Ah, Christmas is in the air. Malls are playing Jingle Bells over and over and over again in a sadistic attempt to drive all retail employees crazy. Christians think it’s the end of the world because the Wal-mart cashier says “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.” And the media runs stories almost weekly about how Christmas decorations are politically incorrect. Sometimes it feels like the newspapers run the same stories each Christmas in an attempt to drum up outrage and of course readership.
So, here at Political Jesus, I want to open up this post for people to add their favourite Christmas ‘the sky is falling’ story.
Like the school bus drivers who were told to undecorate their school buses. The bus drivers’ response to the whole situation, ““This is totally not a religious thing. This is about Christmas.” (facepalm).
Or how about the directive that Service Canada offices in Quebec were to have no holiday decorations that could be in view of the public, that was quickly overturned.
Your turn: What’s your favourite ‘it’s not Christmas without outrage/overreaction/hyper-political-correctness’ story?
