In 2007,* NPR aired a Christmas special that included its favorite Christmas stories told by some of its favorite authors and contributors. The special included Scott Simon telling a new version of the birth of Jesus, complete with FEMA and Katrina references, as well as hybrid cars and the politically correct “wise people” instead of “wise men.”

So why talk about something three years old? Well, NPR is once again featuring the special under its “Holidays 2010” and “NPR’s Holiday Favorites” categories.

When we in Christian Radio face new threatening regulations that will limit our freedom to share the gospel, I wonder if NPR will will continue to be the progressives’ “protected child”?
