Wishing You a Merry Christmas

I hope nobody listening to this program is intimidated from wishing everyone you see a Merry Christmas. I don't want anybody to wish me a Merry Multicultural, Inclusive, Secular, Seasonal Holiday. The big majority of Americans are Christians who know Whose birthday is celebrated on Christmas. An estimated 96% of Americans celebrate Christmas, not Kwanza or Diwali or any other strange variation. According to a Rasmussen poll, when shopping 92% of Americans like to say Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays. In another Rasmussen survey, 76% of Americans say it's okay to display religious symbols, such as Nativity scenes and menorahs, in public settings; only 11% disagree. 83% believe public schools should celebrate religious holidays.

Nevertheless, we are suffering a tremendous offensive by the secularists against Christians, particularly in the courts where they seek out supremacist judges who want to rewrite the Constitution, and in schools where they find leftwingers who agree with them. The secularists file lawsuits against "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance and against Ten Commandments monuments, and against schools that have Christmas holidays, Christmas trees, and Christmas carols (even if they are instrumental only, without words),

President Obama seems to be part of the effort. Speaking in Turkey last year, he said "Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, and a nation of nonbelievers." No, Obama is wrong. America is primarily a nation of people who demand the right to say Merry Christmas. After all, Christmas is a national holiday. Merry Christmas is more than symbolic. It's a reminder of who we are and where our institutions came from. We can't let anybody take it away . Merry Christmas to all.
