How dare they (we)?

In the Sydney Morning Herald a Canberra Anglican parish priest writes:

''My church is hosting some community carols in the local shopping centre in a week or so. To my great amusement the manager of the centre objected, because she thinks the '[expletive] Christians want to take over Christmas.' I'd always assumed that the 'Christ' bit in both words might serve as a clue.''

Being a Canberran, I'd love to know who the players are in this little tale.

Meanwhile, there's always the service of Nine lessons and carols at St Philip's O'Connor at 7.30pm on Sunday 20 December!
