Christmas, oops there I said it, is under attack, not only here in the United States, but in the United Kingdom as well. God forbid, Christmas, oops I mean the December holiday, is a cause for celebration and a reflection on Christ’s birth.
I don’t know about you, but I am deeply offended that there are people and organizations in this world that are offended by Christmas. I am even more offended that organizations like ACLU tell us we cannot put up decorations or manger scenes because it might offend non-Christian peoples.
I came across a little ditty on the internet called Bare Naked Islam. Its feature story was about the British Red Cross banning Christmas from its 430 fundraising shops, so as not to offend Muslims.
A worker at one of the shops said, “It seems we can’t have anything that means Christmas. We’re allowed to have some tinsel but that’s it. When we send cards they have to say season’s greetings or best wishes.” She added, “We have been instructed that we can’t say anything about Christmas and we certainly can’t have a Christmas tree.”
The same publication shared this poster, that was widely circulated in the UK. It said, “On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me an STD; on the second day, debt; on the third day rape; the fourth, teenage pregnancies followed by abortion; and then blasphemy, exploitation, promiscuity, night clubs, crime, pedophilia, paganism, alcohol and drugs.”
Then the poster proclaimed, “In Islam we are protected from all of these evils. We have marriage, family, honor, dignity, security, rights for man, woman and child.” Then it lists a phone number for more information.
The title of the poster is THE EVILS OF CHRISTMAS.
Talk about blasphemy! So The Red Cross and other organizations prohibit Christmas decorations, or even the mention of Christmas, yet terrorist Muslims (oops, I guess I’m profiling) can kill people of all races and religions all over the world.
Do we ban any references to Ramadan or other Muslim holidays, I don’t think so. Do we tell Jews they can’t put up decorations for Hannukah. I don’t think so. Why, then should Christians be disallowed from showing their faith? I’m so tired of political correctness. I am so tired of litigation-happy organizations telling us what we can and cannot do.
I intend to celebrate Christmas with all the pomp and circumstance available to me. I want you all to join me. Put up your manger scene; send out your Christmas cards and never use the political correct phrase, “season’s greetings” ever again. I’m proud to be a Christian and by golly, no one’s gonna tell me I can’t show it.
