None of that is simply a matter of opinion, it is a matter of fact.
    what other religious holiday is celebrated by those who fought and created this nation? IOW what religion were the founders?

    last i heard there were no muslims or buddhists or wiccans following the original George across the Potomac....may have been a few jewish soldiers but thats it.

    so why are you surprised that Christmas is the only religious holiday that receives so much attention?

    and my final question - what religious holiday receives the most negative attention in this country???

    1) i meant from another religion.

    2) really? i never hear any negative vibes over ramadan. no one tells them to eat during the day or to take down their ramadan tree. and i live in a city full of muslims and even muslim leaders on the pro sports teams as well as a very healthy population of southern rednecks that would be the first to complain. never a peep.

    Just wondering.

    I heard he was a real tight-wad when it came to helping the sick and hungry. It was a local Jerusalem issue. Nothing for the Son of God to worry about...
    Allah should take care of them, since he is the peaceful one whose name that event was done in!!


    No one on earth does more to take care of the sick and hungry than us.
    Try a different tack.


    2 pretty lame arguments.

    Apparently not in this case.

    I say divert Ethiopian AIDS money to the first responders until they're cared for....then resume AZT ddI to Africa.

    This is one area I will be PROUD to know my tax dollars are being allocated.

    First, I have no problem with folks celebrating Christmas.

    But, lets don't forget that our most influential Founding Fathers were Deist, and Deist have no religious holidays. Men like Jefferson, Paine, Adams and to some extent Washington were all Deist.

    The fact that Thomas Jefferson was a Deist is why we have no state sponsored religion. This from the man who single-handedly wrote the Declaration of Independence. In Jefferson's Bible, he does not reference a god.

    You sight George Washington crossing the Potomac. Washington vaccilated between Deism and his Christian religion.

    NPRs Nina Totenberg apologizes for saying the word Christmas:

    You lefties are really a bit silly with the levels you stoop to in the name of political correctness.
    Sounds a bit absurd to me. What a ridiculous thing to tie your shorts into a knot over...
