It seems like only yesterday that we were reporting on the start of another heartwarming War on Christmas season, doesn't it?
Oh, wait. It was yesterday. But it's not even Thanksgiving yet. Oh well, there's nothing wrong with expanding the most wonderful time of the year!
That said, Fox News has more news in the ongoing assault on our national religion's greatest holiday…
Erupted?! Oh my! Were there any survivors? I mean, besides everybody?
To avoid what could be a costly lawsuit, the village of Alsip will break with tradition and not erect a cross on its water tower near the Tri-State Tollway this holiday season.
The cross had been a fixture since the 1970s, Mayor Patrick Kitching said Monday. But after the Freedom from Religion Foundation, based in Madison, Wis., advised Kitching it would file a lawsuit demanding removal of the cross, citing separation of church and state, Kitching decided to not wage a losing and likely costly legal battle.
You ever notice how it's always a War on Christmas in small-town America? It's never a War on Hanukkah or a War on Ramadan. How about a War on the Festival of Vasant Panchami once in a while? And would it kill them to declare a War on Bahá'í Naw-Rúz now and then? Why is it always the Christian holiday that gets attacked in in these little pockets of our nation?
It just doesn't seem fair.
