"Again a case of reality looking like an Onion article. But let's look at it a little deeper.

Society declines gradually.

The first mistake the UK society made here was getting the idea that Christmas is about "bumping under mistletoe with a special someone" and not about celebrating the birthday of the savior Jesus Christ (or winter solstice in pagan tradition).

After that it's all downhill. Once the society forgets it's roots and reasons for it's traditions and just treats them as another excuse for fornication that society is lost. Inevitably women gain power as the perceived sex symbols and if sex is bought into every celebration and aspect of culture that aspect of culture gets feminized and corrupted. Once women get power they cry rape as power card and means to get attention, males become marginalized, the sexes become hostile to each other, birth rates pummel and a stronger patriarchal alien horde takes over.

I cringe whenever I hear a romantic Christmas love song in a mall or on radio. All these songs are signs of cultural degeneracy. Christmas songs should not be about love and special someones. That's what most other songs are about anyway. Can't people stop obsessing about their genital needs at least for Christmas? Christmas songs should be about baby Jesus or Christmas tree and white snow. About the sacrosanct nature of that day - a day to ascend over mundanity of earthy things like work, money, romantic love, sex, politics and similar. But if people make it all about sex 24/7/365 it's game over for them as human beings - they are monkeys again."

The above is a brilliant post written by Mage in a different thread. It's such a shame to barely hear any Christian Christmas music/hymns even on supposed Christian radio stations. And the hymns I do hear, are completely butchered trying to make them sound with a modern tune.

This happens to be my favorite version of "O Holy Night." I happened across it randomly flipping through channels when it was live. I'm glad I did.

I listen to this one (repeatedly) every December. This guy, David Phelps, has an unbelievable voice. I'm not religious but I love gospel and country music and what it says about America. It's great to see these 'flyover people' in the congregation really getting into it. I'd trust them with the nuclear codes any day.

EDIT: At 3:25, he hits and holds a C5 (C above middle C). Out of control.

George Frideric Händel's Messiah. Let me just tell you that it is a timeless masterpiece. It's 2 and half hours long, but if you're looking for something through which to truly worship God this season, I recommend "For Unto Us a Child is Born," "Glory to God," "And He Shall Purify," "And the Glory of the Lord" and, of course, the Hallelujah Chorus (if you like bass solos, "Thus Saith the Lord" and "But Who May Abide the Day of His Coming" are exceptional).

The latest thing this year is 'gender-bending / flip-flopping' Messiah. Male soloists take the female solos and vice versa. So transgressive! Take that, patriarchy! I'm listening as the announcer asks us to examine how we think about gender as we listen.

Is there anything left that SJWs can't ruin?
