    What are you going to do, poke him in the eye if he does? :)

    Who said you have to celebrate it at all? The war is still fake, contrived from whole cloth to make the more nutty segment of rightwing Christiandom feel self-righteous about.

    Not fake at all, as the years go by we see more law suits directed at religious figures being displayed. Kind of like they are afraid of something.

    Lawsuits about religious figures being displayed is not evidence of a war on Christmas. A war on Christmas would be a concerted effort to end Christmas and not let people celebrate it.

    Again, fake war created by rightwing blowhards.

    To that we 100% disagree. Many of us see it as an effort to take Christ out of Christmas. You'll never convince me otherwise because these concerted efforts have stepped up incrementally every year. Thank god that hasn't come to the Irish Riviera yet.

    No one is trying to make you take Christ out of your Christmas. If others want to celebrate it for other various reason, say, just getting together with family, who are you to say otherwise? If a company wants to make their employees say Happy Holidays because they have a diverse customer base, say in places like NYC where many are not Christian, it's still not taking Christ out of your Christmas.

    Good one, too bad that is not what I said. Call that a strawman.

    So how exactly are you prevented from celebrating Christmas?

    Haven't you been insisting that there is a war on Christmas? I just want to know how this war has prevented you from celebrating this holiday?

    That is not what's being discussed , but your desire shift the narrative. We're facing a narrative at putting the Christians in the closet and that's what this is about.

    My only desire is for you to show how you or any other Christian or anyone else who 'celebrates' Christmas is being prevented from doing so? How are you being put in the closet?
