This past week I noted that an elementary school in Wisconsin was going to sing something called Cold in the Night instead of Silent Night at their “Holiday” program. The school has since reversed itself, thanks to public and legal pressure. The children will be allowed to sing the world’s best known Christmas carol.
But the war on Christmas still rages in other quarters. Officials with public housing have banned residents from singing Christmas carols (Broken link, active December 15, 2005) or decorating their doors with religious themes this year in at least two different states. World Net Daily asserts it is not just Christmas that is under attack, but Christianity. Really, it is Jesus Christ: He is the root of both Christmas and Christianity.
Mike Adams suggests the appropriate response, to my mind.
