There’s been a lot of talk lately, mostly in the conservative media, about the “War on Christmas. Evidently, there is some sort of conspiracy among atheists and, god-forbid, Jews to take Jesus out of Christmas. According to FOX News, we are trying to ruin it for them.
Now, having been out in among the masses as of late, I’ve noticed something. People are stressed out, angry, distracted and all around me are people talking on their cell phones about where to get such-and-such a gift, or how they can’t find anything for so-and so, all the while ignoring their own children who have their hand or are sitting in their cart. These people are thinking about a lot of things—Jesus in not one of them. I could be wrong, but I’m fairly certain that putting nativity scenes up all over the city would not change this. I believe if there was a Jesus he would be the one firing the first shot in this so-called war. I’m not sure if there very many people all that concerned about taking “Jesus” out of Christmas, but I believe if Jesus existed he would take himself out.
This can be a wonderful time year. There are lights and parties and togetherness, lets just be human together. Happy Holidays!
