A Politically Correct Holiday...Or Else
I recently read a well-crafted holiday post by a fellow blogger -- FTS -- regarding the Christmas Holiday and the attempts by some fringe, way-out-of-the-mainstream groups to dilute it to the point of public exclusion. Or, in the mocking words of one local radio talk show host, "if it saves even one person from being offended, wouldn't it be worth it?"
It moved me to dig deep into my archives, and retrieve my own thoughts on the efforts of a small but very loud minority to politicize and exorcise Christmas from the general public view.
I originally wrote and ran this column in December 1996, in the small town newspaper I wrote for at that time. Considering the fact that the majority of readers served by this paper at that time were Democrats, it was a wonder to me then and since that I wasn't run out of town, but I digress.
In the column, I speculated on the kind of holiday season we'd all 'enjoy', if we were to be 'saved' from our insensitive selves by the cultural-diversity-at-any-price, politically correct liberal activists and their judicial allies.
With no further adieu, enjoy reading and pondering what might have been (or yet may, if the activists win):
