I'm using that line....
Anyway, I hate all this PC, Liberalist bullshit.
If you're Christian, saying "Happy Christmas" is not a crime. It's the opposite. It's a kind person wishing you well. Christian holidays are often knocked down, as though they offend non- Christians. However, the other prominent and minor world religion don't get this treatment.
There's a general feeling in the world that Christian holidays are merely tolerated. But, conversely, we're taught to respect and honour other religions, accept that they're different (by we I do mean Christians, but also students in the school system etc.).
Also, people aren't happy these days unless they can find some afflicted group they can associate themselves with. So the people who pretend to be offended my Christmas are just more poor souls on the band wagon to the PC hell...
Extreme lefties can go lick Ann Coulter' s boots, for all I care. Just give me Christmas back.
