Yes, "Merry Christmas" Matters

Posted: Dec 14, 2009 10:00 AM
My Townhall column is up, discussing the President's decision to eliminate any religious element from the annual White House Christmas card.

Of course, it's not essential that the word "Christmas" appears on the card.  But eliminating all traces of any religion from it springs from some politically correct but perhaps misplaced assumptions.  What' s more, when America's leader makes a conscious decision to transform the Christmas season into nothing but a great big "happy holidays" opportunity -- thereby swapping religiosity for some undefined civic "faith" --  it's bad for the country.  Read the column to find out why.
