The War on Christmas

Some insist that singing a Christmas carol in a public school is a state endorsement of religion. Would the same people insist that reading Mien Kampf in social studies is a state endorsement of National Socialism (Nazis) as well? So tell me, what's the difference?

This New American article by John Eidsmoe begins this way:

The War on Christmas

"Because "public life" now entails virtually every part of our lives, erasing references to God entirely from public life means virtually eliminating them from America.

Imagine, if you will, a gala birthday party given in your honor. The guests will sing, dance, give presents, eat, drink, and have the merriest of times. The hitch: your name will not be mentioned, the gifts will not be for you, the celebrants won't be thinking about you, and everyone would sort of prefer that you not come."

Merry Christmas.
