As the War on Christmas wages on, our host, Josh Zepps, interviews Rob Boston, Senior Policy Analyst for American's United for the Separation of Church and State, Editor ofChurch & Statemagazine and author ofClose Encounters with the Religious Right : Journeys into the Twilight Zone of Religion and Politics. Together they get to the bottom of the War on Christmas. They explain how saying "Happy Holidays" is a violation of Christian liberty and explore the vast number of schools banning red, green, and jolly old men. Is the War on Christmas a fact or is it fear-mongering and imagined persecution among the Christian media elite? This week, an amusing, year end, episode of Point of Inquiry which actually delves into some serious Church-State, First Amendment issues along with some festive humor.
