Conservative religious leaders are so pleased with their campaign against the "war on Christmas" that they're going to rev it up next year.
Look for more lawyers ready to pounce on Christmas disses, they say, more teachers ready to tattle on silencings of "Silent Night" and more boycotts of stores for yanking the "Christmas" out of the season.
But one influential group of evangelicals has something else in mind that is causing a division in the religious ranks:
Ditto the Bah, humbug part, Arthur. Did I mention my pastor has a sermon about social action by churches? Individuals can do what they want individually, but having some outfit telling what we are to do as a group, smacks of Romanism.
""The American Family Association is suggesting that adults buy nothing from stores for each other next year. Sliding an Xbox 360 to a child would be OK, said association president Tim Wildmon, but adults should funnel their consumer cash to a charity that helps the poor -- preferably one friendly to "Christian values" such as the Salvation Army.""
The poor already know about this one and have it in hand. They don't buy anything for anybody. They can't they have no money all year round.
