Peace Wreath Leads to Fines


As Lars Larson bravely gets ready to fight onward in the War on Christmas, here's a new opportunity for an attention-getting radio stunt: The War on Peace. In Colorado a home owner is being fined for displaying a Christmas wreath shaped like a peace sign. I'm sure Santa's little army of right wing talk show hosts will be all over that, won't they? I mean, here you have Christmas, a holiday to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, and a Peace Sign wreath is banned? I thought Christmas was all about Peace on Earth, unless you're fighting over a Playstation 3? The subject is everywhere - Peace is even mentioned in Christmas Carols such as "Silent Night, Holy Night". That makes it one of the fronts in the War on Christmas, doesn't it? So Lars and the other Rush Limbaugh clones will be all over the War on Peace, won't they?

Wrong! See, this peace wreath is seen as a protest over the Iraq War, and if there's one thing the right wing radio crowd has supported with all their hearts, it's the Iraq War. They were even willing to overlook many of the fine concepts behind Christianity to help the Bush administration sell this to the American Public. In fact, the whole idea of preemptive strikes and torture is fundamentally opposite from what Jesus Christ taught, but these right wing radio clowns didn't care about that. When it comes to the Bible versus the Bush Doctrine, these pompous blowhards ignored the Man from Bethlehem, and sided with the Man from Crawford.

Oh, no! I just had one of those terrible realizations. By supporting the preemptive strike on Iraq, Lars Larson was actually opposing the Prince of Peace - the same person whose birth we'll be celebrating on December 25th. You know what that means? Somebody call Santa Claus! Lars Larson is a traitor in the War on Christmas!

During the late 60's, my husband and I were living near an upscale Seattle neighborhood. Peaceniks we were, so we put a big white peace sign on our front window for the Christmas season. The neighbors were offended...

It's sad how all those 60s peace songs are so relevant again right now. How about this part from John Lennon's Christmas carol:

"And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
A new one just begun
And so happy Christmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

War is over, if you want it
War is over now"

Peace wreath wins! Hundreds of phone calls and bad publicity leads to a notice the fines are suspended. Lisa Jensen had also been flooded with calls of support and offers to pay fines. And now Kearns and two other board member who supported him resign.

I don't understand how anyone could consider it offensive to begin with. Shouldn't a parent with a kid in Iraq want peace?
