Why Steal Christmas?
Example--on his TV program Huckabee opined
that maybe these spoilsports worry “What if Christians are right? Then where does that leave me?”
Another, but more serious explanation for the hostility toward Christmas is the one given from the beginning–that there really is an anti-Christ spirit -- still being channeled today.
Then there is the “let’s give them the benefit of the doubt approach.” What if they have a legitimate position of wanting Christianity “out of my face!” After all, in the beginning it was all about a supernatural God sending his supernatural son to train and equip us with supernatural weapons against a supernatural enemy. So what’s this knockoff of the original–obsessed over morality and guilting people to be charitable? Scolds. Sharia lights. If this is what the grinches want out of their face and behind church walls, could they be on to something?
