The Church of England is even coming out with Politically correct versions of Christmas carols in an effort not to offend people this holiday season.
Some of the words that have been censored out of traditional carols include "king", "son" and "virgin".
The famous carol "O Come All Ye Faithful" has also been changed. "O come let us adore Him" has been changed in one U.K. church to "O come in adoration", because it was feared that the original version was sexist.
But it isn't just the Church of England that is afraid of offending people this Christmas. One woman was actually told to take down the Christmas decorations around her home because they might be offending non-Christian neighbors.
What kind of world will it be when people can't put up decorations anymore? Whatever happened to freedom of expression?
Meanwhile, Anglicans are doing everything they can to include other religions in their holiday displays. Hindu snowmen and a Chinese dragon will be included in two different Christmas displays in an attempt to make Christmas more "inclusive" of other religions. The Hindu snowmen will be dressed in turbans and will have bindi dots on their foreheads.
Will Hindus and Muslims start including Jesus Christ in their holiday displays?
I certainly doubt it.
These stories remind us of what Jesus said in Mark 8:38.....
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels.But the truth is that December 25 was a pagan holiday long before the institutional church ever celebrated it as "Christmas".
