Twas Two Months Before Christmas

I received this email  yesterday and thought it was very well done. And oh so true that it is scary.

MERRY CHRISTMAS                          
      
   
 

 
 
 
Twas two  months
before ChristmasWhen all  through our land,
 
Not a  Christian was praying
 
Nor taking  a stand.
 
Why the PC  Police
had taken away
The reason  for Christmas -
no one could  say.
 
 
The  children were told
by their schools not to  sing
 
About  Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and  things.
 
It might  hurt people's feelings, the teachers would  say
 
December  25th
is just a ' Holiday '.
 
 
Yet the  shoppers were ready with cash, checks and  credit
 
Pushing  folks down to the floor just to get  it!
 
CDs from  Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod
 
Something  was changing, something quite  odd!
 
 
Retailers  promoted
Ramadan and Kwanzaa
 
In hopes  to sell books by Franken &  Fonda.
 
As Targets  were hanging their trees upside  down
At Lowe's  the word Christmas - was no where to be  found.

 
At K-Mart  and Staples and Penny's and  Sears
You won't  hear
the word Christmas;
it won't touch your  ears.
 
Inclusive, 
sensitive,
Di-ver-is-ty
 
Are words  that were used
to intimidate me.
 
Now  Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf  Blitzen
 
On Boxer,  on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton  !
 
At the top  of the Senate,
there arose such a  clatter
 
To  eliminate Jesus,
in all public  matter.
 
 
And we  spoke not a word,
as they took away our  faith
 
Forbidden  to speak
of salvation and grace
 
The true  Gift of Christmas
was exchanged and  discarded
The reason  for the season, stopped before it  started.

 
 
So as you  celebrate
'Winter Break'
under your 'Dream  Tree'
 
Sipping  your Starbucks,
listen to me.
 
Choose  your words carefully, choose what you  say
 
Shout  MERRY CHRISTMAS,
not Happy  Holiday!

 
 
Please,  all Christians
join together and
wish  everyone you meet

 
MERRCHRISTMAS!
 
 
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas  Season!

Have a blessed Sunday,
Rose
