(With gruvvulous apologies to Dr. Seuss)
Liked Christmas a lot…
But Barry Lynn,
Who worked against religion,
Barry Lynn hated Christmas!
But especially the whole Christmas reason!
I’m not sure why. Perhaps he saw worshiping the Son of God akin to treason.
But he was not alone, not at all, in his ridiculous fight.
The ACLU and People for the (Un)American Way also saw Christmas as a terrible blight.
Every December these groups would sue and sue, spending every red cent
On a misguided and twisted definition of the Constitution’s first Amendment!!
They didn’t like religious Christmas carols!!
Or a child distributing a candy cane!!
They hated Poinsettias and Christmas trees!!
They would find activist judges to cause all great pain!!
They hated a lot, for all of their days, mentioning Christ made them mean!!
And God forbid (yes they hated that phrase) you displayed a Nativity scene!!
One Christmas season they stole all the creches, the stockings and mistletoe
They stole all the carols, even the First Noel!!
They stole all the trees!! They stole all the presents!!
They laughed out in glee: “We will show these religious peasants!!”
So Christmas morning came and the liberals hoped it would just be like any other day
But, no, for you see America … they celebrated anyway!!
The Left was foiled once again - what could have gone wrong?
People were praying!! And worshiping with song!!
“Joy to the World,” “Silent Night,” “Away in a Manger”!!
All sung in worship!! Was the Left’s assault on Christmas finally in danger??
The ACLU and Barry and Ralph - they just didn’t understand
It wasn’t the trappings that were important, but God being born to man
But the people, they knew, as did every Founding Father
Religion strengthens our nation, and is far from a bother.
The Founders recognized this, from when they first landed on America’s shore
That Christ … perhaps … means a little bit more!
It is OK to have “Christmas trees” and a nativity sceneJudges can not stop it, nor could even Howard Dean.
So I say to you, without trepidation or fear
May you have a Merry CHRISTMAS and a blessed New Year!!
