Holiday Parties. Bah! Humbug!

Kohl's Get's it Right!

If it’s December in the good ol’ USA, it must be time for the annual attack against God and His Son.  News stories abound of communities being bullied by fringe groups who demand that no reference be made to Jesus or His birthday.  In a recent news story out of Tennessee, the ACLU  has written a letter to school districts in the Volunteer State threatening law suits if they hold Christmas parties.

I know this is a season of peace and joy, but frankly this makes my blood boil.  There is nothing in the US Constitution that prohibits the celebration of the birth of Our Savior.  If you and I don’t stand up and make our voices heard, this is just one more freedom that we’re going to lose.  This is a Christian country.  Our founding fathers were Christians.  Our entire society is based on a Christian moral code.

The enemies of our freedom see this as just one more weapon in their battle for our minds and hearts.  As you know if you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, or if you just notice the image in the top left column, one of my pet peeves is people who wish me “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” or some other PC nonsense.  My response is always “Merry Christmas.”  Companies who insist that their employees not say the “C word” don’t deserve our business and I’m happy to let them know that.

To put this into perspective, how would you respond if a Jewish person wished you a Happy Hanukkah?  Would you take offense?  Would you be angry?  Or would you smile and say “Happy Hanukkah to you, too!”?  I think I know the answer.  Likewise, would you be offended by a menorah on the court house lawn?  I didn’t think so.

If you cherish your Christian values, if you believe you have the right to practice your faith without interference from a small anti-Christian minority, then take a stand.  Let everyone you come in contact with know that you celebrate Jesus’ birthday, not the winter solstice, not some generic politically correct “winter holiday”, but CHRISTMAS.

Pray for the heathens who don’t know the truth about the season, gently correct them if you can, but don’t give in to them.

By the way, Christmas is a federal holiday.  It’s ok for the Post Office to be closed on December 25, it’s just a problem if they want to let you know why they’re closed.  Go figure.
