At this time of the year, countless government agencies will be closed
for a holiday to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Why are we standing by allowing this flagrant violation of church/state
separation extremism to go unchecked? Where's the militant, radical
"get everything out of government-funded projects that looks like
religion" crowd? Is there no shred of decency in the halls of our
various branches of governments?!? How dare they trample under foot the
rights of atheists and cultists alike by publicly recognizing a holiday
which has such a pro-Christian sentiment! And to think that they are
PAYING employees for that day of vacation in honor of the Lord of Lords!
And, mind you, this day of vacation in honor of the birth of God's only
begotten Son comes just after these same government agencies took a day
of vacation for none other than... THANKSGIVING! Now, they can call it
a generic "Thanksgiving" all they want, but we know the truth: It's an
insidious attempt to recognize monotheism by the government.
Intolerable according to the conventional misinterpretations of the
We tell schoolchildren that teacher-led prayer in school is
unconstitutional and then we turn around and what? We give them not one
but MANY days off in favor of a holiday season which celebrates the
birth of their Lord and Savior! What kind of hypocrisy is this? If we
continue to do this, then our children might actually think that there
is something IMPORTANT about the Christian faith. They might actually
be more inclined to BELIEVE it. Such government-assisted indoctrination
could lead to children growing up and actually OBEYING Christian
virtues: sexual morality, a work ethic, respect for human life, giving,
caring, diligence, good language, hospitality, etc. Needless to say,
the government should certainly not be subsidizing such godly living.
Just think about it, how will all of those youngsters whose 17th (or
16th) birthdays coincidentally fall on December 25 be able to go get
their driver's licenses? They can't! This is because those government
officials are taking it easy on a day meant to celebrate the birth of
God in the flesh. What about those folks who want to pick up a new
Social Security card on that day? They can't. Those government
employees are instead singing Christmas Carols and violating an
Unconstitutional principle that has suddenly become Constitutional.
Where is the ACLU waving the precious clause of the First Amendment and
quoting its historical revisionists? Where is the "Reverend" Barry Lynn
when you need him? Where's the Americans United For the Promotion Of
Something That's Not In The Constitution - excuse me... Americans United
For the Separation of Church and State? Where are the American
Atheists? Are they still too busy suing the city of Zion, IL because
the municipality had a cross on its flag to not take up this
significantly greater cause?
Please, by all means, send all the money stamped with "In God We Trust"
that you can to one or more of the above named organizations to fight
this wretched abuse and wicked wielding of governmental excess!
And Merry Christmas!
