Scrooge Has A Law Degree in America
The Ghost of Christmas Past
For decades America has celebrated Christmas with plays, music, candles, lights, trees and, yes, gifts. All of that to remember the birth of a tiny baby in Bethlehem of Judea some 2,000 years ago.
Despite our annual celebrations by people from every faith and every ethnicity, over the last 100 years, Scrooge-like grinches with law degrees or money to hire them have declared all of our traditions as disgusting and harmful. So disgusting in fact that they must be banned from public places.
The sound of "BAH! HUMBUG! is heard throughout the land. It is replacing Silver Bells and Silent Night! Yes, the Charlie Brown Christmas has been banned from public schools lest the kids hear Linus speak for two minutes about shepherds in the field watching their flocks.
And, to perhaps top it all off, A Christmas Carol written by Charles Dickens over a century ago is found by a local school board to be far to disgusting for little ears. Yes, I admit that a sick, crippled little child in the play actually says, "God bless us everyone" and that simple reading could send a Scrooge-like character some place might become overcome with fright and faint from seeing and hearing a crippled boy speak of God's blessings.
Next, Scrooge Lawyers with sue to stop lights in the window because light best represents Jesus coming into the world.
My books and videos always bring light into your life.
