This post was on the "Sound Off" section of CNN, by the contributing author Roland Martin. All I can say is wow, and amen. This statement is a great stab at the idiocy of political correctness. And it's given by a passionate Christian black male, a writer/journalist for CNN.
What have we done to Christmas???
My favorite part of the article:
"I know that may sound strident, but it's true. We spend an inordinate amount of time focused on shopping and buying gifts, but really, what does any of this have to do with the birth of Jesus? We have families all over the nation killing themselves to buy a tree they can't afford, running up their credit to buy toys and other gifts, all in an effort to make someone else happy."
"Parents, don't be so consumed with the notion that your children will have a terrible Christmas because the tree isn't overflowing with gifts. The true love that you show them is more important than anything else."
I hereby call the forum for discussion open.
