The war on Christmas, the war on Christians. The poor, poor persecuted Christians. Oh, there is so much buzz about Rick Perry's ad, I can't possibly go into detail, but if you're interested, just do a Google search for more info.

1. Perry is wearing the exact same jacket that Heath Ledger wore in "Brokeback Mountain." You can't make this stuff up, really.

2. Both the Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud condemned the ad, but GOProud took it further by outing one of Perry's staff for supporting him (Christians aren't the only hypocrites, folks. Pot, meet kettle.).

3. BTW, a teacher (I can't remember where) took the word "gay" out of "Deck the Halls." because the kids were snickering. Really? You couldn't just explain that "don we now our gay apparel" doesn't mean wearing a speedo and draping yourself in a rainbow flag?

4. For the record, I don't care if you say "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." I will take it in the spirit it is intended - especially since Christmas is also a secular holiday - and wish you likewise.

The whole argument over saying "Merry Christmas" is stupid. If I know the person celebrates Christmas (whether secular or religious), I'll say it, but if I'm not sure, I'll say "Happy Holidays." I don't get why it has to be such a big deal.

I thought they changed "gay" to "bright" in "Deck the Halls." I've heard some more modern versions using that at least. Kids are immature.

That's exactly what this teacher changed it to, and the parents were furious. It basically reinforces the idea that "gay" = bad and that maybe the kids were right to be snickering about it.

Because of the outcry, it was changed back.

That was a horrible ad. I can understand not being comfortable or fully understanding of homosexuality but that was just mean spirited.

I'm sure it's what he really believes and what he thinks will will him that fundamentalist Christian vote.

Because, hey, the economy and foreign policy aren't important.

Maybe we should all take a cue from Frosty the Snowman and just say, "Happy Birthday!"

Now that is my kind of suggestion :-)
