Merry Christmas, Christians !

by Francois Tremblay

Let’s set the record straight. Christmas is NOT a Christian holiday. Christmas has NEVER been a Christian holiday. In fact, Christians have traditionally been AGAINST Christmas. It’s only in recent decades that Christian fundamentalists have tried to claim Christmas in the name of their childish religion. Anyone who knows the history of Christmas would laugh at the suggestion that it has anything to do with Jesus or Christianity. It existed far before Christianity and will continue to exist long after it.

For all of you Christians who decorate trees, remember that you’re sinning against God :

Jeremiah 10:3-4
For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter.

Jeremiah 3:13
Only acknowledge your guilt? you have rebelled against the LORD your God, you have scattered your favors to foreign gods under every spreading tree, and have not obeyed me,’ ” declares the LORD.

Also remember that historically in the United States, the Christian version of Christmas was about dressing up as a woman or a bishop, getting into a drunken revelry, and breaking in rich people’s homes. That was the “meaning of Christmas” for the Pilgrims. The Christmas we know today is Pagan in origin, every single element of it is Pagan, and the very fact that we have such a Christmas is anti-Christian.

So, dear Christians, I wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS ! It’s our holiday, but you’re welcome to it.
