To My Friends on Christmas

To All My Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wished.

To My Republican Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


M. Amaral
Vice President, Rivier College Republicans

How the Liberals Stole Christmas

Liberals, like the Grinch, are ruining Christmas!

Liberals in Fort Collins, Colorado want to remove anything religious that pertains to Christmas (including green and red lights!) from public areas because it might "offend" people who aren't Christian. This, sadly, isn't a joke.

The holiday is Christmas! How can we celebrate Christmas without including religion? In case you don't know, Christmas is a FEDERAL HOLIDAY! This is our country. This is our tradition. Christmas is a major part of our heritage since the majority of the U.S. citizens are Christian. The crazy liberals in the minority shouldn't decide what is appropriate or inappropriate. The majority rules. A nation in which the minority rules would be in chaos! I wouldn't go to Saudi Arabia and tell them to change the way they celebrate Eid ul-Fitr just because I'm Christian. I would respect their traditions. Yet, the liberals want to attack our Christian heritage and change our traditions to the point where they don't resemble our traditions. To liberals, it's freedom FROM religion, not freedom OF religion.

The liberal Grinches want to ruin Christmas for children too!

A man who portrayed Santa Claus at a mall was fired because he said his famous phrase, "Ho! Ho! Ho!" According to the liberal who fired him, "Ho! Ho! Ho!" is offensive to women. Again, this isn't a joke.

"They're trying to kill the spirit of Christmas," said retired entertainer John Oakes, who has been a Santa for 10 years. "This is a case of politcal correctness going crazy."

"When the manager spoke to me she said my services were no longer required. "When I asked her why, she replied: 'You said ho ho ho and that's not appropriate.' "Not appropriate! How long has Santa been calling ho ho ho, for goodness sake?"

You can't say "Merry Christmas" any more. Now, it's "Happy Holidays" everywhere from schools (that don't allow Christmas carols) to stores (that refuse to have anything that says "Merry Christmas"). Liberal political correctness is out of control! We have to save Christmas, and our country from these liberals before it's too late!
