ISLAM is not a religion.....


"Merry Christmas" is a marketing tool. Go turn on a tv for an hour. Everything from cars to beer to condoms has a "Merry Christmas" ad.

"Merry Christmas" in the United States has always been about commercial enterprise. It was never about religious belief.

Christmas was not widely celebrated in the United States. It became a big thing when retailers started promoting it.

The true meaning of Christmas in the US has always been the dollar bill.

Get over it. Get real. Think before you leap.
 

Actually, the problem ARE people just like you, who stubbornly will not let go of the "Thread" of American life as it was before the first bombing done to the Towers and the subsequent airlines crashing into them that announced this (get ready for it) HOLY WAR.

Unfortunately, we ARE in a Holy War (in the 21 century) and we will continue to lose this war as it intensifies (and it will) until this ridiculous form of political correctness, crammed down our collective throats by the Government, outside/foreign entities, illegal aliens, the ACLU, and anyone who cannot LEGALLY advance thru the "systems" that are in place, are removed from our mindset (and laws) and we begin to think, see, and act for ourselves. Advance without the fear that our own government (that is suppose to be "Of the People, By the People, and For the People") would ignore existing laws that would harm the People of this nation (in essence hurting itself, as the Gov. is "Of the People") in order to help and defend the Illegal activities and actions of outside/foreign entities and illegal aliens.

Anyone want to bet as to whether this Man/Woman/Boy/Girl (Cocked and Locked) is in reality a Socialist, Progressive, Liberal, Muslim Plant; placed in this site to cause confusion, unrest, mayhem, anger, and distrust towards each other for the sole purpose of dividing us? Remember, United we stand, Divided we fall.

Great way to describe whatever "it" is...:sarcastic:

Opinions from the non believers always come across as mindless angry rants. Trying to sell your agenda like they sell cars huh? George Soros would love you under his tree..:sarcastic:

And as expected, the inevitable paranoid delusion rears it's ugly head.
 
Maybe in your home when you were growing up nogods, that is if you ever did grow up toys was your only goal but not in mine. Maybe GOD and JESUS was not a part of your Christmas but Christmas in our home while I was growing up was all about GOD and the birth of GOD's child, the baby JESUS. The most important decoration that was place on our property was the mainger and all the assorted pieces of history that went with it. Yea we all as children looked forward to Christmas morning and what would be under the Christmas tree but their was not much because it was not about the gifts as much as the celebration of the birth of JESUS. I think each of us kids might get a toy or two an the rest would be clothes and shoes. Things we would need to make it through the years. My children were raise in a similar manor. They got a few toys each and the necessities of clothes and shoes and maybe a new coat. But first and foremost from Childhood GOD AND JESUS was Christmas for my children also. All my children are now grown and have Children of their own and even those children are having Children and in each home at Christmas GOD and JESUS come first. There are toys but there are also the necessities under their Trees also. My Family will for ever remember the reason for this season and it will never be the malls and walmarts. The reason for this season is the birth of our Lord JESUS CHRIST. I am sorry if I have gotten off the topic slightly but the subject is about religion. To add this one note, I did not buy one gift for any of my family this year. We will all gather as we do every year for a feast and celebrate the Birth of JESUS. The only few gifts that got bought were bought for the small children by the parents and believe me no store got rich off my family. If this is not a suitable post it can be removed.
 
Sorry, minor correction:
...the birth of your Lord JESUS CHRIST.

Or maybe the birth of "a" lord jesus christ.... one of many dietys observed for their role in religious practices the world over, who just happened to be born near the winter solstice and had that birthday associated with the biggest marketing campaign history has ever known due to the rapidly expanding population of the new capitalist economy of the United States of Christendom.

Yes "we" understand there is always going to be a small number of inwardly-focused (fundamentalist) (radical) religious (zealots) (crackpots) (insert preferred pejorative term of stereotype here) who for one reason another, be it terrorism, an overwhelming preoccupation with their salvation, or anything in between, will be unable to understand anything else, or see it in the true perspective it deserves.

Enjoy. :pleasantry:
 
One huge point some of you are overlooking here.... The topic is Muslims! Fact they want all non Muslims dead or paying the non Muslims tax, they do not give a damn what religion you are or are not, yes all of them it's in the Koran....
 
I have not forgot the subject Sheldon. Believe me I live everyday listening to the threats our Country and many other Countries face from Muslim Terrorists and I know that right now there is a war going on in many fronts to protect our freedom. You are totally correct in the fact that the Muslims want all infidels either dead or enslaved. That is what the Kuran(Quran) teaches and that is what all of Islam wants to take place. The Terrorists will do what ever it takes to succeed including killing their own people. As far as I'm concerned I'm for pulling all of our troops out of all the Muslim nations and nuking them. You can bet if they get their hands on a Nuke they will use it on us.

In reality, Christ did not "happen" to be born near the winter solstice (or maybe he was-that would be perfect in the grand scheme). We celebrate his birthday on what used to be a pagen holiday. When Rome officially became a "Christian state" and wanted to celebrate Christs birth, there existed a holiday already "a pagen Holiday". That day was selected as it would cause the least amout of uproar, and the people would be able to celibrate as they did every year before.
Why wouldn't it be the biggest marketing campaign? It is the Best selling book in the history of Mankind that is read and BELIEVED by the most powerful nation on this planet that also happens to be the most free, allowing ANYONE who is a legal resident (regardless of their religious beliefs) to succeed and rise above the dirt. Everthing we do is Vanity and Vexation (meaning everything we do is for naught, as no-one gets out of here alive physically), so you might as well as enjoy the ride, be true to yourself, and your country.

Definetely NOT a small number of inwardly-focused (fundamentalist) (radical) religious (zealots) (crackpots) (MUSLIM EXTREMISTS) that want nothing more than to exterminate all non-muslims. As soon as we (the USA) are able to rid ourselves of all of the politically correct" thinking/mindset, we will squash this muslim "Holy War". Christianity is based on a loving GODs SON, "CHRIST" (who sits at the right hand of GOD); Islam is bases on a man and his teachings, who accended to heaven to his GOD/MASTER. Where does he sit?
 
So consider yourself deluded by paranoia. :pleasantry:

A little paranoia in the right doses can be a good thing helping to keep you alive. However a total lack of on the other could be a death sentence for you and your loved ones.... blinders or 20/20 tunnel vision is a very bad thing....
 
Not until we see the source for the same quote against Muslims. :biggrin:

I am entitled to my opinion, right? :no:

And I'm entitled to my opinion. You are by far the most pathetic liberal loser I've ever read posts from... You and all the rest of the liberals are the true threat to America. You are like a sickness that will require strong meds to rid this country of...

I responded to Sheldon's interesting thread; so did others, who also remained on thread.

Then it was ambushed and a lot of (un)suppressed rage came out. Let's clear this up!

I am no atheist, nor am I a blind apologist for Christianity or Judaism or any other religion. If you look, though, to my original post here, Post # 41, you will see my point. Critics are blasting away on this thread about ancient origins and bad parts of Christianity, etc.

However, for simplification, focus only on today: the Spanish Inquisition is not a threat to today's Spaniard--or any airline passengers, for that matter. Radical Fundamentalist Islam--regardless of its (horrendously bloody) origins and history--IS, TODAY, THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THREAT TO THE PEACEFUL ENJOYMENT OF LIVING FOR ALL OF THE PEOPLES OF THIS EARTH!

Conflict with Islam is the root cause of most of the really important small and large armed conflicts extant today; conflict with Islam is the reason why your air travel sucks (see Post #41).

I will quote myself here:"Why do they get away with rioting for their cause in Spain, Netherlands, Britain, Denmark? Why don't they riot here in the USA? I believe it is not primarily because of our well-equipped police departments, or the numerical deficiency of radical Muslims in America. I believe, fundamentally, that it is because we are the last nation of FREE peoples ARMED TO THE TEETH, and, should it ever come down to it, we will not submit, and we will not go quietly into the night.

Done, and done!
 
And we all know what opinions are like - everybody has one. Some are so adamantly emebedded in theirs, they are fully characterized by it. :lol:

Coming from you, I consider that a true compliment...:sarcastic:

As my signature indicates, I am opinionated and will never refute that fact.

The same applies to your opinions. You spelled embedded incorrectly by the way.:rolleyes:
