CNN continued on it's quest for political correctness this week by promoting a children's book that portrays Santa Claus as a black gay man who is married to another man.
Breitbart reported that CNN host Christi Paul praised the book as a “fresh, new twist” and then complained that “there are some families though, tsk, not so happy about the book’s maybe not so hidden agenda.”
Author Daniel Kibblesmith explained that the book was inspired by “the annual tradition we have in this country of pretending that there’s a giant war on Christmas, and that traditional Christmas is under attack.”
He made no secret of the fact that he wrote the book to further a political agenda.
“My only real response,” he explained, “is that we’re trying to put a net positive into the world and contribute to a vacuum of representation.”
Why must we politicize Christmas? Must every single thing be a symbol of political correctness these days?
For the record, there is a clear war on Christmas that is raging in the United States, and stories like this are proof of it.
We would applaud this book if the goal of the book were to empower members of the LGBT community. Rather, the goal of this is to push the buttons of Christians by changing one of their most beloved figures as much as possible. If the left really wants people to "respect all religions," they should probably start by respecting the traditions of others themselves.
