It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go. There’s a Santa in every mall, and a tree in every hall. Salvation Army’s bells are ringing, and everybody is singing tiding of comfort and joy.
The greatest Christmas icon, and I’m not referring to Jesus or Santa, I’m talking about the Queen of Xmas herself, Mariah Carey is blaring from every radio.
But once again a discordant sound is heard: Republican evangelicals bleating about a “war on Christmas,” Talk about fake news, godless liberals aren’t burning down every Christmas tree they see and they aren’t cursing out anyone who wishing them a “Merry Christmas.”
The war on Christmas is yet another cultural issue created entirely out of whole cloth by televangelists who are experts at creating myths and fake stories like the Rapture, for example.
The faux war on Christmas is a money-raising grift for televangelists and Republican politicians. Every year, sure as clockwork, evangelicals scream that “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” while they go in debt buying gifts for friends, family, co-workers, most of whom they don’t even like.
And every year they proclaim that they beat back the godless liberals and once again saved Christmas. After all, it’s easy to declare victory when there isn’t a war.
