By now, you may have already heard the story.
… On Dec, 28 on this blog I published an anecdote about my son’s class of young school children giving a Christmas Concert nearly 20 years ago, with children holding up letters that spelled out CHRISTMAS LOVE. The story went on to say that one little girl had held her sign…the ‘M”…upside down by mistake…and so the words spelled out CHRISTWAS LOVE.
Makes you get all emotional, doesn’t it?
Anyway, the original writer was Candy Chand and she rightfully called him out on it.
He has since apologized and removed himself from the slate of blog contributors to Beliefnet.
But that doesn’t mean Stephen Colbert can’t have some fun with the story… the relevant part begins at the 2:15 mark.
