Christ is NOT the Reason for the Season at the White House
The folks at Fox News had an article about the 2011 White House Christmas, oops 'Holiday Card' by Todd Starnes. Of course, as you might expect there is no evidence of anything Christian in the card.
We don't have all of our Christmas cards handy, but we are glad to note that we've received real Christmas cards from certain Nebraska politicians who aren't afraid to wish us a Merry CHRISTMAS. These include Governor Heineman, Lt. Governor Sheehy, Attorney General Bruning and State Senator Beau McCoy. We're glad that these folks know the reason for the season and unabashedly wish us and their constituents a Merry Christmas.
Here's the Fox report:
"The official White House holiday card makes no mention of the word ‘Christmas’ and instead focused on Bo the First Dog based on the wishes of the First Family.
“From our family to yours, may your holidays shine with the light of the season,” read the inside of the card, featuring the presidential seal.
The front of the card features Bo the First Dog lounging by a fireplace. Holiday greenery is draped over the fireplace mantle. Holiday presents are placed on a table underneath a poinsettia – instead of a Christmas tree."
