Saving Christmas
December 10, 2006 By Ed Wrather


The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. - Proverbs 1:7.

He has sent redemption to His people; He has commanded His covenant forever: holy and awesome is His name. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever. - Psalm 111:9-10.

I awoke this Sunday morning and I saw several newscasts about the removal of some 21 Christmas trees from the Seattle-Tacoma Airport in Washington state. It was reported that a rabbi had threatened several times to sue and that he had issued an ultimatum, which the airport took seriously. The rabbi wanted a menorah to be displayed. To avoid litigation the airport simply removed the Christmas trees.

The tyranny of the minority has gone too far! As we know, the power of the pocketbook trumps all in this society. Therefore, I propose a boycott (i.e. commercial/business aspect) in the 2007 Christmas season, in order to save it. Let us give them what they want for one year - no Christmas. All Christians should simply make their own gifts, or give what they already have; buy nothing extra, put up no outside Christmas decorations, and travel nowhere extra for one Christmas season. Allow the people of this country to see what happens when the minority gets what it wants. If the country decides that they would like to have Christmas in 2007, they can contact their legislators and demand that a Protection of Christian Christmas Symbols constitutional amendment be passed. Please spread the word! Please post this on your website. Send it out with all of your emails.

The secular world has no fear or understanding of our God. The secular world has only contempt for the symbols of Christianity and especially the symbols for Christmas.

 At the current rate of removal of Christian symbols from our public area of life, it is just a matter of time before they are completely prohibited from public view. It is time to make a stand. It is time to make a statement. If we will do it together, it will make a difference, and the symbols of our faith in the public area of life can be preserved.

Let us save Christmas in our society by not having Christmas in 2007. Pass this along to everyone that you can. Send it to your legislators. Send it to the President and the Presidential candidates. Most importantly - pray, pray that the symbols of our faith may be maintained and preserved. Let us put an end to the tyranny of the minority and save Christmas.

Those who are involved in the first Christmas, we see acts of great courage and obedience to God. Their acts of courage and obedience can be a source of inspiration for us during this most special season of the year. Merry Christmas!!
Let us remember that Christmas is a most special season of the year. It is when God became man so that we might have a Savior. Let us rejoice!
