The War on Christmas
We Americans love to declare war. Besides the military wars, we have had the War on Poverty, the War on Drugs, the War on Women and now the War on Christmas. According to Bill O'Reilly, "it's all part of the secular progressive agenda to get Christianity and spirituality and Judaism out of the public square". He cites the fact that many American stores are greeting their customers with "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas". He then adds, "if you look at
what happened in Western Europe and Canada, if you can get religion out, then you can pass secular progressive programs, like legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage, because the objection to those things is religious-based, usually."
Obviously, Mr. O'Reilly thinks the only religion that matters is Christianity and all "real" Americans are Christians. The rest are just a bunch of gay drug addicts who want to kill Grandma. For the record, there are several religious holidays that happen in the last part of December:
December 9-16 Chanuka (Hanukkah)-Jewish
December 21 Solstice (Yule and Litha)-Wicca
December 26 Zarathosht Diso-Zoroastrian
So I guess all you Jews, Wiccans and Zoroastrians should keep your mouth shut and let the REAL American Christians have THEIR holiday. By the way, does that also include Jehovah's Witnesses who do not celebrate Christmas because they claim it is merely a perversion of a Pagan holiday?
I guess they are not REAL Americans either.
