    yea yea yea... you are not the only belief system with a holiday during this time of year, dogma junkie. We've already won; go ask Retail store greeters all about it.

    This is all a matter of people getting worked up over style and outward presentation rather than substance.

    Religious views are intensely personal, and anyone who is in any way impacted by whether or not a retailer says Christmas, or Holidays, or anything at all has completely overlooked the fundamentally important aspects of the holiday and has instead focused on shallow cultural lip service to the holiday.

    No one whose religious faith is worth a nickel will give a damn about this.

    Who said anything about doing away with something? Are you sure you read my post correctly? The point is, your religious faith should not be the least bit impacted by whether WalMart chooses to give it lip service or not.

    fair enough.. go take your business somewhere other than the entire range of major retailers who are not about to stop wishing non-christians happy holidays just because you think you own the fucking season.

    Never said I was. I just don't want Christmas and Christ ousted by kooks who think God doesn't exist or should not be mentioned. Christmas isn't a holiday, it's a Holyday. You haven't won anything.

    never said I owned it.. Christians celebrate Christmas as the birth of Christ. You retailers wanna say holiday. go for it.. I don't have to shop for anything. that's not what Christmas is about after all.. shopping or not shopping bothers me not at all.
