December has rolled around and, as usual, FOX News has declared war on Yule and Hanukkah by claiming that there is some kind of War on Christmas. Of course, we all know who is behind the War on Christmas- Pro-Choice and Pro-Gay people. Well, that is according to Bill O’Reilly and Bernard McGuirk.
Of course, O’Reilly believes that Christianity is not an actual religion despite his friend Jon Stewart giving a few convincing reasons why it is. O’Reilly believes that Christianity is a philosophy while ignoring the fact that philosophers do not require that people come to great big buildings in order to pray to a God or deity central to the core beliefs.
Here they are, in fact:
MCGUIRK: The war on Christmas is very, very real, and if you ask me, in addition to some grouchy misanthropic heathen atheists it has to do — at the root of it — with two things — abortion and the gay rights agenda, because Christianity is against those things. It’s subtle but that’s why it’s so pronounced in recent years.
O’REILLY: Hundred percent agree. I absolutely agree 100 percent that the diminishment of Christianity is the target and Christmas is the vehicle because the secularists know the opposition to their agenda (legalized drugs is in that as well) comes primarily from the Judeo-Christian traditionalist people.
Never mind the fact that many Christians are pro-choice and pro-gay. In fact, the majority of Catholics actually believe in giving women the right to choose what happens with their bodies during pregnancy and are pro-gay rights. In fact, most Catholics in the United States stand in opposition to their clergy, and this says nothing for the denominations of Christianity where women’s rights and gay rights are huge parts of the faith like Presbyterians, Lutherans, Congregationalists, Episcopalians, Methodists, etc.
Furthermore, not all Liberals are against Christmas, but want governments to acknowledge other holidays as well. This means putting up displays for holidays related to the major religions of the nation. Unfortunately, many Christians like O’Reilly would rather have a stake put through their hearts than allow Jewish, Muslim, Pagan, Hindu and Buddhist decorations to go up anywhere near their government centers.
