I know many people take this to heart. But a church in Raleigh has gone too far.
They are paying for advertising that encourages people to shop at stores that do not say happy holidays but rather Merry Christmas.
As Issac over at Sanctuary says best: I sure am glad they didn’t spend that money fighting poverty, violence, or injustice! IMHO - I was taught that you are supposed to offer the greeting of your tradition to others. So Christians say "Merry Christmas" to those they meet and Jews say "Happy Chanukkah" to those they meet and so on. Perhaps we shouldn't get all tied up with this is my point. Simply be glad that we have reason to celebrate--because many others do not.
