“Fox & Friends” dedicated a segment to the “War on Christmas” this morning, going so far as to interview Santa Claus himself about the scourge that is “Happy Holidays.”

“Santa, I understand that you don’t want to say Happy Holidays, why?” Steve Doocy asked as the first question.

Santa epitomizes the crass commercialization of the holiday!

He should be public enemy #1 in the "War on Christmas" at FOX!

Happy Holidays!

Condemnation of Christmas was prevalent among the 17th century English Puritans and Dutch Calvinists who banned the holiday as either pagan or Roman Catholic. The American colonies established by these groups reflected this view. Tolerance for Christmas increased after the Restoration but the Puritan opposition to the holiday persisted in New England for almost two centuries.

Poor persecuted Christians. My son only spent 2 1/2 hours at a public school learning about Jesus this week. Such a shame they didn't have more time to advance their cause to kindergarteners.

Wonder what a lot of people would say if they taught the kids about Allah, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or secular celebrations?

Probably wouldn't get a warm reception I'm guessing...

I wouldn't have a problem with it.

Religion is a personal choice that should happen in the home first and for most.

School should be about learning.

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
