No. There is no war on Christmas. It's just a manufactured pile of BS meant to give busy body Christians something to complain about in addition to all their other pet projects. Their entire world revolves around Jesus and because they don't see a world without Jesus, they cannot fathom how anyone else could live without him. They've got a skewed view on reality where if it isn't about Christ, it's evil and out to get them. They're just playing the victim when they're the ones imposing things like the 10 Commandments and prayer in places where it does not belong...public property. They want the US to become a purely Christian nation, not a melting pot of variety and different viewpoints.

Not everybody in the US is Christian. I'm an Atheist. I don't celebrate Christmas, so I say Happy Holidays. For me, this time of year is about being with family and the spirit of giving to those less fortunate than ourselves. It's about the end of a year, a time for reflection, optimism for the future, and new beginnings. For others, it's Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. If you have a problem with my belief system, you are at war with me, not the other way around. Let me believe what I want to believe.

I recognize that not everyone around me is Christian. I respect your beliefs. I am not going to stop you from celebrating Christmas. Let me repeat that. I AM NOT GOING TO STOP YOU from celebrating Christmas. Just don't assume I'm Christian because I'm white and I'm walking out of Walmart with a bag of stuff. If you wish me Merry Christmas, I will only respond by saying Happy Holidays or say nothing at all. Your assumption is what I find offensive.

But I'm sure KTBS is going to try to boost ratings again this year by feeding us the It's Okay to say Merry Christmas spiel. If you're dumb enough to get suckered in by that sensationalized mess, you've got bigger problems. Turn off your TV and volunteer at a soup kitchen. Do something with your church. Just promise me not to indulge the KTBS propaganda. Pretty please? They're doing it for ratings, not for Christ.

If you believe in the concept of Live and Let Live, then let religious freedom, including the right not to believe, flow free. I'm not standing in your way. Don't expect me to bow to your personal beliefs. Keep Jesus personal and you'll be just fine. Shove him in my face and you and I have a big problem, especially if my tax dollars are being spent in his name.

Santa Clause is for those who cant and will not believe in Jesus, so the Santa Clause Christmas is going strong. But the real reason for the season is "frowned" upon by the politically correct crowd (I call them nazis) and it is trying to be dealt a lethal blow by the ACLU and many other socialist organizations.

Will someone thank Tim Allen for me? It's amazing how many people spell Claus "Clause" these days. Thank you, Tim Allen. Thank you. You've helped make it easier to ID morons.

As for PC nazis, the ACLU, and Socialism, well, you're a crackpot from rural Tennessee. You just like to use buzzwords to validate your paranoia. Show me someone who pisses and moans about Socialism, the ACLU, and too much political correctness and I'll show you someone who is exhibiting signs of paranoid schizophrenia (via the DSM IV, not just personal opinion).

Yep. We're all out to get you. We're under your bed. We're in your closet. We're in your head. We're after you. We have organizations.
(That's some pretty raw paranoia.)

I have week ends off, but I'll be in bright and early on the 26th and I'm scheduled to work all week. If you have a problem with me having week ends off, take it up with my employer.

Not sure what kind of a point you were trying to make when your beloved holiday falls on a week end. Try picking up a 2011 calendar. They should be dirt cheap right about now with 2012 on the way.

I don't need to prove anything to a psychopath from bum f_ck Tennessee. Move outta the sticks into civilization. Don't become the next Unabomber. We're not all out to get you. When you stop being a delusional nincompoop, I'll take you seriously.

You wouldn't know a Commie if a time machine parachuted you into Soviet Russia. Of course, you think I'm a Communist because I disagree with your paranoid delusion. If you weigh my voting record, I'm a moderate. I am a registered Independent. I can't help you with your delusion. You need to try medication and seek out assistance from a psychiatrist.

And who uses the word buttwipe in 2011? Lay off the Beavis & Butt-head.

Does it matter who uses the word buttwipe in 2011? Is there a law against it? And I am not from Tennessee. buttwipe. Anyone who cant see the ACLU and other commie organization attacking the christian faith are those who live with their mother in the basement or stoned on their asses around the clock. Also, you defining what a commie is would be like asking one themselves. bozo. oooppps guess thats not up to date in this modern age.

1. You show up as from Chattanooga. Until it says otherwise, you're from inbreeding country. BFE.

2. People who use the word buttwipe are probably basement dwelling screw ups. From this point on, consider name calling a sign of your angry unstable mind, an outright refusal to have a reasonable discussion.

3. You're still delusional. Take your ACLU/commie paranoia to the nearest psych ward. A reasonable conversation cannot be had with you until you receive treatment.

You are not in touch with reality. Arguing with you is like arguing with a piece of furniture. Nothin I say will ever get through to you.

So bugger off. People like you have nothing significant to add to any discussion.

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!
