    Is that doctrine or merely ancient myths and superstitions one by one shown to have absolutely no basis in actual fact? But that process would actually constitute a "war" on a great many religions and on much non-religious foolishness as well. Sounds pretty even-handed to me.

    Yeah that's pretty much what it is. The fact that more people are essentially choosing to reject archaic tradition is not war as many folks would have us believe, if anything it's enlightenment.

    LOL I didn't see this earlier.

    If the USA is the last bastion of Christianity, then boy, you are definitely doomed.

    I just wanted to mention that here at my nursery we call them Abies Nordmaniana, Picea Pungens, Abies bornmuelleriana, Pseudotsuga menzesii and other similarly melifluous names.

    Wonderful priorities we have America.

    Quite so. Time marches on, but there are those who prefer to lie down at the side of the road and not take another step.

    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.

    Environut Hysterics: Shows your insane regard for plant life over human life.
    Gift Giving: Making this entirely about exchanging things, and ignoring the sharing of one's self.
    Mistletoe: Rubbishing the very thing you profess to love: Plant life. Talk about hypocrisy....
    The rest of that list represents your shared cynicism with obvious Child, therefore, I have no further interest in debating his clone, either.
