Not Going To Work That Way

Those who object to the secularization of Christmas would object even more if it ceased to be a national holiday or if some secular alternative were offered in its place. Of course most of this complaining isn't really religion based but tribal. I don't really think Lou Dobbs or Bill O'Reilly are particularly religious people, they're just mad that not everyone is "American" in precisely the same way they are. Douthat is actually religious, and he's mad that everyone isn't as perfect of a Christian as he is.
