The Gospel according to John begins:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
Even those who do not accept the truth of the birth of Jesus generally believe that Christmas is a unique time to celebrate "peace on earth." In the course of history, even wars have paused on Christmas Eve and Christmas day in order for combatants to celebrate the meaning of Christmas.
Leave it to Planned Parenthood to inject its own brand of deadly celebration into this holy time of the year:
Alaska's largest provider of abortions will be selling holiday gift certificates good for services including abortion in a fundraising effort during a Jewish bazaar on Sunday. The certificates are being sold in Anchorage as part of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest's effort to raise funds for their organization.
Nothing like giving the gift that snuffs out life. Perhaps next year they would consider offering these certificates in conjunction with Holocaust Remembrance Day. Merry Christmas, indeed.
