Easter

If you happen to take the Washington Post you’ll notice something so obviously missing in the Easter Sunday edition that you’ll doubt your calendar.  Not a single mention of Easter in this national newspaper except for a reference to it in the Metro Section in an article associated with foot washing.  It wasn’t worthy of the national news section, nor the international news section, nor the style section, nor sports, nor opinion.  One article in Metro.

Maybe their own calendar is broken.

Did Christmas survive Christmas?

Christmas Tree

Another Christmas has come and gone and in spite of the best efforts of many to denigrate its spirit, it appears to have survived.  We had those refusing to say Merry Christmas, banning nonsecular holiday decorations, and purging all references to Christ from primary school “holiday” programs, but on the morning of 12/25/15 families across the country woke up to a Christmas tree and gave thanks for their simple blessings as they ate their Christmas meal, Christians and non-Christians alike.  In fact, according to a Pew Research Center survey, Christmas represents a nation-wide event celebrated by 92 percent of the population.

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.

Extremists

There are those who’s nose goes straight up in the air, their arms immediately cross over their chests followed by a heavy sigh of acrimonious air exhaled if anyone dares to criticize the Islamic faith,  After all, even the President wagged his finger at us to say that Christians are no better.  Look no further than the crusades.  To that bunch of hooey we say get a grip on reality and start loosening up on your PC condition.  Too bad you can’t go back hundreds of years and try to fix that crusade problem.  In the mean time, can we focus on why we’re more likely to today to be beheaded than we were a decade ago?
