They had their Christmas cards up.

NOT ONE SHOWED JESUS, MARY, JOSEPH, THE WISE MEN, A NATIVITY, A STAR OF BETHLEHEM.

THERE WERE NO RELIGIOUS CARDS WHATSOEVER EITHER.


Atheism at its best.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 990186


^^^^this

I own a business and each year we send out a notice that we will be closed the week of Christmas in order for our employees to spend time with their families. Each year we end it with " May God bless you in the up coming year and have Merry CHRISTmas". It never fails that I have to field at least 1 call from a customer who is upset or going to cancel service because they don't appreciate us cramming "Jesus" down their throat!

It's at this precise moment that being a business owner is priceless:) I tell them that I am not a man of religion, but a man of faith and that everything I have including my business is thru the grace of God and God only and I'm sorry if they are offended. If that doesn't work and their still unhappy..... I will refer them to another company.
 Quoting: AR 15-SPECIALIST


Good for you brother. I tell every manager that will not allow the emyees to say Merry CHRISTMAS, and that stock their stores with CHRISTMAS things,not one of which has the word Christmas on it exactly what I think and that I will never spend a penney in their store. I also poi.t out how tbeir halloween aisles get bigger every satanic holiday,

There's something that sounds so sacrilegious in saying "a god damned Christian holiday", lol!

But I hear ya, Trin. It's boring. I'm a musician and I just bristle when groups insist on changing words to old music because it is "no longer politically correct". I do the programs and posters for our community band and as long as I am secretary and graphic artist, I WILL print Merry CHRISTMAS, god dammit!
 Quoting: Kat Mama 27600645


Along with everything I posted above; I too belive Christmas is a christian holiday, traditionally; and if you want to keep it that way, do so...

Reality is, it is a way for corporations to boost their 4th quarter earnings; close out the year with 'beat by a penny'. Face it; thts what christmas is; to our government, and to most people.

I wouldnt worry about the fundamental "story" of christmas being lost; it is an INTEGRAL part of christmas. In this respect, I agree with OP that these aspects of christmas need be remembered; but not 'forced' or 'pushed' onto others, as christians are always doing.

I find it strange that Jesus was born on a set date, Dec. 25 but his resurrection happens at different times during easter. Easter coincides with the spring solstice. If Christ was born on a certain day, he should be ressurected on a certain day.

Crazy. You Christians are just as bad as radical muslims. Really. A 2000 year old text that stiffles critical thinking and rational thought. A text that tells me to punish my wife is she is raped. A text that says its ok to sell my wife for two goats and a sheep. A archaic book that says some imaginary all knowing being Loves Me but If I do do his bidding I`ll burn eternally in hell.

Thats crazy and you are insane if you believe fucking fairy tells as an adult.

One passage tells it all. The Bible was made to control and brainwash populations.

Romans 13

Obey the government, for God is the one who put it there. All governments have been placed in power by God. 2 So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow. 3 For the authorities do not frighten people who are doing right, but they frighten those who do wrong. So do what they say, and you will get along well. 4 The authorities are sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for you will be punished. The authorities are established by God for that very purpose, to punish those who do wrong. 5 So you must obey the government for two reasons: to keep from being punished and to keep a clear conscience. 6 Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid so they can keep on doing the work God intended them to do. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and import duties, and give respect and honor to all to whom it is due. 8 Pay all your debts, except the debt of love for others. You can never finish paying that! If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill all the requirements of God's law. 9 For the commandments against adultery and murder and stealing and coveting -- and any other commandment -- are all summed up in this one commandment: "Love your neighbor as yourself." 10 Love does no wrong to anyone, so love satisfies all of God's requirements. 11 Another reason for right living is that you know how late it is; time is running out. Wake up, for the coming of our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12 The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So don't live in darkness. Get rid of your evil deeds. Shed them like dirty clothes. Clothe yourselves with the armor of right living, as those who live in the light. 13 We should be decent and true in everything we do, so that everyone can approve of our behavior. Don't participate in wild parties and getting drunk, or in adultery and immoral living, or in fighting and jealousy. 14 But let the Lord Jesus Christ take control of you, and don't think of ways to indulge your evil desires.

Not to be a statement of illegitimacy, I believe that particular aspect of the New Testament is entirely astrotheological.


Meaning, all based upon stars, and seasonal anomolies..

Winter solstice; sun wanes ,christ dies

Spring equinox, easter, sun longer period in sky, christ rises.

Not saying this is the entirety of the New Testament; just the events surrounding the birth and death of christ.

Figurines of President Barack Obama are being put in nativity scenes in shops in Naples, Italy for the Christmas season.

I can see why this is happening. Old people, young people wanting Obama to help them with higher education, disabled people, single mothers, people with disabilities, people on food stamps, anyone who has entitlements are hoping that Obama will save them, Obama will give them salvation. Obama seems to be the new Jesus. People might disagree but I can see it happening. Because of high employment, a broke economy, jobs shipped overseas that are never coming back, high levels of legal and illegal immigrants taking jobs, people have become too desperate. It will only get worse

 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


Good one!

There's been a few time's I've said to waitresses and other people "Happy Holidays" and got berated "IT'S CHRISTMAS!, NOT ANYTHING ELSE!" How the hell was I supposed to know if they celebrated christmas, hanukkah, the solstice etc. And it IS a "holidays" (plural) because of New Years. I was just being nice. touchy touchy. Lighten up.

And since I lean toward the earth religions and celebrate solstice, how come they don't have any Happy Winter Solstice cards anywyhere? There is Freedom of religion in this "free" country, isn't there? Should I be pissed nobody respects or recognizes MY religious beliefs?

While in Europe it's called Basque, Easter is based on Esther, the goddess of fertility, who's symbols were the rabbit, for obvious reasons and the egg (re: the hormone estrogen). Christs chronological birthday is calculated to be in June or September. It got changed to convert Pagans to Christianity easier, since in Europe they celebrated the shortest day and longest night of the year as a start of longer days and more sun and the end of long hard winter (and to break up the harsh winter with a day of celebration for the children). Then comes Easter, the spring equinox, the time in spring to start planting crops and celebrate their fertility and growth.

SINCE we all believe in freedom, and freedom of religion to worship the God of our choice, I WANT MY RELIGION to be recognized by big national chain stores selling thousands of chinese plastic what-nots. Wah Wah Wah...

Oh, I believe Jesus WAS a prophet. So was Buddha, Black Elk, and many others. Prove me wrong.

Re: Went to Target to get a birthday card today...
Actually, Christmas was conveniently dropped over a previously existing pegan holiday called Winter Solstice, in which people celebrated the changing of the seasons.

December 21-22 has always been a holiday for any human culture in the Northern Hemisphere because it's roughly the night where the sun is down the longest, ie. the longest night. This made it a good night to celebrate, because it's the turning point in winter where the sun starts to come back.



So... in other words... the Christian religion is merely renting space with a pre-existing holiday.

If you want more Jesus cards, order 'em up or something. I don't get pissed when I can't find cards referencing the fact we've made it over the hump of winter with our lives in tact.

Re: Went to Target to get a birthday card today...
I'm not even religious but this politically correct "seasons greetings" shit is really pissing me off

It's a god damned Christian holiday...

It should be honored as such
 Quoting: ^TrInItY^


no it is not...it was a pagan holiday that was kidnapped by the early Christian Church...look it up or are you too lazy to do that?

They had their Christmas cards up.

NOT ONE SHOWED JESUS, MARY, JOSEPH, THE WISE MEN, A NATIVITY, A STAR OF BETHLEHEM.

THERE WERE NO RELIGIOUS CARDS WHATSOEVER EITHER.


Atheism at its best.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 990186


"Christians" stole a pagan holiday and claimed it as their own, when the true God of the Bible detests such a day. The Christ mass has nothing to do with Jesus or the Word of God. We have learned the ways of the heathen.

They are the intellectual equivalent of primates.

But I would not state with certainty "There is no God".

Because we cannot know; neither do they. The essence of agnostic approach; the right approach imo.
 Quoting: Dr.DoomLittle



Fair enough.
Just because we are alive does not mean we know how to live.
