Put "Christ" Back in Christmas

Am I the only one who understands the foolishness and absurdity of being so-called "politically correct" (man, I hate that term, it is for zombies to repeat), when it comes to Christmas? It is Christmas, by the way. There is a reason for the holiday dating back 2000 years. In our misguided attempts not to offend anyone who has a different belief or view, we are trampling our own rights.

The seed for this trend was planted over 20 years ago by the American Civil Liberties Union in the United States, and has slowly crossed the border into Canada. In the U.S., years of lawsuits and threats of lawsuits have made governments and public leaders wary of making any reference to "Christ" at Christmas-time (or should I say "Happy Holiday-time"? Absolutely absurd!!) so as not to offend any other belief and face litigation. The ACLU argued Nativity scenes and such violated the First Amendment ban on government-endorsed religion, and should not be erected or celebrated on public property (Who are these people?).

Therefore, it is time to call a spade a spade, and celebrate "Christmas". The U.S. and Canadian way of life were founded based on Christian principles, and are reflected in our governmental system, in the way of freedom, respect, and tolerance for people of all nations and beliefs. If someone on the street said to me "Happy Hanukkah", I would reply in kind out of respect for their belief. I certainly wouldn't be offended. Tolerance, remember, tolerance.

In closing, I think that these "invertebrates" in public office should take a stand and call the holiday what it is. Christmas. Oh, and by the way, that is a Christmas tree in your house, not a "Generic Holiday Tree".

After a long and difficult search, the case of the missing spiked Egg Nog was finally solved.... Posted by Hello
