Debate of the Week 12: Happy Holidays
Here’s my stance.
It used to be that I didn’t care whether someone said “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”. They are both rather traditional greetings during the Christmas season that go back a long way. It is only after someone decided that it’s more correct to eliminate “Merry Christmas” in favor of “Happy Holidays” that my dander got up.
Put simply, the push to please the 3% of the population that is offended by the words “Merry Christmas” by wiping that phrase out in favor of “Happy Holidays” is offensive to a far greater portion of the population than a mere 3%, myself included. Oddly enough, the PC retards who are pushing this don’t really care that they are offending such a huge portion of the population. They only care about the 3% superminority.
Let me make one thing very clear. Pick any stance on any topic and try to find anything that offends only 3% of the population. You won’t find anything so non-controversial other than the simple phrase “Merry Christmas”.
This means that PC is NOT the true motivation behind the push for this change in phraseology. The simple fact is that it is being pushed by a small group of people who simply want Jesus Christ hidden away from public view and hearing. The motivation for this is, of course, a simple hatred of Christianity.
This said I have come to the decision that “Happy Holidays” is no longer an appropriate Christmas greeting. Since it has been adopted as a way of assaulting my religion by people who hate my religion the meaning has been changed from one of happiness and joy to one of hatred and oppression. This is contrary to the Christmas spirit and the American way of life, therefore I will not tolerate it.
It really sucks when a group of bigots or loonies steals something good and perverts it into something evil.
