There is no war on Christmas. Never was. The whole thing is a myth perpetuated by the extremists on the far right. (Note, also, that these are the same people who scream that they have the right to say and do whatever they want in the name of free speech, even if what they are saying is really hate speech (remember Clint McCance?) and everyone just needs to get over it).
In that vein, here’s my Federally protected Free Speech opinion on the non-existent War on Christmas.
IT DOES NOT EXIST.
The reason? No one gives a flying fuck how you celebrate this season. If you want to believe that a god-who-turned-himself- into-a-man-and-was-his-own-father is responsible for the season, then you have an extremely poor grasp of your own religion.
As a liberal, I really don’t give a FUCK how you celebrate anything, much less this over-commercialized “holiday.” That’s the point of being a liberal: everyone’s way is fine, so long as it doesn’t infringe on anyone else’s way.
Being forced to hear “Jesus is the reason for the season,” and having your shitty religion forced down my throat even more than normal infringes on my right to not hear it.
So SHUT THE FUCK UP!
So go enjoy the holiday season. And keep your religion to yourself.
