The Reason for the Season...

I received this Poem in an E-mail this morning and it hit home so hard, that I had to passed it on,
I am so tired of the PC Police taking my freedoms, on the grounds that we don't want to offend others. Christians saying Merry Christmas is offensive.. I am not offended by saying Happy Ramadan, Happy Hanukkah or Happy Kwanzaa to you, so why should you be offended by saying Merry Christmas to me. If everyone should be tolerant to others religion then what happened to being tolerant of the Christian Faith... I believe we all have the right to worship our own God and celebrate our own Faith and Holidays...
SO IF I OFFEND YOU OR ANYONE ELSE BY SAYING MERRY CHRISTMAS INSTEAD OF HAPPY HOLIDAY, WELL!!! GET OVER IT, I'M OFFENDED EVERYDAY BY PEOPLE TELLING ME WE CAN'T PRAY IN SCHOOLS OR AT A SPORTING EVENT. THAT MY CHILD CAN'T WEAR A SHIRT WITH CHRIST ON IT, EVEN THOUGH IT IS PC FOR OTHERS TO WEAR A SHIRT WITH THEIR BELIEF ON IT, THAT I CAN'T CELEBRATE MY LORDS BIRTH....NO, I CAN'T SAY CHRISTMAS TREE, MERRY CHRISTMAS......YES I AM OFFENDED EVERYDAY AND THEY ARE NO BETTER THAN ME, TO BE OFFENDED.


*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken &; Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*
*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS ,
not Happy Holiday !*

Please, all Christians join together and
wish everyone you meet
MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christ is The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!

  1. Molly's got her dander up, watch out! lol!

    I am not a Christian but I find those trying to remove the Christian basis of Christmas to be ridiculous and idiotic! Plus unkind! There is room for all, for all beliefs, and trying to exclude Christianity from Christmas is just crazy!!! It's as anti-diversity as you can get!!! If everyone counts, then that means Christians count, too! Geez! These PC police are bores and dangerous to boot!
