The Truth about Christmas Revisited

This morning in formation I was told to tell my children the real story behind Christmas. "And it's not Santa." I was then told it was about our lord Jesus, his personal savior. Well first off, fuck you dude. OK now we can have a rational talk. I have actually talked to my children about the truth behind this holiday season. I have also shared these tales with anyone who cared to read. Below is a list of links for those of you that weren't reading along a few years ago. And for the record, I am not trying to dissuade anyone from their faith (if the truth can do that you've got problems you shouldn't blame on me anyway). If your church leaders tell you to celebrate jesus' birthday (the Bible wouldn't -as he was Jewish, he would have seen it as a sin to celebrate it himself) or family tradition forces you to participate, all I really ask is for you to stop using your positions of authority to push it on people who may not agree. Cause if they did they wouldn't need your two cents anyway. Asshole, sorry had to get one more in.
