Sunday Sermonette: a Christmas card

Christmas Sunday. No mail today, but I can still deliver this description of a really delightful--and truly lovely--Christmas card sent out by John Snyder of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms:
Santa Claus points a handgun at a masked terrorist on a Christmas card that John Michael Snyder, public affairs director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, sends this year to a number of recipients.

Named Dean of gun lobbyists by The Washington Post and The New York Times, Snyder includes the president and members of Congress as addressees.

The card wishes recipients a Christmas of peace and joy and a New Year of triumph over terrorism.

The card presents Santa guarding a group of small children from a bomb-harnessed suicide killer. The bomber appears ready to cast a stick of dynamite at an image of the Infant Jesus beneath a decorated Christmas tree.

Snyder thinks the original drawing conveys a definitive holiday message in keeping with these difficult times.

Terrorists are out to destroy personal freedom and undermine traditional values associated with Santa Claus and the Christmas Creche, he says. (via USNewswire)
And Merry Christmas to you, too, John.
