On Saying ‘Merry Christmas’

How pathetic is it that the battleground for the future of Christian civilization is perceived to be retail-store interactions? Christians have a millennia-long heritage of civilization building, and it has come to this: The farthest our imaginations can take us in rebuilding Christian culture is haranguing Walmart associates into blandly uttering “Merry Christmas” ten thousand times a day. We cannot imagine a Christianity whose impact on our world is anything more robust than literal window dressing on consumer capitalism.
