Many in the conservative media fault secular humanists for taking Christmas out of the season. John Gibson's new book "The War on Christmas" calls it a "liberal plot." Bill O'Reilly has gone after the ACLU and the "loony left" with his big TV megaphone. readers are more sophisticated, naturally, and understand that de-Christmasizing is a symptom of multicultural immigration run amok.

Millions of immigrants are demanding their beliefs and customs be accommodated, or at least that is the assertion of well paid diversity interpreters. Certainly some immigrant groups are consumed with remaking America in their image 151 the sons of Allah come to mind. (A Google search for Muslim Demand gets well over six million results!)
