And joining us right now we have Todd stars who is the host of Fox News and commentary it's getting a lot of attention.
And he joins us now with Todd Haley just back Shani and I taught through wars have been started in South Carolina won back in the 1860s.
And now we have this season's world Christmas in South Carolina Charleston, South Carolina actually all right and -- were also around a hospital a state run hospital disappointment they're making very profusely.
Which Van -- reverse the ban.
Explain -- hate non Santa and the baby Jesus so what -- say the baby Jesus for for last don't get to Santa Claus here because on Monday.
They decided to -- Santa Claus from this cancer treatment center Hollings cancer center.
Apparently somebody had complained -- Santa Claus every time every around Christmas time -- we're -- visit the cancer patients for a little happiness in each year.
But somebody complained that they they said they weren't a Christian.
They -- excluded.
From these celebrations and therefore they politics and it should be fired and so they fired Santa Claus.
-- the local newspaper did a story on it's Tuesday.
And let's just say that's it's a really jingle a lot of people's Bell's -- -- on Wednesday.
The hospital were reversed his decision and decided to rehire -- applause.
But here's the catch in addition the Santa Claus and -- a in a move to be more.
The diverse and to be more tolerant they're going to research and to see if there are any secular.
Characters represented in Jewish holidays Muslim holidays and Kwanzaa.
And it if they combine those characters are going to invite those people to walk alongside Santa Claus.
As they spread good cheer to the cancer ward.
Because the argument is that all although Santa Claus is associated with Christmas he's a secular figure.
And right and that's why they feel after reviewing the issue that it it is okay to have Santa.
But -- still critics who say it will come on I mean Santa is Christmas Christmas is a Christian holiday Jews don't celebrate it they know who Santa is there -- left out and there -- state run institution and the woman says you know we are therefore bound by separation of state.
A look at we've heard this story time and time again in the basic scenario was this to respect other people's religions you disrespect the Christian religion it happens all the time.
But but I think what's interesting here is that is -- the hospitals rationale.
So I had talked to the PR person they're very open and forthcoming and and I said so let me get this straight so -- bay and Santa Claus because you didn't -- -- offend people -- people were being offended.
Feasible that tried.
As of the so why -- you bring in Santa -- back then.
And so she told me she goes.
You're taking me down a road but I don't want to go down -- won't buckle up baby it's a going to be Iraqi ride -- -- out of the question is people people have a lot of questions.
I want to talk about baby Jesus.
Because they're also banning all holiday.
And ornaments that might be -- -- -- is in in nature so.
No nativity scene.
No wise man you can have a snowflake which Jesus made but you can't have the baby Jesus so so that's a bit of a controversy of -- Now we're talking about.
I -- and does the common areas -- -- assuming people's rooms if if it's around the holidays and you want to put up something around now this is this is an outpatient -- -- they don't Australia patients' -- so -- checked -- -- so but but -- would we're talking more about stats.
So you know the nurses want to have a -- Christmas tree.
They can't do that they do have -- they do have -- what they call an Angel tree one of those trees where you can go and pick off the name of a child who I needy child.
But then they don't have anything that would be constituted as a as as a Christmas tree which in fact is that other secular symbol of -- the Christmas season and not everybody believes in angels.
Know so that's.
You know it's -- -- to set up and look I've -- -- today right now in my office I had two more war on Christmas stories that we're working on is just really unbelievable.
