Fwd: FW: Political Correctness and the Holiday Season - Enough is Enough --NOT A JOKE

Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year which prompted CBS presenter, Steven Levy, to present this piece which I would like to share with you. I think it applies just as much to many countries as it does to America.
A little sanity please... 
Only hope we find GOD again before it is too late!!

The following was written by Steven Levy and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.
My confession:
I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.

I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat...
Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him?

I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.
In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. 

In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.
Then Dr. Steven Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about.. And we said okay..
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?

Short and sweet: Hey theocrats: Blow it out your ass.

This country is NOT a theocracy. Get over it and stay in your ever-shrinking bible belt enclaves.

Most of the lewd crude & obscene stories I see are passed around by RWD. Certainly he passes around the biggest lies, yet RWD claims to go to church read the Bible & follow the commandments. Guess that aptly demonstrates how just be religious-y doesn't make a damn bit of difference in regulating people's behavior & actions.

Finally why is it that only so-called "religion " is capable of teaching people right from wrong? Most of the big time "ministers" out there are amoral lying grifters often busted for ripping off their followers as well as being caught in sex scandals.

@ Mike Hawk

Maybe tell your fellow right wing idiots to come up with some new lies to forward around, instead of recycling the same old debunked crap every Christmas season.

In the above RWF commentary (it clearly states it's a commentary) there are no lies; just opinions as one would come to expect in a commentary piece.

Written by former Nixon speechwriter Ben Stein.

Implies that O'Hair was murdered because she was an atheist. No, she was kidnapped and murdered by a psychopath.

Implies that Dr. Spock's son killed himself because he wasn't spanked enough. As of this writing, he is still alive.

If you have to lie and distort to advance your agenda, you just may be a fake-Christian.

Congratulations, RWD readers. A certain not-to-be-named moronic RW troll had two comments in this thread which went unnoticed with no response. If everyone continues to ignore his sophomoric observations perhaps he will just go away.

'Cuz that happens ALL THE TIME!

"I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare...complained she didn't want prayer in our schools..."

Murray v. Curlett led to the Supreme Court ruling ending official BIBLE-READING in American public schools in 1963, a year AFTER the Supreme Court put an end to prayer in schools in Engel v. Vitale.

And the "Engel" in that landmark decision, Mr. Levy, was Stephen Engle - an observant Jew who probably didn't like being "pushed around", either.
