I've been noticing more and more lately that Christmas and anything that represents the birth of Christ has come under attack. These attacks are being led by the likes of the secularists and the ACLU. I realize that a lot of people do not celebrate Christmas, and that is their right. But it is also my right to celebrate christmas along with the majority of America (something like 98% of Americans celebrate Christmas).
Granted we do get time off for Christmas and not for Hanuka, Kwansa, (I apologize if I misspelled any of these) or any other religions celebrations. And I have no problem with anyone that chooses to celebrate those holidays and events. But at the same time I want to be left a lone to celebrate Christmas.
These secularists and the ACLU really piss me off. The reason being is that when they do stuff like this they create unbalanced situations. Circumstances where it is ok for a government building to display a Star of David but it's not ok for the Cross of Christ to be displayed on the same building. It seems to be ok for us to display Santa Clause but not Baby Jesus.
This country is seriously loosing sense of itself and at the rate we are going it wont be long before the true meanings of Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving arent known to our children because they will be outlawed.

i think its perfectly fine that people get giddy over christmas. I even like this time of the year because everyone usually stops being an ahole and we get to be with the family more.

God ****ign damnit, WHO GIVES A **** WHAT RELIGON YOU ARE?! Who ****ign cares what the man next you you calls his god? AS long as you aren't harming anyone else, you should be able to celebrate your own religon. WE have af reedom of religon in this country. Millions of people have died for that right.

What do I have to say about it? Praise Allah, mazel tav, and god bless you.

I feel bad for scrooge. All he wanted to do was do his own thing and he has the right to do it. Those god damn ghosts had to keep bothering him , adn they broke him. He had a great personality, but they cracked him.. I cried when I saw that movie on TV.

I personally would love to see the ACLU go to hell. They suck and they stomp on people's toes in trying to impose the liberal mindset of "accept everyone, everything and anything" over all of America. ARGH.

What really pisses me off about America is that everyone is so concerned about being politically correct and worrying so much about what people think. If someone is offended that I say "Merry Christmas" to them, that's bullcrap- they have the same right to tell me "Happy Hannukah" or whatever religious holiday they celebrate to me and I wouldn't be offended at all.

I really hate it when everyone says "Happy Holidays!" instead of "Merry Christmas" especially if they are Christian. That and when they don't allow Christmas decorations and stuff because they have to be "sensitive to other faiths". I could personally give a rat's behind about whether someone puts a Star of David or a nativity scene on their front lawn...it's not infringing on my own religious practices, because after all one of the tenents of his country is worshipping AS YOU PLEASE.



Being politically correct is being stupid. Stop worrying about what people think because when it comes to religion, it's between you and whatever deity you believe in, not your stupid fool of a neighbor who doesn't want to see Christmas lights on your house. That's all that matters.

I'll watch it and make sure it doesn't start flaming other religions...so far so good, we're just getting mad at Political Correctness and that people don't respect religion.

As long as it doesn't get into "____ faith is right/better than ____ because...", I think we'll be in the clear.


But I'll keep my eye on it.

Isn't that against your mormon religeon?

Technically it's not Christ's birthday though. We're all just celebrating a compromise of Christianity to move Christ's B-day to Mithras' b-day. Let's all thank Constantine. Anyways, I think it's lame that people restrict Christmas stuff but pump others. I see it the same way I see women's rights... screw bringing everything down to one level, the idea should be to rise the others up to the level of others (too many pronouns). I hate political correctness... it makes everybody too sensitive.

Not as far as I know. We consider homosexuality wrong (we see it as God does: He loves all His children, but He doesn't have to love or accept what they do).

Yes, we respect other faiths, that's one of the biggest points our leaders emphasize, and I'm all about that. But we're not so worried about being politically correct that we don't say Merry Christmas or don't take a stand on same-sex marriages and other such issues. We hold onto what we believe, no matter what others outside the church may believe. Because, after all, a real church wouldn't appease to other faiths or ways of thinking to gain members or make themselves look good to others. God's opinion doesn't change, there is a line between right and wrong, so why should we change?
