LabRat has a smart piece up about about the alleged “war on Christmas”.
Before I returned to the church, I was putting up a manger scene outside because, well, somebody had to. That’s what it’s about. But there’s no war on Christmas. There’s a war on Christians, yeah, but that’s been going on (in liturgical time anyway) since December 26, 34 AD. And if Christmas isn’t Christ-massy enough, it’s only because there aren’t enough Christians living the reality of Advent. So instead of worrying quite so much about what the money-grubbing corporations are doing, perhaps we should look at what we are doing.
