Christians are always trying to come off as victims. I think that would be very hard to pull off when the vast majority of Americans came to be Christian. The war on Christmas was invented by Fox TV as a far-right attention-getting gimmick. The pitiful thing is the fact that so many bought into it.

It was originally called Christmas to recognize the birth of Christ. Why X that out?

If you atheists don't believe in God, why do you spend so much time trying to disprove him? If he doesn't exist, why do you waste your time? After all aren't you such a brainiac that this war against Christmas is beneath you?

Read the History of Christmas. It has NOTHING to to with the birth of Christ. It was a pagan holiday called Saturnalia. The Church of Christ does not recognize Christmas as a Christian holiday. You can't get more Christian than the Church of Christ.

I am not an atheist but if you got your Christmas stolen I am sorry. You can have a little piece of mine, Merry Christmas, but don’t forget that it is a season of holidays for Christians world wide so seasons greetings and happy holidays, I hope you and your family are well.

Don’t forget that Advent begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day, which is the Sunday nearest November 30, and ends on Christmas Eve (Dec 24). If Christmas Eve is a Sunday, it is counted as the fourth Sunday of Advent, with Christmas Eve proper beginning at sundown.

I never mind when someone says merry christmas. If that's what people want to call the winter solstice today then fine by me. It doesn't mean I have to believe in that ridiculous baby Jesus story. But if your god is supposed to be all powerful, why can't he defend himself instead of sending sycophants to piss and moan about what to call a holiday like a bunch of little menstruating school girls?

Its just a holiday. It is not the birth of Christ. It has nothing to do with Christ. Lets get honest.

There are some brainiactics going on but there are some things that are higher and uncomprehensible in nature that are above everything else.

Which "His Word" should I read; the Torah, Bible, the Quran, the Kitab-i-Aqdas of Bahá’u’lláh, the Hindu Vedas, the Avestas of Zarathustra, the Adi-Granth of the Sikhs, the Mahabarata’s Bhagavad-Gita, the Book of Mormon, or the Urantia book? They all declare themselves to be the absolute truth and the revealed word of the one true god, and believers of each say the others are deceived. Maybe your god can't defend himself because he can't make up his mind which religion he supports from one minute to the next.

Read the one where Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and mine, and rose again, and will be returning. That's the truth I am sticking with.
