what I like to call the war on Christmas. These stories are plentiful
because there never seems to be a dearth of people who are seeking two
things: Power and attention. Couple that with some politically correct
Bolshoi and you are in for a Christmas punchbowl filled with unpleasant
foreign objects. Here are two of our latest findings ..
Atheists cry foul over A Charlie Brown Christmas
Charlie Browns Christmas is on the outs at an elementary school in
Little Rock, Ark. at least among atheists who are calling foul over a
planned student trip to see a stage production of the beloved Peanuts
Jesus Christ 'should be downplayed in school'
Schools (in the UK) should downgrade Christianity in assemblies for a
more inclusive multi-faith approach, say religious education advisors.
Very little of this is about genuine and honest feelings about ones
children being exposed to Christmas and Christianity. Its about power.
We live in a society a world dominated by celebrity worship. You can
become a celebrity in many different ways. You can display actual talent
in a field, or you can wield power in some spectacular way. If you lack
special talents, wielding power is going to be your road to the celebrity
you so covet. Perhaps the best path to that is to use the courts to
pursue some false grievance, and the easiest path through the courts for
this purpose is the religion path. Just start spouting separation of
church and state, a phrase, by the way, which does NOT appear in our
Constitution, and hire a lawyer. BAM! Instant celebrity!
