Getting in the mood for Christmas… Old, recycled posts of the holiday season… part 8…

Some thoughts on the ‘war on Christmas’…

There is no war on Christmas…

It is a made-up thing…

Stop acting like you are being persecuted because we want to include everybody. Nobody is really even telling you to say ‘happy holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas’. But let me ask you this:

When we the last time you said:

“Happy Pesach” to a Jewish person?

“Joyous Lailat al Miraj” to a person of the Islamic faith?

“Have a great Ramayana” to a Hindu?

“Merry Baisakhi” to a Sikh?

“Fabulous Visakha Puja” to a Buddhist?

“Awesome Beltane and Samhain” to a Wiccan or a pagan?

We just want you to stop acting as if Christianity is the only religion that matters in America. This is a little like when you keep complaining that you can’t put giant crosses on top of mountains on public land. Nobody cares. We just want you to stick an equally big symbol for all the other faiths represented in this great country beside the cross.

And just so you know, if Jesus was alive today, I doubt he would be happy with people trampling other human beings to get the best Christmas deals…
