Non Christians celebrating Christmas...

102 posts in this topic

LOL I've actually been reading up on some more of this lately, and I have seen some new excuses from the Christian crowd...

Not only did Jesus perform all of the miracles in the Bible, but he basically time traveled back to the creation of the universe and was here before all those other guys that had such similar events in their lives...

Clearly THEY were the copycats, and our holiness Jesus (who wasn't even prophesied until the writing of the OT between approx 1500 and 400 BC mind you, which is over 1000 years AFTER the Egyptians were writing about gods and miracles) is the trendsetter because he claims firsties!

Scoff at all other religions, too, please.

I do at any chance I get... it is just that I'm not surrounded by Ramadan sales, or Hanukkah bunnies, or any other religious inspired nonsense during any other part of the year... It is only Christian holidays that they are looking to make a buck off of, so it is the easiest target...

The same people that:

Adopted a slogan of "In God We Trust" and print it on money...

Accept said money in exchange for goods or services made cheaper for getting your CHRISTMAS PRESENTS ON BLACK FRIDAY ONLY!!!111one!

Bribe kids into being good because a fat man in a red suit is watching them (a parable to their own beliefs as adults)

I don't have a problem with religion, really... It is more of an intellectual problem with those who accept it as absolute truth and basically do the equivalent of throwing their hands up and abandon logic/reason when trying to get to the roots and origins of human nature...

Religion leads to so many more bad things than it does good, and it gets rather frustrating when you can't make more people see that...

It just seems that you go after Christians more than others ... of course, this time of year, it's easy pickings.

and even the OT prophecies about the messiah clearly aren't talking about Jesus. You have to have Jesus filtered glasses on to think they are.

Yeah, when they start marketing Ramadan like they do Christmas (which I am sure g5jamz will tell you is coming soon to a country near you), I'll put The Saltman on blast mode too... ;)

FWIW, I was raised a Christian, and still give it credit for its good parts... as do I with all religions...

It is the bad parts that I have a problem with, and the adopting and commercialization of religious holidays is a drop in the bucket of those...

Who cares. If you want to celebrate it, celebrate. If you don't want to, then don't.

    • WaPo isn't partners with the CIA. Amazon Web Services, which sells servers to thousands upon thousands of companies and websites, sold servers to the CIA. You can buy your own now right here. Does that make you partners with the WaPo? https://aws.amazon.com When Jimmy Dore says "600 million dollars is more than the Washington Post is even worth!" he's being a dumbass. The Washington Post didn't make the deal with the CIA so what they're worth is irrelevant. Amazon Web Services sold them servers, and they happen to have the same parent company as the Washington Post. The thing about Jimmy Dore is that he is absolutely utterly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Like, utterly obsessed. Everything goes back to Hillary Clinton to him, and his obsession has morphed into skepticism of the Russian investigation, because he views it as an excuse for why Hillary lost. He can't accept the Russia stuff being true because if it's true then maybe Clinton didn't lose on merit. And so his skepticism of the Russia investigation has led him down the path of 'well the Deep State is conspiring against Trump' and 'the Deep State is the real true evil.' He fact-checks nothing. It's Alex Jones level poo.
    • Anyone who can equate any modern presidency at any moment in time with the embarrassment we see right now is off their gd rocker. What is really telling is that we now see that Trump can't just be casual.  He can't just talk it up with other peers.  He can't just chill the f*ck out. Seriously....people like this are weird as hell.   It's been obvious he's the head of a business but not a business savvy guy since the Apprentice.  I don't understand why we want the Sharknado meets 80s bad guy of Presidents.
