by Michael Gregory Steele and Herman B. HayesI thought this country was the United States of America, not some weak-kneed European Nation lacking in any sort of moral resolve. When I see public support for the Iraq war eroding and so-called Americans growing tired of supporting the cause of freedom and supporting our troops I have my doubts. Take it from me; nothing makes a soldier angrier than someone questioning their mission.
Now, I've never have been a soldier enlisted in any branch of the military, so you might wonder what I would know about the detrimental effect of naysayers on troop morale. I know plenty about it after some of the comments and emails I've received this week.
For you see, I am a soldier -- a soldier fighting in God's army to win this war on (or should I say “the war for”) Christmas. I'm on the front lines, urging my fellow religious freedom fighters to boycott stores that won't specifically acknowledge our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. I'm also squatting in a foxhole writing indignant letters to the editor of my local paper while atheists lob verbal grenades in the form of "Happy Holidays" at me. So I am a soldier, a soldier fighting this just war against the godless unbelievers who so hate Christmas.
But instead of supporting me and the rest of the brave troops in this war, some among you express doubt about the worthiness of our cause. When you question the purpose of this war, you only embolden the atheists and disrespect every man and woman in Christ fighting for Christmas. Would you cowards have the guts to tell Bill O'Reilly that you don't support what he's doing? How about James Dobson? What about me? You are traitors to God and this country, plain and simple.
You think this war we're fighting is pointless, do you? You say the greeting "Happy Holidays" has been used prominently for decades and it's completely benign, huh? Well since I've started really paying attention to it this year, it seems like it's used far too often. This is just a small step before the phrase "Merry Christmas" is outright banned, then say goodbye to the celebration of Christmas, and then before you know it, we'll all be forced to denounce Jesus Christ or face deportation. And still you dare to question this war for Christmas!
We simply cannot wait until the liberals start coming to our homes to pry the Bibles and rosaries out of our righteous hands. No, by then it will be too late.
These secularists are chipping away at our religious freedoms with the power of the judiciary. This is a new breed of enemy that calls for a new more aggressive way of doing things. We must preemptively strike before the ACLU can litigate our Lord out of existence. We can see the influence of these secular progressives already taking hold so we must act now before this holy day of celebration is taken from us forever.
I’m sure you won’t think this fight pointless when they begin tearing down our Christian churches to make way for the cultural sensitivity training centers. Your lack of support for our cause only emboldens these godless liberals. You're either with us, or you're with the godless secular progressives who wish to destroy Christmas (let's just call them terrorists for short).
