'Tis the season to attack Christianity

It's the season for demonizing Christmas, Christians, the Salvation Army and God. Demonizing anyone who believes as a Christian has become a popular pastime throughout the year.

I have known only two people in my life who expressed strongly that they were atheists. The first was a man who shared a tent with two other Navy men and myself on an island in the South Pacific during World War II. At the least mention of God or church, he would get red in the face and express his unbelief loudly. The second was a college student who worked part time with my company. He became upset while listening to men at lunch mentioning Christian beliefs. Those two were only a small percentage of the thousands of Christians I have known and thousands more who did not profess to be Christians but believed in Christian ideals.

In recent years anti-Christian attitudes have increased and become downright nasty.

The most beautiful things that most people enjoy, such as nativity scenes, are either removed by court order or just outright destroyed. The Democrat party even decided not to recognize God. Many leaders of businesses are promoting homosexuality and ordering employees not to say "Merry Christmas." Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin removed children from their families as soon as possible to be trained as Nazis or Communists.

Both of them taught that there was no God. From our nursing homes through our colleges and universities, children are taught to revolt against their parents' teaching. Homosexuals are demanding "rights" as if they were married.

Dope peddlers want marijuana legalized so they can trap people into other life-destroying drugs.

Pray for our country.
