But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Christmas Tree vs Holiday Tree

    It doesn't matter what I say, it IS a Christmas Tree.

    The only reason that the whole "holiday tree" BS started was because of political correctness crap and butt hurt idiots. They can all go and get thier own trees and butthurt each other over them for all I care. But if you try to tell me that I should say "holiday tree" I'll be sure to give you an actual reason to be butt hurt over.

    Another comment from the ranks of ignorance. Let's take a look at a just a few of the connections between Christ and Christmas:

    Family
    Christmas Caroling
    Service
    Church Attendance (For some, it's the only time of the year they attend)
    General sharing of goodwill

    You serious?
    How is family, which has existed since the dawn of the first clan form of organism hierarchy proof of anything you say?
    Christmas Caroling is related to Christ how? Sure we sing songs about Christ, but that doesn't that caroling in itself is BECAUSE of Christ. Furthermore, Roman Mummers during the holidays would go around in costume in troops singing. Sounds familiar?

    Service and Attendance are clearly not what I'm talking about. FYI, your rules violation was reported to the mods.

    General sharing of goodwill, which occurs on basically many major holidays.

    Since you think you are so smart, enough that you'll risk a TOS violation, want to explain to me how the follow traditions are from Christ?

    Christmas Trees
    Gift Giving (and it's whole slew of Commercialization)
    Mistletoe
    Yule Tide Logs
    Eggnog
    Frosty the Snowman
    December 25 as Christ's Birthday (which it clearly cannot be based on the descriptions in the Bible)
    Santa Claus
    Christmas Stockings
    Holly, Ivy and Greenery
    Poinsettias
    Jack Frost
    Christmas cards
    Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer

    That's just for starters. I can keep going on about rituals, traditions and other things we do during Christmas that have as much do to with Christ as a Festivus Pole.

    Ah, but you said "As far as I know the only religions that has decorated evergreen conifer trees around this time of year are Christians and christian like pagans like the Catholics."

    Saturnalia decorated trees and gave gifts during this time of the year many years ago. So now you have heard of a religion that has engaged in such behavior.

    Family is not just limited to those that think they are better than others just because of their religious beliefs.
