noitsnot: Mad_Radhu: Sin_City_Superhero: "Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will not be in danger in any way if someone says 'Merry Christmas' around you."

But all hell is gonna break loose if someone says "Happy Holidays"?

You may laugh, but I saw the War on Christmas unfold before my very eyes last night:

I'd like to wish a hearty seasonal FOAD to all Fark atheist snarklibs and mockers of Christ.

And when 0fuk0 or his agents command you to try and rob me of life and liberty, I'll be more than ready to expedite your trip to confirm your hypothesis on whether there's a Maker.

Why is it that the loudest "Christians" are always the least "Christ-like" or at least the most bigoted and spiteful.

I'm sure I'd be astonished by what it would take for you to classify someone as a bad preacher.

[my user name] to all of you farkers!

While Saturnalia is actually supposed to end on the solstice, I think my favorite time of year is this week between the commercial craziness of Christmas and the reboot that comes with the new year.  It's especially awesome this year cause we are about to get a house full of old friends for a few days.

Old friends, time off, and a fully stocked bar.  What could be better?

Mad_Radhu: Mrtraveler01: I'm the worst 26 year old ever. I own one of these instead of an ipod or mp3 player because I like listening to the radio. I also like watching CBS and NBC Evening/Nightly News instead of solely relying on the internet for my news.

[g-ecx.images-amazon.com image 300x241]


They are not terrible, and Brian Williams is a pretty awesome guy, but keep in mind that these two news organizations are run by Viacom and Comcast respectively, so there could be a bit of a slant towards reporting the narrative that their corporate masters want to get across. Plus, the constant Cialis ads just give me creepy visions of old, wrinkly Boomers boning.

Also, unless you are listening to NPR, you're probably only going to hear the 100 or so songs that Clear Channel has put on their corporate iPod and shuffled.  Plus, my Windows Phone has an FM radio built in, so technically I own one of those in addition to having a music player and the ability to stream just about any station in the world with TuneIn, and download any Podcast I want to hear, so it is not like you have to choose one over the other.


I love Tunein and have it downloaded on my phone. But unfortunately I can't use it where I work because the signal is pretty lousy, so I bring in my Walkman instead. I agree that most of the stations play the same songs over and over again, but there are a couple of FM stations here in St. Louis that have some individual identity to them so they're still listenable. I also listen to the FM Sports Talk station as well as NPR.

keylock71: Diogenes: keylock71: "Humanists are now making the claim that Christmas was originally a pagan holiday," he said. "Hey, dummy, look at the word: Christ-mas."

Wow...

I'd like to be outraged, but it's just so pathetic that he's missed the entire point of pointing out the historical origins of certain practices and traditions that have come to be associated with the holiday.

Very little that these willfully ignorant assholes say or do outrages me anymore, to be honest.

I'm just amazed at the level of ignorance of his own religion this pastor is displaying. 'Course, it's not nearly as pathetic as all the morons sitting in front of him nodding in agreement.



Yeh, yeh! He ig'nint!  Yeh!

Okay here's what I understand about Paganism.

Pagans new pagans are wiccians right?

Then how come people who say they are druids when In reality no one knows what the druids really worshipped at Stonehenge? There was an oral tradition among the original druids rather than a written one. 
By the time the celts arrived Stonehenge was already ancient anyway.

I'm having leftover Jesus birthday cake right now. First year in my memory, but I am assured that it is a long-cherished tradition that hails back to the Founding Fathers. Also, there were 36 candles, because Jesus was 36 when he died. Just your typical, suburban, Southern evangelical ("Merry!!!") Christmas.

I live in San Antonio, where Hagee's church is located, and I made the mistake of attending one of his services over 20 years ago.  I'm a Christian, and I was very uncomfortable.  He's very big on the end times.

No idea what these is even supposed to mean. How do you figure out what someone is really like from eating lunch with him (in Sacramento of all places)? What exactly was he practicing while shoveling food in his mouth? What'd he do - say grace before every helping? Turn his water into wine? Make a little Jesus statue out of his mashed potatoes?
