Just Say It

Here we go again. Is it just me, or are more people making a stink about using the word "Christmas" every year? Lots of stores are chucking the term and replacing it with a nice generic "Happy Holidays" in an effort to not offend non-Christians who declare the use of the word Christmas to be discriminating against them. Hello?

This is sounding eerily like Jerry Jenkin's Underground Zealot Series. We're moving quickly toward a nation that wants to get rid of every mention and reminder of God from public life, or at least the Christian God. Seems all the people who go around talking about tolerance are being intolerant of us. I'm sorry, but Christians are not about hate and discrimination—quite the opposite. Even still, eventually Christians will be labeled as hate-mongers simply because what we believe offends other people. To see people getting so antsy over the use of a word shows how close we really are to losing our freedom of religion.

Just say Merry Christmas.

Well you know my beliefs, I'm a die hard Christian who believes what the Bible teaches. Trouble is, the Bible never mentions celebrating Christ's birth, actually it mentions 'regarding every day the same'...

I agree that our culture is doing all they can to remove God and Jesus from the picture, but the fact remains that Christmas was a pagan holiday long before it was a Christian one...

Quick history note: The puritans did not hold a Christmas celebration, believing it to be a pagan waste of time...

I'm not saying forget about Christmas, I'm just saying pick your battles. Don't be too offended when people try to take Christ out of something that he was never ment to be in...

Have a good day.
