MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Some say the war in Christmas doesn’t exist?

February 13th, 2007

The following is a list of websites that help reconfirm the claim that the War on Christmas is alive and well. They try and claim the war on Christmas doesn’t exist, yet they leave out the most vivid examples of the war we have and terribly skew the facts. Interested reads none the less.

-There is no war on Christmas
This site claims that Christians started the War on Christmas. Is that what I’m reading?

-The phoney war on Christmas
Luton council, we are told, has banned people from celebrating Christmas. Birmingham has renamed the season Winterval. A Reading man has been told to take his decorations down. There’s only one problem with the ‘PC campaign’ against Christmas - it’s pure nonsense. By Oliver Burkeman

-Why conservatives despise the phrase happy holidays.
Godless liberals, they suggest, have introduced the exotic phrase happy holidays into the lexicon and, in their spare time, have crassly commercialized the sacred observance of Christ’s birth. Actually, it’s these extremists who have grown newly assertive. They object to widespread holiday practices that have been deeply embedded in American life for decades.

One word… huh?

-EndChristmas.com
Support the War on Christmas!

(keep in mind that several of these site claim there is NO war on Christmas. Odd isn’t it?)

2007 is here… now what happens with the blog?

January 3rd, 2007

We’re preparing to spend the better part of 2007 finishing HelpSaveChristmas.com, the main site for this blog. The 2006 Holiday season was really kind of a warm up for things to come. We wanted to jump in and get free Wordpress hosting via ConservaBlogs and figured we would go ahead and start blogging things we could find around the web.

Stay tuned! We’ll be posting stuff every week for the rest of the year, and we’ll be sure to let you know when the main site is live and ready to go.

If you have tips please do let us know ASAP. Also, if you wish to join us in some blogging here you’re more than welcome to do so.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Tim Heffron and The War on Christmas

January 3rd, 2007

Tim Heffron serves a healthy dose of “in your face” to the editorial page editor of The Roanoke Times, Dan Radmacher.

Heffron lives in Roanoke.

It’s amazing that the rantings of a lunatic can be passed off as good media. It’s even more amazing that the lunatic making the rantings claims to be doing it for good or even noble causes. Such are the rantings of that well-known, or maybe not-so-well-known editorial page editor of The Roanoke Times, Dan Radmacher. Okay, so that was unfair, but your condemnation of Bill O’Reilly is of the same vein (”Christmas bullies manufactured this ‘war on Christmas,’” Dec. 17).

No I do not agree that O’Reilly manufactured the war on Christmas. There is ample evidence of its existence, and your diatribe is just a small scuff on the surface.

The war is plainly evident when stores block their employees from wishing Merry Christmas rather than allow the smallest possibility that shoppers be reminded the meaning of this season.

The American holiday is not St. Nicholas or Santa Claus day; it’s not the Kwanzaa season; it’s not the Official Celebration of Winterfest; it is not the End of Year Shopping Extravaganza Sale Season! It is in fact the celebration of the birth of the savior of the world, Jesus Christ, true God and true man.

It’s probably one of the best War on Christmas related reads I’ve seen in 2007. Enjoy!

Politics and the Spirit of Christmas

December 22nd, 2006

The socialistic welfare state is extolled by liberal-socialistic-progressives as more Christian then Christianity, because the welfare state purports to help the needy. So did Hitler’s National Socialism.

Traditional Christmas spirit, depicted in Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, was the warmth of family gatherings, friendship, and loving kindness to everyone.

Today, however, many people insist that socialism IS Christianity. It’s certainly true that the early churches established by the Apostle Paul grew rapidly, because people found there the Christian love and fellowship, as well as support for the poor, sick, elderly, and disabled, that was available nowhere else.

The socialist political state, however, is expressly atheistic and materialistic. There can therefore be no identity between Christianity and socialism, simply on the superficial basis that they nominally espouse some of the same objectives.

No More Merry Christmas From Yahoo

December 20th, 2006

Over the years Google has been notorious for ignoring the biggest Holiday of the year. Google will display pagan images in it’s logo during certain times of the year, but refuses to recognize Christmas.

Now, it seems Yahoo has jumped on the anti Christmas band wagon. An e-mail from the Yahoo publisher network just dropped in. The e-mail was titled “Happy Holidays From The Yahoo Publisher Network”.

Happy holidays! To celebrate this special time of year, the Yahoo! Publisher Network Team has sent you a S.N.O.W. greeting from Yahoo!.

What about Christmas? How can I can into the Christmas spirit when everyone around me is scared shitless to say it?

$25,000 War On Christmas Via YouTube

December 20th, 2006

It looks like an atheist group is spending $25,000 for a new phase of its war on Christmas. The “Blasphemy Challenge” rewards participants for posting anti-Christian videos on YouTube.

Los Angeles — December 18, 2006. As part of its ongoing War on Christmas, the Rational Response Squad has launched a $25,000 campaign to entice young people to publicly renounce any belief in the sky God of Christianity.

How a Grinch Saved Christmas

December 20th, 2006

by Thomas Lindaman

Ah, December. It’s a month full of joy, fellowship, and good times.

Then we have to go to the mall. That’s when things get dicey. Sure, we may sing “Peace on Earth, good will towards men,” but that’s before we have to spend the better part of an hour walking from the car to the front door, sometimes in weather that would make the penguins at Ice Station Zero want to put on a parka over their tuxedos.

I may sound like a Grinch, but I think there are some things that we should do away with around Christmas, and I’m not talking about Aunt Edna’s fruitcake, the one that’s been passed from person to person since the fourth Wise Man, Izzy, got turned away at the manger because he brought it. Here is a list of things that should be first to go.

People who get offended at holiday greetings. I’ve heard people actually get upset if you wish them a Merry Christmas and they’re not Christian. We have Islamic extremist terrorists who want us dead merely because we don’t think Mohammed was all that neato, a situation in Darfur that would make a pessimist out of the best motivational speaker, and a declining situation in Iraq. And you’re upset over Merry Christmas? Listen, if a holiday greeting is the biggest thing on your plate right now, you have a pretty sweet life and no reason to complain about anything.

Remembering Why We Celebrate Christmas

December 13th, 2006

by Jeff Lukens

It’s that time of year again. Yes, it’s time for the flurry of shopping malls, office parties, house parties, presents, laughter and good cheer, decorations, too much food, Frosty, Santa, and reindeer.

Meanwhile, it’s the annual “December dilemma” for public officials on how celebrate a religious holiday without being sued by the ACLU. Gee, talk about Grinch. The secularist campaign to remove Christ from Christmas, and any religious reference of the holiday from public schools, parks, libraries, and government buildings is about as jolly as a cup of sour eggnog. In recent years, they even tried to stop children from saying “Merry Christmas” at school.

While Christmas is celebrated in the vast majority of homes across America, it seems the meaning of the holiday is often misunderstood. So, let’s think what Christ-mas is about for a moment.

How the Liberal Stole Christmas

December 8th, 2006

OK, now I don’t care who you are… this is funny.

Should we blame the Jews for the war on Christmas?

December 8th, 2006

Wow! This post over at WND really raises some questions about the war on Christmas and where it stems from.

It is the ACLU, which is overwhelmingly Jewish in terms of membership and funding, that is leading the attack against Christianity in America. It is they who have conned far too many people into believing that the phrase “separation of church and state” actually exists somewhere in the Constitution.

Is it really that valid to blame the Jews for the war on Christmas?
