    Christmas Jerry Falwell Style

    "Your're either with us, or against us."

    Or boycott. The American Family Association called Thursday for a Thanksgiving weekend shunning of Target stores, saying the chain was refusing to allow the phrase "Merry Christmas" on in-store promotions and advertising. "I don't know where they're coming from," Target spokeswoman Carolyn Brookter replied. "We have no such policy on Christmas. You can see it in our stores."


    American Family Association President Tim Wildmon, wants to see "Merry Christmas" signs displayed prominently in stores "if they expect Christians to come in and buy products during this so-called season." And he isn't worried if they offend people who aren't Christian

    Creeping Toward Fascism

    In an article entitled "The Myth of National Victimhood - All Wrapped and Delivered for Christmas," Thom Hartmann looked at the right's argument that liberals were "out to destroy Christmas": "Cobbling together a few anecdotes... they [the Christian right] managed to imply a vast anti-Christian conspiracy bubbling just under the belly of America, and pushed that frightening implication into the minds of millions of Americans just in time for the holiday season," writes Hartmann, a radio talk show host and the author of several books including, "Unequal Protection," "We The People," and "What
    Would Jefferson Do?

    " Pastor Niemoller spoke for the thousands and thousands of men like me when he spoke (too modestly of himself) and said that, when the Nazis attacked the Communists, he was a little uneasy, but, after all, he was not a Communist, and so he did nothing: and then they attacked the Socialists, and he was a little uneasier, but, still, he was not a Socialist, and he did nothing; and then the schools, the press, the Jews, and so on, and he was always uneasier, but still he did nothing. And then they attacked the Church, and he was a Churchman, and he did something -- but then it was too late."

    So many boycotts for every little thing - they are losing their meaning & value.

    I respectfully implore my Christian friends to take Christmas back from the Jerry Falwell's who seek to divide the country into "us" and "them"?

    This is your holy day. May it bring light and love and peace on earth. Not division.

    What I want to know is why more Christians do not openly denounce Jerry Falwell. This is the same guy who said that the Anti-Christ is alive today and is a male jew, that the teletubbies are part of a gay conspiracy, that liberals, the ACLU and gays and lesbians were responsible for 9/11,

    Falwell is nothing but a dishonest political activist. There is nothing Christian about him, in my opinion.
