Had enough

The Compass - - OPINION - — Joy French-Cole­man writes from Har­bour Grace

I’m won­der­ing, is there any­one else out there who is feel­ing the same as I do and are get­ting fed up with all this po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness?

A re­cent ex­am­ple is the way peo­ple think that by say­ing “Happy Hol­i­days” in­stead of “Merry Christ­mas” changes things. Think again, folks.

The Ox­ford dic­tionary tells us the ori­gin of the word “hol­i­day” is “holy day.” This is what Christ­mas Day is for us Chris­tians. So what is the next po­lit­i­cally cor­rect thing to say? As for Chris­tians, we are cor­rect in keep­ing Christ in Christ­mas. If we’re not go­ing to have this, we may as well go back to the pa­gan cel­e­bra­tion, this time of year, the winter sol­stice.

We have to stand firm on our be­liefs. Re­mem­ber the song, “Par­ents, teach your chil­dren well.” Food for thought.

Wish­ing a Merry Christ­mas from me to all, and as Tiny Tim says, God bless ev­ery­one.
