Nativity Scenes Vandalized

It's coming to this:

With Dec. 25 only days away, a central image in the celebration of Christmas — the manger scene featuring replicas of Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus — has become the focus of attacks by vandals and leaders of "the secular Left," Christian groups charged on Wednesday.
While the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights was erecting a nativity scene in New York City's Central Park, the group issued a news release condemning three dozen instances in which manger scenes were vandalized or stolen from Antioch, Calif., to Leesburg, Va., this Christmas season. […]
John Fiore has been displaying the nativity scene outside Fiore Funeral Home for 21 years, and now, the baby Jesus and a nesting lamb are missing.
"Where has the Christmas spirit gone that they would stoop so low as to steal the baby Jesus from a nativity scene?" Fiore asked.

The Christmas spirit — like patriotism, honor, loyalty, decency and everything else that makes people worthy of respect — is falling victim to the steady corrosion known as moonbattery.

Ouch... this is so bad. Rundgren is still a brilliant writer and performer (unlike David Bowie and others, who have obviously run out of good songs) but his politics just makes me cringe.

BTW he's been called on this inanity by his audience before.

Why does Rundgren place this garabage in the middle of all of his great stuff? (That's actually not a bad song but could be a lot better without that "old time religion" line polluting it throughout.)
