I’m sure I’m not the only one to see people afraid to use the word “Christmas” in fear they might offend someone – There are many religions in the world and many holidays and religious holidays, and here and now it is Christmas time in many countries, and that deserves respect and acknowledgement – Yet in today’s world, I see people tiptoeing in pointless shame and nonsensical politically induced guilt as though being Christian in a Christian country is a bad thing, all to appease the activists in our midst (yes, those same people who despise humanity in all it’s forms and see us as a blight upon the Earth and who, interestingly enough, do not believe in God anyway – That’s right, Political Correctness has become a tool of Socialism and God is on the hit-list).
There is no other religion anywhere in the world where its followers have been forced into a position where many are afraid to speak of their own faith to their own fellow-believers in their own-religion countries. Respecting other religions is a wonderful thing, but do not denigrate your own to “prove” your respect for others, for there is no respect at all if you do not include your own in the equation.
Our world is a strange place at the moment where we are challenged on every level of our being, and much of what is going on is hidden beneath a charade of benign intent. We have already lost so much, giving away – bit by bit – much of our freedom and autonomy.
Please don’t let any voice or authority rob you of Christmas, for it is not just the Celebration they want to take from us, but the strength behind it. Stand up for your values or you will lose them, because when you surrender a little bit, you will surrender a little bit more and a little bit more again. This has already been going on for years – Where does it stop? It stops when we say it does.
I love every aspect of Christmas. Loving one thing doesn’t make me anti-anything else.
I say again, I love Christmas. I love the symbolism – all of it – the tree and the lights and the feasting and the giving of gifts. Best of all, I love the MEANING of Christmas and the Celebration of the Birth of Christ.
I, for one, am not afraid to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas.
Have a wonderful day, everyone, whether you are Christian or not, good tidings to you all. 😀
Peace and Blessings,
😀 Hi Laura! Thank you! (Merry Christmas to you.)
