Sarah Palin alleges ‘there is definitely War on Christmas’ during speech at Liberty University

Sarah Palin claimed “there is definitely a War on Christmas” while promoting her new book at Liberty University’s (LU) final fall convocation this past Wednesday.

Roanoke reports that Palin also stated that “revisionists” want to secularize Christmas by creating a “winter solstice season.”

Palin added that her faith is “the most important thing to me” and that it “has certainly influenced all the decisions I have made.”

Palin was at LU promoting her new book “Good Tidings and Greater Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas” and was joined on stage by LU chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. and school spokesman Johnnie Moore.

Palin was popularly received by LU students, who were excused from being late to classes if they were waiting afterward to get an autographed copy of her book.
