Diversity Has Become the Great Divide
January 13, 2014
Recently on a military base (here in the U.S.) – the troops wanted to have a Christmas tradition – a football game. They were reprimanded because the military cannot have the troops say “Christmas.” It had to be a “holiday” game.
What has become of a reasonable diversity? It has become the great divide. As is always the case, the pendulum has swung too far from obtaining a balance. In order to offend no one – we must remain “silent” – a silence that has become deafening. Is this still not the United States of America? One wonders. In the past, in this country, as I recall. Christmas was not a dirty word.
Someone explain? Everyone is so touchy, offended by what has been and will continue to be the Christian’s right to believe in Jesus Christ/God. However diverse, I applaud your belief in a higher/divine being – different in the concept perhaps, but I respect your right to serve/ trust/believe as you choose.
To many, the belief is in the birth of Jesus Christ, our savior. I make no apologies – so why must I, too, curb my desire to say Merry Christmas?
