...lo and behold, Christian Evangelists are joining the war on Christmas! In this video they go so far as to acknowledge the pagan origins of Christmas.



CHRISTIANS JOIN THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS




Quote:
The funniest quote from this video:

“People need to stop lying to their children, telling them that Santa Claus exists”


Oh...migod...they said SEX and FERTILITY! :shock: :P


AND ONE MORE!

Merry Fucking Christmas

I am really fed up with the War on Saturnalia. For too long, these christians have usurped our ancient traditional mid-winter holiday, and replaced it with their foolish fairy tale.

Quote:
Winter Solstice: The Unconquered Sun

The Roman midwinter holiday, Saturnalia, was both a gigantic fair and a festival of the home. Riotous merry-making took place, and the halls of houses were decked with boughs of laurel and evergreen trees. Lamps were kept burning to ward off the spirits of darkness. Schools were closed, the army rested, and no criminals were executed. Friends visited one another, bringing good-luck gifts of fruit, cakes, candles, dolls, jewellery, and incense. Temples were decorated with evergreens symbolizing life's continuity, and processions of people with masked or blackened faces and fantastic hats danced through the streets.

I hereby declare a war on New Year's.

I'm already old enough, and don't want a New Year's, although the alternative sounds scarier.

Also, everyone drinks too much, and then are depressed all of January.

I can't wait for Arbor Day. I'm going to set up a bunch of fake evergreens in my front yard and hang little Ronald Reagan heads on them.

I'll go along with that. Let's cancel out counting birthdays. I am happy for the ones I've had, but I'd just as soon not get any older according to numbers. Let me be as old as I WANT to be. Let's combine Christmas with Valentine's Day and make it a real LOVE holiday. We wouldn't even have to change the colors much. Let's combine St. Patrick's Day, Easter, and Arbor Day...and really go GREEN. Let's change Halloween to December 12 so it can coincide with the date of the SCOTUS's decision to appoint Bush as the winner of the 2000 presidential election. Everybody who disagrees with that decision can wear black as a symbol of protest...and mourning for the loss of lives and freedoms that have been the result.

Catherine, what great ideas. When are we going to make our 'Progressives Calendar'? I like your thinking!

Shoe had the idea about little Reagn heads! Wish I could claim the idea, but I can't. :D

Yes, I should have labeled that as shoe's remark. Sorry shoe.

I love the idea though, of a progressive's calendar that puts holidays in a more livable perspective. I welcome anything that puts life today in a more livable perspective.
