This guy gets it!

Mike Straka does his little "Grrr" column over at Fox News... and while his rants are hit-and-miss, this one definitely hit the target.

Here's the quick of it...

Sure, it's politically correct, but just because someone says "Happy Holidays" to you, they don't necessarily mean "Screw You" if you're a Christian. I think it's safe to say that the person saying "Happy Holidays" simply wants to include everybody in the sentiment. Not just Christians.

Or did we forget that this is America, where Jews, Muslims, Christians and atheists live in harmony?

Well, actually they don't live in "harmony", not all of them anyway. There are just too many arrogant people who wear their beliefs on their sleeve as well as a sopository for there to be actual "harmony". We'll just settle for getting people to not kill each other.

But we're missing the point here. Isn't Christmas supposed to be about celebrating life and family and being together?

Then why do we always make it about who's right and who's wrong? We do it every year. Someone gets upset that "Christ" is not spelled out in Christmas. And then you've got people on television calling for boycotts of certain stores -— where you are buying gifts, by the way -— because they are saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."

Well, there's actually a reason behind it... and I expose that reason in this week's audio rant. Trust me, it will make plenty of people uncomfortable... so stay tuned for that!
