The RNC’s Christmas greeting included this passage:
“Merry Christmas to all! Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.”
Biblically illiterate secular humanists immediately concluded:
“The Republicans actually think that ‘this Christmas’ they have a ‘new King’ named . . . Donald Trump!”
This is what you get when you ban schools from studying the Bible. I.e., people who do not know that “Gospel” literally means “good news” and that “the King” with a capital K is Jesus Christ.
Trump’s pick for Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, says Christianity should have a bigger part in U.S. schooling.
ITA. You simply cannot understand western civilization in general or our nation’s history in particular without a firm grounding in Christian beliefs.
