Actually, yes, it does matter to me, and not because I'm insecure in my faith, but because it's a stripping away of all things Christian in society.
We've watched as the Ten Commandments, the very things that this nation was founded on and our laws were written from, were taken from Public
Schools. We've watched as the words "UNDER GOD" were removed from our Pledge of Allegiance, before it was taken out of our class rooms. We've
watched as evolution was taught in our schools alongside creationalism, then it replaced it altogether and Creation isn't even taught anymore as a
theory, while evolution is taught as fact when it isn't proven. We've watched as children in public school systems are told they can't wear a
visible cross in schools or a Christian t-shirt to school, while other's are able to wear t-shirts of other faiths. So, yes, it does matter. It is a
stripping away of all things Christian, and it matters to us.
You know, in the 1950's, school problems were kids chewing gum and talking in the classrooms, now, it's guns and drugs (don't know if it's ok to
make a reference to them in that instance...if not, please remove the reference mods). You see, the Happy Holidays reference isn't the whole issue,
it's just a part of a bigger problem. As was once said "The philosophy of the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy of the government
of the next." It's a moral decline, and that is a big issue.
Pretty soon, you know, we won't even be able to find a Hallmark Christmas Card, I guess. Just my thoughts on the matter.
Anyways, Merry Christmas.
