Oh NO! More Defeats!

Hot on the heels of our setback in Colorado, some group named the Coalition to Stop Christmas has declared War on Christmas as We Know It! 'Sandra Claus' writes:

The Coalition to Stop Christmas is proud to announce the launch of their new website, www.stopxmas.com, which is dedicated to stopping Christmas as we know it. The Coalition to Stop Christmas has been founded for the purpose of eliminating the commercial aspect of the holiday, and returning it to its roots, which was originally a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

StopXmas.com features stories, opinion, and history of the holiday, and will also invite Christians to take its Christmas Challenge, which is designed to solidify one's faith. In short, the StopXMas website is a reality check for those who believe Christmas is to be spent shopping, harassing store managers and clerks, and breaking the family budget on useless gifts and utility bills.

They go straight to the Naughty List without passing Go and without collecting $200!!

Meanwhile, in Chicago, municipal officials want to symbolically remove the 'Christ' from their annual Christkindlmarket. That would make it the annual 'kindlmarket'. Does that make sense? No.
CHICAGO - A public Christmas festival is no place for the Christmas story, the city says. Officials have asked organizers of a downtown Christmas festival, the German Christkindlmarket, to reconsider using a movie studio as a sponsor because it is worried ads for its film "The Nativity Story" might offend non-Christians.
Sure, those officials get all namby-pamby and mealy-mouthed about the issue, saying it has nothing to do with Christ at all, but we know better!
"Our guidance was that this very prominently placed advertisement would not only be insensitive to the many people of different faiths who come to enjoy the
market for its food and unique gifts, but also it would be contrary to acceptable advertising standards suggested to the many festivals holding events on Daley Plaza," Jim Law, executive director of the [Mayor's Office of Special Events], said in a statement.
Right Jim. And would you be a pinko commie atheist by any chance?! You go right onto the Naughty List!!
