    hmm lets see here Christmas as been around for hurnds n hurds of years i dont think a lil name change form Christmas to Holiday will bring it to a end. and wasn't it a pagan Holiday to start with ?

    wait wasny Chrsit a Jew so wondt the real Christmas be Chanukah? Since we are called to be Christ like and snice he was Jew wondt it be Christ like to be a Jew ?

    A oher thing i tohught we wneret to lie as chstians yet 99% of kids in the US where told about santa claus which came about around the 1820 so one would think it started way way before "todays time" i bet ppl thought adding saint Nick was War on Christmas.

    as for happy holiday saying i alwasy thought it sa way of saying happy *insert the holiday you do here* ek gas jsut trying to think maybe not everyone does the Christian Christmas as we know it. What do you say to jew? agian Chist was a Jew i dont think you would be saying happy Christmas to him if he came to your house.

    So Christians aren't being persecuted? Well, glad we settled that one. So what's the issue, then? I'm confused now.

    That settles it as far as Machzero is concerned. There is no persecution of believers in Christmas or Christmas itself, so there is no war on Christmas. Do you think he will leave the thread because he sees no point in defending something which needs no defense?

    persecuted

    1
    : to harass or punish in a manner designed to injure, grieve, or afflict; specifically : to cause to suffer because of belief

    Well, which is it? Are Christians being persecuted or not?

    If you don't believe there is a war on Christmas, you are free to leave, as I said and as should be obvious :doh:

    Ask yourself a question? Are we discussing the War on Christmas or the War on Christians? That should answer your other question

    Is Christmas no longer a Christian holiday? Is there not a group of people who feel Christians are being unfairly singled out for mistreatment? It's reasonable to connect the two groups.

    You're unwilling to answer my question, then?

    Then so was yours. It wasn't an argument, anyway, so your accusation is illogical.

    Christmas is an American federal holiday :wave:
    Is that what you allege is being done, in the name of diversity? Just so we know
    I believe I answered your question. So here's one for you. What is your intent in the War on Christmas?

    So it's secular, then?

    I gave zero indication of that. Is that what you allege is being done? I know I've seen many right-wing groups claiming unjust treatment of Christians in the states. And, frankly, it wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    Care to link to the answer? I saw you answer a question with a question, but that isn't really an answer. I have read all of the posts in this thread and I don't see where you clearly answered my question, so save your own until you answer mine.

    The War on Christmas is a small arena of the far more important War on Fruitcakes. Comparatively, the WoC is irrelevant.

    The War on Thanksgiving is a minor skirmish leading up to the major engagements in the War on Christmas.

    That's not the X-axis.
