i don’t hate christmas. nor do i hate christians. quite the contrary (on both counts).

i am actually quite a bit “in the spirit” this year. on all sorts of levels. i’m enjoying the time of year, the weather, the music, the gift-giving, the cooking and am getting excited to see my family — especially my bro, who is back in the US from Korea, currently visiting his adorable daughters down south, in the OC.

some of my favorite people are christian. i was one for a while. a lot of my favorite people are catholic. when i grew up, none of this was considered a liability as far as i, or most people i knew, were concerned.

but WTF is going on with some of these people nowadays??? whining, hating, spewing… basically making a *really* bad name for the rest, who are actually good, caring, compassionate and, best of all, know how to mind their own f’ing bidness.

[12:16] jayembee: but then again, amusing that Christians should be fighthing for the right to associate their pagan phallic symbols with the Messiah
[12:16] riseyp: ROFL – exactly

Critics Aren’t Keeping Quiet Over ‘Silent Night’ Lyrics Change

“Similarly, the group Concerned Women for America has issued a “naughty or nice” list of retailers “showing which businesses are honoring the reason for the season (the birth of Jesus), which ones are not and which have mixed records.”

[15:39] jayembee: Except that Jesus was born in early January
[15:39] jayembee: and most of the things that we associate with Christmas are pagan
[15:40] jayembee: why don’t these f**king morons know anything about their own f**king religion that they insist on forcing down our throats?
[15:44] jayembee: And this says it all

At one local Target, in Colma, most of the in-store advertising offers a generic “Gatherround.” One of the few advertising mentions of the C-word is above a Christmas card rack that says, “Celebrate Christmas.” That’s not good enough for American Family Association President Tim Wildmon, who wants to see “Merry Christmas” signs displayed prominently “if they expect Christians to come in and buy products during this so-called season.” And he isn’t worried if they offend people who aren’t Christian. “They can walk right by the sign,” Wildmon said. “It’s a federal holiday. If someone is upset by that, well, they should know that they are living in a predominantly Christian nation.”

Unfortunately, this is not a joke:
‘Holiday’ Cards Ring Hollow for Some on Bushes’ List

some of the gems to be found within:

There are a growing number of groups … that believe there is, in the words of the Heritage Foundation, a “war on Christmas” involving an “ever-stronger push toward a neutered ‘holiday’ season so that non-Christians won’t be even the slightest bit offended.”

Like this time of year was invented by Christians or something??? Idiots.

[William A. Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights] was not mollified by a letter from Lands’ End saying it “adopted the ‘holiday’ terminology as a way to comply with one of the basic freedoms granted to all Americans: freedom of religion.”

“Ninety-six percent of Americans celebrate Christmas,” Donohue said. “Spare me the diversity lecture.”
