The "WAR" on Christmas

The so-called war on Christmas is finally over. Who won?

To paraphrase Churchill, never in the field of human endeavor have so few made so much noise about so little.

From where I sit, it seems that too many of the religious fundamentalists are just not happy unless they feel they are being persecuted. If they can feel their persecution is the result of a sinister conspiracy, that is even better. I have read many letters and columns making preposterous claims about a vast, evil and most secret conspiracy to (take your pick) destroy Christmas; destroy Christianity or destroy the "American way of life" (whatever that is)

Most of these people don't have enough sense to come in out of the rain. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence knows that if more than 3 people are involved, then it is no longer a secret.

But, with the Christmas season over, I suppose we can go back to the hum-drum war on Christianity. If nothing else, it makes for some interesting reading (in the sense that most writings on the subject are so totally stupid they are funny.)
