January 17th, 2009 | Catalyst Online, Front Page

Every December the Catholic League is embroiled in the never-ending war on Christmas, and this past Christmas season was no exception.

ANTI-CHRISTMAS STRATEGIES EVOLVE
January 17th, 2009 | Catalyst Online, Features

There was no anti-Christmas agenda until the 1980s, and at that time it was led by the ACLU. The strategy of choice was to ban the display of religious symbols, especially the crèche, on public property.

The anti-Christmas Czars were busy in the workplace again this past Christmas season.

This year the Christmas stirrings started early. The anti-Christmas folks wasted no time protesting the holiday.

Just be good for goodness’ sake.” The same ad is now posted on Metro buses in Washington,... [Read more...]

Comedy Central has recently re-broadcast a 2005 Denis Leary special called, “Merry F#%$in’ Christmas.” It also plans to air this program on Christmas Day. We complained to Comedy Central about this show in 2005 and we were rewarded with “Sacrilicious Sunday” in 2006 in which anti-Christian programs were aired all day on Christmas Eve.
