Merry Christmas! But, Don't Tell Anyone

by Rita Etter

The View’s Barbara Walters is upset. Why? Well, it seems she received a Christmas Card from the President and First Lady that included a small passage from the Book of Nehemiah in the Old Testament. To be fair, Barbara Walters is Jewish. However, a card from Elton John that included an angel, which is a religious symbol, was not seen as offensive to her.
The naysayers will spout the usual myth of “separation of church and state”, however, there is no other reason to send a Christmas card at this time of year except to celebrate Christmas. Barbara also questions the idea that Atheists and Agnostics may be receiving the Christmas Card as well and will be upset like Barbara. First of all why would an Atheist be upset receiving a card that mentions the name of someone that do not believe in anyway?
Perhaps if the mere mention of God is so offensive to Barbara, she should just tear the card up. I mean it is the season to be jolly.

My Commentary
The above is from Tennessean blogger Ritta Etter. I have lampooned the Christian Warrior "Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday" counters. However, there are some nuts on the other side who seem to enjoy getting offended if someone wishes them "Merry Christmas". Right on Rita! I can't say it better, except to add: Barbara Walters, Merry Christmas and if you don't love Jesus you can go to hell!
