Wouldn't you have to understand what we're talking about first?

When that happens give me a ring.

You know, as a Christian, I have no problem with the whole "holiday" thing. There are a bunch of holidays this time of year, Christmas is one of them, but it's not the only one. Honestly, if I were Jewish and I got something from the President of my country that just said Christmas, I'd feel left out. This shouldn't be an issue and it really urinates me off that other Christians are so pissed about it.

It's Christians that turned it into a whole materialistic holiday anyway.

Wow, that was a leap in logic.

But then again, like you said this is FYM.

I haven't heard one person, not one, make such a statement.

How is it that some people still don't get the concept that there are other religious holidays in December?

I'm seriously baffled.

But after see the many questions being ignored in this thread, I'm not so baffled for it really comes down to, "what's good for me will be good for everyone else."

Yeah this made no sense.

I do not think it is anti-semetic if the card said Merry Christmas, but I do think it would be irrational and illogical.

Then again - it is George W. Bush, so I would not put it past him...

Yeah, I thought of that a bit later, but since the person I was making the comment to and I had settled the issue (we're going to dance naked around the festivus pole chanting whatever the hell we feel like chanting ) I decided not to post it.

Plus, I'm lazy and didn't feel like checking the dates.

they call it the Red Crystal

and I am sure some of my "Christian" brothers and sisters will see the "new age" connection

new age = satanic beliefs
