Host: Josh Zepps
As the War on Christmas wages on, our host Josh Zepps interviews Rob Boston, Senior Policy Analyst for Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, editor of Church & State magazine, and author of Close Encounters with the Religious Right: Journeys into the Twilight Zone of Religion and Politics and the upcoming Taking Liberties: Why Religious Freedom Doesn't Give You the Right to Tell Other People What to Do.
Together they get to the bottom of the War on Christmas. They explain how saying "Happy Holidays" is a violation of Christian liberty and explore the vast number of schools banning red, green, and jolly old men.
Is the War on Christmas a fact or is it fear-mongering and imagined persecution among the Christian media elite? This week, an amusing year-end episode of Point of Inquiry which actually delves into some serious Church-State, First Amendment issues along with some festive humor.
