Small Minds

--------------------------------------------------R A N T --------------------------------------------------------

It's a little early to start worrying about a non-existent war on Christmas, isn't it? Already I'm seeing those posts on Facebook that say " It's Merry Christmas not Happy Holidays. If you don't agree, leave the USA."

Happy Holidays means "Happy Holy Days" and if Christmas is a holy day to Christians, then I don't see the problem. I haven't heard of anyone being shot or arrested for saying Merry Christmas so of course you are free to say it. Nobody's told you that you can't buy a Christmas tree, either.

This is much ado about nothing, a lot of bluster and air over something that exists only in the minds of small-thinking people who want to think they are persecuted but have no clue what persecution truly is. When Christians in the US are being shot or beaten by the dozens for being baptized, get back to me. There are more important things to worry about than some store clerk saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."

If your skin is that thin, stay home in the dark with the TV and the lights off, and your hands on that Bible that you probably never read.

  1. Gosh - reading the Bible. What a radical idea! You might contaminate your mind with ideas like; not killing other people; forgiving other people; sharing what you have with other people; not loving money and so on. Terrible! The economy would crash and the nation would lose its mojo! It would be the end of patriotism as we know it! Nooooo!

  2. Agreed. People have become so overly sensitive about EVERYTHING! They annoy me.

  3. I get tired of this same old argument every year. It's right up there with ignorant people who insist that using Xmas "takes Christ out of Christmas." *Rolls eyes*
