Isn't It Ironic? Won't He Think?

Just can't let this one go...

Is it only me, or is this more than ironic? We've been beaten about the head with pat Christian slogans by crabby God Warriors: "He's the reason for the season" and "Don't take Christ out of Christmas!". They start a national flapdoodle by boycotting their darling Wal*Mart for saying "Happy Holidays" rather than "Merry Christmas". They even have scores of de rigeur rubber wristbands made up for their cause (see my 12.11 post). Yet, the mega-evangelical churches are closed on Christmas! Oh, but it's true!

You'd think that this year would be the Bible-belters dream! Jesus's birthday on a Sunday! They sure could show the rest of the heathens how a real Christian Christmas is done! They could gather in their churches, sing some hymns real loud, wave their hands in the air, exalt and all that--really get their merry on. They could really bask in the glow of the reason for the season. They would definitely have Christ right there, smack dab in the middle of Christmas, for sure. But no. Instead, they are closing so that members can be at home, like the rest of the pagans, celebrating with their families.

Boy, that sure sounds like the way most of the rest of the non-evangelical Christian world will be celebrating Christmas, doesn't it? Kind of a letdown, I think.

Boy, those evangelicals. They sure made a big deal out of nothin'. Merry Xmas to them.

    Sheesh, I remember when Christmas mass was twice as long if it fell on a Sunday!

    I had no idea that some Evangelicals took the day off. That is weird.

    Oop, I have to run there's been another image of Jesus sighting and their putting on the nightly news! Go figure. I wonder how long they've held on to that footage.

  2. Well done! I do remember this big fuss and the "War On Christmas". Coincidentally, I had just started blogging at around this time, and wrote a post about it. :) I got the same number of comments as you! 1!

  3. I saw your post! I think these Xians need to pick their battles a little better in general. Or just shut the hell up...that would be preferable.
