Today’s highly interesting read (01/01/23): Why Biden’s Christmas Message Matters

“Readers are leaders.”
—Ronald Reagan

Imagine being a speechwriter for a so-called “devout Catholic” president and being asked to write a Christmas speech. It sounded like the first instruction was: Don’t say the words “Jesus Christ.”

There’s mention of “the birth of a child — a child Christians believe to be the son of God; miraculously now, here among us on Earth, bringing hope, love and peace and joy to the world. There are citations of “O Holy Night” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” but there’s no “Jesus.”
—Tim Graham is director of media analysis for the Media Research Center

On this Sunday today’s read is from Georgiana Constantin-Parke, the Commentary Editor for CNS News. She has a Ph.D. in Political Science. Here’s an excerpt:

He is, somehow, the President of the United States. 

He is making history every day, through what he signs into law, what he says, what he does, and what he does not do. And this is all for the better or (as most often has been the case) for the worse.

Thus, the importance of his Chroistmas message is great, because of what he expresses as president, but also because of what he is showing us of the workings of his administration and all those who are part of the system that supports him.

So what was his message?
