Don't Be Insulted, But Have A "Merry Christmas"

Decenber 24, 2012

We’ve reached a point in history where many people feel uncomfortable wishing others a “Merry Christmas.”  How sick is that?

Remove both “Christ” and “Mass” from “Christmas” and you have nothing left.  How did a country that was founded on the principle of religious freedom reach a point where we greet each other with a generic, “Happy Holidays,” a phrase about as meaningful as, “Have a Nice Day?”

Rather than accepting all religions, we have become a country that rejects all religions.  You won’t find a manger or a cross in a public place, but neither will you find a Menorah or any other symbol of Hanukkah.  It’s as if religion no longer can be celebrated in this melting pot of all religions.

So have a very Merry Christmas.  If that phrase offends you, whether you’re a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Mormon, agnostic or atheist, I feel sorry for you.  I suggest that you learn to accept the greeting for its intended feeling of good will.  Accept others for their beliefs and, hopefully, they will accept you for your beliefs.

So stamp out “Happy Holidays” and have a very “Merry Christmas.”
