Putting The Oy Back In Joy
Jewish Comedian Jackie Mason, speaking for me and for millions of other American Jews, says it best.
We have the right to pornography. Erections are allowed to be mentioned every day!
"But you can't say, 'Merry Christmas!'"
Merry Christmas to all my Christian friends, and take a hike to all my fellow Jews who shame us by aligning themselves with the Marxist shmutz of the ACLU.

There is so much the ACLU supports that is morally depraved, yet they set out to deprive Americans of Christmas in public functions. Thanks for the observation on the part of should be the friend of every Christian: Jews.

I saw Jackie Mason interviewed on television the other day. He was eloquent!
This link was provided at the bottom of the screen:
Merry Christmas! Say it loudly and clearly--while you can.

The ACLU do not like anything that connotes religion because they feel any Deity stands between the people and absolute loyalty to the State(and as stated by one of their founders, their ultimate goal is a Marxist state). They attack Christmas and things like Ten Commandments displays because they can't yet get into the home or the church to attack families' beliefs in those places.
Speaking for myself, I've always loved the Christmas season for the warmth, the joy, the fellowship and the music, both religious and non-religious. That these people should target Christmas as they do is unconscionable, a very few attempting to deprive the vast majority of a wanted entity to satisfy political ends that don't even belong in America, and in the final analysis have proved a failure in other countries. This minority speaks for no one but themselves, a chihuahua that has succeeded in bullying several big dogs into kowtowing to them.
Jackie Mason is great. I saw him w/ O'Reilly on Talking Points about a week ago. My fellow Jews who take the anti-Christmas position need to listen to him instead of the atheistic ben zonim they so enthusiastically follow.
Funny, whenever one of the detractors of Christmas are cornered on a talk show regarding specific instances, they invariably try to convey that the things never happened or that their intentions were misconstrued -- they have no "honorable" defenses for their positions.
ie the head of one org, trying to defend the incident where those students were expelled from school for handing out candy canes bearing Christmas messages, finally ended up spluttering that he was only concerned that they might give candy canes to some diabetic children.
