“How’d the card-hunting go?” I asked when she returned.
“Terrible!” she said.
“Oh?” I said.
“You know, none of the stores I went to had very many religious cards to begin with, and those they did have were mostly generic and vague references to ‘blessings’… few of them had so much as a direct reference to Christ, much less the nature of His sacrifice and resurrection. You know, every Christmas we have all those campaigns about how Jesus is the reason for the season. How does Easter get overlooked? Easter is the reason for Jesus. This is just one more example of the damage done by the creeping secularism of our increasingly liberal society.”
“Are you or are you not looking for a card that says ‘He is risen!’ so you can put the spooky sound chip from a Halloween card in it and draw a crayon picture of Zombie Jesus on the inside?” I asked her.
“Creeping secularism!” she said.
