I'm willing to bet that President Barack Obama's Christmas address this week will shine with a religious significance that's about as bright as what was in his unusually short Thanksgiving proclamation, which gave a token reference to God via a quote from George Washington.
I defy the Providers and wager a thousand quatloos!
Even in the Obamas' superstar Christmas interviews with Oprah Winfrey and Gloria Estefan, there were discussions about Santa Claus, Christmas trees, ornaments, gingerbread houses and even their dog's Christmas stocking. Obama even gave a Christmas shout-out to all Hispanics. But there was not one mention of religion or a hint of the real reason for the season.
Serious theologians be dismayed: Neither Oprah nor Gloria Estefan were troubled with complicated contemplation of profound religious matters by the leaders of the most powerful secular nation on Earth.
Gone are the days when presidents and most politicians publicly rejoiced in the birth of Christ. Like many of you, I still remember a day -- even in Washington -- when Christ was central to Christmas. It was an America that was far less politically correct, an America that wasn't afraid to stand up for its belief in the babe who was born in Bethlehem.
Heh. As a commie, I liked how Joe Biden went and peed in the manger of the White House Nativity. Or something. What is Chuck on about...?
