Movie critic Neal Gabler annihilates the "war on Christmas" argument advanced by Fox News Watch hack Eric Burns, who is clearly not prepared for argument with sentient life. Burns walks into the ambush with "if I can just give three examples right now in different parts of the country" and Gabler whacks him over the head with "three incidents of chicken pox doesn't make an epidemic." Shame you almost couldn't hear it over Burns "hanging back," by which he must mean "shouting."
But now I'm going to bring some more thunder.
If you're really that threatened by someone saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas," or whatever else, I got three words for you, and I'll say them slow:
You live in a country with other people in it. You live in a country with people who think and worship differently than you do. Even your personal Lord and Savior, George W. Bush, agrees with me that this is a good thing. You do remember from history class that many of the folks who settled in America were running from religious persecution elsewhere? Actual religious persecution, the kind that got you imprisoned or maimed or killed, and not the "persecution" where you don't hear only the things you want to hear all the time?
The beauty of America is that so many disparate people have come here to dream, and have stayed to forge bonds across differences. If that's too tough for your obviously slender belief in God, then move to some dictatorship which would lend steel to your soul. America is not your damn enabler.
