Was watching The Factor tonight and Bill's been going on and on for about three weeks now about how department stores aren't using the term "Merry Christmas" in their Holiday advertising. He thinks this means that people are trying to push out Christmas from the public square, in order to better be able to impose a "secular agenda." Paraphrasing: "If they can get religion out of the way then, like canada, like holland, they can legalize narcotics, prostitution, abortion at will, etc." Not once does he give arguments for why these things should be illegal or if they should be legal, he merely accepts that religion should have an influence on public policy. he even said that "they" don't want religion in school either (calling christmas break "winter break") because they know a kid won't go home and ask their parents what this "winter break" is all about, but a child would ask: "Whats this christmas about? Who's this baby Jesus?" So obviously he thinks that "public" school should be in the business of advancing christianity on america's children, whether or not their parents care for their children to be exposed to it or not. This seems to me to be an even better reason to use "winter break" rather than "christmas break" precisely because the gov't should not be advancing any religious agenda at all.
