Americans for Separation of Church and State has a great list of resolutions that the Religious Right would do well to take to heart. Their advice to drop the “War on Christmas” fund-raising gimmick seems particularly good way to close out our recent silly season of holiday hysteria.
Drop the whole “War on Christmas” thing: It’s tiresome, and you’ve raised enough money on it. Attacking people for failing to use certain terms or employing certain symbols to celebrate the holidays is silly. It also makes a mockery of a season that is supposed to be dedicated to peace and goodwill. Display your sacred symbols in houses of worship all you want; don’t expect the government to do that job for you.
