'Reduced' or 'promoted'.

Therein lies your solution.

You Murikans get hung up on this shit because you have a constitution that creates barriers.

For most other countries, Christmas is already a day of drunken debauchery.

This I think, is Muffsy's point.

N'est–ce pas?

Christmas has always been a day of drunken debauchery for my family. That aside, your saying that muffy's worried that Christmas will be reduced to a drunken frat party?! I doubt it -- the marketing is too strong. Look I don't care how people celebrate it...if its by getting shit-faced drunk, baking a cake for baby jeebus or going into debt buying gifts or spending an entire day in church pleading for salvation.

But don't tell me I have to celebrate it the way you do or the way muffy does or get all bent and say merry Christmas like youre making a point if I say happy holidays. If I want to call it a holiday tree that's what I want to call it. Don't tell me that I have to just suck it up and accept it if my state wants to put a nativity on state property just because a few loud-mouths believe their personal rights supersedes the constitution. Don't sit there and claim and whine that your rights to worship are being affected because we do have a separation between church and state or cry that Christians are in anyway being discriminated against.

Because that's simply not he case they get more deference than any other religion in this country.

But ok. And FTR I don't mean "you" in the sense of "you" I really am speaking generically.

Quote:Last I checked we are a country of different cultures which should be
celebrated. Christianity is not a culture. It is a religious belief.
Irsh Americans, Chinese Americans, Africans Americans are all free to
celebrate their culture.

Christian white American seems to be distinct American culture IMO.

Quote:Don't be an ass. Those other celebrations are not state-supported.

Sure they are.
They use public spaces to do it (ie: roads).
One of the arguments against public notoriety scenes is that they use public space that other people then can't use.

Quote:And what do you mean "out-dated constitution"

I mean that it is out-dated...
duh..

Quote:That's because in a republic we are ruled by law and not by a mob, or majority.

Law that is decided by the public.
ie: Those states that passed making weed legal, that was voted on by the public, the public decided that it wanted it to be legal and hence it's legal.

The law for the most part reflects public opinion because people have a little thing called a vote.

Quote:Does anyone else think it's kinda interesting that St Patrick's Day has
been grouped (by Hedgehog and Muffs) with e.g. CNY as 'cultural' and not
'religious'?

Honestly, I don't know a damn thing about either holidays.

But if it is religious then:
Drinking Beverage

Quote:St Patrick's day has been reduced to a day of drunken debauchery. Any
religious meaning in this country has long been lost and replaced with
four-leafed clovers, pots of gold and leprechauns. Today, in the USA
it's a cultural day to celebrate being Irish. Columbus day used to be a
day to celebrate being Italian. Until he was vilified for doing pretty
much far less damage than other explorers did.

And Christmas is becoming less and less about Jebus and more about family and friends.

Quote:When the religious begin to erect religious symbols on government
property during St. Patrick's Day. Then I'll probably take issue with
that too.

So it is a atheist thing?
Would you complain about a giant A being erected (tehe)? no...

Quote:This I think, is Muffsy's point.

Well it wasn't originally but I was losing and it seems like a winning argument so it is now.

Quote:But don't tell me I have to celebrate it the way you do or the way muffy does

Nobody is saying that? where did that come from lol?



I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

I still say she isn't attractive enough for worship Mr. Cantor.



Well, I've done my job.

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

She's got Mohammed beat. Tongue

Besides, ain't about being attractive. It's about her being my sweet everything. That, and me being broke in the head. Thumbsup

... I still fail to see why the attraction ...




Besides, nobody is allowed to depict Moohammed, so how do you know?

FT, trying to understand John is like... Consider

*10minutes later* Consider

Nah I got nothing.
There is literally nothing like trying to understand John.
Pro tip: Don't try.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.
