Holidays and Political Correctness

We’re not sure if there is any other time during the year that stimulates the politically correct (P.C.) crowd more than the holiday season. We believe it is because of the multicultural nation we live in here in the United States; which brings up a great debate point on whether or not multiculturalism as a way of life works, and who’s who in the pecking order.

As you know we do our due-diligence (blog crawl) around the blogosphere on a regular basis. We thought we’d wait until about ten-days before the celebration of Christ’s birth to begin to reveal some of our findings. Please beware some of these are just ugly; others, are elaborately planned schemes, and finally the egregious acts of organizations and government. We’d like to share with you the following from Seeing Red AZ: (Link here)

This absurdity is the advisory letter sent out by the Tennessee ACLU warning all 137 public school district superintendents across the state of the importance of “inclusivity at the holidays.” The radical American Civil Liberties Union* (Read the linked NRO article) asserts that the greeting of “Merry Christmas” is tantamount to religious indoctrination, and only the inclusive words “Happy Holidays” and secular symbols are appropriate at this time of year. How do you feel about that?

Well if saying “Merry Christmas” to someone is teaching belief, doctrine, or ideology thoroughly and systematically, especially with the goal of discouraging independent thought or the acceptance of other opinions; moreover, if the desired result of one’s indoctrination is programming, propaganda, and teaching – then saying “Merry Christmas” is indoctrination.

However, how many of us across the spectrum of religious beliefs are trying to indoctrinate someone to Christianity saying simply, Merry Christmas? This past year we were encouraged to say to our Muslim friends, “Happy Ramadan” however, we did not know if that was acceptable, and therefore we did not.

Zareena Grewal, a professor of American and religious studies at Yale, likened these Muslims to Islam’s version of Christmas Christians. During the month, mosques teem with congregants, some of whom haven’t been there since the previous Ramadan.

Grewal, who grew up in the United States but has lived across the Middle East and Pakistan, said most Muslims worldwide probably don’t pray five times a day but wouldn’t think of spurning Ramadan. The repentant quality of the month has made it the one act of worship they observe, she said, and in Muslim countries or communities where everyone is fasting, not doing so can paint one as an outcast. “If you’re not fasting you’re just seen as a buzz kill, you’re bringing down the mood, this is the holiday season,” she said (For more please see this article).

In a short but powerful blog post, In a PC World, Love Suffers, Art the author imbues a person who is born to love. Yet, how sickening can a society become when every decent loving human being is a suspected pedophile? Art’s article illustrates just how stuck on stupid some people can be. Does saying “Merry Christmas” to someone even indicate religion? For one who knows nothing of Christ, there is not an image on this page that remotely suggest religion!

The more suggestions about who to include and their stories the more we realize how sick and tired a nation is becoming being force fed rubbish they don’t want to eat. We will bring more stories; however, can anyone see the dismantling of a culture by demanding it be politically correct?
