    How are atheists being assholes when all they want is the same thing Christians want?

    people celebrate Christmas all over the world and the message is "Peace, Love and Good Will towards man". What is the Festivus message?

    There are Jewish holidays. There are American holidays. There are no Christian holidays. Christmas is not a Christian holiday because Christianity has no holidays.

    What does shrimp, polyester/cotton blends, anal sex, murder, Sabbath violations, stealing, committing adultery, hybrid grapes, slavery and animal sacrifices have to do with Christian holidays? Absolutely nothing. Are you trying to derail the discussion about something that you find more interesting than this thread?

    I was responding to these comments:

Agnostics, atheists, and everyone in between, enjoy the Christmas season while you and others are trying to make this about scripture, or other side issues. Why not just accept Christmas for what it is and just enjoy yourself? Have you never celebrated during the Christmas season? Given a present to a friend or loved one? Wished someone a Merry Christmas?

    Some people hate freedom of religion. These terrorist prefer freedom of Christian religion only.

    I still think the Christians should take their display down in order to avoid catching the Satanic cooties.

    Whatever you want it to be. It's free-form.

    Question for me. What does the Bible say about beating your wife? I'm not familiar with these Old Testament passages.

    Question for you. How does the Bible say that slaves should be treated? I am very familiar with these Old Testament passages. American slavery didn't follow the scriptural example. An American's concept of slavery is perverted by the American tradition of slavery rather than the Jewish tradition of slavery. You should read what the Old Testament says about slaves.
