Merry COEXISTmas

The ever astute Brew City Brawler has noticed a certain pattern among the conservative bloggers such as Sykes, McIlheran and their sycophants regarding the COEXIST issue. Namely, he has noticed that there is a certain amount of disdain and contempt for the philosophy of peace and those that would promote it, including words like smug (the most repeated), snarky and condescending, to name just a few.

But now that the Yuletide season is upon us, it occurred to me that I had heard a message of peace before. Ah yes, it was in the Bible. Let us go with Luke 2:13-14, shall we:

13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

I wonder what they also would think of Isaiah 9:6:

6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Now, do you suppose Charlie, Jessica and Patrick, those great defenders of Christianity, would consider an angel to be snarky, or that God is a smug, little twerp? No wonder they're always so angry, they can't even figure out what they believe in.
