Poinsettias at Christmas? Think Again

I like poinsettias decorating my church just as much as the next person but it has just come to my attention that doing so will most likely contribute to the betterment of Planned Parenthood. 70% of the country's poinsettias come from the farm of the Eckes family in California. This family has given a quarter of a million dollars to renovate an abortion mill and also thousands of dollars to defeat parental notification laws in California.

You might want to bring it up with your pastor now so that alternative decorating plans can be made come Christmas.

You know, garland and wreaths made out of evergreen leaves is fine, but when you have an Xmas [sic] tree with flashing lights and a revolving stand right next to the altar, it is probably a little much. What about just a simple nativity scene (without a bunch of lights) and maybe some green garland trim with red ribbons, but only a little. And please, leave the mistletoe off of the light fixtures.

Wow. What's next, Christmas trees? This reminds me of the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. It's like society is trying to take away all the trappings we use to celebrate, forgetting that the whole reason for celebrating is Our Lord! I wonder if there's an alternative out there that you could promote so our money does not go to killing babies?
