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?

Holiday Happiness. And this girls is wearing pants. No mention of Christ or Christmas. Obvious code for godless lesbianism.

Holiday wishes? I notice this Santa is dressed in brown in front of a brown wall which is an unChristian color and that one round ball looks entirely too much like a small basketball to me. Plus he is holding up a train which makes me think of making the trains run on time which is a fascist thing so I'm saying Obummer created this one.

People didn't have dongs back then either! Everyone was sealed off plastic, like Ken dolls. Stop pushing your time traveling dong agenda, homogays! Plus you went and made the card purple, like the head of a lust engorged dong. And you thought normal people wouldn't notice your perverted insolence.

media-cache-cd0.pinimg.com

Well, technically, Christmas was never a pagan holiday, it was always a Christian holiday.  It was just set on the same day as other religions' other holidays, the way sometimes Ramadan will overlap President's day or Lent might occur during a school's Spring break.

Usually we don't literally  mean that it used to be a pagan holiday, we're just making fun of the Christians because (1) it was created as a solstice-ish festival  explicitly to displace Saturnalia/recruit Imperial pagans to the church and (2) there was the normal amount of local and even overall cultural crossover and exchange involved with most of the Christmas traditions... that is to say, like 90% plus of the Christmas myth and like 99% of the rituals involved were borrowed from some other religion or secular group.

And, really, there's nothing  wrong with either of those two points in themselves.  Both of those things are  absolutely normal for both religious and secular cultural celebrations... the whole point is to include people (so if everyone in the city bakes a cake at the solstice, you add cakes to your list so there's no downside to joining your party) and to show up the neighbors ("oh, yeah?  Well our party has a BIGGER pool, with a  disco ball at the bottom).  This isn't something that anyone actually thinks makes Christianity evil or anything... in fact, if you ask a religious scholar or even a decently-educated Christian why christianity stole all its legends and shares stories with other religions, they'll shrug and tell you it's because the religion is more than a millenium old and Intellectual Property has only existed for a century or so.

What we're mocking when we say shiat like "Christianity stole Christmas from the Pagans" isn't the religion, because the religion has an official stance on this and it's "so what? winner gets to name the holiday".  It isn't religion in general, because anyone that passed middle school literature has noticed that mythologies have crossover and that's how it works.

We're making fun of  you, specifically, because you really, really care about your religion but the fact that you don't know any of this, and feel some need to defend the originality of something that doesn't claim to be original, makes you look  incredibly stupid.

smunns: My wife and I had lunch in Sacramento with Pastor Hagee, his wife and son. Genuine people. He practices what he preaches. Just an FYI.


You mean he's a frothing asshat in real life too?

And hand your card over to me.  He's not "Doctor Who."  He's the Doctor.   Doctor Who is the name of the show.

/why do I know that? I don't even watch it.

So...."Happy Holidays" is gonna destroy the Constitution?

What the entire nuclear-armed might of the Soviet Union failed to do, two teeny tiny little words are going to do?

Clemkadidlefark: John Hagee is a great preacher




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

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.


Its all Sarah Palin's fault. Her book on Christmas is a gateway book to actual non fiction books on Christmas.

To be fair, I think he's playing semantics. Christmas is a Christian holiday, but solstice and Yule are pagan. The fact that they all happen to fall on/about the same day is something Christians like to pretend doesn't happen. Most evangelicals have a weak grasp on history at best and really have no interest in learning information that contradicts their preconceptions.

That said I am really hoping this preacher was taken out of contex. That article makes him sound like a raving hate filled lunatic.

Isn't that like a necessary prerequisite for the job?

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.

Whichever one chooses to say to you, they are trying to be nice, and the appropriate response is "Thank you."


That's my MO.  I'm not yelling "BELIEVE IN CHRIST!" I'm trying to share with you the nice stuff.  And on the flip side, I don't go off the rails when someone extends a greeting for one of their special days.  I have plenty to get angry over - this isn't one of them.
