We`ve always been interested in the parallel British War Against Christmas
because there`s (still) an Established Church
there and so no conceivable legal reason to ban Christmas in the schools etc., notwithstanding which it`s happening anyway...proving that the Khristmaskampf`s real motive is Christophobia. The London Daily Telegraph
business editor Jeff Randall`s anti-"Happy Holiday
" card column noted yesterday
has provoked massive support
today. Not coincidentally, Randall has also eviscerated
Tony Blair`s rationale for the extraorinary wave of immigration New Labor has unleashed on Britain.
One feature of the British debate is that Christian clerics are speaking up, including
the Ugandan-born Anglican Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu. (About time - Randall reports three out of four British offices now ban Christmas decorations.) When will American clerics join in?
