Christians Gain Upper Hand in the War on Christmas

with 2 comments

Finally, us Christians seem to be winning the War on Christmas.   There were two news stories that caught my eye this week and both spelled overwhelming victories for the forces of good and decency.   First, was Senator Orin Hatch.   Hatch who is a Christian (or at least a Mormon) has recorded a video for his song Eight Days of Hanukkah and it looks like a winner.

For years now, Jews have been encroaching on our Christmas music for years.   From Irving Berlin with White Christmas to Barbara Streisand and Neil Diamond recording Christmas albums.  No wonder the holiday became so secularized.   Even Bob Dylan recorded a Christmas CD this year.   Let’s see how they like having their holiday music created by a Mormon.  Now please don’t write in accusing me of being anti-Semitic, nothing could be further from the truth.   Just as Christians were given Jesus to bring us all the gift of eternal life, Jews had their lamp oil last for 8 whole days.  That oil thing is pretty cool.

The other story I saw involved the fine folks at Boss Creations.Net who have invented the Christ-mas tree.  This particular Christmas tree is a combination between a traditional Christmas tree and a rugged wooden cross.   It isn’t only a great conversation piece, but also a reminder that no matter how festive your Christmas tree may be, it’s only a group of judgmental pharisees, some nails, and a hammer away from a crucifixion.  I always thought that in the rush to blame the Jews for crucifying Jesus, that the wood itself got off way too easy.  We’re so eager nowadays to embrace nature that we forget about some of the truly despicable things from the crucifixion through lynchings, that tress have been responsible for.  The War on Christmas is far from over, but for the first time in a long time, it looks like we’ve got the upper hand.   Christians 1, Trees 0.
