That's kinda like the funny part!
Many people in this area don't realize you can believe in the same god as they do but not believe in Jesus Christ.
It's an honest admission of sorts fueled by catholicism's teachings of the holy trinity and the concept that Jesus is god's son and therefore, one in the same.
Little tolerance exist for other concepts or beliefs.

Itís very clear you are not a Christian.....or of any other peaceful religious faith.

Answer the question about Rhode Island and Nativity Scenes....or can you without lying???

Because its true...there is a war on CHRISTMAS!

And all I want is for it to stop....not to force anyone to convert and/or celebrate it with me.....just quit attacking CHRISTMAS and trying to take it out the picture!

There you go, deflecting the question?

If there is no war on Christmas, HOW ARE THESE THINGS GOING ON?

HOW IS THE LIL GIRLS VETERANS DAY POEM NOT AN ISSUE?

HOW DOES JAMIE FOXX RANT ON ABOUT KILLING WHITE PEOPLE, YET RACISM IS NOT THE FOREFRONT OF THAT CONVERSATION?

etc etc.....

It seems that you and I have different definitions of War. I'm not interested in telling anyone what to say.

Look, everyone knows that Jamie Foxx is a moron. I hadn't even heard of this until you posted it because I don't listen to anything he says. It just doesn't matter to me.

Would you be upset with me if I wished you Happy Hanukah?

So,christmas has nothing to do with the aspiration of hope to the world or mans ability to rise above himself and become spiritually free? I must be reading a different version of the bible story than others or maybe the point has been missed entirely.I really don't relate marketing agenda to the story at all.
You are absolutely reading a different version of the Bible because Christmas, nor the description you provided of it, are not mentioned in the Bible. The pagan festivities that came to be Christmas were a celebration of indulgence, honoring the God Saturn.

Many fundamentalist Christians do not celebrate Christmas because its origins have nothing to do with Christ.

As for Jamie Foxx, he is in a Quentin Tarantino movie where he is a freed slave and along with Christoph Waltz, goes around killing lots and lots of people.

What that has to do with worried's whining over a non-existent war on Christmas, beyond lack of understanding of figurative and literal meanings, I'm not sure.

If this thread has proven anything, it's that non-Christians (and those similar to lapsed Catholics) have a much better understanding of Christianity and its traditions.

Oh, i thought christians celebrated christmas because of the birth of christ and hope for the world. I didn't relate to the exact date or even time period as being relevant.All religions have celebrations on certain dates for their faiths.I can't figure out why someone would even bother with enjoying a celebration they don't relate to.Just like to get presents and enjoy family and time with friends.Sounds like they are caving to peer pressure or must get some good feeling out of it.Sure would save on your time and money to just opt out.

Giving gifts at Christmas commemorates the bringing of gifts from the Magi to the Child Jesus, and is therefore a true Christian tradition. Who says that those gifts must be store bought, or expensive?..

Again, the tradition of giving gifts comes Rome, pre-Christianity, as a part of the festival of Saturnalia. As Christmas started to evolve from Pagan to Christian, early Christians attempted to stop the practice of giving gifts.

The reason for the season is actually the earth tilting on its axis. Continue on, though ... Keep calm and stay ignorant.

It's very clear to me you don't respect any other true religious faiths. Especially, the ones most closely aligned to Catholicism.
You categorizes Judaic beliefs as unacceptable. But you are very confused, indeed.
You hate Obama and Islam. But don't have the guts to speak against Islam.
Only copy/paste.
You see most conservative republicans like myself have a far greater respect for the power of negotiation.
If Henry Kissenger could have been president( and he could have been through succession of rank) we would not have the problems we have in the Arab world today.
Emotions may get us in motion, but the real stakes lie in the brakes.

I agree this country is in a very sad state. The reasons and faults are several years removed. Both parties share the responsibility. The downfall of America occurred with the best president ever signing the worst treaty ever.
NAFTA has destroyed this nation.
Now we deal with china.
