    He wouldn't. That was my point.

    From Western ideals and liberalism? You can really see the love, generosity, and selflessness of Christians in American politics today (lol).

    His point started with how Christians and Jews alike are celebrating their ability to be "saved"... which I don't even understand his contention there.

    Because people do.

    Government's whole purpose is to get itself re-elected; to do that it must report favorably to the people. Lexicon is a salve, a way of reducing the impact of an economic downturn, or to exaggerate successes. Back in the day the old communist based Canadian Wheat Board would not only announce the same wheat sale three or four times, but the term "sale" was dropped in favor of "Dedicated Trade Agreement."

    No, I have a distinct pro-reality bent. The problem with people believing absurd things is that beliefs inform actions and that leads to people acting in absurd ways which does affect others. If you can keep your mind poison in your head, fine. If you can't, then it is the responsibility of society to disabuse you of your religious insanity.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I would acknowledge the reality of it, I still wouldn't care or celebrate Jesus. The facts, however, remain the same, it is a primarily secular holiday that some people attribute some religious aspects to. It isn't about Jesus, it's about presents and getting together with family. That's just the way it is.
