Well I have to hand it to the Cons at Sun News, because if it wasn’t for them I’d never know that a brutal War on Christmas was raging.
Although so far most of the reports flowing in from the front seem depressingly familiar.
Mostly more scary Lezra and the endless War on David Suzuki.
Although the hairy hoary windbag Charles Adler has done his best to escalate the situation:
But I’m not worried about Santa.
Because I understand he’s ready for ANYTHING…
Even though the gun nutz at the National Rifle Association have betrayed him cruelly.
Now I have to be brutally honest eh? I’m willing to celebrate ANY religious festival, as long as it doesn’t involve shopping, as long as the religious don’t try to kill me, and most importantly as long as there is FOOD.
So I’m quite happy to wish my Jewish friends Happy Hannukah, because quite frankly when I’ve got the munchies, I sometimes fear I might kill for a latke.
And as for my Muslim friends, I feed them pizza during the hungry month of Ramadan, and then they bring me delicious stuff their mums make during the feast of Eid. So I figure I’m the big winner eh?
However, I have to admit that, at this time of year, I’m just a tiny bit biased. On two counts. First, although I’m an atheist, I was raised to be a good Christian boy by my most excellent parents. I like the whole “Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men” thing. Plus, I’m gay. So when I hear the right-wing version of this seasonal classic:
I kind of prefer this one…
Hey, hug the ones you love. Be kind to strangers, especially the poor and the lonely. Enjoy all that good food. (Don’t forget to save me some eh?)
And Happy Holidays everyone!!!!
