Falwell threatens to sue/boycott groups that 'subvert' Christmas

Evangelical Christian pastor Jerry Falwell has a message for Americans when it comes to celebrating Christmas this year: You're either with us, or you're against us.

I'll take 'against'

"They'll be reporting to 750 Liberty Counsel lawyers who are ready to pounce if, for example, a teacher is muzzled from leading the third-graders in "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing."

Which that teacher should do

Standing on the other side of that sand line are religious, liberal and secular organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, whose national director, Abe Foxman, recently bemoaned the religious right's efforts to "Christianize" America.

No doubt, evil Satan worshippers one and all

The issue is a dilemma for the Anti-Defamation League, too. It commissioned a poll last month of 800 adults, 57 percent of whom said Christianity was under attack. Among evangelicals, the figure was 76 percent.

Yes, the President and most of congress sharing your religion is a sign of persecution. You can't marry. You can't adopt. Your faith (even if you don't do stuff like beat the shit out of your kid in the name of the Lord) is enough to have your children taken. Oh. Wait. That's not you. That's what you DO TO OTHER PEOPLE
