The Politically Correct Silliness of the “Holiday Tree”

The politically correct silliness of the “holiday tree” and all the other attempts to neutralize Christmas here in America, are causing quite a stir. Some deny that there is any attempt to remove Christ from Christmas… This blogger has memories of many Christmases, there’s a conscious effort to undermine the Christian Holiday. It’s just a seasonal attack on Christianity, it goes on all year.

As much as most American Christians don’t like it, as much as it should be resisted, it is mere child’s play in comparison to what others are battling.

Christmas is a time of celebration, a time to remember the birth of the Son of God, the Savior of the world, the only Hope for mankind.

Christmas isn’t always a time of “Peace on Earth, goodwill toward men. ”

In an excellent and enlightening article by Nina Shea, director of Freedom House's Center for Religious Freedom, Nina reveals how other Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Her article is titled “The Real War on Christmas” it was posted on National Review Online.

Here’s an excerpt;

“In Saudi Arabia, Christians, a large percentage of the foreign workers making up a quarter of the population, will not be able to find any churches whatsoever to worship in this Christmas — churches are forbidden. Dozens of those who pray together in private houses were arrested and jailed earlier this year. This fanatically intolerant kingdom even forbids Muslims, under threat of death, to wish a Christian "Happy Holidays," much less "Merry Christmas."

And another;

“Christians in Pakistan will be wise to keep their Christmas celebrations low-key this year. One of them, Yousaf Masih, a 60-year-old illiterate janitor from northwestern Pakistan, is among those under arrest for "blasphemy" because he allegedly burned a Koran. As Paul Marshall of the Center for Religious Freedom recounted, three weeks ago in Sangala Hill, after word of his case got out, mobs destroyed three churches, a convent, a Christian school, and Christian homes. Last week a militant mob rallied to demand Masih's public hanging and the eradication of the entire Christian community there.”

We want to express out appreciation to Nina Shea and the National Review Online for exposing the perils expressing ones faith in the Christ of Christmas.

Take the time this Christmas to remember and pray for those Christians that may be paying a greater price to celebrate Christmas.

Please PRAY for the Persecuted Church

God Bless You and God Bless America
