    Right here you are lying twice.
    1.)Im not a Marxist. I have told you this about 20 times now.
    2.)I never said Christmas was bad, I simply pointed out Ben Steins hypocrisy.
    You are welcome.
    For what?

    My family celebrates Christmas by getting together for a nice meal.

    That's also how we celebrate every other week of the year.

    Yes, well we must remember the scripture:

    Luke 2:11-12

    10 And the angel said unto them, Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: 11 for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this [is] the sign unto you: Ye shall find a babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, and lying in a manger - and retailers for ever more should always include Merry Christmas in their commericial displays, and if not you should whine about it, lest you all be damned and cast down where there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth..

    Are you requesting that other posters be more politically correct?

    The OP was nothing more than a huge troll to drag people into a religious shoving match. It worked too.

    Unless you know him personally, who gives a fat rat's ass about what Ben Stein says? It really matters not at all.

    I like the peace and love part and if Ben Stein wants to like that too, good on him. What he believes or practices won't alter a thing about what I like about Christmas. I'm certainly not going to argue and fight on a troll thread about peace and love.
