|The Christian Saviour Is Born|
Like it or not, it's Christmas time. This is the time of year we Christians celebrate the birth of our Saviour. We call it Christmas, because Christ is the center, the focal point if you will, of the season. To us Christians, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the Messiah, and He came to take away the sins of the world. To Christians, Christ is everything, and our salvation.
Christians have every right to speak of their religion in public, and in public places. It doesn't seem to deter Muslims from speaking of their faith, simply because it would offend Christians or Atheists, so why are Christians being singled out as the only offensive faith? It couldn't be the fact that it is the Christians that have it right, or could it?
Here it is plain and simple, if you are and Atheist, Muslim, Hindu or even a Jew. We Christians know that you don't believe in Christ, but we do, and we have every right to do so. So everyone else needs to back off, and let the Christians celebrate the birth of our Saviour. If you do not wish to celebrate this Christian Holiday, then don't! When the 25th of December comes around, if you are say an Atheist, then tell your boss, you don't want the day off, and if you work, then you don't want any holiday pay for that day, as you do not believe in celebrating a day that recognizes a someone you don't believe in. A better gesture would be to offer to work for a Christian on Christmas so that he might celebrate with his Christian family. I saw an Atheist billboard that said "There is no god, no devil, so why not just be good for goodness sake." So, why not work for a Christian this Christmas, and give him the time and a half, for goodness sake? Maybe if all the Atheists and Muslims and Jews worked for a Christian on Christmas, then Christians may in turn work for a Muslim on Ramadan, or a Jew on a Jewish Holiday, and an Atheist on say, oh I don't know, April 1st maybe. What a wonderful and peaceful way to get along...
Not happening right? I know that, it was just a suggestion.
We could carry this thing even farther. Say for instance, during those Christmas sales, like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Atheists and all other non Christians could shop those sale days and tell the store clerks, "I don't believe in Christmas, so I insist on paying the full price and not the sale price. Wouldn't that be wonderful for the retail businesses? I think it would be.
So hey, if Christmas isn't your Holiday, don't join in the celebration, trust me, not one Christian will miss your presence. Basically just shut up, and leave the Christians alone to to exercise their right to free speech, freedom of religion and freedom to assemble, just like you do.
