Pictures with Jesus
Mood:  a-ok
I was at the mall today taking care of a little of the old Christmas shopping, and I saw all the kids in line to see Santa when it hit me- why can't we have our children get their picture taken with Jesus?
I'm going to discuss it with my Pastor tonight, and maybe we can do it as a church fundraiser or something. This Christmas is going to be the best ever!

Hey Al, here's a Christmas idea: Why don't you go f**k yourself? There's a little something known as the separation of church and state. But no, the Christian Right in this country continously shove Jesus down our throats (Christmas isn't for everyone, let's remember). What's the matter, He's not "accessible" enough for everyone?

On this first day of Hanukkah, why not show a dollip of respect. Every year, my people put up with your Santa Clauses, your carrollers, your trees and lights and cartoon specials... But JESUS in SHOPPING MALLS?!? That's crossing the line.

Hi Al -
Although Mr. Schneiderstein's strident screed should mostly be ignored (it's Christmas, otherwise I'd say it should be flamed), he does bring up an important concept (probably not his intent).

To wit: WWJS - Where Would Jesus Shop?

I think if Dear Leader were to include this in one/some of his speeches - especially with one of those cool "Making America Strongerer" backdrops - it could provide that added boost for the economy.

Merry Christmas!
