Merry Christmas From The Far Left

Full Disclosure: I am not a Christian. But neither am I any other religion or an atheist. I am “none of the above”.
I believe in the Spirit of Christmas. Which for a Grinch level cynic like me is kind of peculiar. But life is full of dichotomies.
And I absolutely hate POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!
Anywhere. Any Time.
And Christmas has been one of the major times.
Attacking Christianity or attacking Capitalist Greed and Consumerism, The Left is always trying to play Grinch.
Bill O’Reilly: Since the forces of good overwhelmed the anti-Christmas brigades a few years ago, the annual yuletide controversies have been rather muted.

This year, the always-reliable American Civil Liberties Union threatened schools in Tennessee with doom if they promoted Christmas, and there were a few other atrocities. Generally, though, the traditions of Christmas are on display, bringing happiness to American children.

But dissenters remain. An atheist put up an anti-Christmas billboard outside the Lincoln Tunnel in New Jersey that reads: “You KNOW it’s a myth. This season, celebrate REASON!”

You know, I would like to celebrate reason, too. That’s why I support honoring a federal holiday that allows citizens a day off to think about a man who changed history by preaching “love your neighbor as yourself.”

The view some liberal folks have of Christmas is interesting. New York Times columnist Gail Collins is a moderate lefty who says this about the tunnel billboard: “In this battle for the hearts and minds of commuters, the atheists seem to have been overly belligerent, although it is understandable that they get a little testy this time of year.”

It is?

Why would any rational person get testy about a federal holiday that brings joy to the majority of their countrymen and helps the economy, to boot? As a Christian, I don’t mind the winter solstice people doing whatever it is they do. If it involves ice hockey, I might even participate. Why resent the happiness of others, especially if no harm is being done? That’s not reasonable.

Some liberal people believe that Muslims, Jews and atheists might feel “left out” of the Christmas revelry. Well, I feel left out when folks eat onions because my stomach can’t tolerate them. That’s just the way it goes. Muslims, Jews, Hindus and most every other religious group have their own special days, do they not?

Jesus, I believe, would be shocked that his own humble birth has now become an occasion for attack billboards. The wise men would also be appalled. King Herod might approve, but he also might have executed the atheists involved just for fun. That’s the kind of guy Herod was.

In the end, the anti-Christmas people are tiresome and petty. Christmas is about the birth of a child and the happiness of all the children who followed him into this world. The day is set up to create magic for youngsters and to steep them in giving and receiving. Fanatical adults should not be intruding on or interfering with the positive spirit of Christmas.

That means you, ACLU.

Finally, there is a reason why Congress designates special days for official celebration. As far as Christmas is concerned, it benefits the individual citizen and the country in general to think of others. That is what Christmas is truly about. It’s the reason for the season.

The Naughty and Nice Christmas list (stores) that has gotten smaller over the last few years.

The TAX DEAL

A small intermission to present this cartoon interlude.

Just in case you don’t think the far left is loonier than a Warner Brother Cartoon check this out from far, far left hacker “news” site- Gawker.com:

How Will Americans Spend the Obama Tax Cuts?

‘Nuff Said. The “rat sandwiches” was a nice touch though.

These people are too ideologically insane to know they were the beneficiaries of A Stimulus II.

And what’s this Porn obsession all about?

Now back to our regularly scheduled Holiday (unless the Left can figure out an Orwellian way to whitewash it completely that is)…

And I wouldn’t want to leave out the radical Atheists who just hate religion (especially Christianity) all together.

Drivers can mull over this challenge for the few minutes of purgatory it takes to cross under the Hudson River. Once they make it through the tunnel into New York, however, they’ll encounter another billboard, this one from the Catholic League.

It’s the same nativity scene, but this time with a retort: “You know it’s real.” (NPR- and no one got fired for writing about it! Amazing! I guess it wasn’t anti-muslim enough for that)

But the final word should go that bastion of the Left: The American Communist Liberals Unions, The ACLU (from their own website)- mentioned in the Bill O’Reilly piece in all it’s Christmas glory:

NASHVILLE – Responding to numerous complaints from families about religious holiday activities in Tennessee public schools, the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee (ACLU-TN) sent a letter late yesterday to the 137 public school superintendents across the state.  The letter reminded school officials that holiday celebrations focusing primarily on one religious holiday amount to a school’s unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

“The founders of the United States believed in the significance of religion.  But they also understood that decisions about when and how to practice religion are best left to individuals, families and religious institutions,” said Hedy Weinberg, ACLU-TN Executive Director.  “During the holiday season, it is especially important that we all embrace the constitutional guarantees of the First Amendment in order to ensure that religious freedom flourishes.”

The ACLU-TN letter cites several U.S. Supreme Court decisions, explaining that “While public schools can teach about religion and religious holidays, public schools may not engage in indoctrination.  Thus comparative religion courses can be taught but endorsing religious doctrine or sponsoring religious activities is unconstitutional.”

The letter further explains, “[ACLU-TN] welcome[s] holiday celebrations that teach children about a variety of holidays.  We believe, however, that holiday celebrations that focus primarily on one religious holiday can result in indoctrination as well as a sense within students who do not share that religion of being outsiders to the school.”
Merry Christmas!
