Quote# 8725

Yeah we all know the pagan roots of Christmas, but reguardless of the roots...it is still celebrating the birth of Christ the Saviour. Jesus gets all the glory, not pagans. Like it or not, if you are participating in Christmas, you are worshipping Jesus Christ.

Damn. And I already set up my solstice tree and started my yule log.

Can I stop delivery on my \"Happy Holidays\" cards?

Go ahead and call it whatever you want because, like it or not, you are still celebrating the rebirth of the Sun god.

Just with the names changed.

It's remarkable how involuntary fundy christianity is. They also like to tell us that we worship Satan by default and now we worship Jesus because we have a national holiday on the date they usurped a while back.

Tenka: They need someone to blame for the problems they have in their institutions. They keep harkening back to the days where fear and guilt kept people out of trouble. And staying silent was always better that being punished for a bad thought.

It worked, but you created a burden and kept the problems in the closet where they couldn't be solved. Not that everything distasteful should be a problem, but those who choose to talk might learn something they hadn't before, or might be able to get a better perspective.

Okay, enough armchair psychology. :)

How many days of the week are named after Greek/Roman gods? Aren't we all, by Anthony's logic, participating in celebration of these gods?

They just don't want to admit they stole the holiday.

Thanks to the Mikkelson's: http://www.snopes.com/holidays/christmas/jesus.asp It was a religious strongarm move.

IlDayo: Every day of the week has a pagan origin. w00t!

...if you are participating in Christmas, you are worshipping Jesus Christ.

Oh, so that's what my co-worker was doing at the office Christmas party when she gulped down a triple Jameson's and photocopied her butt.

You stole the holiday from the Celts. You just changed the name of the God.

So when I go to my families house on Christmas I am actually worshipping you bastard demi-god? Wow, golly.. I didnt feel like I was worshipping anything.

Oh well, no big deal to me.. maybe to the fundies.. but not me.

I would tell Anthony a thing or two about Easter (Ishtar) but I doubt he would get it.
