A Politically Correct Christmas???

(Someone posted this today on another email list, and I thought some of you just might enjoy it; while others, well........ just simply hit the delete key!!!)

IT was the month before Christmas when all through our land,
Not a Christian was praying nor taking a stand.
Why the PC Police had taken away,
The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
The children were told by their schools not to sing,
About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say
December 25th is just a 'Holiday'.
Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!
CDs from Madonna, an XBOX, an I-pod
Something was changing, something quite odd!
Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
As Targets are hanging their trees upside down
At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.
At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears;
You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.
Inclusive, sensitive, diversity
Are words that were used to intimidate me.
Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!
At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace.
The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'DreamTree'
Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
Choose your words carefully, choose what you say…
Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!

That was a fabulous poem. Hope you don't mind if I send it around a little.

I also posted this on my blog today. Quite accurate for the day we're living in don't you think?

Sis. Julie,

Yep, it brought a smile and a chuckle from me in regards to the current events of today.... I don't remember this much PC strife growing up through the years such as we have heard in the last ten years or so.

Joshua and Psalm127v3,

No problem at all... many need to read it.
