Christian at Christmas Time
 
I enjoy Christmas, it is a wonderful holiday to me and the Christ Child... I celebrate it as a season for my family and friends.... past memories of the Baby Jesus and his Nativity.

Giving money to the poor to celebrate the birth of Our Lord. :thumbup:

Jesus Is The Reason For The Season!

Sorry, I hate to stir the pot, but I think Catholics are a downfall to society! I believe in Jesus, and nothing more as far as religions go. Christ is my savior, and I will never deny Him my Faith!

What exactly is the "War on Christmas" as you put it, InTheNet...the only time I ever hear it talked about is with stores saying Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas...which I can't imagine rises to a war on christmas.

It is fair to keep Christmas off of public (government owned) property. Other than that, I see Christmas trees and stuff like that at most stores. Some stores just chose to say happy holidays, rather than Merry Christmas.

I have never really seen the "War On Christmas" either.

Others have described it better than I could...

"War" on Christmas part of "secular progressive agenda" that includes "legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage," etc....
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly

Fox News host John Gibson has published a book defining the ongoing battle:
The War on Christmas: How the Liberal Plot to Ban the Sacred Christian Holiday Is Worse Than You Thought (Sentinel, October 2005).

There are various fronts in the war and the chief enemy is the ACLU.

Yeah, sorry that some of us want to include other holidays in the season. But Doug don't forget, these people want their religion and their holidays to be accepted by everyone. They get offended if you even mention other holidays. They forget that NO ONE is stopping them from celebrating any holiday they want in any way. But that's not good enough, they want all of US to celebrate the same way they do.

CKFresh 12-20-2006 04:05 PM

Inthenet, show me one instance when anyone has tried to BAN Christmas? Who is stopping you from celebrating in any way that you chose?

The last midnight mass I went to was with a girlfriend in college... everybody was "three sheets in the wind"... I don't remember much about it, just sitting and standing, and sitting and standing...

I agree it is good to give in this season, or any season for that matter... yep, do the food bags to the homeless shelter for x-mas and thanksgiving, give to my local animal shelter, pick three or four angels from the tree to give gifts to the kiddies, make a yearly donation to the hospice house...

:D

Wal-Mart is wonderful...they buy over 90% of their goods from China... nothing better than some slave labor to say "Merry Christmas"...

I would suggest smoking it instead, much more enjoyable...;)

Heathen, the way I hear it...Catholics think "other Christians"(Protestants) are worshipping all wrong, and if they are lucky, they might see limbo when they die... Protestants think Catholics are pagans that worship a false idol(Pope, see Papists)... *L*, same book, very different viewpoints....

I think we are, as Carl Sagan put it, "Stuff that stars are made of"... we will return to that a few billions years down the road... I can dig it... *stirs then smokes that pot*..:rolleyes:
