I know to a certain degree it does not matter. In the big picture of things it does not matter whether people say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." But there is a principle involved. We are shifting as a nation and going in the wrong direction.
A recent survey shows that 61% of Americans prefer "Merry Christmas" but a whopping 35% want the politically correct and neutral "Happy Holidays." They are the ones who want to get rid of Christmas because they are anti-Christ and anti-God, though they would deny this. Six in ten Americans want to be politically correct because they have been brainwashed by the government schools and the media. Guess which group wants to boot Christ out of Christmas? It is the younger crowd of course, those in the 18 to 29 age bracket.
Now guess how this falls in terms of politics? You probably guessed. 91% of Republicans want to keep "Merry Christmas" while 58% of Democrats would to get rid of the greeting. We have been told all along that Democrats have more who are anti-Christian and who detest the idea of Christmas. There is an amusing side to all of this. When they say "Happy Holidays" they are actually saying "Happy Holy" days. But they are too stupid to know this!
Unfortunately, some of those who wish to keep Christmas in the greeting, are comfortable with the idea of keeping the baby Jesus before us. A baby is not very threatening! But to speak about Him as the Savior of the world is probably still a no-no! Yet, I want to commend Fox News for calling Him the Savior and for keeping the idea of Christmas alive in some of their commercials. They are almost the only news organization that did so.
By the way, what will it be like when those 18-29 age people come into their period of greatest influence? The nation will fall even further into the pit. Most of us will be gone, and we'll let them have it! They can go ahead and further the judgment upon this nation. Good bye America! --Dr. Mal Couch (1/11)
