Michelle Malkin points out that the attack on Christmas in America is “is a mere skirmish” compared to the bloody, repressive war against Christians that is taking place in the Middle East and China. And Jeff Jarvis has argued that this bloody repressive war supports his view that our disagreements here in the U.S. over the place of religion represent “a fight for the sake of a fight.”
Jarvis’ advise to American Christians — “grow up and count your blessings” — strikes me as a bit like telling American conservatives not to worry about liberal Democrats (or visa versa) because they are nowhere near as dangerous as Chinese Communists or Iranian theocrats. The premise is true and important to remember, but the conclusion doesn’t really follow.
