The nativity scene took place in Jerusalem, correct? So "Jesus" is Jewish, right? From my understanding of the christian bible, Christians don't agree with Judaism (that is what jewish religion is called, right?) So why do Christians display the nativity scene? Why do they believe in "Jesus" when he is not their religion? Why don't Christians have their own form of "Jesus"? Why do they have the Jewish form of "Jesus"?
I'm atheist so I can't answer these questions, which is also why "Jesus" is in quotes. I'm not being offensive or sarcastic. The quotes just seemed like the right way to put it since I am not a believer.
ETA I have to say I am quite amazed. I really figured this post would be more hateful than what it is. Not that that is what I was going for, because it wasn't. But this is MC, and all religion posts I've seen in all the years I have been here have always turned into one giant bash fest.
I am blown away. Seriously! You ladies, most of you anyways, are awesome! :D
Thank you for keeping this civil!
