My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

That is the key Kelly Ann, most people only respect their own beliefs and faiths, I do not begrudge anyone who believes differently but no need to get nasty, it almost proves the opposite of what you are doing, I am not saying I take a back seat, do they use the US dollar??? Well, maybe they shouldn't it does state in God We Trust!

I agree with Kelly Ann. Certainly we can agree to disagree with others without attacking them. This is just plain mean-spirited. Bad enough that we're expected to blush if we "err" by saying "Merry Christmas" to someone in passing instead of "Happy Holidays."

Wow! What a waste of time. I am not sure what they are going to accomplish by their actions.

And they would like to see you prove there is one.


I personally don't see anything wrong with this. They are trying to spread their beliefs. I always see billboards and things saying believe in God. They are saying don't. Plus they bring up valid points.

They are trying to sell books, Billy. They can advance their beliefs, I think that's fine. But using the vehicle of Christmas to do it is, in my book, disingenuous.
