Jesse Jackson: I Am Disgusted That Christmas Is Currently A Celebration of Consumerism, With People Forgetting The Real Reason For The Season, Which Is, Of Course, Hardcore Leftist Class Warfare Political Agitation

It ought to be a "poor people's Holy Day," he observes.

Hm. I kinda thought it was. A poor people's holy day, a middle class person's holy day, a rich man's holy day. So long as they were Christian, of course, and interested in marking the day of celebration of Christ's birth.

But it turns out it should be a poor people's day of grievances.

Like Festivus, except with much more Marxism.

There is a tradition in some European countries that many (not all, but many) of the official leaders of the faith are kind of agnostic. They just took a job as a clergyman because their father had, or they had tested well for it in school, or their was an opening. It was just a gig to them.

And Jesse Jackson?

Supposedly he's a Reverend. But I never hear him mention Jesus, except in the context of declaring Jesus' preferences on marginal tax rate. Jesus, per se, doesn't seem to interest him.
