Subject: Fwd: Add to your Christmas card list

Here's a great thought that could help create an interesting problem for the ACLU

          Pass this on to your church, co-workers, family, and friends. What do you have to lose but 44 cents, what do you have to gain -----------  more than you will ever know.

          What a clever idea!  Yes, Christmas cards. This is coming early so that you can get ready to include an important address to your list.

          Want to have some fun this CHRISTMAS?

          Send the ACLU a CHRISTMAS CARD this year.

          As they are working so very hard to get rid of the CHRISTMAS part of this holiday, we should all send them a nice, card to brighten up their dark, sad, little world.  Make sure it says "Merry Christmas" on it.

          Here's the address, just don't be rude or crude:

               125 Broad Street , 18th Floor
               New York , NY 10004

          Two tons of Christmas cards would freeze their operations because they wouldn't know if any were regular mail containing contributions. So spend 44 cents and tell the ACLU to leave Christmas alone. Also tell them that there is no such thing as a

          " Holiday Tree".  It's always been called a CHRISTMAS TREE!

          And pass this on to your email lists. We really want to communicate with the ACLU! They really DESERVE us!!

          For those of you who aren't aware of them, the ACLU, (the American Civil Liberties Union) is the one suing the U.S. Government to take God, Christmas or anything religious away from us. They represent the atheists and others in this war. Help put Christ back in Christmas!

          I just did!

Yup, because that's what the lawyers at the ACLU do: sit around at headquarters and open mail, hoping that donations will fall out.

They represent the atheists and others in this war

Damn atheists and "others". Where do they get the idea that its ok to not be Christian in America?

Christmas cards? That's strictly amateur hour.

Try shipping them old washing machines, instead.

I just did!

War? I think that word doesn't mean what you think it means.

Well, here we go. It's early November, and the "resistance" to the non-existant "War on Christmas" is gearing up.

Hey, idiots! Forget about the quagmire in the middle east, the economy, the fact that our corporate overlords are robbing us blind! Look - a fake War on Christmas!

(Personally, anytime some jackass sends me a stupid "War on Christmas" forward, I mark them down for a passive-aggressive "Happy Holidays" card. I'm particuarly partial to sending them UNICEF cards that say "Peace on Earth" in several different languages...not that I ever hear anything back, of course.)

Yeah! Christians using the occasion of their savior's "birthday" (it's not, you know) to bludgeon their perceived opponents with symbols of the holiday. With charity in their hearts, no doubt.

It's enough to make Baby Jesus cry.

If I had to guess, I'd say the ACLU gets plenty of unwanted mail, yet somehow they manage to deal with it all. If anything, a bunch of Christmas cards might be a nice break for them from all the hate mail they get, and encourage them to keep up the good work.

I was going to day...

And the first shot in the War on Christmas is fired. I swear, it's getting earlier and earlier every year.

"It's always been called a CHRISTMAS TREE!"

Except of course that it's a Christian appropriation of pre-Christian Western European tree-based beliefs, such as the Laeradr, Glasir, Barnstokkr, the Yggdrasil, and so on.

But then again, what can you say to people who honestly believe that Christianity is the oldest religion on the planet, like Sherri Shepherd?

Unsurprisingly, the ACLU represents lots of citizens from all walks of life, creeds & philosophies. I'm pretty sure that they have represented Ku Klux Klan, and other Aryan white supremicist groups, many of whom claim they're super-duper Christians. I note that when the ACLU represents these types of rightwingers, there's no *protest* about "how dare you rightwingers accept help from the likes of the dreaded LIEbrul ACLU?????" No, in fact, the righwingers are more than happy to accept the legal respresentation provided by the ACLU.

Nice for rightwingers that the dreaded LIEbrul ACLU actually has a "non-denominational" approach to who and what they'll represent and don't actually, you know, *confine* their fine work only to so-called "leftwing" causes and people.

It would be *helpful* if rightwingers ever actually acknowledged that, but I sure as heck won't hold my breath expecting rightwingers to be actually truthful and stick to facts 'n stuff when a bunch of victimizing incitement against the eeevul LIEbrul boogeman is so much more fun.

What is this "mail" thing everyone keeps talking about?

"...suing the U.S. Government to take God, Christmas or anything religious away from us."

Actually, NOBODY is trying to take ANYTHING away from you. I've never heard of a single instance of anyone in this country being prevented from practicing Christianity in their own homes, in their own places of worship, or any other private place. Nor have I heard of anyone stopping the establishment of innumerable Christian churces and schools all throughout the country. Nor have I even heard of anyone getting stopped from praying in public places (just as long as they're not distrubing other people or demanding that others listen, of course).

Occassionally, organizations like the ACLU do, indeed, try to stop you from shoving "God, Christmas or anything religious" down the throats of OTHER PEOPLE, or focing OTHER PEOPLE to be subjected to YOUR religion in public places. Which is hardly the same thing.

So what IS it about your religion - or YOU - that makes you feel so threatened by other people not beleiving what you beleive, and makes you feel like you're persecuted when you're told to stop shoving your religion at the rest of us?

(PS - ever read Mathew 6:6? I have - and I'm not even religious.)

For my War-on-Christmas relatives I reserve the Arabic postage stamps (they say "blessed holiday") and my rubber stamp of John 3:16 in Arabic. I just love the idea of their apoplexy at seeing that lovely, curving writing, which they assume must say, "Attack all Christians at dawn!"
