Ok I have another random thought . Social Services is a government program/ agency, right?

Why are the anti christmas protesters not protesting against this government agency organizing a program to get people to adopt a family and share Christmas with them?


Makes you go hmmm doesn't it?

  • Because helping families in need in the spirit of the season isn't the same as posting baby Jesus-es everywhere. I'm sure non Christians appreciate the good will done during the season, even if they don't believe in the Christian aspect. One must remember that Christmas is not a Christian monopolized day. There is secular and Christian Christmas, and there are even the other faiths' meanings celebrated, as well. One needn't believe as others do to appreciate the general well wishing of the season. Just because people share Christmas doesn't mean they're sharing Jesus or Christianity.

  • Because it's something they don't have to see, hear or in any way be aware of, so why bother? They go on a rampage about Christmas displays they have to see, mentions of G-/Jesus they have to hear.

  • Considering hardly any Christians bother to show up for Mass on Christ's Mass (nevermind how many of them never go to Mass of any kind because their denomination had eliminated them), they're hardly in any position to bitch about what anyone else does or does not do for it.

  • Actually the Masses are packed on Christmas in every Catholic Church I've ever attended. I'll agree with you, though, that many other churches are empty, and I think that is sad.

  • The only thing that makes me go hmmmm is this constant beating of this damned dead horse, and before Thanksgiving even! Let's leave off this Christmas shit for another couple weeks at least.
