Majority of PA Congressmen Vote to Recognize the Importance of Christmas and the Christian Faith, But . . .


(Harrisburg) – Last evening the U.S. House passed House Resolution 847 by a vote of 372 to 9.  This resolution recognizes the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.   But the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide traditional values group, is questioning the vote of Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz.


“We are very pleased that seventeen of our nineteen Congressmen voted to recognize the importance of Christmas and the Christian Faith.  Congressman John Murtha was one of forty who did not vote and unfortunately Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz decided to simply vote ‘present’ rather than take a stand on such a controversial issue as Christmas,” noted Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.


On October 2nd all nineteen of PA’s U.S. Congressmen voted in favor of a resolution supporting the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.  Apparently on that day Congresswoman Schwartz did not hesitate to vote for a resolution supporting the religion of the nineteen hijackers of 9/11 who brought down the World Trade Center, flew their airliner/missile into the Pentagon, and caused the death of the crew and passengers of Flight 93 as it crashed into a field outside Shanksville, PA. 


“I believe there are more Christians in her district than Muslims and they deserve an explanation for her vote last night,” Gramley further stated.
