Nothing says “What Would Jesus Do” like a two-tone gold crucifix being sold for 1,161.30. […]

The War On Non-Christmas Heads to Farmville

The “War On Christmas” phrase is really a misnomer. The organized mounting of active complaints when any government or business entity makes anything other than a declaration of “Christmas” is really a War On Non-Christmas, an attempt to push all celebrations but Christian celebrations out of the public sphere.

Covering Christmas is Just Like Covering the Solstice, Isn't It?

A Solstice Celebration, Shorter Than the Day’s Long By Cara Buckley

Sunday morning was a nasty time to be out and about in New York, with cold rain falling hard… and yet 17 people got out of bed anyway, all with the same thought: “I shall go stand in the middle of an intersection […]
