Got Your Christmas Card from the White House Yet?

Seems there's a problem with the Bush's Christmas cards, all one million of them just now sent out around the world. Problem (to some) is: they don't mention Christmas. Nor do they quote the NEW Testament, that one and only good "reason for the season" book. No, the Bush's chose to quote the Eye-For-An-Eye-Almighty-On-High OLD Testament. Just in case you're not on the mailing list, here's the message on the card:

The Lord Is My Strength And My Shield;
In Him My Heart Trusts;
So I Am Helped, And My Heart Exults,
And With My Song I Give Thanks To Him.

Psalm 28.7 (RSV)

With best wishes for
a holiday season
of hope and happiness.

George W. Bush Laura Bush

The complainants are getting their danders up anywhere they fear the creeping scurge of secularism - or the existence of any other winter rites or rituals save the baby cheeses. From Wal-Mart to the White House, the Born Agains-ONLY mongers are trying to make PC become CC, Christian Correct.

But when it comes to the OLD (conservative) vs. the NEW (progressive), shouldn't we give Mr. and Mrs. Bush a little credit for honesty here? They're not really NEW Testament sorta folk. OK, Laura probably is at heart but ever so discreetly a New Testament kinda gal, school librarian and all - and not a book burner, I don't imagine. But she puts on a good game face for her wartime hero husband - and seems to swallow whatever dainty live and let live bones might dwell deep inside. Mrs. Bush's holiday diplomacy, as in every other season, is more smile than substance. So Georgie's Born When? churchy friends get their way, cloaked like Noah - or Cheney - and about as out of synch with the 21st Century outside the borders of Kansas.

Here at A Better Nation, we celebrate the softer side of the Happy Holidays brooohahah (sp?).

Happy holidays? Why some say that's sacrilege.

Season's greetings? There's that creeping crud of godless secularism. Season's? Which season? We've got four of them, so says the (secular) calendar, so which one?

Ah, these insisters on Christmas-ONLY salutations are all just Kloset Kwanzaa Killers, BTW, surely. Otherwise, live and let live? Turn the other cheek? Obey the Golden Rule? Really NOT a very brave bunch (since bravery connotes some sort of honor to the act), but hey, at least they've got audacity (and the upper hand - NOT the hand of any god) on their side. And holier than THOU? They own that, too. Trademarked it, even.

Hurrah for the "live and let live" season. Even the "baby cheeses"! For me it's the family season.

I don't see anything wrong with "Holiday Season". It is the season of holidays, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Christmas, Kwanza, and the Winter Solstice. However, it is a Christmas tree and not a holiday tree. Sometimes political correctness shows it's followers to just appear stupid.

What's happening how is some group of Christians are attacking the secular liberals with the same tactics that the secular liberals used on them.

Being hostile to religion is exactly the same as supporting an establishment of religion. The Supreme Court knows it is. Check out the recent Ten Commandments ruling. You can be secular without being hostile. That's the real softer side .

Happy Monkey Days to all of you!
