Christmas is all done with for another year, most of us have taken down the trees, the various Christmas displays in courthouses and public libraries are packed away for next year, and the ACLU now has to look for other things in our culture to attack.
Talk about The Grinch Of Christmas, every December the ACLU’s operatives run around the country looking for public displays of Christianity that celebrate Christmas so they can launch lawsuits attacking the displays. Often as not, the displays come down rather than deal with an expensive lawsuit, and the ACLU has won another little victory.
We’re all so used to hearing about ACLU attacks on Christianity that we don’t even pay much attention anymore. When public schools allow Christian students to have private, on-campus prayer meetings, the ACLU has fits of epic proportions, yet when Muslims openly demand special Muslm-Only washbasins, Islamic classes, prayer rooms and special dress codes, the ACLU is always somewhere else.
Now we have New Year’s celebrations coming up and I fear greatly for Father Time and the New Year Baby, since both are also symbols of our decadent, non-Islamic culture. How the ACLU must hate them. Then of course, there’s the Easter Bunny, which is associated with Christianity’s Resurrection of Christ and which the ACLU has been attacking for years already, and St. Valentines Day, being another Christian celebration, can’t be far behind as Muslims are now starting to attack it as being “decadent Western vulgarity”.
About the only one we have left that seems safe from the ACLU is Halloween, which is a celebration of Pagan beliefs. Paganism is swell with the ACLU, in fact they don’t seem to mind Buddhism and other non-Christian faiths as long as they aren’t Christian or Jewish. Any form of public Hanukka display, Star of David and menorahs is also attacked with vigor, of course.
Who wants to bet that those same hypocrite lawyers send Christmas cards and give out presents while trying to ruin it for the rest of us?
The presence of the ACLU at Christmas time is a lot like having a dead skunk under the house while you’re trying to enjoy Christmas dinner.
