(Mid-Autumn Festival is a traditional Chinese holiday celebrating family reunion, which falls on Sep. 14th this year.)

Should the MidAutumn Festival be removed?

The origins are definitely unChristian, we can say for sure. It has nothing to do with Christianity, Jesus, or God. It is to do with an archer, a moon goddess, suns or rabbits. It dates back over 3000 years and so to continue with this tradition is very wrong, I feel.

I personally think it should be removed. It is unChristian, nothing do with Christianity. Christians like myself find it false because the true God is jealous if we worship other Gods. “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:4-5).

I am a firm Christian, believes in the Word of the Bible.

Then don't observe the holiday. Problem solved.

So...any tradition older than Jesus needs to be done away with? Then let's get rid of the Ten Commandments, shall we?

Shall we tell him about the origins of Christmas?

"The origins are definitely unChristian, we can say for sure."

Sorry to disappoint you, Thomas, but the only real Christian holidays commonly observed are St. Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day. Easter, Halloween, and yes, even Christmas...all those holidays first got started by those pagans that get the undies of so many "good Christian folks" bunched up like nothing else.

You dont need to observe it if you don't want to. And why would this so-called "god" be jealous if people worshipped the other gods thet aren't supposed to exist. If god is jealous about something, then that something must be pretty awesome to be better than god.

What an asshole.

9/23/2008 7:36:42 PM


...and when God gets jealous Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset...

9/23/2008 7:36:48 PM


So? Don't be bothered, just let them come to you.

9/23/2008 7:41:58 PM


Sounds just like Easter to me. Smash the chocolate rabbit!

9/23/2008 7:42:32 PM


This is the shit that starts wars Tom, so technically you should stfu since it doesn't pertain to you in the first place you fucking bigot

Then just omit the parts about the pagan gods, just as you people did with the Christmas tree and the Easter egg.

9/23/2008 7:46:26 PM


Thomas, you're as smart as a bag of smashed assholes. Where the fuck do you think Christmas and Easter come from?

9/23/2008 7:49:47 PM


So it's not Christain? So what?

They probably are not Christains, so leave them alone.

You win an Asshole Award.

Smells Like a Monkey

If your jealous little god doesn't get all the attention, will he throw a temper tantrum?

Sorry if we don't all want to grovel at the feet of a petulant diety.

Sure, for unChristian festival removal, contact 24 hour hotline 1-800-IMRE-TARD.


9/23/2008 7:56:47 PM


You mean you Borg-like Christians have not assimilated that holiday yet? What's got into you lazy bastards? You didn't even bother to change the name of Easter, so why don't you just cover it with Jesus-cooties, call it a Jelly Apple and EAT IT?

I am a firm Christian ...

I never would have guessed.

Then don't celebrate it! But you shouldn't bully other people into your beliefs.

ps. Birthdays don't have anything to do with God, Christianity or Jesus, either. Better avoid those, too.

Who the fuck cares what you think? Who are you to demand anything be removed? Fuck off!

9/23/2008 9:10:13 PM

I like how his name is Deng, but he's against a Chinese holiday.

9/23/2008 9:13:01 PM


Okay, fine. Just give back Yule, Easter, and Halloween and stop claiming our holidays as your own! Nothing is "christian" because you STOLE the holidays from Pagans! They were, and will always be pagan NOT Christian. Also, if you want to be like that then just celebrate St. Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day. Since, well...I really don't. I feel no need to and Valentine's day is just a day for money, anyways, a PERFECT day for Christians...:)

The Mid-Autumn Festival celebrates your respect for your family and your ancestors. Do you have ancestors?

9/23/2008 9:35:07 PM


Your god is such a fucking sissy. And you're just as bad.

9/23/2008 9:36:36 PM


It is a matter of your opinion that the Christian/Muslim/Jewish god is the real, only, true god.

There is no way that you can prove it.
