Australia joins the fight to save Christmas

I was feeling left out of things, what with the Americans fighting the War on Christmas, but now the War on Christmas affects the entire global community. Yes, the evilness has spread to Australia! But rest assured that Christianity won’t become even more of a minority religion than it already is, because John Howard is on the case:

Howard in call to save Xmas
By Tony Vermeer - December 18, 2005

PRIME Minister John Howard has made a passionate defence of religion at Christmas and urged shopping centres to restore nativity scenes.

Because nothing is more holy or sacrosanct in Christianity than the sacred grounds of Chadstone.

"When I was a kid you'd go in and see the Christmas tree and Santa Claus, but there'd also be nativity scenes in department stores."

One: What is with the poetry? Two: When John Howard was a kid he could have witnessed the original nativity scene.

Now if that wasn’t stupid enough here is where it gets delicious:

'Holiday' Cards Ring Hollow for Some on Bushes' List
By Alan Cooperman, Washington Post Staff Writer - Wednesday, December 7, 2005

This month, as in every December since he took office, President Bush sent out cards with a generic end-of-the-year message, wishing 1.4 million of his close friends and supporters a happy "holiday season."

If our deputy sheriff gets all hot and bothered over shopping centres that don‘t have nativity scenes, I wonder what he thinks about Master Bush taking the Christmas out of Christmas!
