Contrary to the secular view that Christmas offends people of other faiths, the reverse is often true, with faith communities honouring rather than denigrating each other's festivals. You only have to visit the Caribbean islands, South Africa or Latin America to see this pluralism forcefully demonstrated in more multi-cultural settings than ours.
Of more pressing concern this Christmas is the relentless draining of the festival's religious significance. God's advent on earth and his sacrifice for our sake on a cross is becoming increasingly politically incorrect, as it was 2,000 years ago.
