Ex con fraudster felon Jim Bakker claims 'Merry Christmas' was outlawed

Criminal televangelist cum soup bucket peddler Jim Bakker told his infomercial fans that the government had banned the phrase "Merry Christmas," but it's OK to say it again because Christian fought long and hard to reclaim the right.

From Yahoo:

"They outlawed 'Merry Christmas' a few years ago and you know it," he said on his show on Thursday. "You couldn't even say 'Merry Christmas' at Walmart and the Walmart greeters told me they weren't allowed to say it."

Bakker claimed "we all started writing" and "changed it."
