It’s no real secret that oppression still exists in today’s world. Races can be oppressed, genders can be oppressed, and religions can be oppressed as well. So is it fair to say that the Christian religion is being oppressed around the holiday season?
The entire idea of this perception of oppression, or “War on Christmas”, is a little absurd. People all over are outraged by what they deem to be “fired shots” at Christianity and, more specifically, Christmas itself.
One of the largest examples of the collective backlash surrounding this came from simply trying to acknowledge other holidays throughout the season. In December of 2015, Starbucks released a simple red cup instead of their traditionally Christmas themed cups.
