Take action now:

Putting the "X" back in Xmas

TalkLeft is exercised about this AP report, but for different reasons than the ones I quote:

Emboldened by their Election Day successes, some Christian conservatives around the country are trying to put more Christ into Christmas this season...

The push from the religious right troubles Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. [Barry Lynn is apparently a "normal"...]

...But the "keep the Christ in Christmas" contingent is particularly agitated this year over what its members see as a troubling trend on Main Street: Target stores banning Salvation Army bell ringers; UPS drivers complaining to a free-speech group that they have been told not to wish people a "Merry Christmas" (an accusation UPS denies as "silly on its face and just not true"); and major corporations barring religious music from cubicles and renaming the office Christmas bash the "end of the year" party...

Conservative radio and TV talk show hosts have chortled over some recent incidents of what they consider political correctness run amok.

In Kansas, The Wichita Eagle ran a correction for a notice that mistakenly referred to the Community Tree at the Winterfest celebration as a "Christmas Tree." And the mayor of Somerville, Mass., apologized after a news release mistakenly referred to the Dec. 21 City Holiday Party as a "Christmas Party."

But to many ["normals"], the threats and demands that stores put up "Merry Christmas" signs are no laughing matter...

SURE GLAD TO HEAR THAT BARRY LYNN IS TROUBLED, IF HE WOULD BE THE CHRISTIAN THAT HE CLAIMS HE WOULD NOT BE TROUBLED.

WHEN AN ORDAINED MINISTER WHO WORKED FOR THE ACLU, AGREES THAT THE PRODUCING OF AND VIEWING CHILD PORN WAS OKAY, HE SHOULD ALSO BE TROUBLED.

AS YOU MAY KNOW HE APPEARED ON CROSSFIRE YEARS AGO, SO THE CHILD PORN IS ON RECORD.

IN MAY OF THIS YEAR I MAIL HIM AN OPEN LETTER WHERE I CONFRONTED HIM ON THE CHILD PORN AND MANY OTHER THINGS WHICH HE HAS REFUSED TO REPLY.

THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO MAKE THESE COMMENTS.

BEST REGARDS
