213. As an independent minded individual, I thought I'd seen it all..but I guess I was wrong. Thank you to all of you liberal and left wing posters who posted the unbelievable hate and vitriol... many of you even wishing that this man would die. You opened my eyes a lot more than you perhaps intended. If I ever had any questions about who the true twisted haters in this country are, you just removed all doubt. Whenever I see those on the Left try to claim that they represent love, progress and tolerance, I'll remember what I saw tonight.

The text of SonlitKnight's Christmas message, as heard in The Jimmy Z Christmas Show. --Jz

Hello Everyone,

My good friend and brother in Christ, Jimmy Z has asked me to say a few words to you about Christmas. Unfortunately, what Christmas is, and what it means to me, cannot be summed up in words- at least not my words. Of the words in Scripture, I think the prophetic words of the prophet Isaiah come closest when he talks of the people walking in darkness seeing the great light. This great, powerful chapter of prophecy (Isaiah 9) gives rise to the great Christmas classic ‘’for unto us a child is born”. This, despite the fact that Isaiah prophesized those epic words centuries before the blessed event that we call ‘’the Nativity’’ and memorialize in a season called “Christmas”.

The exact date of the Nativity is something we cannot know with absolute certainty, although intense Biblical and historical study have convinced me that Jesus was born on December 25th, 1 BC, exactly as the calendar prescribes. Nevertheless, not knowing with certitude the exact date of that Silent, holy night, should not prevent one from fully contemplating why the early Christian church identified it as the one, singular event around which all time is measured. Take a moment to think about that.

In short, Christmas day is at the center and summit of all days.
None in history before or since, reach it in importance. Some Christians argue that Good Friday or Easter surpasses it. I disagree, and so, obviously did the early church. The reason is simple. Christmas is where it begins for us. Christmas is the ultimate day of paradox. Christmas is the day when the impossible triumphed over the possible, when despair was crushed by hope. Not the vain and empty hope offered by shallow politicians but the healing hope of Immanuel- that is, “God with us”.

It IS that day of the great light and how great a light it is! The true light that enlightens every man came into the world. As Christian singer Michael Card penned; “eternity stepped into time”.

As I said before, Christmas is a time of paradox and that is what makes it so wonderful and overwhelming for believers and so incomprehensible and impossible for the lost. For one who can see only with his limited eyes, hear only with his weak ears and comprehend only with his frail mind, nothing exists beyond light and shadow and depth and height. For this one, there is nothing that exists that cannot be perceived by the senses and there is no line of demarcation between paradox and contradiction.

It is his loss. He will never understand how a woman’s most painful experience exists, simultaneously with her most joyous, in the miracle of childbirth. He will never understand how anyone can feel joy even in the midst of the deepest and darkest despair, as in the death of a loved one.

That joy is the miracle of Christmas. That spark of light that pierced the enveloping darkness and took from pain and sadness and suffering, and even death, it’s victory. As the Apostle Paul says, in mocking the powers of darkness, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" (Corinthians 15:55).

Can we exist in a world without pain or sorrow or death or darkness? No, not yet. But know this. I look out my window right now, in the midst of a blizzard and I see a world blanketed in the purity of white. I see a hundred colors of light piercing a marshmallow frosting on housetops and balconies, trees and bushes and inside windows, I see trees in a blaze of silver and gold and green and red and blue, shimmering in dazzling light. I also see children playing, kicking up the snow and shoppers bustling about with arms full of packages and joy and excitement on so many faces.

And above it all, set against the sheet of white, I see the steeples of churches cutting the sky and calling us all back home.

Close your eyes and feel the snow on your face and listen to the children laugh and hear the majestic bells pierce the wind. Then let your mind wander in joyous rapture to a frigid winter night where a baby is cradled in the arms of a young mother, as the shiver in the stable amongst cattle and sheep.

As you open your eyes to the shock of snow and light, the explosion of color that leaps forth from the white canvas, you can feel the magic of this time of year. It fills every cell and penetrates every molecule. The joy of family and presents and eggnog and music are all part of the experience. I am sure your home will smell like pine and cinnamon and turkey and pumpkin pie all at once.

Yet, amidst all the noise of children running from room to room, the furious tearing of paper, the deep baritone of grandpa laughing with the grandkids, the sweet smells pouring from the kitchen, with be a still small voice that brings inexpressible joy to your heart. A holy haunting, carried on the softest breath of wind, borne on the wings of the ghosts of Christmas past.

It is that small voice that is not merely the center of your Christmas but the center of your life. Be recharged this Christmas, be rededicated. It is that light, that Great light, that will help you find your way through the coming darkness.

December 15 1983

My fellow Americans:

In just a moment we'll be lighting our National Christmas Tree, continuing a wonderful tradition that was started by President Coolidge 60 years ago.

I know there's a special feeling that we share when we push the button lighting up that tree. It's as if each one of those twinkling lights sends a new spirit of love, hope, and joy through the heart of America.' And, of course, the brightest light of all is the Star of Peace, expressing our hopes and prayers for peace for our families, our communities, our nation, and the world.

On behalf of our fellow citizens, Nancy and I would like to thank all of you on the Ellipse who have given America such a beautiful Christmas present, the 1983 Pageant for Peace.

Christmas is a time for giving, and as we reach out to family and friends, I hope we'll also open our hearts to those who are lonely and in need, citizens less fortunate than ourselves, brave soldiers working to preserve peace from the tip of Alaska to the shores of Lebanon, to the DMZ in Korea, families maintaining a constant vigil for their missing in action, and millions forbidden the freedom to worship a God who so loved the world that He gave us the birth of the Christ Child so that we might learn to love each other. I know they would welcome your expressions of love and support.

Many stories have been written about Christmas. Charles Dickens' "Carol" is probably the most famous. Well, I'd like to read some lines from a favorite of mine called, "One Solitary Life," which describes for me the meaning of Christmas. It's the story of a man born of Jewish parents who grew up in an obscure village working in a carpenter shop until he was 30 and then for 3 years as a preacher. And, as the story says, he never wrote a book, he never held an office, he never had a family, he never went to college, he never traveled 200 miles from the place where he was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompany greatness.

While still a young man, the tide of popular opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied him. He was turned over to his enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While he was dying, his executioners gambled for the only piece of property that he had on Earth. When he was dead he was taken down and laid in a borrowed grave.

Nineteen wide centuries have come and gone. And today he is the centerpiece of much of the human race. All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that were ever built, and all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon Earth as powerfully as this one solitary life.

I have always believed that the message of Jesus is one of hope and joy. I know there are those who recognize Christmas Day as the birthday of a great and good man, a wise teacher who gave us principles to live by. And then there are others of us who believe that he was the Son of God, that he was divine. If we live our lives for truth, for love, and for God, we never need be afraid. God will be with us, and He will be part of something much larger, much more powerful and enduring than any force here on Earth.

Now, tonight I have a very special person here with me to spread our Christmas joy. Her name is Amy Benham, and she comes all the way from Westport, Washington. Amy recently wrote the leaders of a public-spirited project named "Make A Wish" and said, "The Christmas tree that lights up for our country must be seen all the way to heaven. I would wish so much to help the President turn on those Christmas lights."

Well, Amy, the nicest Christmas present I could receive is helping you make your dream come true. When you press the button over here—we're going over there-the whole world will know that Amy Benham lit up the skies, sending America's love, hope, and joy all the way to heaven and making the angels sing.

And now, you and I will walk over so you can light the tree. And then after that's done we'll all join in singing one of our favorite Christmas carols, "Joy to the World." So, let's go over here.

I wrote this piece but words come with difficulty
Is it righteous hatred I feel?

Merry Christmas. So far, this is my least favorite Christmas ever.

Everything added up all together has given me a gnarly ache in my stomach this year at Christmastime. It's not like Christmas needs to be this effervescent exclamation of joy and nirvana, but usually - like I said on the show - people do settle down. I will have to force myself this year to settle down and relax. I am so angry at what the leftist politicians are doing.

It would be different if I knew that 55% or 60% or more of my fellow Americans wanted this damned thing. Then the democrats would not have to be so (I'd really like to swear mightily here) damned sneaky and underhanded and dastardly in their take over of our health care. And, I'd just have to tell myself 'hey, that's what Americans want!' and put up with it.

But we have won the battle for the minds are hearts of the American people. And this perfect storm of liberalism running amuck has produced all the votes they need in order to tell the American people, 'F you, we do what we want'. You've heard my show, so you know how far they've gone to break rules and change rules, even preventing -- it appears -- our hopes of repealing the law. At best, it would take so long to pursue repealing the law in court, what with all of the questions about different areas being constitutional, the law would be in effect for a long time before we found ourselves able to really do anything about it.

Save divine intervention from Heaven
Obama's aggressive anti-Americanism
could damage freedom and liberty for good
in this country, and for the rest of
lives we'd be stuck with what was

left of a once great United States.

Toss into the mix that some democrats like Al Franken shouldn't even be there, and the result is an unstoppable machine of power and liberal ideology. They are so filled with hate, rage and disdain for freedom and liberty, they will do everything they can to end it - right now, no delays. The worst poll numbers for Obama and Congress do not matter. Screw the polls - they will take over and there is nothing that you puny Americans can do about it.

So Christmas has an ugly veneer this year. I should separate it and enjoy the day for what it is, but it's not going to be easy. I am watching my country being stolen from me and I cannot put an end to the nightmare. Sure, an unprecedented conservative revolution is likely in 2010, just as we predicted during the 2008 campaign. But I fear it will be far too little, far too late.

One of my great friends told me, back in the summer of 2008, that if John McCain lost we could undo whatever damage Obama and the democrats did when we took back the majority in the House in 2010. But I told him then, and I'm telling you now, that the damage might be too great to undo. That save divine intervention from Heaven above, Obama's aggressive anti-Americanism could damage freedom and liberty for good in this country, and for the rest of our lives we'd be stuck with what was left of a once great United States.

I was told at the time that John McCain would be just as bad for the country as Obama, and worse for the conservative movement. While I am certain that the latter is true, I am just as certain that the former is not. President McCain would never have led us down this path. President McCain would never have pursued this unGodly power grab, having the government take control of our entire health care industry. President McCain would not have led us into deeper debt and astronomical deficit spending. President McCain would not have bowed to other leaders in the Middle East and the Orient.

So here we are, with the President that 52.5% of the people elected (and for whom many of those now question their choice). And Mr. Obama does not care what the American people think. He could not care less. He doesn't care that his poll numbers are in the toilet. He sees himself like no President has ever before. He has spent quality time with Chavez and Ortega. He wants to be like them. And he is moving in that direction as quickly as he can, with his political demon-helpers Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

Damn them all to hell. If I wasn't so filled with the joy of Christmas, I would pray God to smite them where they stand.
