Straight Talk About Fox's Christmas Crusade

Reported by Deborah - December 15, 2004

News Hounds Editorial

The Christmas Crusade has filled the media in recent weeks but Fox has been the most consistant and repetitive messenger.Hannity staged his Take Back America rally in Cupertino, California ; endless stories about Christmas symbols being removed by secular enemies throughout the country; most recently The Passion being snubbed by the Hollywood has been the big story. This week Hannity&Colmes had segments about The Passion and Christmas Under Attack on two consecutive nights, 12/13 and 12/14; John Kasich covered both stories in the same night; O'Reilly has a series called Christmas Under Seige. It's everywhere on Fox and the implications are serious.12/15/04

Where are these enemies of Christianity that we hear about on Fox? I haven't seen any where I live. Christmas is everywhere. My school is filled with decorations of the season. Christmas Trees, Menorahs, Kwanzaa Tables, wreathes fill every classroom.One of our teachers will dress up in his Santa Suit for the little guys and our Holiday Concert will have a a diverse collection of songs including very traditional carols and Chanukah songs in Hebrew.It is called the Holiday Concert simply because not everyone celebrates the same holiday. The America I know celebrates diversity and stresses inclusivity.

Now this manufactured controversary about Mel Gibson's movie The Passion has been added to the crusade. Last night on Hannity&Colmes,
Bill Donahue, Catholic League, joined Hannity in a frightening attack on everyone who didn't like The Passion. Donahue has been doing a media blitz and here's a quote from his appearance on MSNBC

Who really cares what Hollywood thinks? All these hacks come out there. Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular. It‘s not a secret, OK? And I‘m not afraid to say it. That‘s why they hate this movie. It‘s about Jesus Christ, and it‘s about truth. It‘s about the messiah.

Hollywood likes anal sex. They like to see the public square without nativity scenes. I like families. I like children. They like abortions. I believe in traditional values and restraint. They believe in libertinism. We have nothing in common. But you know what? The culture war has been ongoing for a long time. Their side has lost.

You have got secular Jews. You have got embittered ex-Catholics, including a lot of ex-Catholic priests who hate the Catholic Church, wacko Protestants in the same group

The theme continued last night with Hannity who made references to "elitest snobs of the left and their bigotry."Hannity made the prescribed accusations about how they don't get us and think we're ignorant. Donahue trashed the Anti Defamation League and both discredited anyone who thought the film was anti semitic.Bill Donahue announced proudly that the only two movies he will buy for his kids are The Passion and Spiderman II. (very interesting combo)

I finally saw The Passion and honestly thought that the message that the Jews were responsible for Jesus's incredible suffering and death was very clear cut and most definitely tried to revive some negative feelings, from the past. This is dangerous ground in my opinion because there has been so much progress made healing the differences and this movie supports a destructive mindset.

When I was 11, way back in 1958, I was walking home from a Saturday movie with a group of friends. We lived in a neighborhood of rowhouses in the city when everyone was still safe walking the streets.Cutting through a back alley, we were confronted by a group of boys who pushed us against a wall and pulled out knives. They called us Christ killing kikes and said we needed to be paid back for what we did to God. We were saved from rape by a man walking his dog but we were bleeding and traumatized.My experience was not especially unique in those days and that's why I am so concerned that there is a movement to take us back to a darker age.We can't let that happen to our country.
