And not all people of faith are buying into the Fox News "War on Christmas" wackiness. A Common Good Christmas is a religious website that, ahem, makes total sense to me:
The real assault on Christmas...is an excessive consumer culture that has turned a holy season into a celebration of commercialism and materialism. By focusing our attention on shopping malls and the consumerism that accompanies Christmas, [the so-called "war on Christmas" furor] further distracts us from the real message of the holiday.
