Holidays are about something whether its 4th of July, Labor Day, and of course Christmas.
You can't just say Dec 25th is a holiday.
Like all holidays its a holiday because of something. In this case the birth of Christ.
Um, dear, Christ was not born on December 25. No biblical scholar in the world believes this. A census would not be taken in the winter.(Luke 2:1-4) Shepherds would not be in fields watching their flocks in the winter.(Luke 2:7-8)

The most commonly accepted time for Jesus' birth is late September. This is concluded based upon the calculated time of John the Baptist's birthdate and knowing that Jesus was born 6 months later.

December 25 is merely a date that the Christians stole from the Pagans who already had Winter Solstice Festivities at that time. In trying to squash out other religions, Christians forced their holiday into existing holidays.

Thanks for demonstrating yet again that those that shove the bible into conversations have rarely actually have read it.

I bet you think Jesus was an only child too, right?! LOL!!

Finally, someone that makes sense and speaks the truth on this thread. People can't handle the truth. They see and believe what they choose to.

Thank you, Jonah, for bringing clarity to these holidays. Many Christian holidays are taken from Pagan celebrations... such as Easter. Where do you think the term Easter came from? Not Christianity!

that link worked great for me.
BUT Jonah1 you missed my point or else you are trying to ignore it.
I'll type really slow for you try and keep up.

Since gays ( Jonah1 included ) don't believe in Christ they they should be excluded from the Christmas season.

They shouldn't get any time off from work for it. No bonus money. No gifts. No sharing of the spirit.
It should be just another work day for Jonah1 and the gays.
While the rest of us enjoy the birth of Christ.

Do you understand my point now Jonah1 ? Or do i have to dummy it down some more for you ?
I don't want to demean you but you do seem kinda dense at times. Sniffing the poppers bottle too often ?

+++++++GOD NOW APPROVES OF HOMOSEXUALITY NOW!!!+++++++ God has changed His mind regarding Homosexuality!. God can change His mind on matters if He wants to, there are instances in the Bible where God does just that!. This time is no different. God has certainly been answering the big Gays prayers lately!, with their recent Supreme Court victories and all. God wouldn't answer me, a Straight guy!. You know, I once asked God for a wife, 5 months later, He gave me a wh**e!. I do admit, I did used to blaspheme God a couple years on down before this, but I stopped this. I figured this was the reason God raped me. If God didn't want to give me a wife, He sure as Hell didn't have to give me that rotten wh**e!!!. Because God bestowed this evil upon me, my blaspheming Him returned with a vengence!!!. I lay it on old God now and I don't care if I do go burn forever, HAHAHAHAHA!!!. I blaspheme God real good now. I do it more then I ever did and I myself, is a might proud of that fact, HAHAHAHAHA!!!...GIVE ME ANOTHER WH**E GOD!!!!!!!!!.

Sam God didn't answer you because you turned your back on him.
You have free will.
So all your wrong decisions are of your OWN making.
You get to the right decisions in life when you SINCERELY ask for God's help.
Even then God only gives you what you need and can handle.

As for God approving your homosexuality you need to prove that.
You gays always ask for proof.
Well now its your turn to PROVE IT.
But just like Jonah1 you'll ignore proving it because you know you can't prove it.

I'm still trying to figure out if religion makes people insane, or if insane people are just attracted to religion. Maybe a little of both? lol

Funny how so many people subscribe to a religion that they know nothing more about than what their pastors have told them......or Charlie Brown.

You claim the existence of something that has no evidence outside of written text. The burden of proof is on the one making the positive claim. But hey.....I understand......logic and religion don't mix.

Can you prove that leprechauns don't exist? If not, until you can prove they don't, we'll have to assume they exist also.....and anything else your imagination can conjure up. They all exist because no one can prove they don't. Gotcha.

Speaking of dignity; how is it dignified to belong to a religion that teaches you that you are less than dog shit from the day you were born, and now you must grovel on your knees for the rest of your sorry life praying to the ceiling fan over a book of myths? All because your ego can't handle the fact that you are unimportant will cease to exist someday. Sad, deluded....and oh so undignified.
