who is offended at “Merry Christmas”?

9 12 2006

Recently I wrote a post called “Merry Christmas vs Happy Holidays”, and I want to add an interesting statistic to the story.

According to a Gallup poll in December 2005,

Only 3 percent of adults say it bothers them when stores specifically refer to the Christmas holiday in their displays, rather than “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings”.

Only three percent…  That is nowhere near a majority!  So why are stores taking out references to “Merry Christmas”?  There are special interest groups that want to secularize our country, removing all references to religion (especially Christianity).  Then they can more easily push their secular-progressive agenda.  This has happened in much of Europe and Canada, and their morality continues to crumble.

If you can’t use any religious-based standard of morality for your justification, then almost anything goes.  You may not think so, because we “naturally” know some things are wrong, but that won’t hold up in a court of law.  Some groups are seeking to legalize all sort of illegal and immoral activity, all in the name of “freedom” and “tolerance”.
