So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


A Jew says 'Merry Christmas'

This guy has it right.

I hate all the PC stuff. A story in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram chronicles one how the Parker County Commissioners have waffled back and forth about decorating the courthouse lawn for the holidays. Earlier this month, they prohibited any displays on the lawn, but Mark Davis from WBAP Talk Radio bitched about it on the air and enough listeners and Parker County residents called and raised hell and the court reconsidered.

According to the FWST story:
"This will include secular items such as a Christmas tree, reindeer, lights and other elements that are considered historical, traditional and secular as developed by a group of volunteers," said Parker County Judge Mark Riley. "I do want to add that it is the court's intent to comply with the Supreme Court's decisions."
The display can include a Nativity scene, Riley said. Precinct 3 Commissioner Charles Akin said the display is not a Christian/atheist issue but will depict the holiday.
Local attorney Earl King said he is delighted. "I think the commissioners created a very good procedure for permitting the citizens of Parker County to acknowledge the celebration of the Christmas season in a traditional way," he said.

Geesus. They aren't trying to "witness" to anyone and save any souls. They just want to celebrate Christmas. Some atheists got their panties in a wad about this. I really don't get it. I don't care if the courthouse has a big mennorah on it or even a festive basket or menorrah-looking candle in recognition of the made-up Kwanzaa holiday. I'm too drug-induced to really debate this properly. How about I just say that these atheists who are intolerant of the world suck. I tolerate people of all faiths and typically respect them for their beliefs. I just don't get people who don't.

    Tonight, when purchasing the libations, I was told "Happy Holidays".

    I quickly retored:

    "Am I wearing a Yarmulke? Am I black? No, then it is Merry Christmas!"

    Two people applauded, and the cashier was taken aback...

    Whose Paranoid

    You old Grinch!


    I think enough people, like us, will cause people to just relax and say Merry Christmas and political correctness be damned.

    My sister-in-law married a Jewish guy and they celebrate Hannukah now. I still send Christmas cards and Christmas gifts. They're not offended. If they want to use them as Hannukah gifts, that is their perogative as it is mine to send Christmas greetings and love. *shrug*

    Merry Christmas!
