the Lord can take care of this if it is proplem. It appears that a lot of christians are afraid to be attacted or put down.As Jesus fought back so should his followers
If this story wasn't so sad, I'd find it laughable. Just consider, Using a Catholic priest to Cover up the Greatest LIE of their Church, Their Pope & those that Rule with him.
Take a trip back to the early days of the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. For the first 2 or 3 hundred years after JESUS Arose into Heaven, Their was NO Special Days Recorded anywhere, where The Followers of JESUS, Celebrated His BIRTH. Indeed, AT the Same Time, Mary, the Mother of JESUS was dead & turning to dust, in the grave, SHE WAS NOT, honored, ( DESPITE THE LIES from HOLLYWOOD), She was just considered, A Blessed mother for Giving Birth to Jesus, Then like a Good Jewish Wife, She went on to have other children, fathered by her Husband.
All of that Hype you've been taught, was nothing but a Pack of Lies, Perpetrated by the Roman Catholic Church, In the Attempt of Blending their PAGAN gods With The Followers of JESUS.
And the Catholics gave the People a Warning, Accept the Facts the way WE teach them, Or DIE!
Some choice, Right?, Yet it worked
This is a Short version of the facts, & it's going to hurt many Luke warm Believers & Catholics, But I get most of my Catholic Information, From the Priest themselves. As well as the Vatican's own publications.
Another Fact of the time, Dec. 25 Th. is the middle of winter, NO SHEPHERD would be out tending his flock in the middle of winter!
Another fact; It took several hundred years before the first Catholic Induced Christmas to happen.
I do think most Christians do understand that Dec 25 is not Jesus's birthday and that it is just the day that we traditionally observe it. (I remember reading somewhere that Jesus was most likely born in one of the Spring months.)
I really don't think that Catholics are bad people (My own Mother is Catholic and one heck of an awesome lady.) Unfortunately for many Catholics very hard times are coming for their denomination of the Christian faith, reference the "Prophecy of the Popes" and the "Third Secret" presented to the three children at Fatima, Portugal in 1917.
If these prophecies prove to be true, complete destruction of the Catholic Church and Rome is coming.
As for my own beliefs, I do not tie them into any particular "denomination" but I do believe Jesus is the son of God. I also believe that he had a wife, after all he is part human.
Jesus was human, but he didn't come here to experience just being human. he came to suffer as we did and devote his entire life to saving us. Please don't believe some wacky stories about him, there are four stories in the bible which depict what his life was like on earth if you want to know the real story from the only people at that time who knew him. Our heavenly father had a clear mission for Jesus to be our savior and he did his job to the T. He lived his life each and everyday trying to help mankind every chance he got, he didn't have time for a wife when the whole world needed to be reminded of God's love.
To me you can not separate the holiday from the real meaning.. I think that any city that has christmas lights are in fact and endorsement of Christmas. If they place the lights then the nativity should be allowed to be put up. If any celebration of Christmas at schools or either Santa Claus of Frosty is seen then the nativity should be shown.. Why? Christmas is not a secular holiday but a Religious holiday just like Easter. Their is no separation from the Holiday and the religion that its from without the Christ there is no Christmas. So I think the war on Christmas is a load of crap and we need to specify and counter suit these as that. If a city can have Christmas parades it must be allowed to have the nativity there is no other way. You can not have Christmas without Christ. To me if you ban the nativity then all things of Christmas must be banned , ie Christmas sales, black Friday sales, etc.. and if we bring this to light watch the retail industry get back in line too since They celebrate Christmas for money. I celebrate Christmas for giving.
Cheers! Does anyone want a good piece of some of my Birthday cake for Jesus... Its always a white cake , white Icing. that represents the purity of his birth, and love.
Merry Christmas bring Christmas back to the family and watch it grow in public
QUESTER55: Wow, I pray for you, that your hate filled soul will realize your mistakes and come back to the one true faith, the Catholic church.

Everyone has hope. Atheists just hope for a world without dogmatic, oppressive religion. :)
(Though I am an atheist and have never considered myself to be a democrat)

Being intolerant of a religion is unAmerican. GTFO!

It’s sort of crazy how an atheistic “war on christmas” might bring christmas more humbly in-line with the true meaning of it. Love of god, not love of statues at government offices, new electronics and deals.

There already are atheists in muslim countries protesting islam… They can be in many countries at once, you know.

As an atheist, Tom, I can only wish all other Christians were as gracious and considerate as you. :)
