I guess because I have no problem with others who celebrate a different religious or religion (or who don't believe in anything), why have a problem with mine? Cause you don't believe? Don't partake? Pretty simple.
When I found out I had "thumbs downed" your post, I kind of thought it was ironic. But I know this forum, and I know I was going to get pummeled for a post like this, and I don't have the time, nor gumption to "battle it out"... but, I thought I would let you know that your post did in fact suck I am sure you disagree as many will, so have at it 👍
Nobody cares if you practice your religion in your place of worship, at home, or even in public so long as it's not permanent installations on public land that everybody, including non-christians pay for. It's when you force it down the throats of others that pisses people off. Separation of church and state isn't some war, so enough with the "woe-is-me, they're trying to exterminate us" nonsense. Also, Christmas isn't even a Christian holiday. You raped that from "pagans" when you force-assimilated them after slaughtering them wasn't effective enough. And American "tradition?" America does have a tradition of exclusion, a tradition of treating others as lower citizens (in this case, non-Christians). Luckily, that tradition is being wiped out slowly and steadily.
The purpose of my very sarcastic post was to point out how ludicrous it is to suggest that there is some "war" against Christians when I and everybody else is surrounded by it everywhere we go. I can't walk 2 blocks here without seeing a church or Christian shop or organization. 1 block in the south (not that anybody walks in the south).
I was once a normal kid
Till the Devil came down and flipped my lid
He gave me a switchblade and he gave me a muse
Then he vomited acid all over my shoes
I killed nobody nor raped.
I don't force feed anyone anything.
I don't treat anyone as they were lower than me.
I don't exclude anyone.
Who cares if there is a Christian shop on every corner? They have the same rights as the Muslims who picked a real famous corner, no?
The celebration of Jesus birthday isn't Christian? Ummmmk
Why would Muslim doctrines ALL OF A SUDDEN be ADDED to our courtrooms?
And I ,as a Christian, believe there is a "war" against those that believe. Right or wrong, that's what I believe.
I do accept that others have different opinions though.
Enjoy your burrito.
Regarding Christmas, hey, if you are celebrating the birth of Jesus without all the pagan celebrations, kudos to you. To be honest, I actually like Christmas, though mostly because it's time with my family that I normally don't get. The food is also amazing. That being said, I don't expect others to celebrate it and I believe government-funded sites and operations (courts, schools, etc.) should play no part whatsoever (e.g. I don't want my public school forcing my child to pray and if he doesn't want to say "god" in the pledge, which originally didn't include it, he shouldn't have to).
As for adding Muslim doctrines to the courtrooms, don't worry, it won't happen, because religion has no place in a court of law. I see you didn't get my point there either. That includes the ten commandments.
Be sure to print this out and bring it to church as evidence of the war against Christianity. The only "war" is against the attempts by a vocal few to create a Christian Theocracy by dismantling the separation of church and state. Oh, look, another Christian-created war.
