If You Don’t See Merry Christmas

Sticking it to the ACLU, scrooges and anti-CHRISTmas establishment!

  1. I have been doing that for years, John Gibson’s book, “The War On Christmas” gave me the courage to tell the manager’s of the store why I was leaving. I will go tell the manager or call the corporate office, let them know why.

      Good for you, Suzanne! I do the same thing. We need to live our faith, not hide it. Christianity doesn’t take place within the confines of church walls. It lives right within us and we carry it everywhere and in everything we do. That’s what being Christian means.

      Have a blessed Christmas, Suzanne! 🙂

      • True Conservative says

        Just curious – what do you do at the stores that display menorahs, either with or without Christian symbols? Come back at night to break some crystal? What if they have a Kwanza section in their gift card rack? Are they okay, so long as they say Merry Christmas at the door?

        The reason stores continue to use “Season Greetins” and “Holiday Greetings” from time-to-time, despite at least ten years of wingnut hysteria about a faux “War on Christmas,” is because by being inclusive they make more money than by being preferential to one singular religion, even as great and loving a faith as Christianity. (And by Christian, I include Catholicism and Mormonisn, sorry if that offends you.)

        If your faith is so weak that you or your children look to Walmart to reaffirm its role in your life, then you truly need help … and boycotting a job-creator is not going to solve your issues.

        • No one ever censors speech they agree with.

          Some of us don’t celebrate Christmas, we don’t whine about all the baloney that is out there. But damn, if someone doesn’t say Merry Christmas to the born again, they all want to go on a jihad.

          Irony is lost on them.

          • Conservative American says

            And what is your faith, Lampoon?

            • True Conservative says

              Wow, just when you thought Con Am couldn’t get any creepier.

              • Conservative American says

                Define “marriage” for us, TC.

              • Conservative American says

                It’s very simple, TC. Just start off with, “Marriage is….” and give us your definition of marriage. What exactly seems to be so difficult for you regarding giving us your definition of marriage?

              • True Conservative says

                Asked and answered in the thread where the question was relevant.

                You’re either illiterate or just a liar.

                I’m betting on liar.

              • Conservative American says

                No, you haven’t given us your definition of marriage. If you already have, then why don’t you copy and paste it here including the header with the date and time of your post. What? You can’t do that? You lied when you said that you already gave us your definition of marriage? Very naughty! You shouldn’t try to deceive SA readers like that but you always do, LOL!

                Here, TC, I’ll make it easy for you. “Marriage is EXCLUSIVELY the union of one man and one woman.” There! Now all you have to do is to say that you are in total, complete, 100% agreement with that definition.

                Say it, TC. Say it now.

              • True Conservative says

                “No, you haven’t given us your definition of marriage. If you already have, then why don’t you copy and paste it here including the header with the date and time of your post”

                Because I don’t dance for you, you dance for me.

                Now, do as you’re told: stay on topic, don’t be a troll and post intelligently and I won’t have to spank you anymore.

              • Conservative American says

                ROFL, ROFL, ROFL!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

                You got caught red handed in a flat out lie yet once again, TC. When are you going to learn, LOL!

                The reason you can’t copy and paste your definition of marriage, as posted at SA with the time and date header, is that, exactly as I’ve said, you have NEVER given us your definition of marriage, LOL!

                Come on now, TC. Define “marriage” for us. I know you can do it, sweethheart. Dig deep.

          • Conservative American says

            You don’t deny that you are adamantly anti-Christian, do you, Lampoon?

          • Conservative American says

            Are you an atheist, Lampoon? We know that you are adamantly anti-Christian but are you also an atheist?

            Speak up, Lampoon, I can’t hear you.

        • Conservative American says

          NOTICE: The above poster, “True Conservative”, is a same sex marriage liberal posing as a Conservative and a propagandist for the radical, ultra-left.

          • The above “True Conservative” just accused Christians of Kristallnatch.

            It doesn’t get any dirtier than that.

            Disgusting filth.

            • True Conservative says

              No, I did not.

              This is just the latest of the dirty, despicable lies that you have told in your pathetic search for outrage.

              You are worse than the worst politically correct liberal. So weak are your political debate skills that the only way you have to respond to you ideological superiors is with manufactured indignation. Some day you’ll man up and response with fact and argument, but I don’t expect that day to come anytime soon.

              What I did was ask Con Am how he reacts to menorahs – a question he refuses to answer, a question that was appropriate given his earlier post.

              That disgusting filth you are whining about – that is the stench of your own post.

                Just curious – what do you do at the stores that display menorahs, either with or without Christian symbols? Come back at night to break some crystal?

                :::::::::::::::::::::::::::

                Oh, so your slippery defense is you employed “menorahs” plainly representing Jews and “breaking crystal” representing Kristallnatch, but you didn’t actually SAY the exact word “Kristallnatch” so you want to slop around the blood libel and skate free on your word games?

                You gonna claim it was the “Other Troofer Conservative” again, you troll?

              • True Conservative says

                You silly boy.

                You lied and said I accused Christians of Kristallnatch.

                As my comment makes clear, I did not. What I did do was ask Con Am, who seemingly has a problem with Jews, what he does.

                You’be been off-continent for too long. Your English is slipping.

                Far too often your posts are nothing more than a series of desperate searches for something to declare outrage about.

                You truly are worse than the worst Politically Correct liberal. Less chip on the shoulder and more intellect behind your arguments is what is required,

              • Conservative American says

                You DID accuse Christians of Kristallnacht exactly as wanumba says. Now you’re trying to cover your slip up.

                What I am doing is asking TC, who apparently has a problem with Black people, to define “marriage”. Define marriage for us, TC.

                You claim that you are Conservative so defining marriage for us should be utter simplicity for you.

                Define “marriage”, TC.

              • True Conservative says

                I’m not responsible for your illiteracy, or your prevarications.

                Man up – answer the question: tell us what you think of the Jews.

              • Conservative American says

                You’re responsible for saying that Christians are responsible for Kristallnacht EXACTLY as wanumba said.

                I see Jewish people, or people of the Jewish faith, as brothers and sisters. You see, TC, there’s this thing of which you are entirely ignorant. It’s called “the Judeo-Christian ethic.” Here, let me help you out with some education, of which you are sorely in need.

                “Judeo-Christian is a term used in the United States since the 1940s to refer to standards of ethics said to be held in common by Judaism and Christianity, for example the Ten Commandments. The term is also used in a historical sense to refer to the connections between the precursors of Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism in the Second Temple period.”

                Of course, ethics of any sort are beyond you so I doubt that you will be able to comprehend the above definition.

              • True Conservative says

                You’ve really gone off the deep end.

                Your lies about me are fine, but your explanation concerning Jews is down-right bizarre.

                You like Jews to the extent they form the basis for your faith. What of those who reject your faith and remain simply Judaic, and not Judeo-Christian?

                You have posted a series of comments demonstrating that you only accept Christian (excluding Catholics and Mormon, per you) values within your demand for an authoritarian federal government that dictates moral and social standards and behavior. You explicitly reject the conservative standards of self-determination, religious freedom, small government and local rule.

                We already know your not a true conservative, that you believe in the Truther, Birther and Black Helicopter myths, now I just want to find out if you an anti-semite as well. That is why I asked YOU what YOU do when YOU come across a store that displays a menorah. I want to know if YOU dream of another Kristallnacht.

                BTW: is it really your contention that Jews are responsible for Kristallnacht? I have heard that some ultra-right wingnuts were putting forward that myth – are you one of them? Who was responsible for the events of 9–10 November 1938?

              • Conservative American says

                ROFL!!!! Cut the liberal crap, TC. Define “marriage” for us. All of you bull isn’t going to save you, LOL!

                Now you claim to be a big supporter and defender of the LDS Church and, at the same time, a supporter and defender of homosexual “marriage”. So how do you reconcile that fact that the official positon of the LDS Church is that it opposes homosexual “marriage”?

                “As a church, our doctrinal position is clear: any sexual activity outside of marriage is wrong, and we define marriage as between a man and a woman.”

                “Further, while the Church is strongly on the record as opposing same-sex marriage, it has openly supported other rights for gays and lesbians such as protections in housing or employment.”

                http://newsroom.lds.org/article/church-mormon-responds-to-human-rights-campaign-petition-same-sex-attraction

                “Top leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently released a six-page statement on why the faith is opposed to same-sex marriage.”

                http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700257603/LDS-Church-issues-statement-on-same-sex-marriage.html

                The following interview was conducted in 2006 with Elder Dallin H. Oaks, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church.

                “ELDER OAKS: This is much bigger than just a question of whether or not society should be more tolerant of the homosexual lifestyle. Over past years we have seen unrelenting pressure from advocates of that lifestyle to accept as normal what is not normal, and to characterize those who disagree as narrow-minded, bigoted and unreasonable. Such advocates are quick to demand freedom of speech and thought for themselves, but equally quick to criticize those with a different view and, if possible, to silence them by applying labels like “homophobic.” In at least one country where homosexual activists have won major concessions, we have even seen a church pastor threatened with prison for preaching from the pulpit that homosexual behavior is sinful. Given these trends, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints must take a stand on doctrine and principle. This is more than a social issue — ultimately it may be a test of our most basic religious freedoms to teach what we know our Father in Heaven wants us to teach.”

                Tell it like it is, Elder Oaks!

  2. Conservative American says

    Now TC, who also posts as Lampoon, supports homosexual marriage and is anti-Christian as are all card carrying Communists. That’s the Commie propaganda and TC/Lampoon spews it every chance she gets. Just another run of the mill Commie, LOL! 😉

    • True Conservative says

      You’re an absolute idiot, but a useful idiot … you’re the gift that keeps on giving.

      With each post you prove how the wingnuts are destroying the (R) party. In your mind, anyone who doesn’t live in your world of black helicopters, truther, birther, fluoride in the water conspiracies is a communist.

      Throw in your bizarre sock-puppet fantasies, mixed with your creepy cyber-stalking and you must be the biggest loser.

      • Conservative American says

        Define “marriage” for us, TC. If you are a “true conservative”, as you claim, you should have not the slightest difficulty defining “marriage” for us in one short sentence. Define “marriage” for us, TC.

        • True Conservative says

          I have, repeatedly, in the thread where that question is pertinent. You’re not only creepy, you seemingly are also functionally illiterate.

          That, or you’re just a pathetic liar.

          • Conservative American says

            You have not once defined marriage, TC.

            Define “marriage” for us, TC.

            Marriage is exclusively the union between one man and one woman. You agree with that 100%, right?

          • Conservative American says

            Your definition of marriage is pertinent in every thread in which you post because you post under the user name, “True Conservative” when you are actually an radical, ultra left liberal posing as a Conservative. Every time you post you seek to deceive.

            You also claim that you are a Conservative and that wanumba and I are not Conservatives. If you are, in fact, a Conservative, then it should be the simplest thing in the world for you to define marriage for us in one short sentence.

            Definie “marriage” for us, TC.

            • True Conservative says

              You’re not a conservative. A conservative wouldn’t need to resort to lying about another, especially through such bizarre, creepy cyberstalking.

              By your own admission you desire the imposition of an authoritarian federal government that controls the moral and religious lives of its citizens.

              You seek to impose a religious test for membership in the (R) party, as evidenced by your bizarre cyberstalking.

              The (R) party freed the slaves, defeated the Dixiecrats to bring civil rights to the South and won freedom for the world in the Cold War. You don’t like that history – sorry, it is the Democrats that are the party of the KKK, go join them.

              We will not allow the johnny-come-lately Social(-ist) Conservatives drive us away from the twin pillars of small government and local rule that has served the conservative way of life for so long.

              • Conserative American says

                You’re a radical, ultra left liberal who backs Dianne Feinstein.

                By you own admission you support the homosexual “marriage” agenda of Dianne Feinstein.

                By your own admission you would eliminate religious freedoms by forcibly preventing people of faith from living out that faith in their daily lives.

                Commies like you have been trying to bring down America for over 100 years but you have failed in the past and you will fail again now.

                Your Commie dream to destroy marriage and the American family will fail. Your Commie dream to put an end to religion will fail. Pinkos like you just don’t have the right stuff to take on America.

              • Conserative American says

                Give us your definition of “marriage”, Miss Conservative.

              • True Conservative says

                You’re simply a liar, and a pathetic one at that.

                I have never expressed any of the lies you are telling, but that doesn’t matter to wingnuts like you – which is why true conservatives need to kick your big-government, “more power to the feds” butt to the curb.

                The only one who has advocated restricting religious freedom is you. You want the right to tell a Church what they can or can not do – and you want it to be made part of Federal law.

                Conservatives favor small government and local rule – you do not.

                Tell, us, what do you think of Jews? Why do you keep dodging that question?

              • Conservative American says

                Define “marriage” for us, TC. You claim that you are a “Conservative” so it should be utter simplicity for you to define “marriage” for us.

                All you do is lie, TC. You lie about being “Conservative”. You support the homosexual “marriage” agenda of radical, ultra left liberal U. S. Senator Dianne Feinstein. You oppose the Republican controlled U. S. House of Representatives taking up the legal defense of the “Defense of Marriage Act”.

                No, LOL, YOU are against religious freedom. You want to permit churches to hold their beliefs but you don’t want to let people of faith live their faith in their daily lives. You want to keep religion within the confines of a church building. It is faith manifested in daily life to which you object and that is the essence of religious freedom.

                Conservatives favor living by the rule of law and don’t attempt to claim that things like homosexual “marriage” are a constitutional “right” when The Constitution doesn’t explicity grant such a right and when the SCOTUS has not ruled that it is a “right” under The Constituion. You, however, claim that homosexual “marriage” is a constitutional right. That makes you anti-Conservative.

                TC wrote: “Tell, us, what do you think of Jews?”

                I think that Jewish people, or people of the Jewish faith, are my brothers and sisters. I’m sure that you have never heard of “the Judeo-Christian ethic”. Here, I’ll educate you, as you are sorely in need of education.

                “Judeo-Christian is a term used in the United States since the 1940s to refer to standards of ethics said to be held in common by Judaism and Christianity, for example the Ten Commandments. The term is also used in a historical sense to refer to the connections between the precursors of Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism in the Second Temple period.”

                What do YOU think of Jewish people? Would you curtail their religious freedoms as well?

                While you’re at it, define “marriage” for us, TC.

              • True Conservative says

                Isn’t that sweet – you like Jews to the extent they helped form an aspect of your faith, but you repeatedly refuse to honor and recognize their right to practice their faith – and to lives their lives – while not believing in your faith.

                Sure, you like Judeo-Christian, but you just can’t stand the idea of Judaic lifestyle.

                Let’s run the scorecard: you expressed contempt for Ronald Reagan, you believe Bush was behind 9/11, that Clinton assassinated his political enemies, that Obama was born in Kenya and now, that Jews are responsible for Kristallnacht? I have heard that some ultra-right wingnuts were putting forward that myth – are you one of them? Who was responsible for the events of 9–10 November 1938?

                Those are all real things you have posted here. I predict you will reply with your usual set of lies. Care to prove me wrong?

              • Conservative American says

                ROFL, ROFL, ROFL, ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

                Ooooooh! How VERY rich, LOL!

                Let’s run the scorecard:

                You say that you are “conservative” but you support the policies and positions of radical, ultra left “progressive” Democrats like U. S. “progressive” Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California, LOL!

                Feinstein introduced the “Respect for Marriage Act” which would repeal the “Defense of Marriage Act”. The vote out of committee was a straight, party line vote with ALL Republicans voting against the measure. You support homosexual “marriage”, just like Dianne Feinstein, but claim to be a “conservative”, LOL! You’re a radical, ultra left Pinko who opposes not only the positions of Conservatives but even the positions of Senate Republicans!

                You claim to be “conservative” but you support homosexual “marriage” while the Republican controlled U. S. House of Representatives has taken up the legal defense of the “Defense of Marriage Act”. You aren’t even Republican, let alone Conservative. You support the positions of Obama Democrats, LOL!

                To top it all off, you go around talking about “Mormon bashing” but you conveniently fail to mention that the LDS Church opposes homosexual “marriage” and supports traditional marriage. How is it that you support homosexual “marriage” but claim to support the LDS Church which strongly opposes homosexual “marriage”? Wouldn’t that make the LDS Church “bigoted” for seeking to deny homosexuals the “right” to marry? Wouldn’t that be more of that awful “bigoted” religion again?

                What a tangled web TC weaves when first she practices to deceive, LOL!

                Have a nice day, TC!

              • True Conservative says

                For all your creepy cyberstalking demanding others answer you off-topic questions, your cowardice in refusing to answer mine, on-topic for this thread, is very telling of how deeply ingrained hypocrisy is into your psyche.

  3. Merry Christmas to all of the Christians who care, and God, please help the rest understand there is a difference between our holiday and theirs, including different days of the year. Many seem to be confused.

    • Heh.
      Iris … Let’s put this in perspective… we’re in a Muslim country and there is a big, honkin’ Christmas tree in the middle of the shopping center here. The Lebanese-owned mega store downtown has an entire FLOOR devoted to Christmas presents and decorations .

      We’ve gotten more CHARMING CHristmas greetings from Hindus and Muslims than from confused Americans over the past twenty years – and so far they put up better CHristmas trees in their houses than we put in ours.

      This is just ridiculous in the USA. It’s such a pleasant holiday, everybody likes it… except perpetually outraged athiests who are on a crusade to shut it down.

      • True Conservative says

        None of what you wrote about America is remotely true. You’ve been away for too long, if you ever lived here at all.

        Christmas greetings are exchanged every day this season. People have lovely trees. Nothing has happened to diminish Christmas in any way.

        The whine of the moment is that some stores use the term “Happy Holidays” so as to appeal to the largest consumer base, and that somehow is an affront to *some* Christians who think they have the right to tell private companies that they must affront all other religions.

        It’s the very epitome of un-American behavior – injecting a religious test on stores before shopping there. Would you support boycotts of Jewish stores this time of year? Muslim ones?

        At the end of the day, you’re just looking for another reason to feign outrage, and it’s getting darn tiresome.

        • I react to what YOU project. And you project a lot of hate, bigotry and arrogance.

          If you hadn’t been so insulting, you might have heard what I think of the video, but why get involved in your nasty bash-fest?

          • True Conservative says

            Again with the insults. I responded to your outrageous lie that Christmas is suffering in America and you – in your desperate, lame and tired manner – comeback with a litany of non-germane name calling.

            • From you, someone who was so quick to invoke Kristallnatch – an outrageous insinuation for something that didn’t deserve that.

              • True Conservative says

                Wow – did you really just retreat to the third-grade defense of “he hit me first?”

                Conservatives believe in personal accountability: your actions are examined without regard to mine, though your hypocrisy is well noted.

        • Conservative American says

          TC wrote: “…Christians who think they have the right to tell private companies that they must affront all other religions.”

          Oh, you mean like when homosexual activists harass retail chains like Target, telling them that they must affront Christians by supporting the homosexual activist agenda.

          • True Conservative says

            Yes, that is exactly correct. You are no better than they are.
