Overboard...Completely, Totally Dunked!
I heard a report this morning that in Britain no depiction, or very little, of the birth of Christ is showing up this year in their Christmas cards, decorative displays etc., due to the wish not to offend Muslims and other religions! It doesn't take much to guess that it's the Muslims they are tippy-toeing around! Last year the use of the word "Christmas" was rare and far between. The word that replaced "Christmas" was..."holiday" decorations, "holiday" celebrations etc.!
Christmas is Christmas as Easter is Easter as New Year is New Year. I guess we could turn "New Year" into "Old Year Passing"! Is that offensive to anyone? What about 'birthday'...do we have to change that also because it might offend someone? What about "Sunday Lunch"? We could change that to "The Day After Saturday Lunch"!
This CHRISTMAS in Britain cards, window displays, home decorations et al are not showing Nativity scenes, or the three Wisemen...probably no stars either!
I don't know about you, but I've had 'political correctness' up to here and beyond! I've never been a fan of political correctness. I believe it is being abused to the extreme these days. It has gone too far...stepped over the line!
What beats me is, why are we so damned scared to offend the Muslims? The Muslims sure as hell aren't scared to offend us (one glaring example being il-Hilali...and there are thousands of other examples, far too many to list here in my blog!)...and the Muslims sure as hell aren't scared to threaten or to kill us! Bowing down to Muslims and giving in to Muslims in these manners is completely wrong, in my opinion!
I'm not afraid to offend the Muslims...I think I might set up a Nativity scene in my front garden!
An early Merry Christmas to you all...
