Well, I guess that makes me an asshole, because Christmas offends me. Not the religious part, because that would make me even more of an asshole than I am. I get offended by Christmas whenever I hear the music or see the decorations in stores, because Christianity has allowed the day that supposedly commemorates the day of their god's birth to become a celebration of the wonderful system of economy known as capitalism. So no longer is it Christmas, it's more like Capitalistmas, so **** you, I'm observing Saturnalia.

And also, the Christmas tree originated in Germany as a Pagan tradition. Also, Santa Claus came from the Netherlands, and the image we have of him today is purely for money. Boom. Red thumbs ahoy.

I am not a religious man, but I do not condemn religion. I accept it, even when I was a Christin youth. But I still celebrate x-mas because I believe it is a progressive social practice that is important. This belief includes any and all other holidays that bring people together.

correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the tree a symbol for an old German religion?

Christmas trees have their origin in Germany and other Norse countries, where they actually sacrificed people by hanging them by the branches. They also made a wooden phallus-shaped figure which they dripped goat-blood on.

I am not even joking.

...A Christmas tree isn't a religious symbol... It is a tradition traced back to Victorian England....

So if we should be tolerant to others beliefs shouldn't we allow them to use 'symbols' if they wish? We're not allowed to tell Islamics not to wear burqa's because we have to 'respect their beliefs' and yet they are allowed to tell us to take down Christmas trees?
Yes I know its a pagen holiday but its still hypocrisy at its finest.

1. Not only Christians celebrate Christmas
2. Christmas isn't even a Christian holiday
User avatar #161 to #158 - bananarchy (12/10/2012) [-]
No it's not, it was celebrated by pagans years before the supposed birth of Christ and was merely adopted by Christians

Beliver or not, Xmas is Xmas... It's not about the faith, but about the message of peace and joy...Like the "pagan's" celebrations that exisisted before Xmas...

Wait is the tree in his house? If it's in his house I don't care if he has mutilated doll heads hanging from it, it's his choice. Even if its outside on his property, everyone has a right to express their religion. I'm not religious but if I want a god damn nativity scene I'll put up a god damn nativity scene. If the tree was on the front lawn and had a sign around it that was like "CONVERT OR YOUR FIRST BORN SHALL BE BURNED ON YOUR OWN MENORAH" then I see the issue, but something as simple as a tree is no ones god damn business.

Please please please don't think that all atheists are like yon derpette. I'm fine with your religion, just don't try to convert me. Every atheist I know of feels the same way.
I want to make this known.

I would like to make a clarification. An atheist is one who does no believe in any religion. An Antitheist is one who hates all religions and sees them as a cancer on society. However an Antitheist will call themselves an atheist simply because they see no difference. There are many types of atheist in the world. Gnostic, agnostic, implicit, explicit, broad, unfriendly, indifferent, etc. Each type has its own little quirks.
