LOL holy shit I am arguing with PT what the **** happened!?
I just don't understand how it hurts anyone to say Merry Christmas. No one says they have to take the 2 words literally, it's just a friendly thing to say. It's not like they are trying to push their religion on you, there just being friendly. And if someone has a manger in front of their house, what's wrong with that? They believe Christ was born on December 25, why aren't they allowed to believe that if they choose? Now, if they are going around putting mangers in front of OTHER people's houses then yeah that is not right hahaa. But saying Merry Christmas doesn't automatically mean people assume everyone is Christian. This country was founded by Christians so the phrase goes way back. It wasn't until the last 100 years that this country has become such a huge melting pot that everyone has to complain that they are not being included in something. That is this countries downfall...people complain about silly things too much and we try too hard to please every single person in this country and not to offend anyone. That is what makes this country look like a bunch of pussies. People are afraid to racially profile an Arabic man at the airport, so instead they let him go through to show they are not racist and do a full body cavity search on the 90 year old lady next in line. I know this sounds a little off the topic but it's not. There is no reason IMO to get offended by someone saying Merry Christmas, or Happy Hannukah, or anything like that. There is no malevolent meaning behind any of those greetings, they are just friendly greetings. Some people in this country are just getting too soft. And that is going to be our downfall, actually it's prolly too late it already has become our downfall.
Our enemies know all of this. That is why we saw those Arabic men in that Minneapolis airport staging their own arrest by praying and chanting and looking like terrorists, but when they got arrested they had no evidence of terrorism on them. So now they are trying to sue the airport for racially profiling and discrimination. They are doing this on purpose because they know that if they do it will make it easier for the real terrorists to get away with it again. After 9/11 this country was almost completely racist. Everyone bashed Arabic people in this country even though they had nothing to do with the tragedy. So after a couple months of bashing, Arab-Americans started to complain, so now look where that lead us. Now we do NOT racially profile the arabs and it will bite us in the ass AGAIN. Troy Smith couldn't take his Heisman on the plane on his way home. Why? Because it could possibly be a bomb or somehting. Is there one person in this entire country that can honestly think that Troy Smith was gonna blow up the plane with his trophy? No, I guarantee there is not one single person. But, since racially profiling is bad, and we want to do the 'right thing', Troy had to make arrangements to get his Heisman home using other means.
Complaining about people using a friendly greeting like Merry Christmas is a slippery slope. It is all connected and just like our censorship laws, our easily offended public is making this country look like a bunch of weak pussies and easy targets for our enemies. They see us having a fit about silly things like this and they love it.
