There is a war going on for your dollar.

There is a war on Christmas.

It is being waged every second, every minute, every time you turn on your TV. It has been going on since the beginning of the last century. And it gets worse every year.

The conservative media will tell you that it is being waged by the PC fascists of the left. The Liberals laugh it off as they should. They are not the ones waging the war.

For a holiday that is meant to celebrate Jesus Christ, the only thing that is promoted is greed and consumption.  We have people pepper spraying other shoppers to get gifts. We have incessant advertising. The all mighty dollar rules from Black Friday till Christmas Eve.

All in the name of a holiday that is supposedly celebrates the birth of a man who overthrew the money changers to preserve the sanctity of the temple of god (Mathew 21:12) and whose followers shared all things in common (Acts 2:44).

I may be off track, but it seems those who are waging a war on Christmas are the corporations and vendors attempting to ring every dollar they possibly can out of this misguided celebration.

I leave you with Bill Maher's thoughts on the matter.

Merry Xmas!
