Happy St. John Chrysostom Day! (Also Yom Kippur)As I write, a search on Google News currently shows 39,800 mentions of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement which begins tonight (September 13), but only 317 mentions of St. John Chrysostom, whose feast is also celebrated today. Clearly, this is an injustice in modern multicultural America, where Christmas cannot be mentioned without reference to the nearest "holidays" of every other faith, and none. Because the MSM somehow neglects to provide the nearest Saint's day in the Christian calendar to each year's Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Passover—there are a lot of saints!—it has become a VDARE.com service (as so often) to fill the gap.

And we do wish all our readers a Happy.
