Yes, Virginia. There is a War on Christmas.
Yes, Virginia, despite what the Media may say, there is a very real War on Christmas. It comes every year at the beginning of November, and it is one of the most culturally devastating wars we currently face. However, unlike the other cultural wars we fight (the war on drugs, the war on crime, etc.), this one does not feature a faceless villain. The villain | Read More »
Starbucks: The Caffeinated Grinch Who Stole Christmas?
The holidays are approaching, so get your cultural outrage meter ready.

Normally, Nancy Pelosi wages war ON religious doctrine. It seems that last week, though, Pelosi was on the right side of an issue dear to Christians and non-Christians alike: Christmas.
