A Merry Christmas to All!

This article is so good, I couldn’t wait to share it with you.  The War Against Christmas Rages On from The Daily News out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada puts it so aptly.  Please take a moment to read it.

Here’s an excerpt to get you going:

Christmas is the most important holiday celebration of the year in our culture, and it essentially belongs to Christianity, although it is properly something to be shared with others in a spirit of kindness and generosity.  The real problem is the astonishing degree of cultural leverage a self-appointed elite of left/liberal secularist ideologues now exert on society.  Through pseudo-intellectual coercion, they browbeat others into capitulating to their political-correctness agenda.

This will be my last post for 2007.  Hopefully, society will return to sanity in 2008 and  Where’s Christmas? will cease to exist. 

Until then, have a very Merry Christmas!

In the meantime, resist the opposition with loving wishes for a “Merry Christmas”.  Perhaps we can affect them in such a way that the small hearts of the grinches will grow.

    The religious importance of Christmas pales in comparison to the importance of Easter, yet because of the commercialization of the Christmas holiday, it has become more important to Christians the nation over. This blog is ridiculous. Our country was found by deist (read – “not fundamentalist Christian”) men after a bunch of Brits and friends came here to escape religious persecution. They were the minority, fleeing majority oppression. I’m saddened to see that you rally to the cause of oppressing or simply disregarding the faiths or sensibilities of non-Christians in America. There is no War on Christmas. That is idiocy. Your expose-style articles are so useless and ineffectual, I’m not even sure where to start. Celebrate your holiday (it’s mine too!) and let others celebrate theirs – what others do or say or label or call things is completely irrelevant to your faith. If it IS relevant to your faith, then you have absolutely no idea what Christianity, or religion in general is even for. I’m sorry for you.

    SEASONS GREETINGS!

    Dear dumbfounded,

    Somehow I sincerely doubt your concern about Easter being overshadowed by Christmas. I’m sorry, but anyone who believes we were founded by deists simply cannot be taken seriously. Perhaps you can continue your little history lesson and tell me the names of three of our founding fathers who were deists – and while you’re at it, please tell me what you think a deist is, and why it would even matter if it was true that we were founded by deists.

    Secondly, I have no interest in preventing anyone from practicing their faith (assuming it doesn’t include clitoridectomies, honor killings, strapping explosives to yourself, flying planes without a license, etc.) or celebrating their holidays. Nothing in my blog could have given you that impression. However, do the holidays that others celebrate dictate that they appropriate and rename elements of the Christian holidays (holiday trees, holiday egg hunts, etc.)? And when they do, who is the fascist: the one pointing it out, or the abductor? Isn’t this simply another example of the minority oppressing the majority – the tail wagging the dog?

    Merry Christmas,

    Todd
