Wars over Christmas

Blame the Emperor Constantine, as this blogger rightly points out.

That's the same Constantine who would make Tony Soprano look like the Dalai Lama.

A post on a Pagan mailing list had this gem:

But I just got done watching (thankfully, I wasn't at the center but hubby was) a huge donnybrook about Cub Scouts' December pack meeting being a "holiday party" not the "Christmas party" that some parents were insistent on. The event was quiet and happy but the organizers had law enforcement on standby because it has become that heated.

Maybe religious wars are a cultural norm, and we have unknowingly been living until recently in a rare era of relative peace, which we mistook for normality.
