TWAS THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Twas the month before Christmas

When all through our land,

Not a Christian was praying

Nor taking a stand.

Why the PC Police had taken away

The reason for Christmas - no one could say.

The children were told by their schools not to sing

About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.

It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say

December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.

Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit

Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!

CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod

Something was changing, something quite odd!

Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa

In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.

As Targets were hanging their trees upside down

At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.

At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears

You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.

Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty

Are words that were used to intimidate me.

Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen

On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !

At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter

To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.

And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith

Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace

The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded

The reason for the season, stopped before it started.

So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'

Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.

Choose your words carefully, choose what you say

Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS,

not Happy Holiday !

Please, all Christians join together and

wish everyone you meet

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
 
 
this was sent to me and I wanted to share this with you.  If only we could go back to the good ole days as they say, we would not even be seeing such stuff or hearing many comments on the subject.

Barbara,

Lots of people here still say Merry Christmas! There is also lots of talk about the real reason for the season in schools.....Sunday schools that is.

I think there are so many religions celebrated in America today that the public schools are not the ones to be teaching our kids about religion. I did not want my child to believe that Jesus was not our savior, so I did not send him to a synagogue, and sent him to Sunday school at Christ Church United Methodist instead. Religion should be taught in the religious venue of your choice, and not in public schools.

That said, I do believe that parents should either teach their children at home, or bring them to the church, temple, mosque, mountaintop or wherever they worship, and educate them in their beliefs.

Stepping down from my soapbox now..... Just in time to wish you a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
