Despite the fact that close to 90 percent of all Americans are Christians -- and that along with Easter, Christmas is one of the two most sacred days in the Christian calendar -- we have allowed a tiny minority among us to turn Christ’s birthday celebration into a secular holiday devoid of any religious significance whatsoever.
...The secular progressives who shrivel at the sound of a “Merry Christmas” greeting have long succeeded in intimidating the world of commerce and government. It’s about time for the 90 percent of Americans who call themselves Christians to do a little intimidation of their own.
What says Christmas more than "Even though we're in tough economic times, we'll ruin your business and have you sack that lowly clerk for not assuming that we're holier than thou Christians! Ahem, ah, we meant JUDEO-Christians!" Does that stand for people who celebrate Kwanza?
We should never again vote for a candidate who does not recognize the right of Christians to have their sacred religious observances recognized by all levels of government, and who will not vigorously oppose all attempts to take Christ out of Christmas and Christmas out of the calendar.In other words, "we have political clout - Jerry Falwell said so."
Am I missing the point? Isn't Christmas supposed to be a "season of giving" in the TRUE sense? That would include all of those people who don't believe in the babe-in-a-manger story, but do believe in Peace On Earth, Good Will Toward Men. The last phrase, I assume, means not offending anyone. Yes, that means being PC (double gasp!) which I mean to stand for Polite and Compassionate.
Beware of Michael Reagan* as you would Michael Savage (the one who hates autistic kids). Of course, you could send him a message by telling people not to listen to his radio show. Oh, but that wouldn't be PC.
Just a thought.
