The Religious Left can attack stuff, too...

Wouldn't it be nice if the Christian Right was more concerned with the pay and healthcare of the Wal-Mart greeter, than the content of the Wal-Mart greeting?
Fantastic article in alternetdotorg blogs about American Christians in the news actually complaining about something worthwhile. We worry so much about the secularisation of Christmas... instead, we should be worrying about things that matter. We worry about Santa and the commercialisation, when, in fact, we should be concerned about folk getting in debt due to social pressure to keep up with the latest "must have".

First reference to the Christian Left that I have heard... and I kind of like it. Jesus stood up for the disadvantaged... I see the Christian Right as being the Pharisees of today!
On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
Mark 2:17 (New International Version)
We need to heal the hurt in the world and not get hung up on trivialities.
