'Tis the season...


I had to share this. Apparently, a group of University of Texas students have set up an "ACLU nativity scene" on their campus. What, exactly, does an ACLU nativity scene look like? According to the group's release:

"We've got Gary and Joseph instead of Mary and Joseph in order to symbolize ACLU support for homosexual marriage, and of course there isn't a Jesus in the manger," said [Young Conservatives of Texas] Chair Tony McDonald.

"The three Wise Men are Lenin, Marx, and Stalin because the founders of the ACLU were strident supporters of Soviet style Communism. The whole scene is a tongue-in-cheek way of showing the many ways that the ACLU and the far left are out of touch with the values of mainstream America."

The display includes a terrorist shepherd and an angel in the form of Nancy Pelosi.


I must say I prefer things like this that are at least amusing to the routine "you are all going to hell!!" emails. At least this involved some construction skills.

Kind of makes me want to make my "evolution manger" scene, with dinosaurs and pre-human figures.

It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant folks like that are. You want Jesus in a manger? Great, put him on your front lawn, but NOT on public property.

And if you DO put Jesus in a manger, don't make him a blond-haired, blue-eyed Aryan.

Not bad for a bunch of conservatives. Maybe they can come up with something creative for the local gay pride parade.

How about a "what me worry" Alfered E. Jesus in the the cradle?

This isn't bad for a bunch of conservatives, but maybe they should not be encourage down the path of satire:

A conservative, student-run journal at Tufts university published a satirical Christmas carol that ridiculed black students and campus affirmative action policies, then issued an apology after some students called on the school to stop funding the journal.

The carol, entitled, "O Come All Ye Black Folk," was published in the most recent edition of the Primary Source, which bills itself as "the journal of conservative thought at Tufts University."

This makes me want to decorate. Next year I may actually get into this holiday.
