This year those of us who cherish the phrase Merry Christmas have started to say Merry Christ-mas to reinsert the name Christ into the greeting. Heres a reminder of how we started to lose Merry Christmas 40 years ago.
On the day before Christmas in 1971 the New York Times ran an article about a new holiday called Kwanzaa that was invented by an America hating Black separatist named Ron Everett. Everett now uses the made up African name Maulana Ron Karenga to show the world he wants nothing to do with White America.

Yeah, this Keranga character is a real pillar of the community isn't he? Have a holly jolly kwanza, I'll have a blue kwanza without you, I'm dreaming of a,ahem, white kwanza, All I want for Kwaanza is my 2 front teeth... just doesn't have the same ring.

What Seminary did he graduate from again, and what degree did he receive???
