Christmas vs. The Holidays

Thanks to Mike for this great picture. These shirts believe it or not are for sale (along with others like it). You can pick them up at: If you can't read the caption on the shirt it says: "Christmas is not a 'Holiday', It's God's Birthday". While I agree with main idea here for the most part I wonder what the point of the shirt is. A quote from the website: "Christmas Is Under Attack - Now we're fighting back...and you can too." I have a hard time with this approach. Also take a look at this article in the San Francisco Gate. This artical is taking a look at a "campaign" waging war against those whe refuse to use the words "Merry Christmas". And who is at the helm? None other than Mr. Jerry Falwell. Is this how we spread the good news? Is it really good news anymore? I'd love to hear all of your thoughts on this. At least this is some food for thought as we head into the holidays. There seems to be a lot of people in need of love and hope and peace during this time and I think our energy could be better spent spreading that. How can we bring that?
