I finally agree with the American Family Association

I’m on the American Family Association’s mailing list.  I like to keep abreast of what the crazies are saying to each other.  But this time they actually sent out something that I agree with:

If the liberals win the upcoming election, America as we have known it will no longer exist. This country that we love, founded on Judeo-Christian values, will cease to exist and will be replaced by a secular state hostile to Christianity. This “city set on a hill” which our forefathers founded, will go dark. The damage will be deep and long lasting. It cannot be turned around in the next election, or the one after that, or by any election in the future. The damage will be permanent. That is why it is so important for you to vote and to encourage friends and family to vote. This is one election where your vote really counts.

That was from Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman, American Family Association.  With just a few minor changes, I support this statement completely:

If the liberals win the upcoming election, America as we have known it will no longer exist. This country that we love, founded on Judeo-Christian values, will cease to exist and will be replaced by a secular state hostile to as tolerant of Christianity as Christianity has been to other religions. This “city set on a hill” which our forefathers founded, will go dark. The damage improvement will be deep and long lasting. It cannot be turned around in the next election, or the one after that, or by any election in the future. The damage improvement will be permanent. That is why it is so important for you to vote and to encourage friends and family to vote. This is one election where your vote really counts.

So, as requested by the American Family Association, I am encouraging you all to vote.  Especially if you are voting for Obama.  He has a commanding lead, but I worry that McCain and his people will try increasingly desperate things to scare people into voting for him, and that Obama’s followers will get complacent.  So please vote.  As the American Family Association says, this is one election where your vote really counts.

They also sent me an email reminding me that it’s OK to say “Merry Christmas” (and they’re selling buttons and stickers so that you can remind other people).  And once again, I agree with them, but for different reasons.  They want to move Christmas away from the commercialized day that it has become and move it back to “holy day” status.  I look at Christmas as what it has become: a federal holiday, a time for family and gifts and carols and cookies, a time to celebrate and give and receive.  So if I say Merry Christmas to you, and you’re not Christian, well, I’m not either.  I just like the holiday.  And if you are Christian, take it however you like.  It’s supposed to be a day to celebrate, no matter what you’re celebrating.  And if you’re hearing it from a Christian, and you’re not one, don’t bristle.  Don’t tell them you don’t celebrate Christmas.  Just hear that they’re telling you to have a happy day in whatever way you choose to do so.  I can’t believe the stupid things we argue over in this country.
