Keep Christ in Christmas!

115 posts in this topic

Say what you want. That Jesus Christ was actually born in the Spring and Christianity moved his birth to co-incide with the Winter festival in central Europe. (That's been proven to be true.)

Of maybe you don't believe that Christ was ever born. (That i can't help with. It's called Faith.)

I was at Target near my house last week. (It actually takes me longer to get in and out of my van than it does to drive to Target.) There's a young lady (Early 20's) who always seems to be working when I shop there. She wished me "Happy Holidays". I told her "Merry Christmas". She got a big grin on her face and whispered to me, "We aren't supposed to say that."

I'm not The Golden Calf of Bristol. (I thought the SNL Skit was hilarious!)

Remember where "Christmas" came from!

If I told someone Merry Christmas and they were jewish and celebrated Hannakuh instead, it'd be awkward.....so happy hollidays makes in a comfortable pleasantry for everyone, regardless of religion or what they celebrate.

But that isn't going to make sure everyone knows Jesus Rules and...well not Jesus drools. And we can't have that because evangelizing everyone to your religious belief is as American as Apple Pie and Social Security.

Happy Holidays!

I regularly have faith that people are raised from the dead and that virgins have babies. Does that make me crazy or just religious?

The vitriol you have for Christmas and Christians is sad.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
