Debunking the so called War on Christmas

More distractions from the crazy right wing.

Have a Holly, Jolly Holiday

Conservatives, Others Angry Over Removals of Word 'Christmas'

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, in considering the ongoing war on Christmas, let us begin with the evidence that Mathew Staver, president of the Liberty Counsel, calls "Exhibit A."

Said prosecutorial evidence is tiny Ridgeway Elementary School in Ridgeway, Wis. Youngsters are set to perform a play in which the lyrics to "Silent Night," which celebrates the Christ child's birth, have been changed to "Cold in the Night," which do not. The charge, leveled by both Staver's group and the American Family Association, is that this school rewrote a sacred song to erase Christ from Christmas.

I think we should declare all out war on meta-punditry.

Yes, this is all very stupid. Still, as a gay person I cannot help but feel a brief sigh of relief that, at least for the moment, I am not the wedge issue. Yeah, I know it won't last but even a brief reprieve is welcome.
