76 Percent of America Thinks Christmas Should Be About Jesus

This is a preposterous poll. The fact that more Americans think it should be about Jesus than Santa, who represents materialism at its core, is not an endorsement of the Christian conception of Christmas. If you polled the question, "Which should Christmas be more about, Jesus or peace and love for all mankind?" then I'm sure you would get just about the same stat in the opposite direction. But don't tell the right. They love to cite polls that fit their narrative. It's like the way Fox gets its news these days. Just poll Republicans, and whatever they think becomes the "truth."

So Fox should be more open-minded and fair like MSNBC and their anchors like Al Sharpton?

Because I mentioned either of those at any point...

Herman, those on the right cling to a binary perspective of the world--either good or evil, black or white, socialist or capitalist, you're either with us or against us--no in between. Is it so hard to believe that I might dismiss the objectivity of MSNBC as easily as I would Fox News. But at least they use a synonym of "progressive" in their slogan, rather than the moniker of "fair and balanced," which we all know is anything but.

Why not address the substance of my concerns, rather than relying on empty arguments against straw man Democrats who often don't exist outside of the left-wing media.

Rasmussen Reports is out with some data sure to make anti-Christmas heads spin. The vast majority of Americans believe Christmas should be focused on Jesus, not Santa.

Should Christmas be more about Jesus Christ or Santa Claus? It may seem hard to tell looking at the popular culture, but Americans overwhelmingly think the emphasis should be on Jesus.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 76% of American Adults believe Christmas should be more about Jesus. Only 14% think it should be more about Santa, but another 10% are not sure.
