Bah! Humbug! — 2 Comments

  1. I heard an interesting discussion about Christmas on Radio Ulster’s Sunday Sequence programme yesterday. It started about the “attack on Christmas” by some UK local authorities who ban references to Christmas. One speaker pointed out that Christmas was under threat from Christians rather than UK local councils. He pointed out that Christian leaders like George Bush and Tony Blair had ignored the message of the Prince of Peace by startng wars that have led to the deaths of more than i million people; Christ overturned the tables of the money lenders in the temple while today the churches are silent on the activities of bankers and the damage they have done to people’s lives – especially the poorest who have to pay for the excesses of the protected elite.

    Of course, the speaker was the humanist guest on the programme.
