War on Christmas

This is exactly the way Jesus planned it – making sure that major retailers don’t say anything blasphemous like “Happy Holidays”.  (Gasp… it’s so offensive I can barely type it).

Christians Winning ‘War on Christmas’

The American Family Association, a Christian group, has taken the leading role in alerting the media to the grave danger posed by retailers who avoid using the word “Christmas” in marketing materials in favor of the more neutral “holidays.”

Anyone whose faith is shaken by someone saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” is someone who’s faith is tenuous at best.  It’s these frail whining brats that drive people away more than win them over.  It’s not appealing. I don’t want to be associated with idiots like that, few people do.

Jesus spoke to me and he said he doesn’t give one rat’s ass whether retailers say Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays.  He said he cares what actions you take during your day.  He said he is more concerned with feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and healing the sick.  Not petty bickering by spoiled Americans about how some retailer greets them.

The difference between someone who gets upset at “Happy Holidays” and someone who gets upset about a drawing of their prophet is….almost nothing.  Both are over-sensitive children whose tantrums contribute nothing.

    I do not care whether a sales associate tells me “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”, however, I believe that the store should also allow the inidivdual to make the choice of what to say. In the past i have heard/read where employees have been let go because they told a customer “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”.
    However, I do not agree with those that create their own terms. It is a Christmas tree. There is no such thing as a holiday tree, unless you keep it up all year long and change the decorations to match the next holiday, MLK day, President’s day, Independence, Memorial and Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans day, Thanksgiving day and Christmas day.
