The best way to take offense is to rant and rave with tongue in cheek. Your mother stinks of elderberry (just kidding)! Or to be gentle while pointing out how much that other guy is foaming at the mouth.
Carrie Rinderer and the American Christian Life United (ACLU) choir won’t let you tell them what to say, but will tell you to boycott all half-assed associates who won’t “Say Merry Christmas.” Lively pop gospel to smooth out the intolerance. (What would JC shop at?)
Roger Weber is gonna say what he wants to say. Which is what you ought not to do. “Say Merry Christmas” is soft pop reminiscent of the ’70s. Oo, ee, baby.
