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.

Science’s War on Christmas

leave a comment »

This week Australian astronomers claimed that the Christmas star appeared on June 17th not on December 25th.  I find this really convenient since in Australia June is in winter and December is in summer.  Now,  I suppose to some people the fact that Jesus was the son of God who died for all our sins is the important thing, but what makes Christmas holy for me are the many things about the holiday I take on faith about the holiday.

1. Christmas was on December 25th.

2. Even though it was winter time, shephards still were out in the fields with their sheep.

3. 2 out of the three wise men from the East were white.

4. Christmas trees are a Chrisitan symbol in no way related to paganism.

5. Like my own, Jesus’s mother was a virgin.

I take all of these issues on faith and that’s the way it should be.  I don’t want to see scientists trying to tear this stuff down because I know what’s true in my heart and that’s what really matters.  Science changes, but faith remains.  When science begins to go to war with my faith, I will always take my faith’s side.

The War on Thanksgiving

Turkey Day? We must battle back against the liberal agenda.

Turkey Day? We must battle back against the liberal agenda.

I was all set to unleash my rage at the atheists attempts to take the Christ out of Christmas.  I feel there are some people very deserving of my righteous indignation.  However, a lot of great men with bigger audiences than myself like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly have been fighting that battle for a few years now.  Instead I will focus on a new threat–The Atheists’ War on Thanksgiving

I can’t believe the number of circulars I am receiving in the mail and the number of signs that I am seeing in stores referring to the holiday of “Turkey Day”.  Even worse is “Black Friday”.   None of these names apply even the slightest but of gratitude to God for our bountiful harvest and the blessings we have received throughout the year.  This is all part of the secular progressive agenda to get Christianity, spirituality, Puritanism, and Pilgrims out of the public square.

The problem is that children will not ask mom and dad what is turkey day?  I mean turkey day is pretty obvious.  However, if they see the holiday referred to as Thanksgiving, they may ask about that.  This is all part of a movement to legalize gay marriage, narcotics, and public urination.

I ask all loyal readers of this blog to avoid all stores that refer to Thanksgiving as Turkey Day or Black Friday.  Let our boycott speak volumes as we get retailers to start putting the thanks back in Thanksgiving.
