The World at War

The Strib has an article outlining the secular war on Christmas, or at least the people who pretend that there is such a thing. Mostly, it's about people getting angry that stores say "Happy Holidays" rather than "Merry Christmas." This is cause for concern, as it means that certain companies are striving for inclusiveness rather than kowtowing to the majority.

Happily, many Minnesotans are intelligent enough to realize that there are people in the world other than themselves. Rev. Frank Nelson of Woodbury Baptist: "Christians should not impose their beliefs on an entity like business. ... We are not a Christian culture. We have a culture with lots of traditions."

Happy Holidays, PePers. I love you all.

Yeah, I heard about this on The Colbert Report.

In addition to being all myopic and stuff, boycotting a store for using Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas is a slap in the face to all who love the use of alliteration. Not only and I part of this group, but it also includes elderly folks, disabled people, and lifeguards. If anybody deserves a break, then surely it's them.
