Cultural War on Christmas Continues


He is mentioned in some of the most sacred US documents like the Declaration Of Independence. His churches played an integral part in freeing the US Colonies from British rule.  He is referred to on the currency of our nation. He is often referred to in many important Statesmanship Speeches such as the Gettysburg Address. His lawgiver Moses is portrayed in character alongside other famous historical figures on the US Supreme Court. The Congress of the US has even retained Christian Chaplains since 1789 to open Congressional sessions as well as offer guidance to members. December 25th has been set aside by federal law as a legal holiday celebrating the birth of his Son. Still there rages a Cultural War on God, Christians and Christmas  by progressive secularists, Christian apologists and a minority with malice towards religion in any form. Every year another cultural attack by anti-religion combatants strikes another contemptuous blow seeking forced government discrimination against faithful followers of religions.  As reported by media sources, a recent event comes from the halls of Congress, where representatives responsible for overseeing Congressional mailings to constituents  have ruled the words “Merry Christmas” or “Happy New Year” may not be included as part of any official Congressional mailings.  I suppose next they will ban the use of the word goodbye, since  as I have mentioned before,  it is merely a contraction of the words “God be with Ye“ !!

  1. All this nonsense is about not wanting to offend those who don’t celebrate Christmas, or don’t believe. We think we that do believe should stand up and start shouting that we are offended by those who are offended and want to take Christmas away.

  2. Look! Locusts!

  3. Cruiser you hit the nail on the head. In many ways it has become the ambition of the anti-religion movement to combine the judicial branches with the other two governmental branches to force believers back into the shadows like in the Roman days. The whiners hide behind how they are being offended while in reality it is the Christian movement that is being discriminated against by progressive hatemongers. Christians are not forcing them to celebrate Christmas – they just expect respect for their beliefs. That is something that seems to be beyond the ability of the hate on religion crowd.

  4. Ghost I can deal with the locusts – just keep the damn snakes at a distance! Where I spent my early youth rattlesnakes, copperheads and water moccasins were in plenty. I have no desire to live among them again.
