Here is a true story my parents told me when I was growing up: “Before you were born, before World War II, a Jewish family opened a grocery store in our predominately Christian town. The ‘good Christian businessmen’ in town colluded against the ‘Jew store.’ That was wrong. That’s not how we treat a neighbor. There wasn’t much we could do. Our family bought all our groceries from the store. Your oldest brother worked there as a bag boy. Others supported the store and today we still buy our groceries at that same store.” I think of this every December when the annual “War on Christmas” talk flares up.
