It’s the most wonderful time of the year – or not. The holiday season means something or nothing to many people. For the Religious Right, ‘tis the season for resurrecting the bogus “War on Christmas.”
After years of flap about the fictional “War on Christmas,” an unexpected source finally spoke out against this phony issue: a Catholic priest who works for the Fox News Channel.
During a recent segment of “Fox and Friends,” the Rev. Jonathan Morris criticized those who put their focus into being offended about the perceived repression of Christmas rather than actually celebrating the holiday.
It’s the first day of December, which means Christmas is coming up soon – and you know what that means: Yep, it’s time for the Religious Right and its allies to celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace by lying about our public schools.
The tiresome pattern works like this: Someone tells a wild story about Christmas being banned in a public school. Religious Right legal groups get outraged. The Fox News Channel reports it without bothering to check if it’s true. Far-right bloggers have a field day.
