Voices: Grinches of Christmas

Don’t allow the grinches of Christmas and the atheistic American Civil Liberties Union, Obama, who claims we are “not” a Christian nation, and ilk to steal Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord, savior, sustainer and redeemer from our culture.

The ACLU’s aggression against Christianity is at its peak, especially in cities and towns across the nation with its fear, intimidation, disinformation and suing. The ACLU’s main threat is the “separation of church and state” hoax. The separation of church and state is not mentioned in the Constitution. The Constitution framers’ main thrust was not to establish a national church like the complex Church of England. The expression of “separation of church and state” was coined and used by associate Judge Black (1886-1971), an appointee of President Franklin Roosevelt. This anti-religious expression was seized by the ACLU and other atheistic groups hostile to religious freedom.

Here are several suggestions to counter the war against Christmas and Christianity:

1. Greet people with: “Have a blessed Christmas” and “Merry Christmas,” especially as a counter to “Happy Holidays.” I called an associate at (a local retailer) and she told me she was instructed to say “Happy Holidays.”

2. Place Nativity scenes in your front yards. If necessary, make them yourselves.

3. Place Christmas greetings on your doors and in your yard.

4. Use religious Christmas postal stamps on your cards.

With God’s help, the ACLU, Obama and his ilk will not destroy our Christian heritage and promote intrinsically evil objectives upon our Christian culture.

Peace on Earth to men of good will, not of a compromising will. Have a very blessed Christmas and forever.

Deus vult (God will it).
