  1. It's times like this that I don't want to be assoiated with Christianity.

    I think this has to do both with Christians' need to be persecuted to demonstrate their righteousness and the fear of losing any power and control as the dominant religion in America.

    It is hard for me to see the "War on Christmas" as anything more than cynical political manipulation.
