CHRISTMAS and the politically correct jerks

This article ,others like it, and commercials on television from the past couple of years really twists my knickers. I'm sick to death of the politically correct crap surrounding CHRISTMAS. Must we all apologize for calling the holiday what it is? It's CHRISTMAS folks. That's right, not Xmas, but CHRISTMAS. Yep, got to have the CHRIST in it to be CHRISTMAS. The holiday contains CHRISTMAS trees, not holiday trees.

Do you hear the Jewish people apologizing for Hanukkah? I don't think so, and I don't think that Christians should apologize for saying the word or celebrating the holiday of CHRISTMAS either.

The politically correct crowd are so scared of offending the athiests and the agnostics that now they are avoiding all references to the word Christmas. This is not just a "holiday" where we spend money on lavish gifts for loved ones (and money on white elephant gifts for everyone else.) This is a religious holiday. It's our Lord and Savior's holiday. It is offensive to us Christians that our holiday is now treated as a pariah holiday.

Do you think the Jewish would put up with this? What of the African Americans and the completely fabricated holiday of Kwanzaa (before you get upset, check the website - it even says "Dr. Maulana Karenga, the creator of kwanzaa")?

So why are the Christians being bashed? More importantly, why are the Christians allowing it? Every corporation is now tip-toeing around the word CHRISTMAS. Again, must we all apologize for calling the holiday what it is? I refuse to set aside my religion and my love of CHRIST to make the politically correct jerks happy. I'm absolutely and completely offended at the direction that society is taking on things like this.

But that's just my 2 cents on the subject. If this offends, well too bad. After all, didn't I say that I wasn't going to apologize?

  1. Xmas is Christian. The X is derived from the Greek for Christ. It's just another way of writing it and is pronounced Christmas not Exmas.

    So Xmas does keep the Christ in Christmas.

  2. AMEN, SISTER!!!I, too, am sick to death of all this crap! Now, Santas are being trained to say, "Ha,Ha,Ha" instead of the traditional "Ho,Ho,Ho" because it may insult the ladies of the evening?! Give me a break!

    actually, I do believe the whole origination of "Xmas" was for the earlier Christians to avoid the authorities when Christianity was illegal. I think the X represents the cross. I coul be wrong about all this but I know that Xmas isn't anti-christ.
