The insanity has begun. Once again it is open season on our culture. Christmas is back in the sights of the P.C. police. The latest example comes from Denver but expect an avalanche of stories like this to follow.

I am not a religious person but the attempt to suppress our shared culture at every turn in a misguided attempt to separate church and state to the Nth degree is very repulsive to me. They think that exposure to any part of the religious culture that created this great nation will somehow warp our young children so bad they will never recover.

Shame on them for their narrow minded view and a total lack of respect for the individual to understand the context of the season on every level.

From the Denver Post: Parade Organizers Say Christmas Carols May Be Offensive To Others

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper recently announced that next year the phrase "Merry Christmas" will be removed from the city building and replaced with "Happy Holidays."

And now a church group who wants to march in the Parade of Lights and sing Christmas carols will not be allowed to participate in the parade. Organizers say the parade is about the holidays, not Christmas, but leaders of the Faith Bible Chapel say that's ridiculous.

"We can't pretend that Christ didn't exist and Christmas wasn't about his birthday, so we felt we could sing it and apparently that is not in social vogue anymore," said Pastor Gary Beasley, with the Faith Bible Chapel.

"This event is not one that has ever intended to have a religious message or a political message," said Susan Rogers, with the Downtown Denver Partnership.

She said no overtly religious symbols is allowed in the parade and that means participants can't carry "Merry Christmas" signs and can't sing traditional Christmas hymns.

Michelle Malkin wishes to unite all bloggers in the Christmas spirit. She emphasizes that it is better to give then to receive. Please join her in this expression of our love for those who choose to squash our culture at every turn.

I am hereby launching the Lump of Coal campaign. Later today, I will box up a lump of charcoal, mark the package "MERRY CHRISTMAS!" and send it to the Denver Mayor in protest of his idiotic policy. Please join me in doing the same (and if you take a photo of your creatively designed package, I will link/post).

Send to:

Mayor John W. Hickenlooper
Denver City and County Building
