    I posted a request on another board that is mostly populated by Liberals and Left-Wingers. They claim to be compassionate. I requested that board members discontinue the use of the lower case "x" in front of -ian or -mas when referring to Christians or Christmas. What resulted is me getting slammed by several other members of the board! I wonder which side they would support if I used the phrase "rag-head" and was asked not to.

    Actually, it is not. Xmas is tolerated as slang. The difference being the use of the capital letter. However, "xian" is not normally accepted for Christian. The point I am trying to make is that since it is a Christian issue, I got no sensitivity from these people who would be the first ones to decry any terminology used that was offensive to the pet minority groups of the left.

    Actually, the X was first used by Christians as an abbreviation for Christ. In Greek, Christ is spelled Kh-r-i-s-t-o-s. The first letter is Chi, which looks a lot like our X. Thus, the abbreviation.

    Edit: that would look a lot cooler if I knew how to paste in Symbol font...

    I know you don't care one way or another, but it sure offends me when I see an X in Christmas, or it written in lower case. I agree with the movement with the bumper stickers "Lets Keep Christ In Christmas". That said, I also realize it is your right to call it anything you want to as it is my right to be offended.

    Bingo.

    'Keep the Christ in Christmas' is about Christians turning people away from God, imo.

    duh...Liberals hate Christians. Christians are the only group alive today, other than White Males who cannot be justified in claiming 'hate' crimes.


    Nobody cares if a Christian is offended, because those on the Left 'hate' things which are 'good'.

    I've been trying to edge out the anti-Christmas sentiment by wishing everyone a happy Chirst-mas (in other words, pronouncing the long 'i' in the word).

    The vast majority of liberals are Christians; your statement makes no sense.
