I heard it myself, this morning. Barack Obama said, “Merry Christmas.” That must mean that it is politically correct and our government will now allow the word Christmas back in the public schools and Christmas trees on public property.
Is there a war on Christmas? I am not sure. Here is a portion of what was written in Ventura County Star:
Lincoln Chafee…. recently told me on national television the reason he will not use the word “Christmas” in describing the state Christmas tree. The idea is that the word might offend non-Christians. The governor calls the state-purchased symbol a “holiday tree.”…
…I mean, here’s how bad it is in this country. A pastor in Arkansas canceled a play called “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown” because some nutty atheist objected to public school kids seeing it on church grounds. So Charlie, Snoopy and Linus were thrown under the bus by a Christian cleric. Good grief!…
…So, when President Grant honored Jesus by signing into law the national holiday of Christmas in 1870, the nation certified that positive message of generosity and peace was a worthy of a day off. Pretty much everybody was on board.
Here is what those precious children missed:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!
