DEVOTION BY MARK FUGATE

The Real Grinch

Well I’m 59 years old and I’ve never seen the Grinch we sing about – but there is a Grinch that we sure have to deal with these days.  His initials are PC and his name is political correctness – and this Grinch tries to steal Christmas as well.  He’s described in this poem…

      Was the day before Christmas when all through the land
      Not a Christian was praying, or taking a stand
      See the PC police had taken away,
      the reason for Christmas, no one can say
      The children were told by their schools not to sing
      about Shepherds, and angels, and wise men and things
      It might hurt their feelings the teachers would say
      December 25th is just another holiday
      Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
      in hopes to sell books by Al Franken and Jane Fonda
      As Target was hanging their trees upside down
      At Lowes the word Christmas is not to be found
      at Kmart and Staples and Penny's and Sears
      You won't hear the word Christmas, it won't touch your ears
      Inclusive, Sensitive, Diversity-are the words they us to intimidate me
      Now ACLU, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
      On Kennedy, On Rather, it's a national trend
      to the top of the Senate there arise such a clatter
      to eliminate Jesus from all public matters
      And we spoke not a word, as they slapped at our faith
      forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
      The true gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
      the reason for the season, stopped before it started
      So as you celebrate winter break under your dream tree
      sipping you starbucks now listen to me
      Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
      shout Merry CHRISTmas, not happy holiday!

Don't let the PC Grinch steal your Christmas friends-Merry CHRISTmas to all!
