Three Perspectives on Christmas

Three Perspectives on Christmas

Pat Boone’s Perspective – Pat counters the American secularists’ attack on Christmas by asking who, in fact, Christmas is for….. After all, it is for those who will receive it and its message.  Moreover, as Boone aptly points out, the Constitution guarantees us the right to the “free exercise” of our religion (which might include celebrating Christmas!).  (My response:  The ACLU-type scrooges are really overweening in their efforts to purge US culture of all remnants of an earlier era when the pre-eminence of Christianity in American popular culture was a given.)

Vox Day’s Perspective – Vox brings us to our senses by clarifying that the current ongoing attack on Christian Christmas by the general secular culture in this country is merely part and parcel of a worldwide persecution against Christians and Christianity globally.  Moreover, this persecution is something that Our LORD warned us of.  (My response:  We still do not need to roll over for the (as Michael Savage might say) pockmark-faced, drugged-up, radical homosexual ACLU types hellbent on attacking public manifestations of Christianity in our popular culture.)

Michelle Malkin’s Perspective – Michelle posts several things here.  (My response:  I particularly enjoyed hearing from the military chaplain stationed in Baghdad – especially about his desire to keep Christmas Christ-centered.  (Caveat: As a former Papist myself, I most certainly do NOT endorse the current Pontiff’s patently unscriptural teaching regarding the real presence in the host (read: transubstantiation) so unfortuitously inserted in the body of his Christmas Day homily included by Michelle in her post.)

He's running through the woods so black
A loyal servant of Christ
Dogs are barking down his back
He's running for his life

He came with words of love and peace
These heathens had to be saved
He thought that he could make them see
Instead he was enslaved

In captivity he spoke of god
To all he met he preached
But when his master's patience ran out
He knew he had to flee

Tears are running down his cheeks
As he sobbing realizes
That in this land his god is weak
And today he's going to die

He stumbles out onto an open field
Where an old oak tree grows
In the branches hang men of three
Dressed in preacher robes

His knees refuse to carry him on
Terror shines in his eyes
His faith in christ is almost gone
His god's left him to die
Below the dead he says his prayers
To the god he thought was alive
When he hears a calm voice say:

As his breath leaves his eyes open wide
A bright light comes from above
He greets this light with a smile
And thinks: "There is a God"

The sound of eight hooves reaches his ears
Comes from the heavenly light
Two wolves' howls fill his heart with fear
And he sees two ravens fly
Down from the sky a warlord rides
Like fire his one eye glows
And just before the preacher dies
He knows his god is false

vindalf, very weak and unconvincing. (childish and hateful, also.) Christianity has survived worse threats than you for the past 2000 years just fine, thank you. -- gunjam
