“Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas”, by the erudite Grizzly Mom is a masterwork worthy of a Booker Prize or Oprah’s reading list. It is surprising the paperback does not include some kind of embossed sticker of significance, or a Papal book review.
According to one 5 star Amazon reviewer, Palin’s work is not for the faint of brain. Described as a “challenging read, but worth the effort.” The same reviewer adds:
“With dictionary in hand, I plunged into the sweet abyss that is this tome. Not since Sartre has one done more for Christianity. I can’t say I understood all of it (especially the section on epistemology), but I eagerly await its companion study guide. Good recipes too.”
Who hasn’t received grainy Christmas fudge from a dicey co-worker? The Governor tackles this issue with the same gusto she twitters the smack down upon her attackers. With “Good Tidings and Great Joy” Palin delivers a one-two punch in the O’ Tannenbaum with sassy one liners and her patented aplomb.
“This war on Christmas is really the tip of the spear when it comes to a greater battle that’s brewing,” Palin told CBN News. “And that battle that’s brewing is those who would want to take God out of our society, out of our culture, which will lead to ruin as history has proven.”
Christmas is the Christian celebration of the humble birth of Jesus Christ. Mary, 15 and pregnant, rode her fiancé’s ass to Bethlehem so she could anchor-baby her child as a Roman citizen, as required by tax laws of the day. Mary was engaged, but never married Joseph, classifying her as a single (Jewish) mom. Unable to get a room, Mary gave birth in a stable, wrapping the newborn in rags for warmth – or so the liberals would have us believe.
This liberal and scripturally dubious interpretation, along with the “Happy Holidays” notion that Jesus is anchored to humanity rather than Constitutionally conservative principals of lower taxes, limited immigration, corporate welfare and personal fiscal responsibility that cuts food stamps, WIC and help for the poor, is ruining America.
Every time someone says “Happy Holidays” they are disrespecting Christ, firing another shot across the bow in the War on Christmas by even suggesting that other faiths exist in our society. America is a Christian nation, founded by Deists who had a wholly Christian society in mind.
Governor Palin has intellectually been hoisted by her own petard with “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas”, perhaps liberals can learn to do the same and put an end to “Happy Holidays”.
