Five Reasons Liberals Hate Christmas

Our colleague Ben Hart sent us a column saying he thought he would kick-off the Christmas season this year by sharing these five reasons why liberals hate Christmas . . . please feel free to go to the comments section below to add to Ben’s list.

1) Liberals are not so keen on God, period.

Their real Messiah is Big Government. They would prefer to skip the part in America’s Declaration of Independence that says:


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

There’s just nothing in this statement that liberals like — that our freedoms are unablienable because they are given to us by God. They are not privileges dispensed by government.

This principle gets in the way of their main idea that government bureaucrats (central planners) have all the answers.

2) Liberals are not so keen on the Ten Commandments.

All that stuff about not committing adultery, honoring thy father and mother, and not coveting thy neighbor’s possessions really gets in the way of the liberal agenda.

So liberals fight to change the definition of marriage to be something other than a union between a man and a woman. They think our possessions belong to politicians to do with what they please. And, of course, everything and anything goes on the sex front. Sodom and Gomorrah is the liberal picture of a healthy society, a society without hang-ups.

3) Liberals are not so keen on Norman Rockwell-style traditional Americana.

Traditional values and traditional Americana just rub liberals the wrong way. Mom baking the apple pie (sexist), family gathered around the Christmas tree and the dinner table, Christmas carols, “It’s a Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart, are all like finger nails scratching across a blackboard to a liberal.

Liberals also don’t like Christopher Columbus, July 4th, or even Thanksgiving.

4) Liberals are not so keen on Christmas trees.

Think of all those trees that get cut down for Christmas.  Liberals really hate that.  Bad for the environment, or something.

Plus they don’t like all those energy-consuming Christmas lights.

5) Liberals are especially not so keen on the idea that God would become man to teach us how to live.

The idea that there’s a God out there somewhere is distasteful enough to a liberal.  But as long as He is a distant God, not concerned with what we are doing here on earth, there’s really no harm to the liberal agenda and mindset.

But what if God really is watching what we are doing, as individuals?

What if God is actually monitoring all our actions and even our thoughts?

That would be scary.

What if God is so concerned about what He sees going on down here on earth that he took up a human form, came here, and showed us how He actually wants us to live and think?

And what if part of His message turns out to be that the Ten Commandments doesn’t go nearly far enough?

You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

Mardi GrasYikes!

Talk about a party killer.

That doesn’t sound like anything close to the liberal agenda, does it?

So now you know why liberals much prefer “Happy Holidays” to “Merry Christmas,” but would prefer even more just to get “holy” out of this day completely and change Christmas to “Festivus.”

Liberals want Christmas (if we have it at all) to be more like Mardi Gras.

Liberal atheists hate God

Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that liberal atheists hate God? We have seen through the years how they insist on teaching their religion of evolution in the public schools and are afraid of creation science and even little kids saying prayers to God. However, liberal and conservative churches alike worship on Sunday, Christmas and Easter - none of which is supported by the Bible, by the way. Mr. Hart's point #4 that liberals are not keen on Christmas trees - neither is God! Jermiah 10:1-4 describes the tree tradition in an unfavorable light. The 10 commandments (point #2), which we should follow according to Christ and the Apostles teachings is not only ignored by liberal churches as Mr. Hart correctly writes, but some conservative fundamentalist ones as well! They falsely claim that all Old Testament laws were terminated at the Cross in spite of what Paul wrote to the Romans and how he taught the early church as we read in Acts. They have unintentially undermined the moral opposition to gay marriage by doing so, therby impairing the future of conservativism.

Demented

Anyone who can write an article like this fusing liberals and Christmas is just plain nuts. I consider myself mostly liberal and I don't hate Christmas as a matter of fact I just finished putting up my Christmas tree. 

Big Gov. ?????? messiah ???? what you talking about Willis? Liberals don't hate our constitution these are the ideals we live by.

Instead of countering your every point let me ask you this, when where and how did you conduct your survey?

As I've said I'm mostly liberal and you sure don't describe me, by the way I deep fried 2 turkeys on thanksgiving day. The family just loved it. 

I think you're a nut job with too much time on your hands. 

To teach us how to live?

"Liberals are especially not so keen on the idea that God would become man to teach us how to live."

Jesus didn't come to "teach us how to live." That's liberalized watering down of Christianity. The Law and the prophets had already taught us how to live. Jesus came to be the sacrifice for sins because we couldn't live like we should ("All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one", Romans 3:12). He came "to seek and save the lost" (Luke 19:10), to live a perfect life ("To fulfill the Law", Matt 5:17) so that He would be an acceptable sacrifice ("the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect", 1 Peter 1:19). Jesus tells us clearly why He came: "For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” (John 6:38-40).

I appreciate the effort to explain why liberals dislike Christianity, but the mischaracterization of Christianity that is found in this article was the first step that led them down the road they have taken. Jesus didn't come to be a good moral example. He came to save the world, and no one will ever come to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). THAT is what Christmas is all about. Merry Christmas.
