The Next Salvo in the War On Christmas

Who knew that George and Laura Bush were on our side (for the second straight year) when it comes to the war on Christmas. Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, John Gibson and Bill O'Reilly all claim that anyone who says Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas is nothing but a dirty secularist/atheist/satan-worshipper. Well, it looks like the Bushes for a second year are dirty secularists/atheists/satan-worshippers. For their "Holiday" card makes no mention of Christmas. Thanks go out to Americans United for pointing this out.

I expect the outrage from O'Reilly and Co at Fox News any moment now. Not to mention the Christian Right's own condemnation of the secularism of the Bushes and how they are not "true" Christians for the capital sin of recognizing other's rights to religious expression.

Now if the President could just take this idea and apply it to his Office of Faith-Based Proselytization. (Based on this NYT article.) Thanks Go Out to Crooks & Liars.

Well, this atheist has this to say to all:
Have a Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas if you celebrate it (as I do).

I've always wondered, if these people hate "Happy holidays" so much, how about telling them "Happy Hannukah" or "Happy Kwanzaa". Then they'll know what it's like to be a non-Christian around Christmas time.
