    Maybe it's a Catholic thing, but I'm always reminded of this:

    Kathy I think most people realize that it was a fearful situation for Mary and Joseph. But Christmas is supposed to be positive because you are celebrating the birth of your savior. The circumstances around the time of the birth should pale in comparison to the positives that his life has brought to the table.

    And also that whole Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays nonsense is the most fabricated non-issue ever. People really need to think for themselves sometimes instead of getting into some hysteria because of O Reilly.

    I prefer to look at the "Bright" side of Christmas...this is a really depressing piece!

    Ahem, do NOT tell me what I should be doing or thinking or feeling. I have always thought for myself. For instance, I think you are wrong, but you can believe anything you wish or not. I don't like O'Reilly, nor Kerry, nor you-so far at least.

    Like I said, might be more of a Catholic think. Have a great Christmas, I will enjoy the JOY, but remember what the baby was born to do and Praise Him for that!

    Excuse me, but you should watch the response. Mine was in response to your post, I did not flame you, you did me. Warning one.

    Kathy you are obviously mentally ill if you think I flamed you. The reason I snapped at you is because you snapped at me for thinking I flamed you when I clearly did not. I want you tell me in which way I flamed YOU in my response. I think you are just imaging things because your hatred for me knows no bounds. It's sickening actually.
