[As you may recall, the proprietor of this space traditionally celebrates Christmas by fleeing the country, and is currently riding out the storm in Morocco. However, if you're looking for a heaping helping of, er,
post-Christmas spirit, you've come to the right place! Our friend Isaac has some thoughts on the threat that almost made this year's Christmas not happen. Take it away, Isaac.
Well, Christmas has passed, so that must mean the librul War On Christmas (tm) is over now too. For now anyway.
See, those godless libruls just can't pass up any chance to persecute the helpless people in this country that call themselves Christians.
Polls show that upwards of 80% or so of people in the US profess to be Christians. Do you see what that means?
It means that 20%--probably less--of this country's population has cleverly orchestrated a massive conspiracy to hold the vast majority of this country hostage. Christians just can't get a break in this country any more, and are at the mercy of the liberals, who run everything now.
Librul atheists just aren't happy unless they're trying to keep people from worshiping God in the schools, force everyone to have abortions, marry a homosexual, view pornography, and (horrors!) treat women and black people like they really were people.
It doesn't stop there.
With atheist's threats of boycotts and intolerance, it's a wonder that shows like Touched By An Angel
, Highway to Heaven
, Joan of Arcadia
, Little House on the Prairie
, The Waltons
, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman
, The Brady Bunch
, Shining Time Station
, Davey and Goliath
, Adventures From the Book of Virtues
, and ABC After School Specials manage to even get on the air to go up against The Simpsons
and balance out the blatant homosexuality of the TeleTubbies and SpongeBob Squarepants and all those other atheist programs.
Sunday morning television and atheist cable networks have got so sinful, there's only Pat Robertson and the 700 Club, D James Kennedy, Robert Schuller, Jerry Falwell, Oral Roberts, Robert Tilton, Jimmy Swaggart, Creflo A. Dollar, Benny Hinn, Marilyn Hickey, Peter Popoff, William Branham, Carl Baugh, John Ankerberg, Garner Ted Armstrong, Kenneth Copeland, Paul and Jan Crouch, James Robison, Trinity Broadcasting, CBN, Jack Van Impe, Frederick Price, Ron Phillips, Rod Parsley, Joyce Meyer, Hal Lindsey, Zola Levitt, Bob Larson, T.J. Jakes, Jack Hayford, John Hagee, and Mother Angelica and a few hundred others on the tube these days, since the atheists ran them off.
AM radio has got so godless, you can only find Beverly LaHaye on about 600 stations around the country. Her husband Tim, author of the Left Behind series of books and merchandise dealing with the Rapture, have only managed
to eke out an anemic estimated $1 billion in sales.
And don't even get me started about all those liberals and atheists in the US government and the ACLU.
So what's left for the heathen hordes to ruin for everybody?
Christmas. The most important holiday of the year to real Christians.
Just forget for the moment that there is little to no actual direct evidence that there really was a Jesus. Forget that, even if there was a Jesus, he was probably born early in the fall rather than on December 25. Forget that there is literally no archeological or contemporary historical evidence that there was a Jesus. Forget that much or most of the Bible appears to have been lifted from earlier religions and Christians rituals and observances were copied straight from the Pagans.
Just forget about all that: Christmas is a holy day, and being religion, that's all the proof it needs. If enough people believe a thing, that means it's true.
Retailers were so scared of the atheists, they had to stop telling shoppers "Merry Christmas." The holiness of Christ's birth was defiled because retailers had to say "Happy Holidays" when they were selling X-Boxes to soccer moms. And when salespeople had to say "Season's Greetings," the significance of the Holiest of Holy Days was completely ruined for people shopping for IPods.
But Christians did manage a few defenders of both the faith and the holiday.
Bill O'Reilly selflessly offered himself up as a sacrifice to the hazards of the ungodly liberal hordes, and used his (sadly overlooked) little cable TV program to alert us all to the danger. When O'Reilly loudly protested the liberal conspiracy to force people to stop saying "Merry Christmas," the forces of darkness tried to change the subject and direct people to O'Reilly's website, which offered "holiday gifts," which they claimed showed him to be a hypocrite who made up the whole issue for ratings and money and to stir up tension.
To prove he wasn't a hypocrite, O'Reilly quickly eliminated that objection by changing his website.
But the damage had already been done. Liberals had somehow infiltrated the White House and managed to hijack George and Laura Bush's Christmas card list. The Bushes found themselves in the embarrassing position of having sent out thousands of Christmas cards with the dreaded, atheist, politically correct "Happy Holidays."
The liberal plot against Christmas was exposed in detail with Fox News "personality" John Gibson's book The War on Christmas
. When the liberal Rob Boston of the anti-American group Americans United for Separation of Church and State claimed on Gibson's program that Gibson had made it all up, Gibson cleverly and effectively exposed the weakness of Boston's criticisms by yelling loudly and talking over him so no one could hear what Boston was saying.
But the defenders of all that is good and right are a lonely bunch in the media.
Michael Moore and Molly Ivins have such a stranglehold on the media that, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Brit Hume, John Gibson, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Laura Ingraham, Thomas Sowell, Michelle Malkin, Cal Thomas, Pat Buchanan, John Stossel, John Mclaughlin, George Will, Lucianne Goldberg, Bob Grant, Oliver North, Gordon Liddy, Ken Hamblin, Armstrong Williams, Michael Reagan, Laura Schlessinger, Joe Scarborough, Tony Snow, Mara Liasson, Chris Matthews, Dennis Miller, Michael Medved, Cokie Roberts, John Hockenberry, Robert Novak, Tucker Carlson, Paul Weyrich, Andrea Mitchell, Brian Williams, Wolf Blitzer, Bill Schneider, Candy Crowley, Peggy Noonan, Bernard Goldberg, Matt Drudge, and Howard Kurtz just can't get a word in edgewise to speak for the other side.
If it were up to the librul media, you wouldn't even know there was another side. We all know the librul media did everything in iys power to cover up how evil Bill Clinton was. Remember how hard it was to find anybody willing to talk about how he and Hillary murdered Vince Foster just to laugh at him while he died and how Bill was raping interns? And remember, you heard it here first: Patriots in the legislature stood up to the liberals and barely managed to call an impeachment inquiry. But it failed because the librul media did everything in its power to cover it up.
And now the beleaguered Christians have once again used their meager resources and stood up, against all odds, David vs. Goliath, to the heathens that want to take out the "Christ" from Christmas and just leave it with the rancid commercialization that otherwise defines the season.
Thank goodness we all still have Santa, the reindeer, and all the elves at the North Pole, and the Grinch Who Stole Christmas to remind us how dearly we hold the birth of the baby Jesus at Christmastime.
So another Christmas came and went with no problem, no thanks to the godless atheist liberals. Until next year, that is.
[I know there's a boatload of way creepy folks mentioned above, and maybe it's just a personal thing, but I got caught up at Isaac's mention of "Fox News 'personality' John Gibson." I can't tell you what it is, but there's something about that guy, isn't there?
[Is it just me? I mean, okay, he's bellicose, devoid of the slightest human graces, and of course dumber than a dried fig—and I mean a really
dumb dried fig. And of course he has no clue how screechingly and universally clueless he is. But isn't that true of true of lots of these people?
[Or maybe that's it. Maybe he's
not a person! A robot? An android? A mass hallucination? Does anyone have any theories?
