Doesn anybody know where Shaw Air Force Base is? Neither do I, but apparently until this week it was the ground zero for the continuing assault on- wait, let me check the official website here--
"the obliterated wall separating church and state in the most
technologically lethal organization ever created by humankind: the
United States armed forces."
Yeah, you heard me. That wall? Obliterated. Probably by a nuke. Or something technologicaly lethal, anyway. Wall? Gone.
How do we know this? Oh, you know the answer to that one.
That's right: THE NATIVITY SCENE!
The Nativity Scene. Those frequently oversized figures of the Blessed Mother, St Joseph and Baby Jesus. Sometimes a couple of animals.
Yes, the Nativity Scene is back to do its evil work. It's showing up again on front lawns and porches, in little parks and big ones. It's on postcards, in store windows, and in those little temporary shacks they set up outside of churches this time of year.
And last week, it showed up next to a pretty little pond on Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina.
Clearly, our Republic was in danger.
Well thank God-- er, goodness someone still cares about our freedom. When Mikey Weinstein (the "Mikey" is his choice, not mine), the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, got wind of it he got on the telephone. He made some of those high-level type calls only the powerful in our nation's capital can make.
And within hours, a crane was dispatched to take that mother down.
Also the manger, the baby, St Joseph and a handful of wise men. No figurine left standing. Mikey takes no prisoners.
I mean, was that a close call or what? Some airmen in South Carolina might had seen that thing, for God's- er, Pete's sake! Who know what it might have done to their minds? Would they ever be fit to defend us again?
But thanks to the quick wits and obviously oversized clout of Mikey Weinstein and his Foundation, we can rest easy. Our country is safe from plastic figurines and reminders of why we have Christmas in the first place.
Now all the Mikeys of the world have to do is keep working on that mind-control machine. The one that will erase any thoughts of Christmas and its origins from the minds of all Americans.
I hear they've got a prototype running in China.
