Keep X in Xmas

The sheer number of posts today on this topic made me decide that a round-up is needed. First, Benjamin Corey’s post is the source of the image above. Michael Halcomb shared a repost from the past on the topic. Both of them focused on the fact that “X” is the Greek letter “Chi” and thus [Read More...]

Holiday Persecution?

I hope the above diagram by Rachel Held Evans helps more people find clarity about this subject!   [Read more...]

Keep Christ in Christianity

The latest cartoon from David Hayward is interesting to think about in connection with the sorts of rhetorical claims one sometimes encounters from conservative Christians regarding American society. “Keep Christ in Christmas” they may say, or “Put prayer back in public schools.” What they often fail to notice is that they have only allowed selective [Read More...]

The War on New Year’s Day

You may think that, now that Christmas is over, the war on Christmas will cease to be such a concern for a few months, and people of faith can relax. But it is not so. There is a very serious related issue that Christians dare not neglect: The War on New Year's Day. As I [Read More...]

Unfair Tactics in the Postmortem on the War on the War on Christmas?

Timothy Dalrymple posted a blog entry responding to one that I wrote for a previous Christmas and shared again this year.

The War on New Year

Apparently the forces of darkness are mounting an attack, this time on the Christian holiday of New Year’s Day, which commemorates and worshipfully celebrates the anniversary of the day on which a Romanian monk miscalculated the year in which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born.
