Render Unto the United Nations…

It’s that time of year again, when families read The Christmas Carol and atheists and Liberals misread the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution as a ban on all public displays of Christianity at Christmas time.

Town councils are beleaguered and besieged into magically transforming Christmas Trees into Holiday Trees and keeping the infant Jesus from appearing in the Town Square.  Schools no longer perform Christmas Concerts; they perform all-inclusive Holiday Concerts, featuring selections from Hanukah, Kwanzaa (the made-up African-American holiday), and any other ethnic culture that might feel excluded from the public celebration.

Christians, however, are ordered to keep Christmas to themselves.  Bah humbug!  Right out of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.  Christmas is just a holiday to pick a millionaire’s pocket every 25th of December and give employees an unproductive day off.  Will millions of Americans desert their Christmas festivals the way they did their Thanksgiving feast to worship at the local emporium?  Is this the new American holiday tradition?

This is no new phenomenon.  There’s nothing new about the concern about the over-commercialization of Christmas.  That was the theme of 1947’s Miracle on 34th Street, starring Natalie Wood as a very cute 8 year-old whose mother taught her there was no Santa (Natalie, on the other hand, thought the actor playing Santa was the real deal).  In 1958, radio comedian and parodist Stan Freberg recorded “Green Christmas,” skewering the advertising agency.  In 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas aired on CBS TV, with Charlie Brown learning the true meaning of Christmas when he enters a Christmas tree pageant.

Linus reads from the Gospel According to Luke:

“’8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. 12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.’”

“…And that’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”

You would think a generation – several generations – that had grown up on A Charlie Brown Christmas would “get” Thanksgiving and Christmas.  But no; they flew right out their front doors before the pumpkin pie even had a chance to settle down to start a new family Thanksgiving tradition – camping out in front of Wal-Mart (or Best Buy or Target; it all depends upon your store denomination).

Still, people do light up their homes for the holidays.  For how long depends on how quickly Obama can implement Agenda 21.  Since one of the Agenda’s mandates is energy conservation, he could command it as early as this year, telling residents they may only light up their homes on Christmas Eve.  No sooner and no later.  Bah humbug!

If it doesn’t happen this year, it will certainly happen in the very near future.  No more Christmas lights, even if they are on your own private home, on your private property.  As for nativity scenes, they are essentially restricted to private property now.  That will not last, as one of Agenda 21’s communal goals is to ban all ownership of private property.  We’re talking Glenn Beck long-term here.  He says 2050.  That sounds about right.  Agenda 21 activists have stated 2020 as their goal.

In the Middle East, Christians are being driven out of Arab lands by the thousands and millions.  If Jerusalem is ceded to the Palestinians, as we must expect it will, the birthplace of Jesus will fall into the hands of Muslim extremists.  That such an extravagant church was ever built over His birthplace is a testament to the misguided notions of the Church of those times, paving over a humble manger with stone and mortar which an enemy of Christianity could physically misappropriate.  His kingdom is not of stone and mortar, nor of HD televisions, diamond jewelry, and expensive cars.

Thanks to Agenda 21, within another generation we will not be permitted to own any of those things; they will be taken away from us.  What then will the next generation worship?  They will be without God, for they don’t know even know Him anymore.  They don’t obey even the least of His commandments.  They’re not even allowed to speak his name in public, as the little girl who wrote the Veterans Day poem about her grandfathers discovered.

Those who still believe in Him will be punished even if they worship Him in relative privacy.  In China, it’s an offense punishable by imprisonment.  In the Middle East, it’s a capital crime.  To speak Jesus’ name is an even more blasphemous offense.  “Blessed are they who are persecuted for My sake.”

In three weeks’ time, the Mayan calendar will reach its 26,000 year mark.  The Mayans didn’t believe in the end of the world; they only believed in the cycle of an extremely long calendar.  Obama Zombies are hailing it as the beginning, not the end, of a New Age.  Perfect timing.

For them, it is not necessarily the end of the world (as we know it – which incidentally, they calculated incorrectly) but the end of Christianity.  The pagans will celebrate with feasts and orgies, and worship their golden idols.  It will not be the end for Christians, but the end of the world for them.  They just don’t know it.
