'Tis the season - to be silly! I think I'll join the fray - and offend everybody! This was my response to a righty pal who sent me the latest gooflogalnatity from the hard-right wing. (Go straight down Bush Ave. & make a hard right). His forwarded e-missive pertained to saying "Merry Christmas" and how that evil LIBERAL cabel is robbing us of the right to say Merry Christmas - and I've received a bunch of those lately. Herewith (I never get a chance to say that word in conversation) my reply:
Aw geez - this is the newest right wing waste of time. My cards say Merry Christmas. Those I send to Jewish friends say Happy Holiday (but they're still Christmas cards). I don't know any Druids who kind of originated the winter holiday we celebrate as Christ's birthday. It made sense I might add - since using an established pagan holiday and making it a Christian holiday prevented any back sliding on the part of early Christians who still loved that winter solstice holiday.
Now I'm afraid to say "Merry Christmas" in public for fear people will think I'm a follower of Bill O'Reilly instead of Christ. Y'know - O'Reilly really does think he's the saviour - (that's lower case).
