Closing In On the Fullness of the Time of the Gentiles

One of the key events of the end time is God withdrawing his spirit and gospel from the Gentile nations. As always, this is not due to God's wish or desire, but because the Gentiles will reject the gospel. See D&C 45:28-30. It is my belief that part of this involves and will involve expelling Christians and Christianity generally, and eventually the Church in particular, from the public places; not allowing them to participate in the body politic or publicly express their beliefs. 

I could point to the general assault on praying or reading the Bible in public, or numerous other incidents of persecution, but I think a perfect example of this is the following story about the National Christmas tree:
While the true meaning of Christmas is often lost among the festivities, you’d expect a government tree to bear some relevance to the occasion.

But no ornament can be seen with the word ‘Christmas’, ‘Jesus’, his picture or a nativity scene on the 63ft Sierra White Fir outside the U.S. Capitol.

However what is easy for people to view standing near the tree's base in Washington D.C. is an ornament with the phrase: ‘I love President Obama’
I would also note reports from several days ago that Representatives are forbidden to send mail to constituents wishing them a "Merry Christmas," although "Happy Holidays" is apparently okay:
A franking commission spokesman confirmed to The Washington Examiner that Members of Congress indeed cannot wish constituents "Merry Christmas" in any official mailing.

"Currently, incidental use of the phrase Happy Holidays is permissible but Merry Christmas is not," said Salley Wood.

So it's true, the elected representatives of the nation that puts "In God We Trust" on its currency are not permitted to use the greeting that has likely been uttered by every living adult American at least once in their lifetimes.

Just another demonstration that political correctness and freedom of speech, faith and thought are utterly incompatible.
