Once Again History - not fucking religion

Once Again History - not fucking religion
http://www.rawstory.com/2016/11/christia...christmas/

Quote:Guess who has been calling Christmas a pagan holiday for the last 500 years? Christians.  

If it feels like the “War on Christmas” is getting really old, it is. Over ten years have passed since Bill O’Reilly first opened December with a segment called, “Christmas Under Siege”—ten long years in which his cadences and refrains and echoing chorus have become as familiar to most Americans as Handel’s Messiah. More familiar, in fact.


A relatively long read but there is a lot of bullshit to wade through with jesus freaks.

weird an eternal and unchanging deity would keep changing his mind about observing holidays
In the 1960s, American parents began looking to mental health professionals for child-rearing advice.  Since then, an exponential per-capita increase in child mental health professionals has matched a dramatic deterioration in child mental health.  No new therapy or drug has stopped this downward trend.

The concept of 'dogma' doesn't include flexibility does it ?
