It’s the most wonderful time of the year – or not. The holiday season means something or nothing to many people. For the Religious Right, ‘tis the season for resurrecting the bogus “War on Christmas.”
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) has decided the Religious Right isn’t actually religious enough for his liking.
Henry Ford, the famed industrialist and notorious anti-Semite, once pontificated that Jews were ruining Christmas.
“The whole record of the Jewish opposition to Christmas...shows the venom and directness of [their] attack,” Ford carped in an early 1920s work he titled The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem.
The automaker went on to detail various localized Jewish “attacks” against the popular holiday.
The latest scare story making the Religious Right rounds involves a group of Colorado high school students who were told they could not meet during the school day for Christian prayer. As usual, the situation is not what it seems.
A lot of people are fooled by pro-voucher propaganda, but we’re pleased to note that President Barack Obama isn’t among them.
In a recent sit-down interview with Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly, Obama didn’t fall for any of O’Reilly’s assertions about “school choice.”
Earlier this week, FoxNews.com published a column by Religious Right attorney Kelly Shackelford accusing Americans United and other groups of ignoring the allegedly overwhelming evidence that there is a “war on Christmas.”
In his column, Shackelford mentioned several incidents that he insists are proof of this war. Let’s take a closer look at them, shall we?
Yesterday Fox News and Glenn Beck’s website “The Blaze” reported that a public school in Bulloch County, Ga., had banned Christmas cards. According to the Beck site, this was done because earlier this year Americans United had demanded that the school order teachers to “curtail religious expression while teaching.”
After years of flap about the fictional “War on Christmas,” an unexpected source finally spoke out against this phony issue: a Catholic priest who works for the Fox News Channel.
During a recent segment of “Fox and Friends,” the Rev. Jonathan Morris criticized those who put their focus into being offended about the perceived repression of Christmas rather than actually celebrating the holiday.
