Are you excited that we are back to saying Merry Christmas all we want instead of happy holidays?


I mean I am seeing it it everywhere, like we who own Christmas being Christian can say Merry Christmas all we want now. This president thinks it is a great thing and recommends it and I love it. Don't you? Look at all those world wide who would love to be able to say and live it as we do but cannot being persecuted for their belief but we are free to celebrate ours and let us do it an extra for those who cannot. OK? Merry Christmas!!! How many Merry Christmas's do you think we can get here before Christmas?

    I wonder about all this. The legal concept goes kind of like this. Christmas Christian stuff in an office is probably OK. The problem would be if it led to a hostile work environment for non-Christians and Christians. That would be discrimination.

    I love your response. I was speaking with my prescription provider today and when the call ended she said, "Merry Christmas." This person had no idea whether I was a Christian or not and I felt it was odd on her part to make that assumption.

    I agree it it has become too commercial but as long as the gifts are about love and giving, I don't think Jesus minds. It is a celebration.

    I have never been away from saying Merry Christmas. I have never been a political correct freak. If someone doesn't like it they can do whatever they want because I am going to do what I want.

    Christians share the same God as the Jews and of course I respect their belief coming from one of the same book I live by but when it comes to Muslims I believe you may get a big surprise. They want to outlaw Christmas, lights, all & destroy.

    You know what? Those who love Jesus could care less about your fact finding. He is savior of the world and we celebrate He was born to die for our sins so we can have life eternal just because we stand on His name & believe in Him! Merry Christma

    I think that is great and not everyone is out to steal what is yours and the joy that goes with it and I would certainly never judge those but expect they get kind treatment in return.

    I agree but it also begs the question, what would make someone, not a Christian, to take offense on this simple greeting? No one is forcing another to go to church or to pray or to bow down... It is just a simple greeting of cheer.

    We only defend because it is our holiday for Christmas is Christ Jesus birthday and the celebration is for Him. We only have problem with those who try to change facts. Anyone else can celebrate Dec any way they want, why would we care?

    Bill, did you miss this whole discussion by jumping in here? The problem was a creation by the atheists and humanist activist. They have intimidated companies such as Target and others to tell their employees to not say merry christmas...

    Man has made "Christianity" a RELIGION! Did Jesus call HIS "Gospel" that? For ONCE, I wish peeps would 'consider Scripture!'

    ALL "RELIGIONS" are from SATAN! There is ONLY ONE TRUE "GOSPEL" and that is "THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST" (Gal1:6-9)!

    Not to argue, but didn't several major department stores actually stop saying Merry Christmas? And schools (to be PC) stopped allowing decorating for fear of alienating some people? Even the card from the WH doesn't say Merry Christmas

    Apparently the OP and others allow themselves to be controlled by popular trends or PC. Thus the popularity of censorship. They fear what they hear because they are so vulnerable to persuasion.

    So true, why is it Christian's are the ones expected to give up their own holiday? Crazy people who believe that will ever happen. So many on the left too, makes you ask yourself if there are no Christian's there anymore.

    That is not what's happening...you need to look at the ACLU and other humanist organizations. They are actively using the courts to remove Christ from the public square. I know of few people Christians and others alike that are offended by the MXAS.

    PC is a derogatory term for people who don't think the world is all about them. Being inclusive is nothing to be ashamed of. You should try it.
