Putting the Christ back in Christmas

Br. Sean Gonsalves writes: "This holiday season we've been given the linguistic gift of 'put Christ back in Christmas' - the rallying cry for those Christians who see 'Happy Holiday' greetings as a secularist threat to their faith, a genuflecting before the altar of 'political correctness' (whatever that means), and an attack on the very underpinnings of a our 'Christian nation'....

"The irony here is that those Christians who most loudly lament the secularization of the public square often hold un-Christlike political-ethical views, whether it's defending the use of torture and the promotion of war or remaining silent in the face of usurious money lenders and the commercialization of Christmas, which ultimately leads to its trivialization."
