I'm Richard Lloyd Jones, and this is Thinking with Somebody Else's Head. When I published our most recent program, Glorification and the Christmas Spirit, I mentioned that it would be our last program of 2012.
And so I thought. But my dear friend, Bob Butler, sent along an article the other day about the quite advanced movement to take Christ out of Christmas, and I felt obligated to step into the fray to address this unnecessary and imprudent tendency.
I say unnecessary because forbidding a school to call a tree the mount in the hallway in December a Christmas tree is not in support of the tolerant and pluralistic society we say we live in. My contention is that if that's all it takes to offend someone, then I think that person's problems are a little more serious than simple indignation.
And imprudent because the psychological and social consequences of eliminating humankind's spiritual dimension are grave. As we'll discover on the journey you'll embark on in our program today.
The Psychotic Separation from God, when Thinking with Somebody Else's Head returns on the STOP Radio Network.
