You are just upset because you feel your Christian privileged is being undermined.
Merry Christmas is still Merry Christmas. But the problem with Merry Christmas is it excludes all those other holidays and emphasizes Christianity and nothing else.
Happy Holidays INCLUDES Christmas and all the others. It shows tolerance of the diversity of religions (and secular viewpoints as well) rather than being exclusive like Merry Christmas is. Happy Holidays is just an admission that our country is a melting pot of religions as well as ethnic backgrounds.
If YOU want to say Merry Christmas, go right ahead. No one is trying to stop you. But there are some that realize there are other people out there other than Christians. They want to be tolerant and inclusive and have started saying Happy Holidays since Christmas isn't the only holiday around the winter solstice.
BTW...it is Christmas warriors like you the have gotten me to STOP saying Merry Christmas. If you had kept your traps shut, I would still be using Merry Christmas as my default holiday greeting.
Christians aren't upset about someone who chooses to say "Happy Holidays"

They are upset by those who are told by their employer they have to

Or because in most cases it is a knee-jerk political correctness in a culture that has become so ridiculously soft that nobody can say anything any more without it supposedly offending or ostracizing someone. RR actually gave me the example of having to call "blackboards" what they have always been called, they have to be called "chalkboards" now

If someone decided on their own, "Hey I want to be more inclusive in my holiday greetings as I think that would be a nicer thing to do" then I would say "hey it's a free country. Do what you think is best"

But that isn't what is going on. People are doing it to avoid complaints as a marketing strategy or being forced to do it. So on top of everything else, it isn't even genuine., I hate any form of bigotry but i will also say the political correctness has gone way overboard in this country

Did you ever hear if Slick Willie found his draft notice?

I mean, I am sure you are not just a partisan whack-job so far down the road of propaganda and rhetoric that you can't even separate truth from bullshit any more, even your own, but let's test it anyway

Who were the unpatriotic presidents? Was it just Clinton?

Let me get this straight.

When you are talking to a non-christian, you feel the need to call the holiday named "Christmas" something other than its name, which is "Christmas".

So when you are talking to a non-Jewish person, and the subject of Hannukah comes up, you would call it,...what,..."Happy Multiple Candles"?

Do you ever have trouble keeping all the bull shit in your head straight, Deadwood?

The only people being slighted when a Christmas greeting is given are Christians, if some dumbass like you calls the holiday something other than its name.

You got that, Fuckwit?

The only people slighted by a Christmas greeting - ever - in history - are Christians.

Excuse me for taking "almost all" to mean "almost all".

It's a lie now, and it was a lie when you said it the first time.

As I pointed out by highlighting just a few of the non-editorial shows and segments.

You're stepping out of your league here, Skom.

Better than you have tried this liberal crap with me.

There are many religions in America, so why not be all inclusive and allow others to say Happy Holidays.
Saying Happy Holidays is all inclusive, respectful of Christians, Jews, and all others.
Merry Christmas isn't, plain and simple.
The people that say Happy Holidays are inclusive, it includes Hanukkah, Kwanza, Saturnalia and all other holidays that occur this time of year
Hanukkah and kwanza aren't on the same day as Christmas.

On those days, feel free to wish the Jews a Happy Hanukkah and whoever a Happy Kwanza.

No one celebrates Saturnalia anymore.

But I suppose you could pray to the ancient Romans....

No. That's not what happened.

Nowhere did I give his sleeping around as an example of lack of patriotism.

You said it - you produce it.

Paste the post where I did that, or admit you are a bald-faced liar.

No, you know. Forget it.

You gave one example, Shepard Smith, on a 24 hour news station that isn't editorialized news

And whether or not someone is an ideologue doesn't have anything to do with the point that it is editorialized

If you think one example to the contrary disproves "almost all" you have already swayed me back that you are as stupid as I thought. I mean the name thing was clever but this was beyond retarded.

And you seem to have a very poor grasp on what constitutes a lie

But thanks for the warning. I am just grateful I am safe where you and your tiny dick that causes you overcompensate so much with the constant self-puffery and posts about how tough and intimidating you are can't do me any physical harm! Whew, that is a relief. And as scary as it sounds, I think I will continue to respond if you persist it making stupid posts to me distorting what I said
