Friends--whom I email and IM--really HATE when CHRISTmas comes around because I always type CHRISTmas with CHRIST in all caps.
This is something silly I picked up a while back (High School) when I would see the phrase "X-Mas" everywhere (Kitty has a post on this here). At first I thought it was just an abbreviation, but then I looked at it and asked, "Why would anyone put an X in place of Christ? Why not just use C-Mas?" It is a real attempt to take Christ out of CHRISTmas.
Well, just in time for the CHRISTmas season, the American Communist Liberal Union is on the hunt for the treasure at the end of the Judicial Rainbow. First, we have the Ten Commandments (the world's first CONSTITUTION!, but that's another post) case in front of the Supreme Court (our theocratic dictator favors the Ten Commandments). Next, we have the Pledge of Allegiance in front of the Supreme Court. Then we have the Declaration of Independence BANNED in Cupertino, CA, schools as supplementary materials. And now, in the biggest slap in the face, Target and Macy's are banning CHRISTmas from their stores (while they roll in all the cash).
I ask all my readers to sit back and enjoy CHRISTmas as the celebration of Jesus the Christ's birth (even though we don't know when he was born). If you don't believe that Jesus is/was/will forever be: God and perfect man who bore the burden of sin so that whoever accepts the free gift of salvation by simply believing this will be saved, then fine. But that's what CHRISTmas is about.
If you don't like it, then don't celebrate, but celebrate diversity! Celebrate that people are celebrating something they love and are passionate about; celebrate that people find happiness in things other than materialism (people who want to take Christ out of CHRISTmas but still have X-Mas for all those sales are the true materialists).
This demonstrates what liberals didn't get about "red state" voters. They say we are stupid because we vote against our "economic interests." There are people in this world whose interest are not only about the almighty dollar and what free handout the government can give them. They live their lives devoted to Someone greater than themselves and for one day out of the year, they want to celebrate the Person that gives them their happiness and who saved them.
Labor Day is about how fat-cat, union gangsters saved the "worker" from "oppression" (a holiday for Communists!). Is that day offensive? Not really. So why is CHRISTmas so bad? I think for the same reason the Declaration of Independence sucked for King George and liberated us from the State (aka the British Empire). Christianity liberates people from the bonds of earth, which consequently liberates them from the State.
Since liberals worship the State as God, they are trying to snuff out competition pure and simple.
