That's it Saint Nick! It's go time!

This is the second year in a row where the defenders of Christmas have strapped on their godly armor to do battle with heathen scum.

I don't really have anything to add to the clamor except to say that it's mindbogglingly stupid to think that Christian religious holidays are on their way out.

Especially if the basis for this assertion is that some American institutions don't force all their employees to make the sign of the cross and wish everyone they encounter a joyous celebration of the birth of Christ. Or if in some locations they don't refer to the decorated tree as the birth of Christ tree.

Look folks, you can celebrate Christmas to your heart's content. Celebrate on. No one is stopping you. You are not suffering religious persection because every time you turn around your religious faith isn't being reinforced by the state and corporate America.

This is religious persecution.

This, not so much.

And this is nothing to speak of the self-appointed defense ministers of the birth of our lord.

And when Bill O'Reilly threatens to bring 'horror' to the opponents of Christmas, I wonder if he means this kind of horror?
