One of the things I find most amusing about Christmas is how all reservations about religion and Christianity vanish. Suddenly it’s okay to say anything you want about God or Jesus as long as it’s also about Christmas. Consider the song Mary’s Boy Child / Oh My Lord by Boney M; it’s filling the airways these days.

Oh my Lord

You sent Your Son to save us

Oh my Lord

Your very self You gave us

Oh my Lord

That sin may not enslave us

And love may reign once more

Oh my Lord (Well praise the Lord)

They had just begun to doubt You

Oh my Lord (He is the truth forever)

What did they know about You?

Oh my Lord (So praise the Lord)

But they were lost without You

They needed You so bad (His light is shinig on us)
