What do Ebenezer Scrooge, Oogie Boogie, and the Grinch have in common with Dr. Anthony Fauci? They have all tried to stop Christmas.
In a CBS interview last Monday, Fauci noted that it is “too soon to tell” if families can gather for Christmas this coming December.
But no news interview, no public disapproval, and no disease will ever be able to stop the gift of Christmas.
Americans don’t need the government’s approval to celebrate Christmas with their families.
Christmas marks the arrival of God’s only Son on Earth. Nothing can stop that. Not a villain in a children’s story, nor a tyrannical king, nor a big green monster, nor Fauci.
During World War I, soldiers on both sides of the Western Front ceased fire and crossed no-man’s land to celebrate Christmas together. If soldiers trying to kill each other can stop fighting to celebrate Christmas, why would we let Fauci ruin our holiday?
Modern Americans may not face the threat of flamethrowers and machine-gun fire, but the principle remains: This is about freedom — the freedom to assemble and the freedom of religion.
America was settled by pilgrims evading religious restrictions. Are we now to bow to a government that advocates for the same domination of its citizens?
No one voted Fauci into office. No one crowned him with pomp and circumstance and he certainly has no divine authority to rule.
The Constitution was designed to protect citizens from tyranny. No government, much less one dedicated to natural rights, should declare how we ought to observe religious holidays.
Americans have the freedom to choose what to do with their own lives. We have the freedom to make decisions without the stench of tyrannical opposition and to gather without the 6‑foot “no-man’s land” we’ve been operating with for months.
This Dec. 25, remember your freedom. Ignore the politics. Turn off the news. Walk across the no man’s land of government recommendations, and praise God for the divine gift that is Christmas.
