For several years now Bill O’Reilly has documented the war on Christmas in this country. It seems like every Christmas season the secular atheists can’t help but insist on making everyone as miserable, sour, and antisocial as they are. They are offended by any outward expressions of Christmas, whether religious or not. Friday night O’Reilly and Ben Stein discussed this annual seasonal assault on Christians and Christmas.
I was struck by Stein’s genuine understanding and respect for not only Christians, but recognizing the very reason Christians commemorate with celebration. I was even more impressed as the Jewish Ben Stein admitted he loves and celebrates Christmas, saying it celebrates the birth of “The Son of God”. He even graciously calls Jesus “The Prince of Peace”. He finds it ridiculous anybody is offended by celebrating the holiday. We have always supported Israel and our Jewish brothers and sisters. I guess I was mostly touched by Ben Stein’s support for Christians.
Thank you, Ben Stein, for the lovely and generous Christmas card. Merry Christmas to you too, sir. I wish you and your family a beautiful and blessed Hanukkah. I never forget Jesus was Jewish. It is why we will always be connected.
