    Holy shit this is either 2017 DJ3-level trolling, or the worst take I've ever seen on here. And there are a lot of bad takes on here.

    You forgot the real reason for the season -- the Winter Solstice.

    Obviously not. Those are not offensive holidays.

    It's X-ing out the offensive part of the holiday.

    Good to see we all found something to debate and be angry at one another about.

    No that is December 21st - the real reason for the Christmas season is Jesus Christ

    Let me get this straight - you have no problem with other religious holidays only the Christian one.

    Can’t understand that but that makes you a Anto-christian bigot. May I submit then that saying Merry Christmas is not offensive or in poor taste since so many people do it and somehow you are struggling with personal issues related to hatred and bigotry.

    I won’t get offended at your hatred like some liberal nutjob but I will pray for you and wish you the Merriest of Christmas’.

    Except if it’s a non-christian holiday. Hypocritical?

    Well non-christians aren't the problem with our public life, though, you know? Like if Judiasm was what was ruining everything, then it would be a different conversation.

    I did my undergrad in the deep south. Plenty of people send plenty of things that were both offensive and in poor taste, and did so quite openly. That didn't make them not offensive and in poor taste.

    Most importantly, though there is no such thing as anti-christian bigotry.

    Anti-christian bigotry in America is like "reverse racism" in america. It's not actually possible.

    There CAN NOT be anti-christian bigotry in America, because christians are the dominant religious group, and thus bigotry does not apply to them.

    Your statement, hatred, and bias prove you wrong. You sir - are an anti-Christian bigot because you hate Christians - whether you are "dominant" is irrelevant. Your weak argument is the same flawed logic that excuses racial hatred on the part of non-whites.

    You've lost me as your argument cannot and does not hold water.

    I think there are some muslim terrorists that would like to talk with you.

    Also - Louis Farrakhan and many Democrat political leaders think the Jews are ruining everything.

    I hold no hate for Xtians! I love them, as I love people of all religious or areligious backgrounds. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, and they are no different from normal people in that regard.

    We all know that non-whites cannot be racist, as racism is a racially biased construct. It's only reasonable that the same truth applies to faith as well. In America, in 2019 (soon to be 2020), being anti-Xtian is simply impossible.

    But we shouldn't hate them, because they are not to blame for their faith. That would make us no better than racists.
