WAR ON CHRISTMAS « The Burning Platform

Christmas sucks! It's essentially a pagan celebration of the winter solstice brought about by the Romans in the 3rd century at the Council of Nicea as a compromise between christianity and paganism to establish a state religion. It's where we get the doctrine of the trinity, christmas, the celebration of the winter solstice, and easter, spring fertility rites.

Jesus was born Sept 11, 3 BC, we know this from the astronomical conjuction of the five visible planets in that year, the sign which the wise men of Egypt saw two years before they arrived in Jerusalem. This is the time of year shepherds would have been in their fields tending flocks, not Decemember.

September 11, quite a coincidence, eh? Given that the end of the year is a time of family get togethers for many, the ministry I've supported for over 20 years which was founded in the 1960's by a wonderful man of god, simply uses the phrase Happy Holidays, which conveys the same meaning without the pagan observance.

Do my kids still get gifts, yes, and we still decorate. I'm not an asshole, well, anyway, and I'm thankful the kids are old enough not to believe in fairy tales like Satan Claus and the easter bunny. Bunnies don't lay eggs. We talk about what God says in his word in our household, the truth. Not a bunch of made up bullshit from mainstream religion and perpetuated by the media.

It's a bit ironic that this athiest hates a pagan holiday. Besides that, the first amendment is not a freedom from religion amendment, it's freedom of religion.

This Spring we'll talk more about what day was Jesus Christ crucified on the cross. It wasn't good Friday.
