O Christmas (or Holiday?) Tree….

Loved this piece by Sister Joan Chittister, one of my all-time favorites in the religion-and-politics realm. A sample of her prose:

If I were you and I really wanted to be a sign of Christianity, I wouldn’t set out to prove it by fighting over the Christmas tree.

Sounds right to me.

  1. You beat me to it! My favorite line is this one: “You’ve got to admit it’s interesting: Say you’re a Christian and you believe in the death penalty and nobody blinks. Say an evergeen tree is not a sacred Christian object and the world descends into spiritual spasm.”
