From the Tongue in Cheek Department: A New Christmas Greeting

As Advent begins and the secular world begins already to celebrate Christmas, or the winter holiday as they say, Fr. Tom offers us an interesting:

OBSERVATION ABOUT THE NEED FOR INCLUSIVITY - from Fr. Tom Collins
President Obama has repeatedly asserted that Islam is a religion of peace.
If this is so, should we not try to make our Christmas celebrations more
inclusive by stopping our imposition of the Christian "Peace on earth"
and, instead, loudly proclaiming in crowded shopping malls during the
Christmas season, "Allah hu Akbar"? I believe that people would respond
quite dramatically [And how!] to such a pro-active effort to make Christmas more
inclusive. It is just a thought to help all of us stay politically correct
during the holiday season and to bring a smile to the face of our President. [And, of course, we all want to do that, eh?]

THE ATTACK ON CHRISTMAS

After 2000 years a new Herod
tries to kill baby Jesus again
he doesn’t just sit there on his tod
he arrogantly comes out of his den

No more “Merry Christmas”
only “enjoy”, “Happy Holidays”
no more allowed to witness
no more allowed to praise

An old man, they call “Santa”
supersedes the Holiness of “The Child”
dressed in a fluffy red “manta”
he domineers and Jesus is reviled

No more public “Mangers” allowed
only most fancy “Holiday” trees
in front of which heads are bowed
asking the tree the world to appease

Oh, my Jesus, please don’t delay
Your coming “on the clouds”
so that all of us this Christmas day
may testify to the crowds.
