The hosts of Fox & Friends on Tuesday thanked Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) for what they said was a "bipartisan effort" to "save Christmas," while excluding all other holidays from all other religions.

"H.R. 448 is a bipartisan resolution to protect Christmas," Lamborn explained. "It says that we should, as a country, protect the symbols and traditions of Christmas and not put up with any attempts to ban the symbols and traditions of Christmas."

According to Fox News, Lamborn's bill would protect Nativity scenes and singing Christmas carols in public places. It would also ensure that people have the ability to say the word "Christmas."

"There is a vocal minority that is offended at the rest of us who want to celebrate Christmas," Lamborn opined. "Just because someone is offended doesn't mean that they can shut down the religious celebration or acknowledgement of every other American. Then that tramples on the rights of those Americans."

"I am encouraged and inspired by all faith traditions," the Colorado Republican added. "If someone says to me Happy Hanukkah or something like that, I apply that to my own religion. I'm not offended by that person's acknowledgement of their religion. And so, we live in a pluralistic society."

"We need to have more tolerance of the diversity and pluralism of our society."

Fox News host Kelly Wright concluded by thanking the congressmen for introducing the bill.

While Lamborn called to acknowledge the "diversity and pluralism of our society" during the interview, he failed to do so in House Resolution 448, which makes no effort to protect any holiday except Christmas.
