Denver Post editorial writer Bob Ewegen is my favorite Republican newspaper columnist. Who, I’m sure, the people in charge of the GOP these days wish would just die. Because he’s rational, compassionate, smart, and can think for himself. His column today is posted in whole below the fold in case the link doesn’t work.
Having bought nothing yesterday, I’m happy to read this:
For years, I’ve cringed at the pagan festival of Greedmas, which kicked into high gear yesterday as “Black Friday” lured consumers into big box temples to separate them from their cash and max out their credit cards.
A long time ago, this season was known as “Christmas.” But it no longer honors the message of Jesus.
Lest we forget, that message was reported by a far better journalist than me, by the name of Matthew:
For I was hungry and ye gave me meat. I was thirsty and ye gave me drink. I was a stranger and ye took me in. I was naked, and ye clothed me. I was sick, and ye visited me. I was in prison and ye came unto me. Verily, I say unto you, inasmuch as you have done it unto one of these of the least of my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Sadly, the least of our brethren are mostly ignored during Greedmas — they don’t have credit cards
Thank you, Mr. E.
