One of my favorite verses in the Bible says that David ran towards the giant. He was not sheepish or fearful. While the greatest of warriors ran from the giant, the little shepherd boy ran directly towards the giant, certain that God would give him victory. (1 Samuel 17:48)
There is a message there for Christians. It is time to run directly towards this evil giant called political correctness. It is time to slay political correctness and save the freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution for all Americans.
Christians have been bullied in recent years by groups that loathe them. Those groups are like the proverbial bully who controls the schoolyard and makes life miserable for everyone he meets. It is time for Christians to become emboldened, certain that the majority of Americans stand behind them. As we saw with the millions who supported Chick-fil-a or the more recent millions who supported Phil Robertson, the trends that threaten freedom of speech, freedom of religion and individual rights are popular only among a small minority.
The fact that a minority can take away the rights and freedoms of the majority cannot stand. It is time to run towards the giant and end its reign. Political correctness has been allowed to run amok and destroy the lives of good Americans and the rights that were established with the founding of America. All freedom-loving people, whether practicing Christians or not, must save America from the bully now.
Now that we are in mid-November, the retailers and etailers are putting their Christmas shopping gift selections out. But, most do not mention Christmas. Now, because of political correctness, it is instead “holiday gifts.” It is as if Christmas disappeared and was replaced by some generic, meaningless holiday.
About 20% of Americans have no stated religious affiliation and only a few percent are die-in-the-wool Atheists. Some very small percentages are Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists. The majority of Americans are the same faith as our Founders and the majority celebrate a holiday in late December called Christmas. It’s always been Christmas and it has always been celebrated for one reason. The first six letters in the name of the holiday give it away.
Let’s cut the PC insanity. The holiday we have always celebrated in America on December 25th is about the birth of Christ. It is not about anything else. Most Jews are not even offended by Christmas or the celebration of it. It is a tiny minority of Christian-hating Atheists who are acting like the tail wagging the dog. Along with the PC police, they have threatened retailers across this great nation so that those retailers have eliminated the word Christmas from just about everything………….showing disrespect and utter contempt for the majority who believe in Christ and celebrate His birth.
So, in the weeks ahead, smile and say Merry Christmas to every person you pass. Say it to every retail employee and say it to the 40% of liberals who never attend church services. It’s Christmas, this is America and changing either is not progress, it’s stupidity and it serves no useful purpose.
