The War Against Christmas: Field Reports

The war against Christmas escalated this year like never before and the first thing a defender of Christmas needs to do is become aware of the widespread wickedness the Grinch Gang unleashed. The Family Research Council is offering a brief report of this escalation which incorporates the stories of hundreds of people around the country who have told of the war being waged against Christmas in their respective neighborhoods by the likes of the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and others.

You can submit a request for that report (which is e-mailed to you immediately) right here.

These are examples of some of the corporate sponsored "networking groups" worldwide. These groups have a corporate-sponsored month to celebrate their diversity - banners, posters, workshops and guest speakers included. In fact, just recently there was a celebration for the Indian "Diwali" festival of lights in the main cafeteria of the campus (which is the workplace of 1,500 - 1,700 people).

Her work location is having a talent show for artists and performers to share what they enjoy with colleagues. She is a musician/singer and submitted her request to sing and play on guitar "Silent Night."
She was asked not to sing this song. "You know how sensitive people are around here," was the comment. I am amazed at how diversity exists for EVERY group except Christians. Discrimination is alive and well, and it is corporate-sponsored on nearly every level.
