In the 1999 M. Night Shyamalan movie “The Sixth Sense,” a little boy complained, “I see dead people” – and he did.
Now it seems Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and one-time vice presidential candidate, sees a battlefield littered with corpses – all of them Christian. They are causalities in a war against faith in America. But unlike that little boy, what Palin sees is entirely in her imagination.
In Palin’s fervid mind, the Antietam of this war on faith is a relentless assault on the holiday of Christmas. In her new book Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting The Heart of Christmas, Palin argues that Christians in America are being prohibited from expressing “the Christian values of the season” when they try to commemorate the birth of Jesus.
