The War on Christmas: An Obscenity-Laced Rant

I can't stand it! It's so...so...everything I hate! So humorless, so lacking in context and perspective, so hypocritical, so "us against them," so let's-find-a-new-enemy! You stupid fucking people propagating and buying into Bill O'Reilly's War Against Christmas. (...which should really be the title of a comedy album, released in time for the holidays!)

Do you really think that baby Jesus would GIVE a SHIT whether Wal-Mart's holiday signage and greeters said "Christmas"?
Do you really think that you're modeling a great democracy where people of different faiths live harmoniously side-by-side, unlike Iraq? Jesus was about PEACE and HOPE and "Do unto others," and care for the poor and sick. Be humble, be servants.
Review your text, Christians! Focus, focus! Jesus could teach you quite a bit about what real persecution looks like.

I could go on and on. I'm so pissed off by this manufactured, divisive stuff. This is the first Christmas that my son is old enough to notice and participate, and we're going all out: the tree is fancy and fragrant, lights and candles glow in the night, Elvis croons his Christmas hits from the stereo. It's such a magical time: all this beauty and spectacle at the darkest time of the year. I even love the Christmas story, with its earthiness and mysticism. The star! The child! The dream of peace!

It's a crying shame that this is the same year that the bullies and blowhards decided to launch their ridiculous campaign.
By the way, who are these "secular humanists" who are running amok like evil elves?

I hear ya!! I hear that people are now saying that they're getting a "holiday tree", instead of a Christmas Tree. Whatever...

Also, I received a forward -- from a rightwing family member -- calling for a boycott of Target because it has "holiday" rather than "Christmas" on its signage. I swear the whole thing sounds like a conspiracy by WalMart. For real people, get lives.

People who seek spirituality and affirmation at the mall should be caled out for the idiots they are.
