    Many of the miracles of Christ are about as believable as Santa Claus flying through the sky on a sled with Rudolph the Red Nose Rain Deer leading the way. This is not to say that the spirit of Christ and Santa Claus are very real to a great number of people all around the world. Today in the United States the Politically Correct Police have removed the spirit of the religious holidays replacing it with the commercial exploitation removing the meaning of Christmas even further. Too many children are raised believing Christmas is about receiving presents. Many of the ones who have too much receive more while people with so little get very little to nothing for Christmas.

    The Muslims and Jewish people see Christ as a Prophet who?s teaching live on today. Yet in much of the United States Christ?s image can?t be displayed on public grounds during the holiday season. The commercialization of Christmas has drowned out the message of Christ so many people do not know the true meaning of Christmas. If a Prophet like Christ were to walk through America today he would be sicken by what he would see during the Holiday Season. Too much in so few hand while so many are going without would be the message he would bring back to his father. What would most upset Christ would be the money raise in his name and the War fought in the name of God.

    Yes the American people will recite that ?It is better to give than receive? without understanding the true and real meaning of Christmas. The message of Christ has been lost over time in our evolving society. Our founding father wanted a separation of Church and State because of the religious war fought in God name all around the world. They recognized the dangers of religious institutions controlling the armies of nations. The Prophets of yesterday had limited information but they were very wise and knowledgeable were today people have a lot of information but they are not very wise to the truth. The message of tolerance of others who are different, helping those who are less fortunate than you and counting your blessings is what Christmas is all about.

    First you call the miracles of Christ unbelievable, then you lecture America on losing "the message of Christ?" Do you even understand what the message of Christ was?
