I was watching the local Chicago news on Sunday, and I noticed a distinct aversion on the part of the newscasters to acknowledge that it was actually Christmas Day. All they would say was that it was a “holiday.” These are the same geniuses who don’t bat an eye in shilling for Kwanzaa, a made-up festival for African-Americans, or for the city’s annual “gay pride” bacchanalia parade.
I know, I know; they are the ones who are missing out, and Christians don’t need the approval of the politically correct media to enjoy the Savior’s birth. Jesus, after all, basically came in anonymity, at least as far as the larger society was concerned. But it is still sad, and frequently maddening, to see the state of our culture.
