    That religion is no longer around and hasn't been celebrated for at least 1600 years. So it is pointless to bring them up. So it is correct to say that no other religious group puts up decorated evergreen conifer trees this time of year. So yes it is correct to say "the only religions that has decorated evergreen conifer trees around this time of year are Christians and christian like pagans like the Catholics".
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    No, it's not.

    Merely because it hasn't been practiced does not mean it never existed. The Romans practiced the festival of Saturnalia that decorated evergreen conifer trees around this time of year. Therefore the logic you give does not make sense. The only way that Saturnalia does not apply under your actual criteria is if it never existed, because Saturnalia was part of the Roman religion that has decorated evergreen conifer trees around this time of year. Your sole criteria was "that has decorated evergreen conifer trees around this time of year." Saturnalia meets that criteria.

    Pagans are more fun than the Christers that want to impose their religion as if it is the end of the world.

    Don't even get me started. We practice so many pagan rituals under the guise of Christianity that it's hard not consider Christianity has nothing more then a religion that stole most of its ideas from other religions. Hell, Virgin Birth? Jacked. Omnipotent God of Good Vs Evil? Totally ripped off. Giant Flood? Thievery!

    Is Dooble serious? That post seems like a classical troll posting. He can't be serious. Especially after throwing out an insult like that.

    Do you think Dooble is aware that Christmas was banned in America by Christians for years?
