******mas Season...

Sorry. The first 6 letters got censored... or so it seems. Touchstone has a post titled, No Christmas this Year, and includes a portion of a letter to the editor written by one of its subscribers, John Hawthorne. "The question that begs to be asked is, "why is there this fear of Christmas?" American society and our media will broadcast almost anything from pornography to evil murders to stories of the sad and often depraved lives of our modern celebrities." Also listed are links to other articles, on the same subject, by: Grinchlist, John Leo, and Richard Lowry. Once again, we face the PC crowd and their show of intolerance towards a Christian celebration. But should we be surprised? Hardly. Demand justice? Hmmm... how about using their own reasoning to our benefit? Could we ask them to please be true to their convictions and, if they truly are inclusive, then allow our celebration to be displayed, mentioned, or portrayed as well? Possibility? I have my doubts... but it's worth a try. In the meantime, certainly wish your non-Christian friends a very Merry Christmas. Finally, check World Magazine's blog De-Christmasing a Culture.
