Yeah, right, idiot...

When Christ comes into your life you’re accountable for your actions.

Can’t have that... It spoils all our “fun.”

If you think religion makes the HOLIDAYS (”holy days”) stressful — you’re gonna be a WRECK on Judgment Day.

Not acknowledging the origin of the word Christmas is Christ...I want to see these punks tell muslims not to honor/worship their religious holidays because it mucks it all up.

NBC=No Brain Cells, or something like that.

Someone might explain to the idiot that without religion there wouldn’t be the “Holiday”.

The word holiday derived from the notion of "Holy Day", and gradually evolved to its current form. The word holiday comes from the Old English word hāligdæg. The word originally referred only to special religious days. In modern use, it means any special day of rest or relaxation, as opposed to normal days away from work or school.

I remember now something about this woman from years ago. Dr. Nancy Snyderman, commenting on the first “test tube” baby. Someone was asking her if this wasn’t an attempt to take things out of God’s hands. Her reply, “This IS out of God’s hands.” Breathtaking. Not surprising that she thinks religion messes up a religious holiday. All that God stuff and all. Sheesh.

Yeah, right.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Stressful? No, that isn't stressful. Stressful is battling some other poor soul for a twenty-dollar toy that will be forgotten and discarded by spring. Stressful is caring whether your football team wins between the turkey and the pumpkin pie. Stressful is sniping at your relatives for petty and imagined offenses. When God lays before you the gift of eternal life and all you have to do is open yourself to it and accept it in the humility of someone who cannot possibly deserve it, that isn't stress, it's the exact opposite.

If anyone remembers this but I remember watching this when I was in middle school. A show called -> A Mac Davis Special: Christmas Odyssey - 2010. The name of “Christmas Day” was replaced with “Commerce Day” and what I remember, anyone who referred it to as Christmas day got in trouble.

How things are so messed up these days ! Political correctness has more than run amok and tired of more than 20 years of it too.

The “religion stuff” really mucks things up???? Really? Does he not realize that the “religion stuff” is why we have a Christmas holiday to begin with? People really are so mis-educated. And, I suppose he thinks he is very intelligent.

< I>Nancy Snyderman - never did like her

I didn't read the article, but I thought it had to be her. I remember a couple of years ago she was on the Today Show (she's a frequent 'expert' guest) and she looked right into the camera and made the baldfaced lie that some vaccine that was getting pushed at the time (HPV?) was 100% safe and it should be taken without reservations. She had no way of knowing that to be so. The testing was sparse, and there is always an element of danger with vaccines. She could have said that the benefits outweighed the risks, and that would have been ok, but she didn't go that route. Just lie to the camera.
I don't like her either, I'm not surprised that she has no reverence for God.

LOL

I really shake my head and marvel at the many people know whobare looking for reasons to ignore God and even trying to rationalize denying God’s existence.

I think much of it has to do with self absolution.

If there is no God, by their mere proclamation, then their conscience is cleared by self absorbed lack of responsibility.

No God, no morale absolutes, just relativism and objectifying others.

The only reason for Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Sort of makes it hard to take the religion out of it.
As for shopping/buying things we do that round the clock all year. Nothing special about that

The Left is redefining corporate America. If it really matters, Comcast customers can dump their cable/fiber subscriptions and get a sat subscription, thereby sending a message this nonsense will not be patronized.

Of the 60 million that voted R, there are probably 15 million willing to participate in a legitimate, coordinated economic message of sorts.

No, the stressful part is that your extended family expects a complete Christmas dinner, presents, a spotless house to cone to, homemade cookies and fudge, etc ... Which I really don’t mind doing but it is stressful!

The calming part is the real reason for Christmas— celebrating the birth of Jesus and reflecting at Mass on how I can be a better person in the new year.
