It's Veteran's Day. November 11, 2007. Five days ago, my children were finishing off their Halloween Candy. I was appalled that I have already seen commercials for Christmas on television. Yet, perhaps even more appalling is the fact that there are those on the Religious Right who feel obliged to use the first week of November to start shelling out their rhetoric of hate against companies that dare to understand that Christmas isn't the only holiday that is celebrated in December.
According to this article on Americans United, it's not just the usual spewing of ire against the phrase "Happy Holidays," apparently, they are also capitalizing on this, financially.
It's a good thing, too. Because those Christians are going to have to spend their Christmas money somewhere after boycotting all those department stores. Christianity arrives just in time, once again.
