Who Would You Rather Offend? – Commentary by Frank Gillispie 12/10/09
What kind of things offend you? As some of you know, it is very hard to offend a redneck. We rednecks have a level of self
confidence that shields us from most insults. But there are a couple of things that really get our dander up.
One of them is
people who go around looking for things to be offended about. I am almost equally offended by those who bow down to the
blackmailers who threaten to call people bad names if they dare disagree with them.
Take the example of so called Atheist.
They run around threatening to file law suits against any public or private business or
office that dares to display Christmas decorations because the handful of non believers in America might be offended. And far
too many government offices, schools and even private companies cave in to their demands and remove anything suggestive of
Christmas from their displays. Christmas trees have to become “holiday trees.” Singing of Christmas carols are forbidden. Some
of them even refuse to allow Santa clause or candy canes.
The question is, who is offended most, those who oppose Christmas, or those who support the holiday. I talk to a lot of people.
I can tell you that far more people are offended when Christmas is taken down, than those who are offended when it is put up.
Why do you suppose all these complainers are offended by Christmas. I mean the real reason. I think it is a power play. They know
that their anti-religious stance will always be a minority position. The vast majority of Americans reject their non-belief. That
leaves them with a justifiable feeling of inadequacy. They just cannot convince many people to adopt their position. So, rather
than try to win points through discussion and debate, they decide to force the issue. They have no respect for the opinions of
the majority. In their arrogant minds, they have the right, or even the responsibility to force their opinions on the nation by
what ever tactic they can come up with.
They don’t care about the Constitution, they twist and distort it as a way of forcing their opinion. They do not care about the
opinion of the majority. Since they are so superior to the rest of us, anyone who agrees with the majority is weak and deserves
to be punished.
Now back to my original question. Who would you rather offend, the arrogant elitist minority, or the massive majority of
believers who want to celebrate the birth of Christ? For clearly, you have to offend one or the other. You choose.
