Boycott Wal-Mart for taking CHRIST out of CHRISTMAS

This is the wording on a large yard sign that was left on my doorstep last night. Apparently some well-meaning religious-righter was going around Baton Rouge giving free signs for all of the other religious-righters who might support the cause.

It was very tempting to do a little editing with my Sharpie and stick the sign in my yard with it reading Boycott the Religious Right for taking CHRIST out of CHRISTIANITY. But I didn't feel like getting my house egged or my car keyed, so I decided not to.

Personally, I think it's wonderful that stores are moving to market the "holiday" rather than "Christmas". You'd think the religious right would be happy that the cold, marketing aspect of Christmas might get cut out a bit. But no...all they can see is another attempt to take their Jesus out of the mainstream.

And he is "their Jesus", because the Jesus I know and respect didn't go around pressing this exclusionism on everyone. "It's our way or NO WAY". I never remember reading Jesus saying that; "love your neighbor", yes; "conform or be cast out", no.

And, really, when it comes down to it, Jesus Christ wasn't even born on December 25 - so what difference does it make if the stores are hip to it and choose not to mark the occasion as *only* his birthday? Makes sense to me.
