WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 (JTA) — The sound of angry Christians railing against
the marginalization of Christmas has become the new tune of this holiday
Across the country, from department stores to town halls, battle lines have
been drawn over how to mark the winter holidays.
Led by evangelical groups, who say the holiday’s religious significance
is being ignored, some Christians are fighting back. They’re threatening to
sue schools districts that have banned the singing of Christmas carols and
other places where “Happy Holidays” has replaced “Merry Christmas” as
the preferred greeting of the season.
Evagelical leaders don’t cast the Jewish community as the Scrooge, yet
efforts to highlight Christian themes and celebrations at Christmas
historically have come at the expense of religious diversity and tolerance —
and Jewish leaders fear that stressing Christmas’ religious significance
could highlight Jews’ minority status in the United States.
“It is not a movement prompted by an animus against Jews or the Jewish
community,” said Abraham Foxman, THE national director of the
Anti-Defamation League, who in recent months has taken the lead in warning
about growing evangelical influence in the United States. “But the
unintended consequence is that Jews may be blamed for it.”
When in fact is is them who say they are jews in
flesh but who do lie, the sons of satan's shemmyGoG Chabad Lubavitch, the
sofiet reds of the dragon's Sanhedrin
Much of what evangelicals criticize consists of efforts to include
religious minorities in holiday celebrations, say Jewish community leaders,
who fear that adding more religious expression in schools and government could
make Jews feel like second-class citizens.

Rabbi Leah Richman of Pottsville, Pa., received angry letters and phone
calls when she called for the removal of a nativity scene in her town square.
“The non-Jewish people in the area are very interested in promoting
Christmas and they believe that church and state should be more mingled,”
They asked for it....they got it and it ain't toyota
Richman said. “They’re taking my stand as being anti-tolerance
and anti-diversity, because I’m not tolerant of their nativity scene.”
Instead of opposing the nativity scene, some respondents said Richman
should place a menorah nearby. Indeed, much of the evangelical
community’s argument has rested on a call for more celebrations of both
Christmas and Chanukah, part of a call for a return to

the jews who say their God has no Only Begotten Son, the WORD who was with God
in the beginning and the WORD who IS GOD. They asked for it, they now have it,

“It just seems to me that what we ought to be aiming for in America is
recognizing everyone’s traditions, rather than melding traditions into a
homogenized whatever,” Gary Bauer, the president of American Values, told

Richman declined to help the local library put up a menorah display,
instead suggesting an educational program on different holidays.
The onslaught of Christmas decorations and programming for years has been a
source of quiet frustration for American Jews, but decisions about how to
handle it have varied. Some Jewish groups have worked to ensure that religious
Christmas displays don’t enter the public square, while others —-
predominantly the Chabad movement —
sought equal treatment for menorahs and other Chanukah decorations.
The inclusion of Chanukah, and then the African-American holiday of
Kwanzaa, has forced retailers and municipalities to seek more generic and
inclusive ways of acknowledging all faiths. That has led to claims that
Christianity has been taken out of Christmas celebrations.

The city of Boston renamed a tree in Boston Common a “holiday tree.”
Target, the giant retailer, was criticized for airing commercials in December
that did not specifically mention Christmas.
Even Pope Benedict XVI has weighed in, declaring Sunday that a
“commercial pollution” of Christmas could alter the holiday’s true
meaning. He suggested families erect nativity scenes in their homes.
The pro-Christmas movement comes at a time of growing evangelical (Judeo-Churchinsanity
proselyte of Sanhedrin) political strength, giving their message
increased weight and attention. Evangelicals have fought this year against
efforts to remove proselytizing from the Air Force Academy in Colorado
Springs, Colo., and for the teaching of “intelligent design” in public
schools. Nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court have been weighed in part on their
church attendance and their public proclamations of faith.

Even the White House has been chastised this year for writing “Best
wishes for the holiday season” on its annual Christmas cards. Last year’s
cards also referred to the “holiday season” rather than Christmas, and
both years’ cards included a quote from Psalms.
Those who see a decrease in Christmas observance, including media figures
like Bill O’Reilly and John Gibson, both of the Fox News Channel, claim
Christmas is being excluded from seasonal decorations in an attempt to be
sensitive to minorities.
“It’s mostly guilt-ridden Christians,” Gibson, the author of “The
War on Christmas: How the Liberal Plot to Ban the Sacred Christian Holiday is
Worse Than You Thought,” told JTA.

But Christian leaders often accuse Hollywood, the media and the American
Civil Liberties Union of taking the religion out of Christmas —- and all
three groups are seen as run by Jews, Foxman said.
Eckstein warned of a backlash if Jews are perceived as being on the front
lines of the fight.

In Coatesville, Pa., city councilman William Chertok was accused by a
colleague of voting against an increase in the city’s Christmas parade
budget because he was Jewish.
“I understand, Mr. Chertok, that Jews don’t celebrate Christmas,”
councilwoman-elect Patsy Ray said in a meeting in November. Her comments
prompted a rebuke from the council and the local media.
Chertok said he voted against the increase for budgetary reasons.
Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of
Church and State, has been cast as the lead opponent of Christmas
celebrations. He said evangelical leaders are trying to place Christmas and
Christianity above other religions.
almost perfect propaganda, except we the saints of
Jesus the Christ understand
“There’s a kind of Christian triumphalism; a feeling that Christians
have to win every battle,” said Lynn, who spoke to JTA by telephone while
shopping for Christmas presents. “There is a fear that other religions are
going to be treated the same as Christmas, and that means Christmas won’t
have its special place five weeks of the year.”
Foxman called a meeting last week of American Jewish leaders to gauge
common ground on the fight against Christian influence.

Many observant Jews support public proclamations of faith, believing
religion in the public square will boost observance in general. Yet the Jewish
leaders who attended Foxman’s meeting were united in opposing overt
proselytizing of the sort reported at the Air Force Academy.
“What we’re seeing in America today, with the evangelical emphasis,
will be looked back on as the last gasp to hold onto an
America that is Christian,” said Jonathan Sarna, A professor of
American Jewish history at Brandeis University.
Supporters of interfaith dialogue (Noahide)
say that as the majority religion in the United States, Christians have a
right to see more expressions of their faith.

1: Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2: Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3: For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4: They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
5: They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
6: Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.
7: Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee.
“It’s a legitimate feeling when 90 percent of the country is for it,”
Eckstein said. “I am not threatened by someone who affirms his faith.”
Foxman said he believes retailers especially will continue to present a
more inclusive vision of the holiday season — because it allows them to
reach the widest possible audience.
“Jews will not go and demand that Target have a menorah,” he said.
“But they will have one — and if they have three Christmas trees and one
menorah, so what?”
