spoken like a true Christian
How Did Christmas Come to Be Celebrated on December 25?
Roman pagans first introduced the holiday of Saturnalia, a week long period of lawlessness celebrated between December 17-25. During this period, Roman courts were closed, and Roman law dictated that no one could be punished for damaging property or injuring people during the weeklong celebration. The festival began when Roman authorities chose “an enemy of the Roman people” to represent the “Lord of Misrule.” Each Roman community selected a victim whom they forced to indulge in food and other physical pleasures throughout the week. At the festival’s conclusion, December 25th, Roman authorities believed they were destroying the forces of darkness by brutally murdering this innocent man or woman.
The ancient Greek writer poet and historian Lucian (in his dialogue entitled Saturnalia) describes the festival’s observance in his time. In addition to human sacrifice, he mentions these customs: widespread intoxication; going from house to house while singing naked; rape and other sexual license; and consuming human-shaped biscuits (still produced in some English and most German bakeries during the Christmas season).
In the 4th century CE, Christianity imported the Saturnalia festival hoping to take the pagan masses in with it. Christian leaders succeeded in converting to Christianity large numbers of pagans by promising them that they could continue to celebrate the Saturnalia as Christians.
The problem was that there was nothing intrinsically Christian about Saturnalia. To remedy this, these Christian leaders named Saturnalia’s concluding day, December 25th, to be Jesus’ birthday.
Christians had little success, however, refining the practices of Saturnalia. As Stephen Nissenbaum, professor history at the University of Massachussetts, Amherst, writes,“In return for ensuring massive observance of the anniversary of the Savior’s birth by assigning it to this resonant date, the Church for its part tacitly agreed to allow the holiday to be celebrated more or less the way it had always been.” The earliest Christmas holidays were celebrated by drinking, sexual indulgence, singing naked in the streets (a precursor of modern caroling), etc.
The Reverend Increase Mather of Boston observed in 1687 that “the early Christians who first observed the Nativity on December 25 did not do so thinking that Christ was born in that Month, but because the Heathens’ Saturnalia was at that time kept in Rome, and they were willing to have those Pagan Holidays metamorphosed into Christian ones.” Because of its known pagan origin, Christmas was banned by the Puritans and its observance was illegal in Massachusetts between 1659 and 1681. However, Christmas was and still is celebrated by most Christians.
Some of the most depraved customs of the Saturnalia carnival were intentionally revived by the Catholic Church in 1466 when Pope Paul II, for the amusement of his Roman citizens, forced Jews to race naked through the streets of the city. An eyewitness account reports,“Before they were to run, the Jews were richly fed, so as to make the race more difficult for them and at the same time more amusing for spectators. They ran… amid Rome’s taunting shrieks and peals of laughter, while the Holy Father stood upon a richly ornamented balcony and laughed heartily.”

It was NOT acquitted of ANYTHING, you big LIAR. It was never investigated. The University dissmissed the charges because they said there wasn't enough evidence. There was to "trial." It was a very poorly orchestrated cover-up of influence pedalling and propaganda, bought and paid for by anti-gay lunatics. The University of Texas covered its own ass to avoid ethics sanctions that would hurt its accreditation. The only people that arte fooled by what's going on here are people who know absolutely NOTHING about research methodology and validity. A first year sciology student could spot the flaws in this piss-poor excuse for a "study."
You clueless moron crack me up with your blabberings. I mean really. Do you think we don't know any better?

thee biggest problem with the study was that the sample includes children of families that started out in same sex marriages as well as children whose original families were from heterosexual families, but that were broken up by homosexual affairs. Divorce usually has a detrimental effect on the children. In fact I do believe that less than 1% of the sample were children from families that started out in same sex marriage.
The study's conclusion should have been about the effects that parents involved in homosexual extra martial affairs have on children
0% of children started out in a ss house. It is impossible for a child to start out in a ss house. A child is always absent one parent and one gender in that setting.

Just round up all those who helped Nick Conway for all those years, those appointed or elected officials from each city involved.

Just squeeze'm like a grape, they will squeal just to save their own hides and whats left of their political careers.

Then the California tax payers will get some justice.

I agree, why do you lie about it? Time to drop the race card Rose, we have a black President twice elected, you should let go and move on, the rest of the country has.
Quarter wit, YOU lied about not knowing I'm black. And there is still racism in this country.

I know you don't think I've graduated high school because I'm black. But I have a degree from a university even you have heard of.
