    Oh look... another pointless discussion about people who are trying to make other people be terminally tolerant.

    Ok so help me with this. When I was in college many years ago, Scientists and scholars had established he was born around February 8 based on the clues in the Bible and other sources. When did the April date come into play?

    I don't care.

    And anyone that does care has not NEARLY enough in their lives, imo.

    Uh no. They are followers of the Annoited one (Christi) so by definiton they are Christian. I was born Catholic and I can assure you they recognize Jesus as their saviour and lord.

    I think you may be confusing the idea of a single god with Catholics. There was a sect in early Egypt that accepted this idea but it was destroyed not soon after.

    Spanky knows alot about this stuff.

    I cannot believe that some are so extreme that they will not accept "Christmas". Some will call them "mentally sick".
    I call them controlling/ intolerant.
    We do not need such people.
    Its a Christmas tree, I do not wished to be laughed at if I call it a "holiday tree".

    as for "holiday tree," that sounds dumb, so i don't use that phrasing myself. but it doesn't offend me if someone wants to call it that. it's a big 'ol world, and I can think of things that matter more.

    Its time for you, Cilogy,to have a good discussion with your parents.
    I'd guess that Jesus was born in the springtime (my guess)....so we celebrate this event during the winter......I cannot see how this makes any difference worth getting ones panties twisted into a knot...
    Every day, we must try to be courteous and respectful, particularly on Christmas Day.

    You may have a point there. I'm not up to speed on the spirituality level over there. I wonder if the Vatican is dealing with the same kind of progressive idiots that we are?

    When ecclesiastical leaders ignored the anti-Christians & started listening to the Spirit of God.
