Yes, Christmas and Christianity are definitely under fire from rabid secularists in our culture. But there are many victories over these attack, too, and this CitizenLink report outlines some of them. Important, too, is the fact that sometimes all it takes for a victory is simply to educate good people who have been misled about our history, our Constitution, and what is right.
All law and lawmaking is "religious" in the sense that it derives its authority to act from something outside of -- above -- itself.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "New Deal" was an all-out assault on the U.S. Constitution and the American way of life. Though few everyday Americans saw it at the time (media coverage that reached average Americans was relatively minimal in those days, and people still had an instinctive trust in our government), most of what FDR rammed down America's collective throat during his four terms was blatantly unconstitutional.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
