Rachel Held Evans:
...we've got to have a "Merry Christmas" banner in front of every parade and an inflatable manger scene outside of every courthouse... or else we'll make a big stink about it in the name of Jesus. ... This is a very strange way to honor Jesus, "who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped...but made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant." (Philippians 2:8) ... Jesus wasn't embraced by the government. He was crucified by it.
