The War On XMass: How Long Before FOXXNEWS Starts Their Annual Edition (sic!)

For the last 2 years or so, FOXNEWS has been running on all their talk shows and news magazine, segment "denouncing" the undermining the Christian religion and Christmas in particular.

The segments invariably consist of picking up anecdotal incidents of conflict in communities, involving religion or/and Christmas display on public space.

It amuses me to watch it every year.

They report, you decide!

Now imagine them doing similar thing about Islam. After all they are fair and balanced.

How long has Fox's war on intelligence been going on now?

There is a war on Christmas, and Christians, in the USA.
The one group it is okay to denigrate at will.

It's a subject that resonates with a lot of Americans.

Target changes.
Salvation Army bans.
Christmas pageants in school removed.

As for the Islamic side, it is the most promoted religion
on tv, and in the news. It's now taught more in schools
than Christianity is. Public schools now have Muslim
teaching segments in history or social studies. Whereas,
we've gone out of our way to remove Christian studies
entirely.

Though, if there is a long segment on Islam, it will probably
be on Fox News. As MSNBC is too busy with the OJ trial and the
latest missing blonde student somewhere.

Fox News on the best rating day gets a pittance of the ratings
the networks do. Yet, somehow, it irritates more people. Why?
If conservatives and the moderates of America have been forced to
see the three networks, and the major cable stations, all of which
are liberal...why can't liberals tolerate one small news cable
station that gets a few million viewers at best each night. One
that actuallyl does say okay, this segment is commentary, this
segment is news.

This was one positive aspect of going to a private school all of my life. We had great Christmas celebrations and they were never ruined because of someone's beliefs. We all enjoyed it and even though I am not a believer I still was able to enjoy Christmas in my own way.

Poor Christians. They've been pretty much wiped out since the state is no longer allowed to compel children to pray to their version of God.

What I"ve never quite understood about Fox's idiotic "War On Christmas" hooey is the obsession with simple greetings (saying "happy holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas"). Is trying to be sensitive to other people's feelings really more anti-Christian than, say, turning the birth of the "Lord and Savior" into an orgy of base materialism?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Plus, it's shorter to say "Happy Holidays" than it is to say "Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanza, Have a nice Boxing Day and oh by the way Happy New Year who do you think will win the big bowl game anyway?"

They are conservative all right.
The kind of conservatives John Dean wrote about:
Conservatives Without Conscience.
The leaders do not care about principles and laws breaking, as long it benefits their camp
The rank and file will follow not matter the leaders regardless of their shortcoming:
Moral foible, law breaking, changing side when convenient, harming other people, name it. The followers will always find some justification why what their leaders do is somehow excusable.

Just look at the last 2 years where national or state GOP politicians or republican clergymen have committed the most egregious offenses , yet
they rank and file still support them.

A couple more weeks and John Gibson, Bill O'Reailly, Sean Hannity and the cast of Foxx & Friend will launch this year installment of their annual ritual of manufactured outrage.
