Our society goes overboard sometimes trying not to offend others. But I appreciated Cal Thomas’ column on the “War on Christmas” in today’s Eagle. Thomas wrote: “I do not care whether a mall employee wishes me a ‘Merry Christmas,’ or whether mall managers favor snowpersons over manger scenes, or erect trees they call ‘holiday’ and not ‘Christmas.’ It isn’t about their observing this event, giving us a ‘religious rush’ and creating a false sense of security that the culture is better than it is. It is about people who believe in this historic event observing it in a way that recalls the birth of the Savior of the world (not the savior of the bottom line): silently, wondrously and worshipfully.”
