Liberty Counsel Launches Annual War On Xmas

Via press release:

Liberty Counsel has launched its fifteenth annual Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign. The campaign educates, and if necessary litigates, to make sure that Christmas and Christian themes are not censored. Liberty Counsel has been actively monitoring cases across the country where there is intimidation by officials and groups to remove the celebration of Christmas in public and private sectors.

These threats include atheist groups seeking to ban Nativity scenes from public property, senior living centers that prohibit residents from singing Christmas carols, public schools that ban students from wearing the Christmas colors of red and green, school officials who censor religious words from Christmas carols and retailers which profit from Christmas while pretending it does not exist. Liberty Counsel has successfully educated and reversed these anti-Christmas actions in all of these situations.

Liberty Counsel’s annual “Naughty Or Nice” list of retailers to boycott will be issued soon.

      They love me.

    • LaChatSayWha

      Exactly. They wholeheartedly participate in the tawdry commercialization of their so-called spiritual season. They can fuck on off with the complaints about the well-deserved consequences of their own actions.

      • LaChatSayWha

        Also, they just love this packaged and propagandized β€œWar on Xmas” because they love having an authority figure encourage them to loudly express their racism by cursing non-Xtian holiday traditions. Just like with Dump45, it’s got nothing to do with economic anxiety or spirituality and everything to do with Bull Connor-style racism.

      I always find it ironic that the pro-Xmas jihadis only started aggressively pursuing their war on everyone but themselves after they participated wholeheartedly in killing off whatever was spiritual about the holiday by buying the loads and loads of tatty commercial tripe the corporations spewed out to squeeze the last ounce of filthy lucre out of willing consumers.

      Damn, that was a long sentence. Shorter version: these hoes killed their own damn special spiritual season by buying billions and billions of Elves on the Shelves, etc. while engaging in swinish shopping orgies on what used to be days of rest & reflection. So to them I wish a Happy Kwanzaa & Solstice, hypocrites!

    Alright, listen up here! This year we deploy as usual but we also have a new target. We have pretty much defeated Christmas on every front except one: basic cable. Are you aware that the Hallmark Channel plays Christmas movies pretty much year round? Because it’s never not a time to send that special someone that special Christmas card, emblazoned with sparkly fake snow and perhaps with piezoelectric Christmas Carolers.
    Well, this year it ends. From now on “A Hallmark Christmas” will be “A Hallmark Any Old Lame Excuse to Sell Cards Covered With Glitter Holiday”! Now get out there and piss in a few Salvation Army bowls, deface some Bill O’Reilly posters and whatever you do, make sure that the word “Christmas” (ugh!) never passes the lips of any Kindergarteners in music class.

    • BearEyes

      • PickyPecker

        LOL. Last year, I purposely sought out THE most obnoxious glitter greeting cards to send out. They were ‘crunchy’ with glitter in their lovely envelopes. Some recipiants are still reporting they are finding gold glitter here and there. #WINNINGTHEWARONCHRISTMAS

  • Uncle Mark

    One would think that if the Liberty Council REALLY cared about Christmas, they might lobby for the immigration of poor Syrian or other Middle Eastern people/families looking for a safe refuge away from war and persecution. They might also try to collect money/gifts for poor families in desperate need. They would also be promoting peace and unity, not inciting division with their tired “war” references.

    At the end of the day, the real message is that they are simply a lobbying organization, intent only upon making money for their members, than actually living up to the standards their sacred tome has laid out for them.

    • whollyfool

      That would require they read their book. They saw the movie version by Michael Bay.

    Public schools and public property belong to non-Christians as much as Christians. Private business such as nursing homes and sales outlets can be run however the owners wish, and the owners have no obligation to bend to the will of any religious group. And putting Christmas-y decorations on coffee cups and saying “Merry Christmas” has no more religious significance than taking a dump in the toilet.

  • marshlc

    I love Christmas, and having been raised with a Christian Christmas, a lot of what I love about Christmas is tied to Christian imagery. I still own the nativity scene from my childhood, and the youngest child still puts the baby Jesus in the manger on Christmas Eve. I sing Christmas hymns and carols.

    And the fact that people who do not share my love of these things would rather not pay for me to have them, and would rather not be forced to participate in them, doesn’t stop me from my enjoyment of them one little bit.

    Christian content around Christmas is not illegal, forbidden, or at all difficult to find. The religious Christmas cards I send my relatives who like them were bought off the shelf at Walmart, right beside the cat themed ones I send to everyone else.

    And I would LOVE to hear the details of those kids forbidden from wearing red and green in December, because I’m willing to bet a considerable sum it either didn’t happen at all, or didn’t happen like that.

    • Reality.Bites

      I for one will no longer tolerate your war on puppy lovers.

    • Bj Lincoln

      I can appreciate your love of a Christian based Christmas as I too was raised in a Christian household with all the trimmings and church events. At 16 I left the church and studied religions until I found one that satisfied my spiritual needs. Since then, I have found there are many different religions with holidays in the same month and week as the one day of Christmas so I wish everyone a Happy Holiday instead of singling out just one religion. My issue is the MONTHS of Christmas crap I am forced to tolerate every year. It takes over the airwaves, cable and stores with no thought to the other holidays. I have no idea why LC is so against the recognition of the other holidays except they are ignorant and greedy. There is no war on Christmas or Christians. They are the ones who declare war on the rest of us. Enjoy your holiday and I hope it is all you hope for. I will do the same. Happy Holiday!

    • Chucktech

      Absolutely. Me, too, marshlc.

      Christmas can be as religious or as secular as you want it to be.

      As far as I’m concerned, December 25th is Christmas.

      The tree set up with lights and decorations in the public square is a Christmas tree, just as the one in your living room is. [Edit] However, no Nativity scenes out there unless there’s also a Santa.

      If someone wishes me “Merry Christmas,”I graciously accept their tidings of good will and respond in kind.

      The whole Jeezy/Mary/Joseph yarn is a seasonal tale that I enjoy. It’s cultural and seasonal and I have not Problem One with it.

      And I’m a big, loud mouthed, dyed-in-the-wool, borderline militant atheist.

      Merry Christmas.

    • Chris Baker

      I grew up in a conservative christian house. But even from early on I understood there was a religioous ‘Christmas’ and a ‘secular’ Christmas that happened concurrently. Santa, Rudolph, Reindeers, Christmas trees, presents, wreaths, lights, and Frosty had nothing to do with the religious Christmas. And to me, the “Holidays” included Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years and probably all the days in between. More like a “Happy Holidays season”. And then when I later learned that not everyone celebrated Christmas I thought “holidays’ was a nice way to wish someone joy without offending them. (Although, if anyone wished my a happy Hanukkah, I would not get offended, because at the heart of it is someone wishing me well.)

      On the other hand, if they want to have a war on Gay Pride Month, of national coming out day, or Day against homophobia, then the war on Christmas is what they will get.

    • Librarykid

      RE: you last paragraph. What would religion be without lies and strife and fake conflict to raise money?

  • coram nobis

    So we’re supposed to observe Christmas, a solstice holiday in which we set out evergreen trees and holly in the best northern European pagan tradition, engage in mindless gift-giving (cue stampedes at Wal-Mart) and sit down for holiday feasts with our families in which we re-open old grudges along with a lot of liquor.

  • ColdCountry

    I’ve always loved Christmas carols – though not 24/7 for two months. They are mostly easy for me, with my limited range and tin ear, to sing, and pleasing to belt out. In school, one of my favorite times was the Christmas concert when each class (small school) would sing a carol while holding real, lighted candles. It was huge fun, and I’m not sure anyone was stressed by any religious meaning of it, although as a child, I probably wouldn’t have known. Thing is, the words didn’t matter to me, it was just fun, brought a sense of community, as every person in town with a child in school was there, and I got to sing, regardless of how bad I was. I’m an agnostic, but do I say, ‘Merry Christmas’? Yes, because 95% of the time, it puts a smile on someone’s face. It’s a simple, easy thing to do, and why the heck not when the world could use more smiles. I really think people need to stop being offended by good wishes.

    (I do get the whole inclusion/exclusion thing, but… fuck it, I like Christmas.)

    • Reality.Bites

      The problem with Christmas carols and pop songs associated with the holiday is that there will always be some we love and some we hate.

      The one “we’ll be having a wonderful christmas time” makes me want to commit acts of violence on the offending sound system.

      • Friday

        I’m pretty lucky there, when it comes to the local super. If they do play holiday music, they seem to keep it to a minimum, anyway, enough that I don’t remember being slowly driven mad by the repetition. (still may have some working-retail damage that way. πŸ™‚ )

    • Friday

      I kinda do wish they’d keep it to moderation with those, …they’re pretty overplayed as it is, however charming in small doses. And sometimes I’m just not in the mood for the Christian religious content or whatnot. A lot of the seasonal symbols really are derived from Pagan religions, though, so it’s a real shame the exclusivists in Christianity have to try to use the holiday to mark territory against anyone else being supposed to have a nice holiday. I actually don’t have a problem wishing people ‘Merry Christmas’ if I happen to know they celebrate, as much as the assumption’s apparently supposed to be that everyone is Christian or should pretend to be.

      • ColdCountry

        I tend to be able to tune out the religious content, and I do know a lot of non-Christians who celebrate the holiday, so other than the overwhelming repetition of it all, it doesn’t bother me. We see symbolism however and wherever we wish. I knew one Jewish woman who wasn’t sure she wanted to give her kid the Chronicles of Narnia due to the overt Christian content, and I also knew a young atheist, who was raised by atheists, who loved the books, so I asked her what she thought of all the Christian symbolism. Her response was, “What Christian symbolism?” You don’t know the myths, you don’t get the connection. I did see the connection, being raised Christian, but I tuned it out and just enjoyed the cracking good story. Kinda the way I feel about Christmas. Even if religious content is blatantly there, you can’t force someone to see it or acknowledge it if they don’t want to. Same as some Dump supporters are totally blind to what he is. And I agree, it’s the exclusivity of some “Christians” that is the problem, not the way people choose to celebrate – or not.

  • Q: why are our school officials teaching Christmas carols in the first place, much less censoring certain words?

    • Natty Enquirer

      Because they are a part of culture and history and belong in a well-rounded education. As do the arts of other religions. When schools promote Christian art over the others, or include elements of worship, that is the problem.

      • Reality.Bites

        Moreover, most of us can see that most nominal Christians celebrate Christmas in a manner so secular that we have no problem joining in.

  • Treant

    (Waves hand) Foe. I think people who want to can celebrate Christmas. If they don’t, that’s cool, too.

    There are schools that ban wearing red and green? I’d like to know where they get their info, because I’ve never heard of this happening. The only schools I know of that limit what you can wear are religious/private schools. And they ban seniors from singing Christmas carols? Where is this done? Wonder which stores will be on the naughty list? One that has a Happy Holidays sign in their window? Everyone should be able to celebrate the holidays the way they want to. Such bull.

    • TuuxKabin

      I keep calling them to ask just those questions, line is constantly busy.

    • Gianni

      They have to keep their religiously brain-warped base in a “We’re facing religious discrimination” frame of mind. It means the fools send in more money to the mouthpieces.

    Are Boycotts Moral? For the Religious Right, It Depends on Who They’re Targeting

    http://www.rightwingwatch.org/post/are-boycotts-moral-for-the-religious-right-it-depends-on-who-theyre-targeting/

    Boycotts by ‘the left’ are analogous to “economic terrorism”, but boycotts by right-wingers are a patriotic duty. Hmm..

    • Gianni

      So true. I never really paid attention to the different attitudes they have for boycotts. I must remember that if I’m ever confronted with that argument.

  • Alexander Stallwitz

    Man, is it War on Christmas Time already? This year just flew by…

    Wow, only two choices? Gotta pick FOE then, you buncha intolerant assholes.

    I hate xmas having worked retail and made my entire living of the shitty holiday and serving the misery it creates. With that said thank you one and all for wasting so much money on a fictional person’s birthday celebration to ensure I still have a job. Happy Holidays to you all.

    In reality, Xmas and Yule and Winter Nights and Tet, etc, etc., are all winter solstice festivals.

    Plus, Saturnalia was the big festival in Rome.

    Xmas was invented (made-up) by the church to force people to worship jebus.

    Plus Easter is a spring fertility festival that the church also invented.

    • stevenj

      Festivus for the rest of us.

      More appropriation of indigenous customs, basically. That’s basically why those seasonal customs don’t actually fit Christianity in the first place: the *season* was always the reason for the season. πŸ™‚

    • Priya Lynn

      The church didn’t invent easter or christimas, it expropriated them.

    Just bought my holiday cards this morning. Not a one mentions christmas or anything religious. Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings are my mantras for the season.

  • David

    As a non-Christian, I definitely resent having Xmas forcibly rammed down my throat.

  • Coprolite

    From the very bottom if my pagan heart, I wish them all a Merry Thankgiving, a Happy Christmas and may the Gods shit on your New Year.

  • Gianni

    Haven’t they heard? Donnie has already given the American people permission to say, “Merry Christmas” again. I didn’t know that we had been prevented from saying that – you know, free speech and all that. It seems the real complaint is that many public service people say, “Happy Holiday” or some such and such a pleasant greeting or wish for others is not the proper way to show the necessary respect for the season. Who knew that our President was so dedicated to behaving and speaking properly to others?

    • Friday

      Christianists think ‘religious freedom’ is oppressed if they can’t make their prescribed holiday greetings mandatory. πŸ™‚

      • Gianni

        So true. That and a lot of other things that they would want everyone else to believe.

  • Henry Auvil

    Remember when we had a President who respected women, the Constitution and the skill of critical thinking? *sigh* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqEQW3EBEUE

    Where’s the Thanksgiving holiday in this yearly rehash? Would they mind if I cooked a turkey before Christmas? Please, you holier-than-thou Christians, go fuck yourselves with my blessing for a Happy Holiday.
