Two wars on Christmas were almost simultaneously announced. The first was by Jon Stewart, who called Christmas the “aggressor nation.” The second was observed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), who released a new campaign ad for his presidential campaign in which he talks about what he says is President Obama’s “war on religion.”
In the ad, Perry says: “You don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.”
Naturally, Twitter reacted in the snarkiest way possible — tweeting a #XmasWarDiary from a battleground strewn with the parts of gingerbreadmen and candy-cane weapons.
Rabbi Brad Hirschfield chatted with Washington Post readers about the War on Christmas. Read up on the battle plans below.
