Who is waging war? No body cares about Christmas except the people celebrate it.

You really exemplify the intelligent conservative Republican. You're observant, literate, topical, and able to draw imaginary connections to political conspiracy theories. Thank you, Biggun.

It's just the religious groups complaining because they weren't given any special treatment like they accustomed to getting every year around this time of the Winter Soltice.

From what I understand it is only the Christians in America asking for special treatment. Most people of other religions in America want the government to represent all belief systems equally.

CHRISTmas is Christmas, St.Patricks day is St Patricks day, Valentine's day is Valentine's day, Martin Luther King day is Martin Luther King day. Now let's just think about how we could change up the names of these other "holidays" if we change CHRISTMAS. Christmas is OUR season to celebrate Christ. If you don't like it, don't celebrate it, no problem. But leave our CHRISTMAS alone. Or we could just start changing ALL the holidays. Christmas is for christians that celebrate CHRIST. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. If you are not religious or if you have another religion, celebrate yours as you see fit. End of subject.

Amen. I am all for the reason for the season. I just don't like the commercial part of it.

That's right; Christmas is your season now. Long ago, Christians set a 'war on winter solstice' if you will and stole it for Christmas. Christmas season isn't the time to celebrate Hanukah or Kwanza or whatever ones religion celebrates when it's cold outside. Why not? Because that would be wintertime, and decorating classrooms and work spaces to be all inclusive is much more offensive if a menorah is placed next to a nativity scene. Get over it, and happy holidays, everyone.:)

Christmas was first, when we want to tell someone merry Christmas it's because we want them to know what we believe in. Only people who don't have a belief are worried about having the generality thing going on. We don't want to be general, we want you to know how we feel.

Christmas was not first. Tell anyone whatever holiday greeting you like. If you want to be a dick about it, then you'll disregard simple social expectations to respect others' beliefs just so you can claim that there's a "War on Christmas". Christians are the main offenders of persecuting other faiths, and they're also the main offenders of boasting that they've been persecuted.
Suck up your evangelical pride and show some Christ-like love by telling your Jew friends to have a happy Hanukah. Just kidding, you probably have no friends of other faiths.

Celebrate Not Those Things of Pagan Origins!/ Stand Steadfast Against the Winds of Deception and Lying!

:

From God The Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For He and His Wife, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Question asked by Timothy: Lord, should we still celebrate Christmas with our extended family, as planned?
[Answer from God The Father] To you the truth is given, lo the truth is made known. Thus you and your family shall not celebrate on this 25th day of December, nor on the next... You shall never again celebrate this detestable holiday of men.
And concerning those you love, who celebrate this day in these ways which I abhor, give them not its origins until it is finished. For now, accept their gifts with love and thanksgiving, though they remain in ignorance of many, many things. And on account of their ignorance, I do not yet hold it against them.
Yet those things of sin and righteousness, they do know. And this I have counted against them, until the day comes when they call upon My name through the forgiveness of The Son, accepting His sacrifice for the cleansing of their sins. For the day, when all My chosen come to Me in repentance, draws near! Soon, oh so very soon, your loved ones will dedicate themselves to Me, wishing to do only that which is right and good in My eyes. 

For I shall show great signs and wonders,
In all the earth and in the heavens...

Then shall all the sons and daughters of Truth
Know the Day has truly come. 

Behold, they will call upon My name in great trembling and fear, and with much weeping. For they had known all their lives, deep within, the truth of who I am, yet continued to deny Me. And now that I am come do they weep loudly, falling to their knees, humbled, realizing that indeed their Creator and Redeemer lives!... Let their hearts melt and receive healing! Let all lying and deception flee from them! Let their eyes be fully opened and their ears unstopped! And with their mouths, let them sing,“Praise and glory, to He who sits on the throne, and to The Lamb!” 

For I am coming quickly!...
With truth and salvation in My right hand, 
And judgment and death in My left...

Behold, the time of harvest is upon you! 

Look up, O children of Zion, for the horsemen begin their ride;
The first already sits upon his mount, holding his bow...
Woe, woe, woe to the peoples of this world!...

For the winds of deception, and much lying,
Blow upon the face of the whole Earth!

Join Not in the Error of the People
Home > MORE Letters From God and His Christ > Join Not in the Error of the People
Listen:
4/22/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Lord’s Words Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear - Regarding Easter
Thus says The Lord YahuShua: Those who knowingly celebrate Easter, and its deplorable traditions, hate My resurrection.
Thus says The One who sees, The One who knows: Join not in the error of the people, have no part in their sin... I am The Lord.
For those who refuse My correction are foolish, and those who refuse to repent will walk through very dry places. For the pride of men is a heavy stone, which increases in weight each day it remains unbroken.
Join not in the error of the people...
Have no part in their sin...
Says The Lord.
