For years we’ve been hearing the call to keep (Jesus) Christ in Christmas, and rightfully so. But it now appears that Christians themselves are having to find new ways to remember as they fight off the onslaught of “freethinkers” and “educators.”
Devout Christians Robert and Denise Ferraro of Naperville, Illinois say that they began forgetting that Christ had anything to do with Christmas when their 10-year-old daughter Cindy came home from public school last December and told them that she had learned about the various Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Pagan, Christian and Zoroastrian holidays that all fall around the same time as the Christmas holiday.
“Cindy came home and had a very smart, cogent argument for why we should start saying ‘Happy Holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas’ to complete strangers. It was very upsetting,” stated Robert Ferraro. “You try to raise your kids to believe exactly what you believe and then you have teachers telling your kids that there are other belief systems and ways of life. It’s just disgusting.”
Denise Ferraro had similar feelings, stating “I don’t want to hear about other people who don’t believe what I believe, and I CERTAINLY don’t want my child exposed to such filth.”
The Ferraro’s said that the occurrence left them rattled and a bit disoriented.
“Even in a non-holiday season, I just can’t stop thinking about how other people don’t follow the right God or a righteous way of life,” Stated Robert. “So I had to buy a bumper sticker to remind myself, and other Christians, that we should all personally keep Christ in Christmas, and every other person’s life – regardless of what they believe.”
The Ferraro’s report that since adding bumper stickers to their 2009 Hummer H3X and 2015 Nissan Titan, that they have felt more secure in their own personal beliefs.
“You know, it’s just like I’m practicing year-round now.” stated Robert. “So I will definitely feel more confident next Christmas time, from Late October through the end of December, when I tell people who I don’t know to have a Merry Christmas.”
