Political Correctness in Church? Ughh!!!!!!!!!!!

Today at church someone was talking about an editorial in the Charlotte Observer from a Jewish person saying that they are not offended by Christmas. They said that Jews don't have Hannukah Trees and Muslims don't have tress for their holidays. The person said just call it what it is a "Christmas" tree. Political Correctness is bad enough in the secular world but in church? Ughh! A few weeks ago I shared how my "Baptist" University, Samford sent me a "Holiday" card and sent "Seasons Greetings." That was bad but Samford is not known for being a conservative school. Tonight I was driving around in Charlotte and saw a BAPTIST church that had "HAPPY HOLIDAYS" on their sign. I would expect that from a Unitarian Church or United Church of Christ, but a Baptist Church! If Christian churches can't talk about Christmas who can? I'm all for bending over backwards to not offend people who are not Christ Followers. I don't want to go out of my way to offend people. I saw a church group on the corner of a busy street in Concord, NC the other night screaming at people using a loud sound system about the evils in the world. They were screaming about abortion, the 10 commandments being posted in buildings and other things. I am pro-life and pro- 10 commandments. But we ought to love people who are pro-abortion and love them to Christ and He will change their hearts. We should quit screaming about the 10 commandments and start living them. I wish we could be for stuff rather than against things. I am all about being "Seeker Sensitive." I try to meet people where they are. But if we take away "Jesus Christ" from our "Christian" churches, what do we have? We become a social club, political group or the Mormans. Christian churches should never be ashamed of Jesus. I'm not offended by Hannukah, Ramadan, Yom Kippur or any other holiday from other faiths. Why should we be ashamed of one of our most important holidays. Happy Holidays in government I can accept, I may not like it, but I can accept it. But church, not in church.

Happy New Year!

(Maybe the sign changer at that church was a blue-haired old lady who only changes the sign once every three weeks, and they decided to encompass both Christmas and the New Year she should just put Happy Holidays. I mean, you can't put both on those signs because then you have to start using 5's for S's and stuff.)
