    My apologies. Just taking care of some unfinished business. I'm done with him.
    Your inability to post even a single sentence in a honest fashion is extremely disturbing.

    This activity has been good, oC. It has helped remind me of the positives of Christmas, and also how negative your side of the holiday is.
    No, it's your tendency to insult people who prove you wrong. But thanks for showing you completely incapable of discussing anything honestly.

    People can read that to see just how much you edit and omit. Honestly is not something you practice. Wonder how you consider yourself a good Christian while engaging in that level of sheer dishonesty.

    I have no problem with that. I have a problem with people personally insulting others who actually understand just how little (if anything) most of our Christmas beliefs, traditions and rituals have to do with Christ and then epically failing to prove their case that any of those cited rituals, beliefs and traditions are Christ related. Dooble for instance.

    Who said this was a priority? The right for women to slaughter their unborn is a helluva lot bigger dilemma than the Christmas tree issue, and most people don't give the gravity of that evil practice a second thought.

    The rest of your list represents happy memories, and family traditions. Christ is all about what makes us happy and what bonds us together as families.

    Or...

    Christmas Trees: The destruction of our environment for purely commercial and self-serving means. Are you meaning that Christians about the destruction of our planet?
    Gift Giving: Presents that love is solely about objects and "things". In your world are Christians this shallow?
    Mistletoe: They smell bad and put people who who do not want to be kissed in awkward positions. To you, is Christ about smelling bad and creating discomfort?
    The rest of the list is about commercial endeavors in order to sell things to kids. Seems to me that your version of Christianity is all about greed. Is that how Christ felt?

    This has been a good exercise, Dooble. It demonstrates just how little you know of the spirit and the meaning of Christmas.

    Now there will be 15 posts on how I should just STFU and Say Happy Holidays...I dont wanna though
    The only way I can seen anyone offended by people telling them, "Merry Christmas," is if a close member of their family died on a Christmas. Not that I give a damn what the tree is called.

    LOL I don't think it's surprising to hear that someone who believes in Christian doctrine, also believes that doctrine is under attack.
