Saving Christmas

      Jim Cole, in today's Marietta [GA] Daily Journal (see below for link to his letter), continues the highly misleading, "fake news" pretense that there has been or is any "war on Christmas" or that there is any need to "save Christmas" from "political correctness" or from secularists' persecution of Christians. Cole is right that the American holiday has pretty much always had both religious and secular aspects, and he's certainly right that any Christian who wants to say "Merry Christmas!" should do so with no fear of offending anyone reasonable.

      But he's absurdly wrong in suggesting that President Trump or anyone else has somehow restored good sense or courage on this.

      I'm certainly not, as all who know me know, a Christian, and I don't say "Merry Christmas" lest someone think I've converted, but many non-Christians do say it, as it may mean either, "May Christians enjoy their holiday" or "May Americans enjoy the secular aspects." The Christian church adapted (including choosing a date for it) their celebration of what they consider to be Jesus's birth to fit in with the many other, non-Christian, celebrations this time of year. "Happy holidays" should not be offensive to Christians, as it is nearly always intended to be inclusive and not critical.

      I certainly take no offense if someone wishes me a "Merry Christmas," unless, as has very occasionally happened, it is issued with a bit of snarl and clearly intended to rebuke me for my atheism.

      Happy holidays!

          Jodi Goodman , I've no idea how active on Yabberz you may be, or even how much you'll read. As you'd expect, there are some irrational commenters here, from the left and the right (I know names but won't bandy them about here). There are some interesting opinion-mongers on here, thoughtful and knowledgeable even when I don't happen to agree with them--and I will name some of these, as I recommend them to you if you are going to spend much time on Yabberz. (I may add others later, and these are in no particular order.)

          Read: opie , Retired669 , alohacowboy , Kevin Mc Daid , and ... (Yabberz only allows 5 users named in a post, so more to come immediately, with you and four others named--interpret as recommendations.)

          What's This Noise About Vaccinations About?

              I am not sure, nor do I understand what is Liberal or Conservative relative to vaccinations. If you eat right, take care of yourself, I figure you don't need vaccinations. Now, say a cold comes along, a cup of hot tea, perhaps an Herbal with honey and lemon, (ginger, or perhaps cinnamon, maybe verbena and lemongrass) will do the trick. Heck, that was what was done before the Pharma entered our lives, and it worked.

                  The idea that the US doesn't have agents in other countries, doesn't influence elections, is absurd, like believing the hype about some guys with box cutters and their leader in an Afghan cave brought down those buildings in NYC.

                  You can't sell a lie if people don't believe you.

                  Now, it has become common knowledge that Assange got the Podesta emails from the Russians although he says he didn't.

                  The WMDs should have told the tale. You can't just believe these people, they will lie. America has chosen to believe them anyway. The crisis is in the success of acceptable, convenient, lies.
