    Yes, I do agree with him. I'm not Christian, but I celebrate. It's a time of year that people are loving and generous, and are doing what they can to try and make th e lives of other people, better. It's not so much about the religion, as it is about the spirit, to me.

    And you don't have to beleive in much of anything to enjoy giving gifts to friends and family, enjoy spending a day with all the family, and so on. That more than anything is what modern christmas is.
    Zombies are the walking dead, they are not alive.

    What are you talking about? The problem in your (poor) example wouldn't be people saying Happy Festivus but pretending Merry Christmas is somehow horrible to say.

    No one cares if you say Merry Christmas. But if you say Happy Holidays, heads explode.

    Its interesting to hear your ideas of what Christianity is.

    I agree with you. Ben Stein is in fact Jewish.
