Though Christmas commemorates a major event in the religion practiced by a majority of Americans, the godless left continues to target any semblance of Jesus displayed alongside other holiday decorations.
Relativists who feel all beliefs are equal view any reference to the true meaning of Christmas as exclusionary, while some have called Christmas carols a form of bullying.
A group of Christians in California, on the front lines of the War on Christmas, apparently had enough of their values undermined and traditions prohibited.
Appearing unexpectedly at an area shopping center, the “flash mob” set up a live nativity scene in response to the city’s decision to discontinue an annual display that had attracted visitors for 60 years.
With an inauspicious start, one caroler began singing traditional Christmas songs while standing near an empty manger.
Almost immediately, passersby stopped and began joining in the celebration.
As the live display continued, Mary, Joseph, Jesus, and the others associated with the first Christmas began appearing.
In all, the event lasted more than six minutes and culminated with applause from bystanders and impromptu participants.
Following the performance, those involved issued a statement explaining that the flash mob’s purpose was to share the love of Christ with the community.
“What matters is that the Christmas story needs to be told,” the press release stated. “At this time of year, Christians should be able to celebrate freely, carry on the message, and not be hiding for fear of offending someone.”
A message of love, acceptance, and the selfless sacrifice of a Savior was the only motive behind this event, which was carried out respectfully and to the apparent approval of those in the vicinity.
Because of an infinitesimally small group of rabble rousers, entire cities are caving into irrational demands to halt all mention of Jesus as believers across the nation, wary of retribution, shy away from fully expressing their faith.
The left has so misconstrued the First Amendment that much of America now feels that any mention of Jesus by any public entity anywhere automatically represents government endorsing Christianity as the one true religion.
While many Americans – including me – certainly subscribe to that worldview, there is nothing preventing those with other religious beliefs to practice as they see fit.
Applying oil to the proverbial squeaky wheel, though, authorities often cave to a vocal minority of moral relativists, safe in the assumption that the silent majority of Christians will live up to our reputation and remain silent.
A group of innovative and dedicated believers in California proved that this assumption is no longer reliable.
