroying our country.
That he is...
And the LORD said to Satan, From where come you? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. Job 1:7
Felíz Fitzmass, Federales locos!
About a half mile from my house (In OKC) there is a Legacy Bank with two displays in the front. One is the typical Santa and candy canes stuff. The other is a Nativity scene. Let’s see if the Feds do anything about that.
When the majority stand up to the Leftist attempts at minority rule, the Leftists tend to back down.
And of what concern is it to the Federal Reserve Bank that other banks are celebrating Christmas the way they choose? This isn't mere politics or some First Amendment rights issue, it's the open persecution of Christians by atheists and other religions who reject Jesus Christ.
God how I desire a pushback by a united Christianity against these liars and biggots who are currently in power. They know the time is ripe for open warfare on Jesus Christ because Christianity is clearly weakened by its many divisions, (aka "denominations") and the stench of liberalism that has entered the Church. The stench of liberalism is the downfall of America, it blinds the eye to evil. Just as an example, how many people see the dark, encroaching evil of Islam that is infiltrating our culture with designs of destroying all the God given freedom that was once ours? How many? Very few, it appears, if we would elect as our own leader a man whose father and brothers hail from this dark cult, Barak Hussein Obama.
There will come a day when all the Christ-deniers will come face-to-face with an angry Living God. How I long for that day.
I don’t think the Lord we’ll be angry. God will simply grant their wish to spend eternity apart from Him.
I love the the Feds always push the envelope until they get pushed back. Then they have to back off. It never ends.
We haven’t seen the end of this. They will be back in some other public arena. They were successful in getting displays of faith out of schools and city halls. Now they are trying in banks. Their goal is to confine religious practice to the insides of churches, where then, like the Chinese, they can bulldoze them to the ground.
Not all schools are religion-free zones. A lady at work told me that her grandchildren are practicing for a Christmas pageant at their public school, learning songs like "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "Go Tell it on the Mountain." She was a bit puzzled about the latter, since she had never considered it a "Christmas" song.
Ron Paul can't get in there fast enough. I hope he vivisects the Fed, and then burns the remains.
The Fed claimed it fell under a non-discrimiation banking rule. Christmas decor, mention of God, or a Bible verse, they reasons, would make Jews or atheists feel unwelcome at the bank.
Yeah, and hanging a sign that says "Armed Security" makes hoplophobes and bank robbers feel unwelcome.
This insane fixation on controlling everyone's actions so that hypothetical emotions of third parties don't flare up has got to end.
It's a superstition that has gotten way out of hand.
