War on Christmas
At 0600 hours, we’ll storm Maryville, Tennessee. Our mission: strip the joy from as many people’s Christmas celebrations as possible. Don’t rest until you’ve jammed needles from every Christmas tree in every Christian home into the eyes of every sweet, godly boy and girl. Shit in the local church’s manger. Show no mercy and may Dawkins have mercy on your intellect.
The Fox Hysteria Channel seems to think that the mission of the unnamed enemy in the war on Christmas is something akin to the above. They never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever seem to get that no one is trying to deprive private entities like families and churches from celebrating their holiday any way they see fit. The problem is that municipalities in the United States may not participate in religious observances. If every resident of a town belongs to the same church, let the church hold the annual Christmas celebration. NOT THE FUCKING TOWN.
Jesus fucking christ. Now I’m angry. Are these people so fucking stupid that they don’t see why the Constitution they all claim to care so deeply for prohibits the establishment of state religion? They have no problem looking one clause over and seeing that their free exercise is protected. If you are Christian, and you don’t get it, try this exercise: imagine that everyone in your town but you converts to Islam. They want to have large Muslim observances on town land, using town money. Would you be happy about it? Probably not. Even if you don’t care what they do in their homes or at their mosques, you don’t want the town to give its official endorsement to their religious activities. And you’d be right.
No one is saying that you can’t celebrate Christmas. No one is even saying that you can’t celebrate Christmas publicly. All anyone is saying is that town governments should not be giving their imprimatur to religious activities. Stop whining, you miserable pieces of shit.
