Congress declares Jesus is the reason for the season

The House of Representatives found time to give Jesus a shout out for bringing us Christmas. My two favorite parts of the resolution:

(1) recognizes the Christian faith as one of the great religions of the world;

I’m glad they cleared this up. They’re a little late to the party though. I was sold on this years ago when I discovered Christianity gave us Ludwig Wittgenstein. Ludwig was a ninja with math and philosophy.

(4) acknowledges and supports the role played by Christians and Christianity in the founding of the United States and in the formation of the western civilization;

Let’s get busy then and see this through. I want a resolution acknowledging the role played by the Renaissance in Western civilization. While we’re at it lets give a shout out to the Golden Age of Islam since they preserved math and science for us during the dark ages. They even added new stuff like the Scientific Method and optics before they gave it back! How cool is that? I think that deserves a resolution.

I’m writing my letter to Congresswoman Johnson right now. I imagine she’ll be receptive since she sponsored the resolution acknowledging the coolness of Islam and Ramadan
