Merry Christmas To You Governor Huckabee

You would have thought by the response of the media pundits, liberal democrats and some political strategist that Mike Huckabee acknowledged the birth of Christ in his Merry Christmas ad. To top it off, the light reflecting off the bookshelf forming a cross must have been a subliminal message that said Huckabee is more Christian than the other candidates. Had it been staged, I would question the authenticity of Huckabee too, but since it was not staged, maybe it was divine intervention or maybe it was simply light reflecting off a bookcase that formed a cross that crossed moved over Huckabee's head. Regardless, it was quite impressive and effective.

What far left liberals, athiest and ACLU types don't understand is that about 80% of us Americans kind of like having God around. For most Americans, Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. For most Americans the belief in the Christmas story is about the baby Jesus who grew up to be the Savior of the World. The message of Christmas gives most Americans hope and is a story worthy of being told. For those who are offended by the public display of Christmas will be offended by practically anything.

You don't have to believe in a particular faith to appreciate a person's right to openly practice and celebrate their faith. Unlike radical Islam that will force you to convert or face death, Christianity recognizes that people are free to accept or reject their faith without physical consequence. The beauty of America's Constitution is that while not allowing government to impose or endorse a particular religion it allows for people to express whatever religion they have freely.

Mike Huckabee is a Christian whose personal worldview is shaped by his belief in Christ. As a President, Governor Huckabee would be governed by the rule of law and the Constitution. The greatness of our founding fathers is that American law was based on biblical principals of personal freedom and social responsibility. If the concept of loving your neighbor as yourself is somehow dangerous and offensive to you then you are the one with the problem.

For Governor Huckabee to wish the American people a Merry Christmas was quite refreshing in today's PC world where way too many get up each day looking to be offended by someone or something. With that said, I say Governor Huckabee thank you for your Merry Christmas wish and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your family as well. For those of you of other faiths, Merry{Fill in your faith} and Happy New Year to you as well. For those of you that have no faith of any kind, Happy New Year to you as well.
