Letters to the Editor

Many want to keep Christ in Christmas

This is regarding a letter to the editor on Dec. 8 from Bret Bushaw titled, “Christians get too uppity about greetings.” 

Bushaw chose the word uppity in his letter because many Christians insist on saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays.” I am one of the multitude who is “uppity.” But then again, I am not, because uppity means haughty, snobbish and arrogant; I am not any of those.

The many Christians are faithful, loyal, dedicated and adhere to Jesus Christ, his birth in Bethlehem (no one else’s), and his teachings while on Earth. Bushaw, your letter appears with all good intentions. There are voices that seemed that way, such as those who favor abortion rights and same-sex marriages.

Togetherness is acceptable but not marriage that is debunked. Marriage is between one man and one woman. There are situations, all of a sudden; there is legislation from the Supreme Court or the White House – no Nativity scenes on public places, no Bibles, no prayers, no freedom of religion, etc. That’s why Christians are on guard and vigilant.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
