Sentence on humbug definition



It’s that time of year again, when a segment of the population (for example, Bill O’Reilly) starts whining that the rest of us, Christian and non-Christian alike, have declared a war on Christmas. This started a few years ago when some retailers decided not to wish every customer (who might or might not celebrate Christmas) a merry Christmas regardless of whether every customer cared to be wished a merry Christmas. War on Christmas? I like Christmas as much as the next person, but to these people, who obviously don’t get out much and don’t know what REALLY goes on in this country, I say, war on Christmas? Bah! Humbug!

If you must label something a war, then I would say that there’s a segment of the Christian population who is declaring war on the non-Chirstmas population—-Christians who aren’t consumed by Christmas, Jews, Muslims, etc. Although these Christians like to defend their right to preferential treatment in this country by parroting the empty sentence, This is a Christian country , I say, Guess again .

This is a country with a lot of Christians. This is NOT a Christian country. There is a difference. Although in the last 8 years, extreme right-wing conservative Christians have tried, with some assistance, to convince us that this is a Christian country and have tried to make this a Christian country, the fact remains: we are a nation of all religions, all colors, all beliefs, and many of the people who settled this country did so in order, we are taught in school, to flee religious persecution or oppression. While some of the founding fathers were Christians, they provided that religion should not be forced upon us by our government by establishing the separation of church and state.

We are forced to watch while our country is taken over by ONE DAY that, for some reason, has been turned into an entire SEASON. Why SHOULD I have to be accosted by “merry christmas” every time I go into a store? And what about the people who are alone for the holidays and don’t want to be reminded of how lonely they are by hearing someone chirp “merry christmas” with every “paper or plastic”?

I could go on, but I won’t. The whole war on christmas thing is a joke. You want to see war? Go to Iraq or Afghanistan or Africa, or go to the inner-city streets and watch people suffering there. But don’t tell me that there’s a damn war on Christmas.

If it’s not too much to ask, let’s just leave Christmas alone and concentrate on the real crises facing this country.
