    Christmas flash mob - Hallelujah, Ontario



    Kinda puts you in the spirit of the season.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yup. A pagan festival in the winter that the Christian church didn't want people to support so they created a December celebration of their Savior's bith even though he was born in the summer.

    Or did you mean the spirit of the season...? That probably makes more sense.

    Christmas is about Christ. It doesn't matter if it was to replace a pagan holiday nor did that holiday go by the name of "Christmas."

    Basically Christians did what the militant secularists are doing now. They were offended by a celebration so they changed it to fit with their beliefs.

    Christmas has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus. He never asked anyone to celebrate his birthday.

    So does that make militant secularists hypocrites for "waring" on Christmas as they claim Christians did towards pagan holidays? From what I understand Christians celebrated the birth of our Savior while pagans celebrated some sun festival.

    Christmas has absolutely everything to do with jesus. The name literally means "Christ's Mass." It isn't a Biblical commandment, but that doesn't mean it isn't about Christ.

    As far as I am concerned, both militant secularists and traditionalist Christians are hypocrites. Celebrate whatever holiday you want and leave everyone else alone. If you want to be completely fair, then the pagans had the holiday first. I understand the pagan festival was a week of feasting and orgies. That sounds a lot funner than rushing out to buy people stuff that they will eventually cram in the back of their garage or celebrating the summer birth of a religious figure in the middle of the winter.

    Christmas has absolutely everything to do with jesus. The name literally means "Christ's Mass." It isn't a Biblical commandment, but that doesn't mean it isn't about Christ.
    I like what my old pastor used to say. "Every day is about Jesus." The ridiculous notion that a holiday created by the church in order to increase their political influence has anything to do with Jesus Christ is nauseating.

    How irritating and tacky. I hate when people won't leave me in peace while I'm eating.
