Whom will FOX blame this year, the old guy in the black panther uniform, Sandra Fluke, Obama, hmmmmm. Inquiring minds would like to know who would launch this fake war first.

War on Christmas? Lol. No such thing. But you gotta admit Sandra Fluke is one goofy broad.

Heh, one of my sisters-in-law already posted that old Ben Stein rant about the WH "Holiday Tree" on her FB page. At least she was gracious and backed off when I posted the Snopes thisiscrap link.

I just say Merry Christmas to everyone. I don't care if they're insulted or not. If they are I just assume they're brainwashed democrats.

A tiny evil little part of me does hope that you say it to a jihadist after he just had a big fight with his wife(wives).

Um, how 'bout Susan Rice!

Well, hopefully you don't get insulted if they say Happy Hanukkah backatcha. ;o)

As a person who is pretty left of center and an atheist, I don't care if you celebrate Christmas at all. I've even been known to spend time with family and bring some food to dinner.

I know what Christmas really is, but telling other people what it really is just makes them angry and defensive, so there's no point in doing it.

It's a Christian-hijacked Winter Solstice feast. It would be wrong to observe that, since that is also religious. I like to just think of it as Sir Isaac Newton's birthday. A symbol of rational thought overtaking age-old superstition.

I don't think that organized, militant Christianity is very large at all. People will tell you they go to church and are Christians even when they never go to church and probably aren't practicing Christians, because they will tell a pollster what they think they should say, not what they actually think. It's a pretty well documented phenomenon. If half the town says they go to church and you actually check, it's usually more like one fourth.

I'd compare living in America today with people of Rome who really didn't believe in the Roman deities, but most of them said they did to grease the wheels in their interaction with other people in society.

I just try to avoid talking about religion unless someone actually asks me for my opinion. Trying to talk over someone who disagrees with you is usually pointless, and you usually leave with nothing but frustration and someone that is angry with you. It's a much better use of time to talk to someone who asked, because they're less likely to bite your head off for giving them an answer.

Nope! I would just smile and say, "Thank you and the same to you!" Sorry to burst your bubble....

There is a joke there about republicans and their war on Christmas fantasy but its sexist... ;-)

I just watched part of O'Rielly and his 'Spin Zone'. They're cranking it up over there. Must really work on the lemmings. I think they love to hate, especially now that it's Christmas.

"How The Republicans Stole Christmas"?

Sounds like O'Reilly's heart shrunk three sizes last night.

Ice King says:
So would I. That's how I'd respond to any kind of religious greeting. I don't care who the deity being represented is, if a person is offering me a blessing/good luck/etc. in the name of their god even if it's not the one I believe in I'm grateful and thank them for the consideration.

That's what I don't get about the militant atheists who get offended when someone says "God bless you" or something. Even if you don't believe in God, the message is still positive and is wishing you well. Just smile and thank the person then move on. Making a scene about it only makes you look like a jerk.

I understand wanting to keep religious rules out of our laws, but simple greetings and celebrations being held in public buildings don't bother me one bit.

May Kolob bless you, Ice King!

Hie Ye To Kolob, Brother!

Joseph Smith died for your sins!

No need to be redundant.

Who do you blame for not knowing the difference between "it's" and "its"? FoxNews?

Christmas is mostly for the kids. They love to decorate the tree, look at the Christmas lights in the neighborhood, watch the seasonal shows on TV, sing the carols etc. I love sharing in their real enthusiasm for these things. Media honks who babble about a 'war on Christmas' are just trying to keep that always angry segment of the population fired up by feeding their insatiable need to be outraged about something.

Hey Bill O'Reilly, have a nice Christmas. Bill O'Reilly, "DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!"

Yes, that is exactly how I feel about the whole thing.

This stuff isn't as easy as it looks. Fox had to decide whether to call it the WAR on Christmas or Christmasgate.

A lot of hard thought and man hours went into this decision.
