As a country there are 75% (approxiamtely) of us who claim to be Christians and one would think that we would have a greater voice in what happens around us. In truth, we don't! Either we feel we have no voice, or we are apathetic, or we don't have the courage to speak out for our Faith.
Our government is now looking at the number of Public Holidays we have as a country, with special attention on the Christian Holidays - apparently we are not being fair to all religious groups with regards to the holidays. But, have you counted how many of our 12 Public holidays are Christian Holy-Days?
The answer is 2. That's right, 2 of the 12 Holidays are "Christian" and now people are wanting to mess with Christmas and Good Friday.
Friends, you are welcome to respond in your own way, but I feel that we need to find our voice. Of course, we don't need anyone's permission to celebrate the birth/death of Jesus, but surely Christians should express our concerns.
What are your thoughts on this?
I'd love to know.
