Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas. I think we can all agree that we should be putting Christ back into Christmas. We need to stop the secularization of this country and get it back to its Christian roots, just as the founding fathers intended.

I see that you have time to post on Eschaton:

"Easter? Isn't that where Jesus was killed and then was buried and came out of his tomb and saw his shadow and we have six more weeks of winter?
Typical loser liberal, no reverance for what a clear majority of Amercans believe in.
Laugh now, loser, I hope you enjoy eternity in a lake of fire."

Why haven't you accepted my challenge yet? Scared? I am calling you out - you, not an army of your buddies either. You said previously that you encounter nothing but namecalling on liberal blogs, but as I found when I read the above comment, you are mighty good at dishing out names yourself. And if you read the rebuttals to your comments on Eschaton, you'll find that you basically got served. You appear to have no sense of humor and not much more understanding of social/political issues, as evidenced in your latest post. There are still nothing but the Word of Bush and unsubstantiated claims on this site. Where's the evidence that the founding fathers intended for us to be a Christian nation? For every hint that that might have some truth, there are several indications that it is false. Many of the founding fathers were deists and/or advocated the separaton of church and state. And about Christmas, the Puritans thought it was a fluff holiday and preferred to work instead! Later, Christmas came into vogue but was more of a raucous party as opposed to a solemn celebration of Jesus' birth. It's only relatively recently that Christmas took on its modern character. I would think that a bigger threat to the true meaning of Christmas than liberals saying "Happy Holidays" (notice that Bush says it too1 Why does he hate Jesus?) would be the overcommercialization of the holiday and rightwingers such as yourselves twisting the word of Jesus for your own purposes.

In the words of your Fearful Leader, "Bring it on."

You are claiming to be such a good Christian, yet you spell Christian with a small c. Christian is a proper noun referring to those of us who worship God through Jesus Christ. I really resent people like yourself who use the Christian faith for your own right wing agenda. As a Christian, I believe that respect is due for all God's creation. I believe God loves all of us. I believe God does not want us to kill each other and destroy the world with our greedy plans for world domination. I believe God would want us to research safer, cleaner fuels to use in place of oil. I believe God would want us to use the brains he gave us to allow scientific research to benefit and advance our society. I pray that God will release you from you hard hearted nature.

I agree, who founded our country? Not a single guy. The declaration of independance was signed by 13 men after they prayed for a couple hours. Why does it have "In God we trust" on our curency. My kids school isn't aloud to celibrate Christmas because it might offend the few non- Christains. Fine I say, let them have a holiday program and keep it politacly correct so noone is hurt. Just have it some other time. We are busy celibrating Christ's birth. The reason why our forefathers came here. Anonymous- you are name calling but won't sign yours? Lynne

You want to put Christ where? Back into Christmas? You cannot be serious, since when did Christ have ANYTHING to do with Christmas? Christmas was repackaged LONG ago, hell to this day Coca Cola still holds the copyright to the image of Santa.

Where in the Bible does it tell the story of Santa Claus, or Rudolph, or tell us to put up our Christmas Trees, and/or Misletoe or Wreaths. If you actually read the Bible, you would know that Christ was born after the Spring, not on December 25th. It is a pagan holiday we celebrate on Christmas. How do you like THEM apples?!?!

Stop the secularization of this country, as if I can twirl a dead cat in this country and NOT hit a Christian Church!!

And by the way, if you think our Founding Fathers were such good Christians, you should know that they Didn't believe in the Immaculate Conception. They were products of the "Enlightenment." Not only did they NOT believe Jesus was born from a virgin birth, they also didn't want this country to confuse religious matters, with matters of the state. They ARE seperate matters all together in this country. Or at least they USED to be.

If you want a specific date for a birthday, would it be spring in the land Christ was born? During tax time. Does the exact date count? Todays traditions have nothing to do with Christain beliefs. Pagens were first to start such rituals at "Christan" traditions incorporated at their "conversion", to make it easier. I am intrested to know where you came up with the idea the founding fathers didn't believe in imaculate conception? And who would want to swing a dead cat? Or is that one of your rituals?

Oh leave Christmas alone.

I like Midnight Mass.

I like presents.

I like a day off.

We all get along for a day. Just one friggin' day.

You know, when both sides stopped shooting during WW1 and sang 'Stille Nacht' together.

Who cares when Jesus was born!??

Freakin' human race. All we do is fight. Now I'm depressed. I'm turning in my Democratic Party membership card and going to bed.

He's running through the woods so black
A loyal servant of christ
Dogs are barking down his back
He's running for his life

He came with words of love and peace
These heathens had to be saved
He thought that he could make them see
Instead he was enslaved

In captivity he spoke of god
To all he met he preached
But when his master's patience ran out
He knew he had to flee

Tears are running down his cheeks
As he sobbign realizes
That in this land his god is weak
And today he's going to die

He stumbles out onto an open field
Where an old oak tree grows
In the branches hang men of three
Dressed in preacher robes

His knees refuse to carry him on
Terror shines in his eyes
His faith in christ is almost gone
His god's left him to die
Below the dead he says his prayers
To the god he thought was alive
When he hears a calm voice say:
"SHUT HIM UP AND HANG HIM HIGH!"

As his breath leaves his eyes open wide
A bright light comes from above
He greets this light with a smile
And thinks: "There is a God"

The sound of eight hooves reaches his ears
Comes from the heavenly light
Two wolves' howls fill his heart with fear
And he sees two ravens fly
Down from the sky a warlord rides
Like fire his one eye glows
And just before the preacher dies
He knows his god is false
