The War On Christmas

As many of you know, I’ve spent a great deal a decent amount a lot some time declaring that the War on Christmas is bullshit. In the past, I’ve hinted that it’s a smokescreen perpetrated by a certain news channel to blind the masses to how they’re getting screwed or a ploy by a cynical media whore […]

Much Ado About Nothing?

On Monday, I weighed in on the Starbucks holiday cup controversy that, it turns out, isn’t all that controversial. At least, that’s what some folks are trying to say. Conservatives are claiming that no one is upset about Starbucks decision to go with an unadorned red cup this holiday season in place of the more […]

The Battle Of The Cup

Apparently, this is what a “war on Christmas” looks like. I had originally planned to start this piece by telling you that the conservative’s “War on Christmas” has started early this year, thanks to Starbucks’ new minimalist holiday cup design. Unless you live under a rock, however, you already know that because “The Battle Of The […]

I’m Dreaming Of A White(washed) Christmas?

Well, I did it, beloved. I made it all the way through Advent without talking about Christmas once (okay, so maybe I mentioned once or twice, But, still…). But, now that the Christmas season is here, I can yammer away as much as I want and not worry that some damn high-church liturgy freak will […]

Happy Effin’ Holidays

Ah, yes, Christmas is almost upon us((I almost said it was “the Christmas season is here”, but didn’t because pedantic liturgy nut would’ve felt the need to correct me with “It’s Advent! Christmas doesn’t start until Christmas Day.”)), which means some people have the their panties in a wad. Well, that’s not strictly true, since the […]

Jesus and Santa

Well, the heathens are at it again. The latest shot fired in the war on Christmas involves Santa Claus and Jesus. Now, as much as I hate having that fat pagan’s name mentioned in the same sentence as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I can’t let this attack go by without comment. What am […]

Merry CHRIST-mas

What with the War on Christmas and all, it is crucial that you let everyone know you’re a true Christian. Heck that’s tough on a regular day; doing so while celebrating the birth of our LordSaviorJesusChrist adds a whole new dimension of difficulty; standing out from the crowd of heathens who pretend to be Christians by celebrating […]

Happy Holidays? I Think Not

It’s that time of year again: Christmas, when the secular humanists, atheists and other equally Satanic unbelievers come out of the woodwork to attack this most holy of seasons. That’s right, beloved, the war on Christmas is hot again! First, it was “Christian academic” (like those two words actually belong together) Diana Butler-Bass with her […]

War on Christmas?

As usual for this time of year, conservatives have trotted out their War on Christmas meme. Well, let’s say FoxNews has trotted it out, because I can’t find that much about this supposed war from other conservative sources. But, considering how ubiquitous Fox is on the conservative front, that’s not really saying all that much. They’re […]

Jesus Is the Reason for the Season?

Actually, he’s kinda not, but you’re going to hear this a lot for the next few weeks.  Especially since the official propaganda apparatus of the Republican Party (Fox News) claims there”s a war on Christmas.  Plus, Rick Perry has decided that the culture wars give him the best shot at eating into Newt Gingrich’s lead […]
