Supreme Irony: on the day that we are supposed to give thanks, Americans were showing what they really worship. Instead of feasting with their families, they were lining up in a consumer feeding-frenzy. Of course, as Romans 1 shows us, the atheist begins as one who will not say “Thank You.” Holidays replace Holy Days, and American holidays reveal what we consider holy. The Christmas rush is too easy a target to shoot down here, but consider how most Americans spend their Sundays: lying prostrate before their household god, worshipping the idol of professional sports. What we do on Holy Days reveals what we really worship.
