God Rest Ye Merry PEOPLE?

The Christmas Madness continues.  From Captain’s Quarters:  HERE

“UPDATE: CQ reader Dan notes that the Christmas carol madness continues, although along an entirely different front:
It's pretty bad. Especially considering at my 'conservative' christian college, (Whitworth College, Spokane, Washington) the Whitworth Choir is required to sing, "God rest ye merry *people*."
Never mind tradition. We don't wanna rankle people with a *sexist* Christmas Carol. What's next?
- “Frosty the Snowperson?”- “I’m dreaming of a multicultural Christmas?”- “Rudolph the differently-abled Reindeer-American?”- ’Jolly’ Mature Morally-Gifted Nicholas?”
Dreaming of a multicultural holiday, Dan. Back to the Gloria Steinem Re-education Camp for you! (And wasn't it "Rudolph the Recovering-Alcoholic Reindeer"?) Seriously, Dan, thanks for the laughs and hang in there.”
