    Ah... a rightwing hack who has no clue on this topic. Good to know. This has zero to do with liberals or conservatives. It has to do with rigidity and closed-mindedness vs. flexibility and real understanding of the issues. Lots of folks have tried to educate you on this issue. Your refusal to listen places you firmly in the first group.

    I thought virgin birth was a translation error from old to new testament. Virgin birth of Jesus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hebrew has a specific word "almah", which may mean "maiden," "young woman," or "virgin". When Matthew 1:22 states: "Behold the virgin shall be with child" it uses the Greek term "parthenos" as "virgin" as in the Septuagint translation of Isaiah, while the original Masoretic Isaiah uses the Hebrew "almah".[32] This Greek translation "alters or refines the meaning of Isaiah's original Hebrew: where the prophet had talked only of a ‘young woman’ conceiving and bearing a son, the Septuagint projected ‘young woman’ into the Greek word for ‘virgin’ (parthenos)."[33] Raymond Brown suggests that the translators of the Septuagint may have understood the Hebrew word "almah" to mean virgin in this context.[32]

    Honestly, the Bible has gone through enough revisions, translations and canonical editing that I seriously find it hard to take anything it says as proof of original intent. That's not saying there aren't good moral lessons in it, but word of God? Not a chance.

    Then we may have a problem. Jehovah's witnesses don't recognize Christmas for a number of reasons. I don't blame them considering how the modern holiday has little to do with Christ. I'm pretty damn sure that Christ would be appalled at people fighting and even dying to get a dumb gift over a day incorrectly assigned as his birth date. I feel that the Jews are far more adherent to Hanukkah then many Christians are to Christmas.

    You act like that's new. I'm always starting some form of trouble.

    What amazes me is that in today's age of smartphones and tablets, people still have a problem with basic research.

    Did not vote as a tree is a tree is a tree. Call it what you want but it is still a festively decorated tree, lol.
