No, it is strictly a pagan ritual and it is a sin to observe Christmas.
I was doing some reading at thehistoryofchristmas****.
Here is what I found:
The Puritans passed laws that made it illegal to mention St. Nicolas' name, exchange gifts, light a candle, or sing Christmas carols. It is best to keep people in the dark.
Sounds like today's fed gov.
The idea of 'God' and God sending a son to save the world, an only begotten son, is all fantasy. Who is going to believe such nonsense?
Christians need to get a life.
Maybe a pilgrimage to Mecca will wake them from their slumber.
Anything to relieve them from oppression, living in catacombs or refusing to sign up for Obamacare would be manifestations of a repressive gov.
Anything to escape oppressive rule.
There can be one day each year where a taxslave, now healthcare slave, can at least feel free and Christmas Day is about the best we can do anymore.
Obama is a modern day Herod.

I do feel sorry for anyone who has to work, there is no reason for this constant shopping mania, I can,t believe people have to shop 365 days a year! I do realize some jobs are different, such as emergency services and health care, and to these people I say THANK YOU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Isaiah 9:6-7 6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (King James Version (KJV))

I am attempting to achieve a new record at 'disagrees'.
It's called dark humor. It is meant to not offend, maybe does, maybe to be resented, to be reluctantly admitted as truth, and to be humorous, even if it is deemed to be highly offensive. That's why it's dark humor. Santa Claus depicted being crucified in a painting is deemed art.
It was meant to be humorous, dark humor to make it enlightening. Except for the part apart Obama, he is indeed a modern day Herod. Nothing enlightening about Obama at all.
If you can't rely upon the Sky Wizard, then who can you rely upon?
Herod was indeed a king in the Roman Empire and he taxed citizens until he was loathed and hated. It's true. When he died, not many sympathetic souls wept.
North Dakota also has plenty of Herods willing to tax everybody they can.
In a time of Universal Deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act said George Orwell.
How about some dark humor about what Bush/Cheney left us for Christmas in 2008?...President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.
Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 y

More than four years after he left office, former President George W. Bush's approval rating now equal President Obama's, according to a new Washington Post/ ABC poll.
Forty-seven percent of Americans say they now approve of the former president, while 53 percent disapprove, according to the poll, which surveyed 1,000 adults from April 17-21. Mr. Obama's approval rating also stands at 47 percent. Imagine th

Hate the pope.. The question was for all you...low minded readers..
Do you believe God likes guns? Is He fond of random crazy killings and elementary school shootings???
Now only an absolute idiot would think God is about guns and school killings..
God judges people and their actions.. he doesnt decide about guns and shootings.. Those items actions were preformed by Gods children.. or maybe Satins children..
But God judges people.. Not guns and killings..
So therfore you Atheist idiots might look things up ABOUT the Bible before you open your pie hole and let your brains fall out..
It really amazes me how far left you people are.. I guess your comments explain why our country is going to hellllll No Morals, No Brains, No jobs, All living in sin grabbing up the free stuff..
Christ was in my Christmas..but I can see others of you were over at Satins house playing his game..

PJ14 You and your kind are the racist haters.. Your the ones who attack anyone that doesnt agree with Obama.. That shows you have no brain or mind of your own.. You can only do what Obama tells you to do.. You live in fear of being racist if you disagree with him so you follow his talking points
Just your actions show how really afraid you are of voiceing your own opinion. You never disagree with him.. Its just not normal. I disgree with my wife at times, and I am not afriad to voice my opinion but you Obama lovers are just plain scared to death to be your own person.. Your of the mind set that if you disagree you are racist. So let me ask you if you disagree with your wife are you waging a war on women? Thats how REALLY ignorant you liberals are.. Shell shocked, gutless, and afraid of your own shadow.

How does it feel to live in fear of saying what you believe.. What you feel? Must scare the heck out of you.. Afarid if you disagree with Obama people will call you a raciest..
Your a group of your own kind.. Yellow to the core.. Afarid to speak your mind or disagree with Obama becasue in your tiny brains that makes you a racist..
Racism is about hating blacks.. Its not about disliking Obamas policies..

Russ, if this is what you prefer, so be it. It is non of my business. I celebrate Christmas. Please quit attacking a religion, just to be mean.
Herod was a war monger, like Caesar, like Pilate, and did not help the poor. "Help the least of my people" could be the Obama chant. There are no references to poor people as "takers" in Christianity. "Takers" would better apply to the rich because "Easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven". The Pope just weighed in to remind the rich of that. The pope is clearly on Obama's side.
We are not in pending doom from Obama. We r from those who refer to the least of our people as takers. The hoarding of wealth by so many at the top has put us in more danger than did the USSR.
In your world Legend, who is rich? Republicans, Democrats, Famous Stars, Obama, Cheney, GW Bush? There are very few multi millionaires. Who has given back to society? Just Democrats? And no one else. What is considered rich? Money, Family, doing what is right? I have heard the scriptures and a person can take anything they want out of context and use it. So explain to me your point of your comment.

You are so full of miss information, whistletop. Romney paid less than 13% in income tax on $24 million in income. He also hid money in overseas accounts to avoid taxes. But, he aspired to be President???? The disagreement is with all high income individuals and the "gifts" that the Republicans gave them through the tax changes. You have no concept of how the rich got richer and you paid more. Sad commentary on your research.

I am not surprised at your last post, whistlepot. You do it every time you post your garbage and get caught. I am not miss-directing anything. My post follows yours and corrects your false premise, following the same topic. You are such a garbage poster and you get caught most all the time. You never deal in facts and follow the Rush Limbaugh line of total falsehoods and counter attacking. Just admit it!!! You have nothing to offer.
