Political correctness going too far

Posted: Friday, December 30, 2005

I’d like to know why our troops can’t say “Merry Christmas” in their videos home on the news? Even to their own family? Is someone trying to be politically correct about something? Is this another “Bush” thing because his Christmas cards say “Happy Holidays”?

Are Christians being chastised for their religion? There’s a Christmas tree and decorations in the Borough Building but no “Merry Christmas” anywhere. And there’s a huge Christmas tree in the White House. You know that really makes some people mad!

Do you suppose there would be a Christmas tree in the White House if the president was Jewish or another religion? How would that make you feel? Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. Without Christ there is no Christmas! He is the reason for the season regardless of what time of the year it’s celebrated. This group is trying to take him out of our Christian celebration and replace him with a retail nightmare.

I wonder how they’ll get him out of Easter? They can’t kill him! They’ve already tried that!
