    Re: 81% Celebrate Christmas As A Religious Holiday

    Originally, the so called war on Christmas was a conservative idea meant to play up to their persecution complex. Ironically, many people have been actually rather amused by the idiots getting all red faced over this made up war and have taken to gleefully egging them on. It really is hilarious observing people having a snit fit over losing their monopoly on a holiday they originally stole from another belief system.
    Ignorance is the refuge of faith
    It's become very apparent that there is nothing respectable about faith

    The tide is finally turning and people are once again realizing what Christmas is...I believe this HUGE change in public opinon is because Americans finally realize the handful that attack christmas is for a personal agenda and it has absolutely no bearing on taking anyones rights or infringeing on anyones rights....

    I have traveled all over the United states and have never seen Christmas "attacked". In my city churches are celebrating, businesses are playing Carols and religious events and hyper consumerism as well are all under way.

    Theaters have Christmas programs and just today I was in one of the most progressive cites in the US ... the organic co op had fresh wreaths and candy canes and churches were playing music and advertising services to celebrate the birth of Christ and live manger scenes on Christmas Eve.

    There is no war on Christmas ... you have been indoctrinated by Bill O'Reilly. Is he still running the War on Christmas show?

    I do not hold any personal blind faith in any super natural belief system yet I support each and every person's right to celebrate.

    I am out and about all over and have never seen evidence of a war on Christmas ... do you have any you tube clips of this war?

    Since they started saying that there is a War on Christmas (take a trip the mall, look around, and laugh with me at that statement), since Fox News and Rush Limbaugh became number 1, since education became liberal, and since they have become the party that plays the victim card as often as possible. I don't dislike individual republicans or conservatives, but the movement as a whole is quite humorous to watch.

    Apology not accepted.

    There are many groups that want to do a lot of things. There are groups all over the country that want to overthrow the government. Does that mean we are in a civil war?

    There are many groups that espouse racial superiority. Does that mean we are in the middle of a race war?

    There are many groups that want to get rid of gambling. Is there a war against gambling?

    There is even a group out there that espouses we live on a flat planet. Is there a war against astronomy?

    The supposed attacks on Christmas are a ruse. The purpose of which is to incite emotional responses that do not have any relation to reality.

    Why is it necessary to have Christianity as the supreme religion, that not saying Christmas is declared as war on this particular holiday and religion when other religions are not acknowledged to the same extent?

    That group's membership is at 16,600(source wiki), which is about .00053 % of the US population if I did my math right. They work within the courts against what it sees as first amendment violations(separation of church and state as it is referred to). In their list of accomplishments, they have 1 that relates to christmas, which is that they stopped a state using public funds to put up a nativity scene(source). Note the very important word "public". Public funds going to finance a religious display is a clear violation of the first amendment establishment clause.

    Note that no one is seriously going after public christmas tree displays(this group just asked and was granted the right to put up a sign of their own for the holidays next to the public christmas tree(and their sign was retarded) in Washington state. The national christmas tree is perfectly fine, as was Obama's very christian message recently. The war on christmas is bull****.
