Frameshop: Another Year at War--The Empty Chair Campaign

Brilliant! It reminds me of my "Christmas in Baghdad" series that I have been doing for the past 2 years on my blog. -- law

By now, most Americans have realized that the so-called 'war on Christmas' is not about 'war' and has nothing to do with 'Christmas.' Nonetheless, the 'war on Christmas' PR campaign being repeated by Evangelical leaders and Fox TV personalities, has begun to sour this holiday season and raise deep concern among Americans of all ethnic, political and religious backgrounds.

But we are not concerned about which words are used on greeting cards or department store circulars. Nor are we concerned about which corporations promote December as 'Christmas' or 'Holiday' season, or about which icons are displayed in village squares across America. All of these are interesting topics for a high school midterm paper, but they are not what concern Americans.

As we head into the last two weeks of 2005, there is only one war on the minds of Americans--only one war that weighs heavy on all hearts: The War in Iraq.

This year--no matter how we celebrate this season--Americans should join together and remember that for another year in a row, we are a country at war.
