I’m always dumbfounded at what causes some Christians choose to go to the mat fighting for their Lord.
Like Christmas. Like getting mad at Wal-Mart for not saying Merry Christmas. Like wanting to BOYCOTT stores who won’t say “Merry Christmas”
Hey I’m all for boycotting Wal-Mart. Boycott Wal-Mart for their anti-labor policies, crappy way they treat their employee, how they put companies out of business for refusing to pay a fair price for their goods, or the fact that they ruin small town business.
But not for not saying Merry Christmas.
Really? Frankly I would prefer that Wal-mart and ALL the merchandisers who see this holy time as profit making time would find another word for my religious holiday.
Please don’t wish me a Merry Christmas because I worship a different God than you. Or at least I should be worshiping a different God.
What is Christian about forcing others to acknowledge our religious observance?
When did Jesus tell us to force everyone to celebrate his birth?
Christmas carols in school concerts?
Well I just don’t get the controversy. I grew up in a school district with lots of Jewish kids. We never had to do anything in school on Jewish holidays because so many kids would be absent it wasn’t worth doing anything important. We sang Hanukah songs (and I still know all the words to a lot of them) AND Christmas songs.
Why can’t we sing ALL of the cultural and religious songs of the season instead of vague songs about winter?
I live in Iowa. I don’t WANT to sing or hear songs about WINTER thank you very much.
I think this so called war on Christmas is just laziness on the part of Christians.
Much easier to write a letter to Wal-Mart complaining about their holiday greeting than to do something like, you know, feed the poor, clothe the naked, visit those in prison.
