John Gibson is ruining Christmas

Reported by Chrish - November 17, 2005

He is using his Big Story show to promote his crybaby book and do daily segments bemoaning the "attacks" he and other self-pitying Christians percieve when businesses opt for a more inclusive greeting Like "Happy Holidays". He is making a mountain out of a molehill, all for the self-serving purpose of selling books and creating solidarity among his martyred viewers.

It's no surprise that after his book was promoted by Focus on the Family, a right-wing support group, he received hundreds of notes from wingers who have all suffered slights when their religion wasn't recognized to their satisfaction. They are actually complaining because their religious holiday is not given exclusive attention at "major consumer outlets". Beg pardon? There have been trees and decorations and gifts and clothing since October, for crying out loud. A person can't get away from it - it's even in grocery stores.

Gibson has the nerve to say that soon there will be fights at schools and public places over religious displays, (I believe he relishes the thought) and "loud, non-seasonal voices will be shouting at each other." He has been harping on the subject (all to promote his whiny book) since the day it came out, October 20.

Gibson's paranoia is apparent when he says "they", those damned secularists, have renamed the Christmas break to Winter break and soon will try to disappear Christmas altogether. "Heads up; here come the Christmas wars."

Comment: Oh, grow up.
