Even I've caught word of some of these people talking about the danger of Christmas being outlawed. Crap, of course, but the noise still brings to mind the "Where there's smoke..." adage. A brief debunking is at CRJ Daily
and worth reading. Essentially there are only three stories referenced by everyone CRJ cites.
When not flogging the same three stories -- two of which are essentially false -- to create the appearance of a genuine national trend, the media is busy interviewing the same outraged representatives of a few conservative family groups trying to put the Christ back in Christmas. The Alliance Defense Fund, for example, has been cited in numerous stories in the past week, as has the Rutherford Institute, another conservative group.
