lIts like trying to educate pork in here.....Christmas is certainly about Christ. Perhaps manh don't celebrate it that way but a lot of us do. The Romans made the celebration in Dec as it was already a day of celebration in Roman times so it was thought it would be an easier way to bring the people together. The comercialization of Christmas was well done by the retail industry and economics but even gift giving has its roots in the celebration. Even if you don't celebrate it as such, Christmas is the celebration of Christ. Why do you think the atheist get so upset when they see a manager. The word Christ in Christmas is a hint to its origins. Celestial events reported at Christ's birth point to his actual birth being sometime in April but the date is not the important thing, the remembrance is. There are billions who don't celebrate or believe, but there are billions who do.Greenbeanz is saying the meaning of Christmas is gone and it has been commercialised beyond what it should be about. Aside from the fact that it was taken from a pagan ritual was was never about Christ.Ok...Christmas has fuck all to do with the Bible. While of course Fury is entitled to his opinion, anyone should be free to disagree with him without being threatened by his gang. That is the crux of the problem. That and the insistence that he is both foolish and uneducated and yet still a great role model, according to the man himself. It's also that he spouts born again Christian rhetoric, mixed up with misogynistic bullshit and tries to sell it as good advice for everyone.
It's might make you feel all cosy to pretend that he is the one striking out for freedom of speech, but in reality he is just as stupid as those asking for him to be banned from SPOTY, in trying to insist that there are no consequences for saying dumb things.
Chag Sameach -Happy Hannukah :-)
Im not a christian or nor do I read the bible but I do know that Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus and it even has a little clue in the name.....
Some people should think before they post
Careful I know you come from an Island of Nazi sympathizers but no need for the anti-semitic stuff
Go on then educate me. Start at the beginning,...with let's say...the Hebrews?
Then you can tell me about all the instances of Birthdays in the Bible and what the Gentiles did whilst celebrating them.(beheadings etc) Then you can show me all the incidences of early Christians reminding people that Jesus Birth and not death was the important thing in their faith. Then you can wake up and have your cornflakes.
A God coming down to earth in the shape of a man ? Sounds pretty Roman to me
Nazi sympathisers? Wash your mouth out!
We were occupied by the Nazis. There were more armed soldiers in Guernsey than there were Guernsey people you twat! We were left to rot by the british.
You fucking clown!
