Uplifting Movie, Marred Mainly by a Focus on the Bogus War on Christmas
25 November 2017 | by theoneheartSee all my reviews

A wonderfully uplifting movie reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas marred mainly by introducing the politics of separation. The movie's promotion of the imagined war on Christmas undermined its message of humility, giving and love. Our government of the people (70% Christian), by the people and for the people is not our enemy or the enemy of Christian principles unless we make it so. The government or ACLU so reviled in this movie can and has supported many principles illuminated therein. The Perfect Gift lost its perfection not in the imperfect acting, it lost its perfection in the politic of propaganda and separation.
