“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.

public schools are the only reason I know anything about any of those holiday's... so i'm not sure what the issue is


one way or the other, the war on Christmas is fabricated by the victims anyway... the only people i see mentioning it are the ones demanding that "Christ needs to be kept in Christmas"

Had a very broad overview of various world religions while in elementary school.

As long as teachers take an even handed approach and don't try and convert anyone it can be rather enlightening.

I agree completely... and it's the question I ask people (mainly relatives of mine) when they complain about the schools not teaching the "real meaning of christmas"...

If they teach about Christmas, what are you gonna say when they teach about other religions?

That usually doesn't get a warm reception from them...

They'd be freaking out. They've talked a little about dreidels at school concerning Hanukkah but when I picked him up from school the other day he said they spent the whole morning watching movies about Jesus and making angels etc.

edit: We don't mind our kid learning about religions, if we did we'd be discussing this with the teacher or principle. However I'm in the class a lot and can tell you it's not even handed at all.
