Many have started this thing of politically correct when pertaining to Christmas and other things. I read this and believe it was written out of fun. However it kind of makes me think.

Politically Correct 12 Days of Christmas
Spoiler:


On the 12th day of the Eurocentrically imposed midwinter
festival, my significant other in a consenting adult,
monogamous relationship gave to me:

TWELVE males reclaiming their inner warrior through ritual
drumming,

ELEVEN pipers piping (plus the 18-member pit orchestra made
up of members in good standing of the Musicians Equity Union
as called for in their union contract even though they will
not be asked to play a note),

TEN melanin-deprived testosterone-poisoned scions of the
patriarchal ruling class system leaping,

NINE persons engaged in rhythmic self-expression,

EIGHT economically disadvantaged female persons stealing
milk-products from enslaved Bovine-Americans,

SEVEN endangered swans swimming on federally protected
wetlands,

SIX enslaved Fowl-Americans producing stolen non-human
animal products,

FIVE golden symbols of culturally sanctioned enforced
domestic incarceration,

(NOTE: after members of the Animal Liberation Front
threatened to throw red paint at my computer, the calling
birds, French hens, and partridge have been reintroduced to
their native habitat. To avoid further Animal-American
enslavement, the remaining gift package has been revised.)

FOUR hours of recorded whale songs,

THREE deconstructionist poets,

TWO Sierra Club calendars printed on recycled processed tree
carcasses, and

ONE Spotted Owl activist chained to an old-growth pear tree.

Merry Christmas.
Happy Chanukah/Hanukkah.
Good Kwanzaa.
Blessed Yule.
Happy Holidays!!!! (unless otherwise prohibited by
law)

Unless, of course, you are suffering from Seasonally
Affected Disorder (SAD). If this be the case, please
substitute this gratuitous call for celebration with a
suggestion that you have a thoroughly adequate day.

Honestly, I'm beginning to wonder how far it will go. Already people in stores, restaurants, and schools are requested to say "Happy Holidays" instead of MERRY CHRISTMAS.

What would it look lie if other carols were reformated to be "politically correct"

O Christmas Tree
Spoiler:

O Holiday Tree of which does not have any specific ties to any religion or belief

We Wish you a Merry Christmas
Spoiler:
"We Wish You a Merry Non-Religious-Specific Day-Off in Winter."


Honestly this scares me. I like to joke about it, but what will Christmas become? Will it become a strictly Christian Holiday, and a new name for the day spring forth to satisfy those who are "offended". What about us? Isn't it offensive to us that people want to spread "Holiday Cheer" by saying Happy Holidays, instead of MERRY CHRISTMAS? My point here is that even among the discrepancies and controversies, we must make a stand for what we believe in.

Ahem... Allow me to get off my soapbox. What is your thoughts on what Christmas is becoming/Happy Holidays and etc?

Wow. I was just talking about this on my way to church with my dad this morning. We saw a sign saying, "Go to the Holiday Market!", and he joked that he wasn't going there, because they said Holiday instead of Christmas. Why do they do that?

Let's take a look at how Christmas has changed over the years. It used to be a celebration of Christ's birth, and now? Now it is a celebration of this fat guy that TV shows compare to Jesus, in his way of loving everyone and deciding who is good and bad and rewarding those who are good. Seems to me society is trying to steer us in a direction, to where Christmas isn't a holiday where we remember the Christmas Story in the Bible, but where we remember the story of jolly old Saint Nick, the giver of presents to all! Of course, society doesn't ever SAY that. No, first they said.

"Okay, Christmas is a long word and takes a while to write on everything, so we are going to say X-mas, just to make it easier."

Funny how they changed it so the word, "Christ" isn't there anymore. After that, they said,

"Okay, December has MANY different celebrations in it! Hanukkah, Chri- I mean, X-mas, Zwanza, and to some people, it is just a mini summer break in the winter. I know! Let's just say, 'Happy Holidays' so we don't offend anyone who says X-mas!!! YAY!"

Okay, so now it is just "Holidays" that everyone says. Not even anything related to Christmas, just Holidays. THAT is the "politically correct" term.

Now, is it just me, or does political correctness in today's society, just mean taking anything pertaining to God out of the picture? I mean, Christmas went to Xmas, and THAT took Christ out of the picture. But then they changed it to Holidays so it isn't as obvious. Let me guess, now they will have Christmas songs changed to political correctness, like Jason showed. People will write songs that actually make fun of Christian and Christmas from a Christian viewpoint/

Oh, Holy Night

"O, holiday night. You can't see the stars because the lights from all the shops make it impossible.
This is the night, where "heathens" remember what they think happened in the book known as their "Bible."

So in answer to Jason's question, YES! The political correctness is going to far, and needs to stop.

When you take God out of Christmas, it becomes a holiday, not about giving to others, as He did to you, but about getting from others. I mean really, have you all SEEN how kids act these days when they don't get EXACTLY what they want? Kids crying because they got an iPod that isn't the right color, shape, or GB size. Yeah, that is what relying on Santa instead of God gets you. A greedy heart.

I don't care about being politically correct. I care about being biblically correct.

Also, I think I'm going to write a song parody about this... I'll find a dumb Christmas song, like that Justin Bieber one, and I'll make it... better. Smile

If you all feel the same as I do watch the movie called "Christmas with a capital C." It's on netflix and is a GREAT wholesome Christian movie that talks all about this.

Plus it has Brad Stein in it...Which...Makes everything better! Wink

It's cool that you brought this topic up. We were discussing this at church last night. One man brought up why instead of saying "Merry Christmas" people say "Happy Holidays." My pastor said that when we say Christmas we are actually saying Christ's mass. I believe mass is a tradition of the Catholics not necessarily something the Bible is adamant we celebrate. I get what your are saying when people leave Christ out of the word Christmas.
