What happened to the Christmas spirit?[/bM
Christmas ended with the the 1960's. The vietnam war ( which i supported ) and the watergate debacle and the death of edgar j. hoover ( and the loss of supremacy in the medical-psychiatry community from protestant to jewish secular values ) changed america ( and the west ) to ...[text shortened]... who love the truth ( the few who read it before it dies ).
Banned? Was this post once deleted (when someone called “Very Rusty” posted it)? Was someone called “Very Rusty” banned for nothing more
than this post as it reads here?
The post does seem—possibly! It’s a bit oblique—to imply that there is some “secular Jewish” (whatever exactly that means) conspiracy to undo Christmas…for whom? Does the author mean to imply that everybody else ought to “disappear” during this Christian holiday? Should religious Jews take their menorahs out of the windows? What about Muslims when Ramadan happens to fall at this time of year? What about those who celebrate other things during this season (i.e., the winter solstice)?
Again, this post is so oblique that I am not sure it is trying to say any of that. (I'm just trying to figure out why anyone would think it's worth a ban...)
I’m not a Christian. But I just wished FreakyKBH a happy and healthful Christmas
, knowing that he celebrates it as a religious holiday. Why should I object to his religious holiday (or not wish him well in its celebration)?
Other Christians object to Christmas as a religious holiday. I respect their position as well. So, on theological grounds, I doubt that such Christians would want to wish those, such as Freaky, a merry “Christmas”—but that does not mean that they wish him ill either.
But, with all that said, I see nothing about this particular post that merits a ban.
Let me take this opportunity to wish for all who celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday a joyful, healthful and richly meaningful holy-day. And for those who celebrate other things—a different holiday, or just life itself—wishes for joy and health and well-being. L’chaim v’ shalom!
