Not content with being apologists for the Party of Death, our old "friends" over at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good are now acting as apologists for the secularist war against Christmas:
Group calls for end to Christmas Culture warsMy Comments:
The outrage by some people over department stores using the phrase “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” is a distraction from real moral and social issues, according to a group of concerned Catholics and evangelical Christians.
The group has called for a “cease-fire in the Christmas culture wars,” and challenged conservative talk-show host Bill O’Reilly and others who have lashed out against a so-called secular “War on Christmas.”
In an “Open Letter to Christmas Culture Warriors” published as an advertisement in the New York Post, Washington Times and the National Catholic Reporter, the group says the debate about words used in greetings detracts from the Christmas message of love and good will.
“Christmas marks a season of hope, peace and the light of justice illuminating the dark corners of our world," said Alexia Kelley, Executive Director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good. "At a time of a real war in Iraq, and 37 million of our American neighbors living in poverty, we should be focusing on promoting peace and human dignity in our world."

And just what does the fact that I choose to refrain from patronizing a "Happy Holidays"-wishing Best Buy have to do with poverty and the war in Iraq, anyway?
