Polluted Christmas

December 13, 2005

At least one prominent religious leader seems more concerned with the materialism of Christmas than with whether stores say "Christmas" and not "Holidays." My Way News Pope Benedict XVI declared:

"In today's consumer society, this time of the year unfortunately suffers from a sort of commercial 'pollution' that threatens to alter its real spirit."

Amen! Instead of fighting what stores say, maybe we should worry more about what they sell (but of course, if we campaign against materialism then it would be harder to get people to send in their money—which is really what the "Friend of Foe" campaign is all about).
