Default So It's not a WAR on Christmas...But it’s what?

If it’s not a “WAR” on Christmas then what is it?

there have been a couple of post in the political Cartoon thread mocking the idea that there’s a “WAR on Christmas” while ido think the language is Hyperbolic and some people’s reactions to various ANTI-Christmas, Christmas negating and/or Christmas minimizing actions by Gov’t, Retailers and other orgs has been overblown at times. Still there is a very real … “DISSING”, Sidelining or Muffling of Traditional and Religious Christmas activity and talk.

There has been LITIGATION nearly EVERY year for a decade or 3 because someone has found Christmas … in some way... offensive or oppressive or something
This is real.

Can everyone admit this much?
and if we can all be honest enough to admit that.
OK it’s not a “WAR” but what should we call it then. because it’s sure not a HAPPY EMBRACE of Christmas if people are taken to court over nativity scenes and some folks are afraid to even SAY “MERRY CHRISTMAS” for fear someone might be offended or they’ll be reprimanded on their jobs.

Ok so it’s NOT a “war” so what is it then?

Along with snow on Christmas, come the human snowflakes.

Personally I’m not worried about Sharia in the U.S.. Are you worried about the religious Right “TAKING OVER” and forcing you to say “Merry Christmas”?

C’mon my previous post was a serious question don’t blow it off.

the ACLU and others take people to court over CHRISTMAS events and issuing bans on Christmas talk. so who exactly are the one’s OVER reacting here Surly?

it’s not a “war” but what should we call it?
Litigation is not HAPPY EMBRACE, or CELEBRATION, or Benign Tolerance, it’s something else.

Yes, the commercialization is the biggest threat to losing the meaning of the religious holiday, but Fox and the right wing w ould never dare mention that.

I don't give a rat's ass about businesses commercializing Christmas. The anti-Christmas weenies need to put a cork in their displeasure of regular people celebrating a well-known holiday.

Of course you don't. . So what do you really care about Christmas? It's meaning to Christians, or just another reason to hate on "them" people?

What I care about Christmas, and what other people care about Christmas, is not any business of the anti-Christmas weenies.
