It is the time of year, again, when we should all try to put our differences aside and come together as Americans. Of course, with the political climate in our country today this is not always an easy thing to do, but our Christian values should make it possible. You know, 'Good Will Towards Men', and all that...come on, give it a try!
Our political differences can just go 'on hold' until after the New Year. Let's just all concentrate on the joys of Christmas, the miracle of the birth of Christ, and all that follows. Enjoy!
This may be easier said than done. What do we do with the 'secular progressives'? They just don't believe as we do, and they don't want to hear about Christmas and baby Jesus, and nativity scenes and such. And, it is their right not to believe, if that is how they truly feel. And, we should never try to impose our collective wills on them as they do to us. Y'all know how that makes us feel! And, we should always try to respect their feelings even though they have no respect for ours. So, what to do?
You may possibly have guessed by now. I do have an idea (not original, but an idea)! Let's approach the leaders of the secular progressive movement with an outpouring of love. Let's share with them how important and sacred Christmas is to us, so that they may better understand our feelings, and, just maybe, it will help them to show respect for us in return.
You are probably asking, "So, just who are these leaders of the secular progressive movement in our country? And, how do we show them this great outpouring of love?"
The first answer would be: The American Civil Liberties Union.
The second answer would be: Let every Christian in this country send them a Christmas Card.
I personally think that if the ACLU were to receive several million Christmas cards from caring folks like us between now and Christmas, they would have to be greatly moved by it all. Overwhelmed. Probably beyond belief (so to speak)!
So, if you like this idea, please feel free to forward this to as many people as possible, and let's get the ball rolling. Merry Christmas!
