Bah! Humbug!

I had to laugh this morning when I ran across the article about how Conservative Christian leader, Jerry Falwell, has organized the “Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign,” an effort led by the conservative legal organization Liberty Counsel. The group promises to file suit against anyone who spreads what it sees as misinformation about how Christmas can be celebrated in schools and public spaces. They intend to sue, boycott and generally harass anybody who does not go around with Merry Christmas bubbling on their lips.

Now if that’s not the Christmas Spirit;
I don’t know what is!

I say let them expend their energy boycotting Walmarts, this Christmas. It’s too bad though, with all the supposed Christian values they have to protect (“There’s no war on Christmas. There’s no Jihad against Christians.”), this group couldn’t get fully behind a boycott of Walmart because it treats its employees unfairly and uses sweatshop labor–but no…give them 8 years of a virtual Christian free-for-all” and they go rabid on Christmas. Let’s jam Christmas down everbodies throats. Why not? It’s not too much of a leap to realize the people behind this campaign, who feel Christianity is threatened, are doing the threatening.

Never mind that the Christmas holiday was stolen from Pagan ritual and this time of the year is celebrated in myraid ways, for all kinds of different reasons, be they Christian or specifically not.
