We are founded as, and need to represent the morals of a Christian nation. The further we stray from that line makes us just be more and more like the rest of the world we try to hold ourselves up as being better than.

No, we were founded by Christians. We need to uphold the rights and morals of all the people in our country, as a SECULAR nation. The further we stray from the freedoms, particularly religious freedom, makes us more and more like the oppressors that caused so many people to take refuge in America.

Christmas was never originally a christian holiday anyways, rather it was a Pagan one adapted to suit Christians. I do not even see where you are deriving some sort of assault on your christian holiday and I honestly see no point in this survey, topic, poll, whathaveyou.

America is not superior to other countries nor have we tried to keep that appearance, where you silly uneducated men scrounge up this conclusion from is far beyond me. We were not, I repeat, NOT founded on christian morals, rather the common sense morals that every foundation that wants a sliver of a chance to gain a serious following should base themselves upon, the morals of love and freedom. Unfortunately, that moral inevitably got screwed up somewhere along the road as all such "perfect" things do. It is not in human nature to keep perfect things clean (See: Communism). I weep for the theocracy our nation has become.

If there isn't, there should be...I gave this a lot of thought this holiday season. I'm glad there is a time to celebrate family and even tradition, but I am by no means a Christian. In the past several years it has become more of a commercial holiday, all about people buying stuff from China that they don't need with money they generally don't have. Could we just stop the craziness and get along? Religious people can have their Christmas, Hanukkah, what have you...and we non religious should have the same respect. By the way...it was a pagan holiday to begin with.

The War on Christmas was a book that was promoted by Faux News.

just like most of the information from that station is a lie.

Business want to take Christ out of Christmas and Christmas out of Christmas season all the while they us Christ birth to make lots of money off of the Holiday. If don want to have Christ in the holiday then don't participate in the Christmas season.

The war on Christmas is a scam folks used to rile up the Christian right. We are sick of being used for politics.
