Ah, Christmas. That wondrous time of year when billions of people exchange gifts, gather with loved ones, and enjoy delicious food to celebrate the gift of Jesus Christ to all men. Meanwhile, a man in a suit flies from city to city, from rooftop to rooftop, dropping packages of lawsuits down the chimneys of every city hall with a nativity scene out front. This seems to be the modern Christmas story doesn’t it, with our own modern version of ACLU-Grinches instead of Santa Claus? Every year as the season of giving draws near, the season of back-bending political correctness reaches new levels of insanity.
In this week’s column, Return sanity to Christmas (http://www NULL.worldnetdaily NULL.com/news/article NULL.asp?ARTICLE_ID=59368), Judge Moore gives a few examples of this seasonal lunacy and the goofy bureaucrats who, in their attempt to “not offend,” manage to offend the majority of people who hold Christmas and its true meaning very dear.
- There is the New Jersey school district who banned “Silent Night” for its reference to Jesus but allowed “Frosty the Snowman,” all in the interest of preserving “balance.”
- There’s the Wisconsin State Capitol that calls its Christmas tree a “Capitol Holiday Tree” (what holy-day might that be?), but then allowed a very anti-Christmas sign to be displayed on the grounds stating, among other things, “There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell.”
- This year’s Christmas Insanity Award goes to Ft. Collins, Colorado and its “Holiday Task Force,” but you’ll have to read the column for yourself to see what these Scrooges came up with.
Despite these and other creative and laughable attempts to hide the true reason for the season, Judge Moore reminds us that the God who gave us our religious liberty also lovingly gave us the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, the true meaning of every Christmas.
