Greetings Fellow “Vicious haters of all things Christian,”
Read and enjoy the following letter published, in very large type, in the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Sunday Jan 15, 2017:
“Christians should use Christmas as weapon
Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? The argument for using Happy Holidays is concern for Jews, Muslims and folks that are not Christians. There is something to be said for using Happy Holidays. However, it is Christmas that is being celebrated and not a winter holiday. Christmas is very important for Christians. More to the point, we are seeing a vicious war on Christians and a war on Christmas. Atheists have virtually destroyed Christianity in Europe and have set about destroying Christian belief in America. Vicious haters of all things Christian, like the late Christopher Hitchins, are on the march. Under the circumstances of this war on Christianity and Christmas, I believe Christians should proudly and resolutely say Merry Christmas. In fact, I believe Christians should try to get Congress to pass a law that mandates that between Thanksgiving and Christmas, businesses can only use the words Merry Christmas and not Happy Holidays in their advertising. It is time for Christians to wield Merry Christmas as a weapon against those who so hate Christianity.”
WALTER KEITH, BROOKHAVEN
Here in the US, the requested “…law that mandates that between Thanksgiving and Christmas, businesses can only use the words Merry Christmas and not Happy Holidays in their advertising” would seem to violate the First Amendment to the Constitution on a couple of counts:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion… or abridging the freedom of speech...”
The enemy is spooked.
