War On Christmas Starts Early In Jolly Old England

Our liberal friends claim there is no war on Christmas. Uh huh. Anyhow, I find it interesting that the issue brings together Christians, Jews, and Muslims against the forces of secular progressivism

Oxford city council confirmed the events in the city would be renamed ‘Winter Light Festival’ to make them more inclusive, provoking outrage among shoppers in the city who called for a return to tradition.

The idea has come from the charity Oxford Inspires, the cultural development agency for the county, which runs the celebrations.

Sabir Hussain Mirza, chairman of the Muslim Council of Oxford, said: “I am really upset about this. Christians, Muslims and other religions all look forward to Christmas.”

Fr Brian Van-Dungey, a priest in Garsington, Oxon, said: “I am a Christian and pleased to see my Muslim brothers joining in the condemnation of this stupid and dangerous idea; this sort of thinking creates racial problems and should be stopped in its tracks.”

Rabbi Eli Bracknell, who teaches at the Jewish Educational Centre in the city, said: “It is important to maintain a traditional British Christmas. Anything that waters down traditional culture and Christianity in the UK is not positive for the British identity.”

Christmas is not just about Christians celebrating and reflecting on the Birth Of Jesus. It actually brings people of different faiths together to reflect on the meaning of Christmas. I grew up in an area with many of the Jewish faith. They did not celebrate Christmas, but, would often take part in the meaning. The whole “peace on Earth, good will towards Men” saying. And here we have a city council saying “to hell with the people, we will do what we want.” I hope the voters make their own choice shortly on the city council’s jobs.

    Well, it is an example of these plebes betters reconstructing the social order to their liking. I dunno about this council, but I assume they are elected to the positions? If so, perhaps these outraged members of the community would like to replace this council, maybe even run for the seats themselves.
