Haven’t put anything up yet today, because even though I’m Jewish and don’t celebrate Christmas, with everything closed tomorrow and me observing the Jewish Sabbath from Friday evening until Saturday evening, I had last minute things to do and errands to run, just like all of my Christian readers. I will be putting up my movie reviews and I’ll try to put up some other things later, etc.
But I want to take this time to wish all of my Christian readers a Merry Christmas. As I’ve said so many times before, even though I do not believe in Christ, I do believe that America has resisted becoming a Muslim nation the way most of Europe has become and will ultimately be, because it has a strong Christian backbone and heritage. The vast majority of Americans are still Christians. And so long as America remains a Christian nation (sorry, Barack Obama, it’s NOT a Muslim nation, as you’ve claimed), I know–G-d-willing–I’ll be free to practice my religion as a Jew, here. As I’ve previously noted, most of Europe had a strong atheist strain and many of its Christians fell away from their religion and will to survive as a religious force. And Islam entered to invade the vacuum.
While we haven’t had the resistance to Islamic immigration that we need and the fight against its refusal to be absorbed in American culture that is required, we are still years behind Europe because of so many Americans’ Christian beliefs. A strong Christian America is a strong America.
I wish you a wonderful holiday, full of joy, family and loved ones, friends, good health, sustenance, warmth, and shelter. And even though I do not celebrate your holiday, I appreciate the gift you give me every day: your readership (and comments and tips, too).
