Want me a Merry Christmas.
At a time whilst Christian values are challenged--when the greeting "Merry Christmas" has been changed by means of the supposedly much less offensive "Happy Holidays"--Governor Sarah Palin makes the case for bringing again the liberty to specific the spiritual spirit of the season.
In her bestselling books, Going Rogue and America through Heart, Palin has published how her robust Christian religion has guided her lifestyles and kinfolk. Now, in Good Tidings and nice Joy, she discusses one in every of Christianity's such a lot sacred celebrations, and the way the vacation has been robbed of its which means and precise culture by means of the pressures of political correctness.
Palin defends the significance of conserving Jesus Christ in Christmas - even if in public screens, tuition concert events, and pageants, or in our hearts - and grants a pointy rebuke to today's society for the homogenization of the vacation season. Sharing own stories from Christmases in the course of her adolescence, she illustrates why she holds the party of Jesus Christ's Nativity so dear.
Good Tidings and nice Joy revisits our conventional roots and the genuine that means of Christmas. it's a name to motion to listeners to protect and overtly rejoice the thrill in their Christianity, and to claim to each other, "Merry Christmas!"

178–9: Moule, pp. 152–64. The case of Uthred of Bolden is unusual in that we know the identity of both accuser and accused; condemnations and censures issued in 1277, 1284, 1286, 1315, and 1366 all avoided specifying the identity of the author of the propositions, even in cases such as 1286 and 1366 when the condemning authority was the Archbishop of Canterbury acting outside of the university. In 1357, the author of the censured articles was partially identiﬁed (his last name and order being omitted but probably not intentionally), but in this case, the purpose of the censure was distinctly to punish John Kedington for having oﬀended the university politically.
If Wyclif and Gaunt had no arrangement before February of 1377, how are we to explain Wyclif ’s summons to the council and Gaunt’s subsequent decision to intervene in the matter of Westbury, followed soon by Wyclif ’s decision to begin preaching his political theories in London? It could be argued that Wyclif ’s preaching had created enough of a stir to force Courtenay and the other bishops to act, but to strip the incident of the obvious political elements is to miss the deeper context of the situation and to leave many important questions unanswered.
There are also at least two other John Wyclifs in Oxford in the 1350s and 1360s. We must either assume that the Wyclif family was an extremely large one, or more likely that “Wyclif ” was in use by more than one family. 39 Workman, Dahmus, and most other earlier scholars accept the identiﬁcation with the John Wyclif who became the lord of Wyclif. More recent scholars, including Catto, Wilks, and Hudson and Kenny, all favor one of the two men ordained in 1351, but have not advanced any argument against the traditional identiﬁcation.
