Thank you Lord for the events all over the world that knocked the Scott Peterson story off the air. Hopefully, for good. Don't get me wrong. I think Fox News is the best news source on the national level, but they have made running a story in the ground, an art form. Every one of the "talking heads" had something to say about him. The jury said he did it and he should die for it. There, I said, in 12 words, what it took them all day to say.
Other than that, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Yes, I said Christmas. Not holidays, although, I hope everyone that celebrated other holidays had a good one as well. The attack on the Christmas holiday is getting worse. Intolerant idiots, that complain about Christians being intolerant, are now upset when people or a group uses the term "Christmas" and not "holiday" when wishing good tidings to others. I say, get over it. If one wants to wish you a Merry Christmas and exclude all other holidays, then that is what they want to do. How many Christians are offended when someone says "Happy Hanukkah", or "Happy Kwanza", or "Happy Holidays"? They aren't. So, is it right for them to whine when we say Merry Christmas?
What about businesses, organizations or governments? Well, it is simple. Businesses and organizations need to decide what they stand for or recognize. I am a Christian and if I owned a business or was over an organization, then I would recognize Christmas, not holidays in general. Others, including the ACLU can just get over it. I wouldn't sell out and put a bunch of Santa crap out either. I raise a lot of eyebrows when I tell people that my children were raised thinking Santa was a fictional character. Some idiots think that we are somehow "robbing" them of a childhood. I will tell you now that they get excited on the 24th, just like my brothers and I did, and I don't have to lie to them. What a concept. As far as government, well, it depends. If the area is mostly Christian, then Merry Christmas is OK. If it is mostly muslim, then I guess we would hear the story of Abdul, the red nosed camel. If it is in question, put it up on a referendum. Let the majority rule. How many times have you heard of a community that had one intolerant idiot that was "offended" by a nativity scene. I hear of one at least once a year, but this year, the majority is not being silent. I say it is about time we stand up and say, "if you don't like it, don't look at it."
