Merry [Blank]!!!!

Merry [Blank]!!!!

Current mood:aggravated

I do not celebrate Christmas in the 'traditional' sense. I have my own way. Not trying to one-up anyone. I just try to keep the secular stuff out of my own beliefs, as much as possible. Don't be misinformed. I believe the tenents of Christmas. That the Yashus became flesh and lived amongst us. I just do not do the secular stuff - Christmas tree, the commercialism of the present frenzy.

Listening to the radio today, I heard yet another story of schools changing lyrics of Christmas songs be cause - and it is always this way - one parent complaining. Could not find that particular news story (who knows. If the news made a big deal about this, then possibly parents who care about their kids, would finally rise up in revolt).

Found this one. Its generic, but a good example of what the government, schools, and now the churches are doing, to appeaze the ACLU, atheists, and the like.

We appease the Jews. We appease the muslims. We appease the atheists. No one is willing to appease Christians.

I used to go to Corale concerts when my neice's and nephews were singing. Instead of enjoying myself, I would sit there and get aggravated, and they sang Kwanza songs. Jewish songs. Everything but songs that mentioned Christmas. And the parents SAT there and took it.

I blame the parents and the voters who allow this kind of stuff to happen.

Read this carefully. If you have your kids in Public school, you are guilty of destroying their lives. Your kids are learning about drugs. Pre-maritial sex. Socialism. They are being taught to hate this country. Do anything. Do not be concerned with the consequences. Its someone eles fault. Nothing that they do, can't be blamed on society. The government. Some 'ism' or 'obia' (racism, sexism, homophobia. Whatever) is always the reason that someone is not just standing over your head dropping grapes into your mouth.

Jewish? Don't like us singing about Yahsua? Tough. Go dredel yourself a airplace ticket to somewhere else. Funny how Black Friday is not a national Holiday yet. Kwanza? A racist seperatist Holiday celebration. Who would have thunk? Muslim? Go decorate a severed head. Elsewhere. Or strap on a bomb, gather your friends and family around, sing your holiday songs, and detonate yourself in the middle of them. Atheist? You got bigger problems than you will admit to. Or realize.
Good enough?

Its not 'Happy Holidays'. It is Merry Christmas. Bother you? Offended? Are your panties in a wad? Spotting and cramping? Move to where you can be happy. And kiss my entire ass on the way out.

Politically correct Christmas carols censor 'king', 'son' and 'virgin'

Churches are making traditional Christmas carols politically correct by removing words such as "king", "son" and "virgin", it is claimed.

Enduring favourites such as Hark the Herald Angels Sing and God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen are being altered by clergy to make them more "modern and inclusive".

But churchgoers say there is no need to change the popular carols and complain that the result is a "festive car crash" if not everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet.

It comes just a day after a Church of England vicar banned his congregation from singing O Little Town of Bethlehem because he believed its words do not reflect the suffering endured by modern residents of Jesus's birthplace.

Another clergyman has rewritten the Twelve Days of Christmas to include Aids victims, drug addicts and hoodies.

Steve Goddard, co-editor of the Christian website Ship of Fools, which is running a competition to find the worst example of a rewritten carol, said: "It's a festive car crash.
"Half the congregation sing familiar words from memory, while the rest stumble over revised alternatives. Our readers are telling us straight – for some new versions there should be no room at the inn."

Among the "theologically-modified, politically-corrected" carols encountered by visitors to the website are Hark the Herald Angels Sing in which the line "Glory to the newborn King" has been replaced by "Glory to the Christ child, bring".

The well-known refrain of O Come All Ye Faithful – "O come let us adore Him" – has also been changed in one church to "O come in adoration", both changes apparently made for fear the original was sexist.

"[One reader] wrote in asking if the original line was considered too gender-specific," Mr Goddard said. "But as he rightly pointed out, Jesus wasn't hermaphrodite, neither was he a girl."

Churchgoers at one carol service will not be allowed to sing the words "all in white" during Once in Royal David's City in case they appear racist, while another cleric has removed the word "virgin" from God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen.
