I'm an atheist that proudly celebrates Christmas.

Tonight, my formerly ultra-religious, repressive uncle confided in me that he was led away from religion, and is now atheist.

That is the best Christmas gift I could have asked for.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 25 2011 12:31 AM EST

Merry I love you allidays! :P

TRENDING: Americans still prefer 'Merry Christmas' over 'Happy Holidays'
Let it be noted that it took two posts for this thread to become political, by Ranger's hand.

If this escalates from here, so be it.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 25 2011 12:36 AM EST

I say Happy Holidays a lot, and it has nothing to do with religion. I'm just really lazy.

Lord Bob December 25 2011 12:38 AM EST

For the sake of inclusiveness, I prefer "Happy Holidays" when in public.

However, among family I will wish "Merry Christmas" as is the standard.

Demigod December 25 2011 12:39 AM EST

Six of one, half a dozen of the other. Makes no difference to me either way.

Demigod December 25 2011 12:41 AM EST

Also, merry Christmas and happy holidays to all! It's now Christmas on the east coast of the U.S. :)

Lord Bob December 25 2011 12:42 AM EST

Makes no difference to me either way.
To most atheists it doesn't either. But we try to be inclusive for the sake of other faiths. The myth that it's atheists raising a fit over the words "Merry Christmas" is just that: a myth.

Merry Christmas from the Central timezone :)

LB, you are just an idiot. You are the one who goes off the freaking deep end and reads into things.

Read the first damm post. There was both HAPPY HOLIDAYS and HAPPY CHRISTMAS.

I just posted a link to what people prefer.

I am just happy people are celebrating and are just overall much more pleasant to be around. Could not care less who or what cause they celebrate.

Demigod December 25 2011 2:14 AM EST

LB, you are just an idiot.

There's the holiday spirit.

Quyen December 25 2011 4:38 AM EST

Merry christmas and Happy holidays!

Best wishes to you and all your loved ones people...whatever you might believe in, if anything. Let's just hope we all get to enjoy these times.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 25 2011 7:30 AM EST

A joyous time of the winter solstice to you all, now commence with the merry making.

Underage Drinking December 25 2011 7:57 AM EST

Merry HoHo ;)

AdminShade December 25 2011 9:11 AM EST

As far as Christmas being a Christian holiday and other beliefs, I tend to be annoyed when people cannot accept other beliefs around those times...

Also CB isn't about winning souls for anyone, so please refrain from insulting other people or trying to.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] December 25 2011 12:19 PM EST

Merry christmas :)

[21:55] <Zenai> tell CB Merry Cristmas from me >:-)

Lord Bob December 25 2011 11:05 PM EST

LB, you are just an idiot.
Ranger, you are a troll. You've always been one. You're never going to change.

What should have been a holiday celebration thread immediately turned into another point about "what the people want."

The fact that it came from you, given your history, has much to do with it. I just have zero tolerance for it anymore. Maybe from someone else it would have gone without notice. But I honestly believe your goal was to make a point against a certain segment of the population, a segment you've attacked in the past, rather than join in the conversation.

And with posts like "LB, you are just an idiot," we'll see just how committed the admins are to keeping the peace around here instead of just enforcing the PG rule.

QBRanger December 25 2011 11:08 PM EST

LB,

You are still an idiot.

My post had nothing to do with politics. I can say any post you make can be political but do not.

And actually you be the troll in this thread, starting up a personal attack because your feeling are dented.

I was discussing the first post when it was happy holidays and happy christmas.

If anyone is to be fined for going off topic, I would hope it is you.

QBRanger December 25 2011 11:10 PM EST

Tonight, my formerly ultra-religious, repressive uncle confided in me that he was led away from religion, and is now atheist.

That is the best Christmas gift I could have asked for.

That is way off topic and really offended me as someone who believes in G-d. Implying that really religious people are repressive. What a dolt you are.

Django December 25 2011 11:11 PM EST

Come on, lets get back on track.. This "was" a nice post. Lets finish it on a good note. Hope you all had a wonderful day and wish you all well!

Lord Bob December 25 2011 11:17 PM EST

You are still an idiot.
And you are still a troll.

Your post was from a site titled Political Ticker. And again, my response has everything to do with your prior behavior here. Yep, I admit 100% that if someone else posted that I would have let it slide. But you've blown all your chances with the things you have said here in the past.

And my first post was not a personal attack. I simply pointed out what you did. That wasn't a personal attack. Your calling me an idiot was the first personal attack here.

That is way off topic and really offended me as someone who believes in G-d. Implying that really religious people are repressive.
Um, no. I said HE was repressive. He was, in the past. Read better. What a dolt you are.

Lord Bob December 25 2011 11:20 PM EST

Come on, lets get back on track..
I'm really sorry guys, but I have zero tolerance for his little jabs anymore. I'm calling him out on it. Apologies to the rest of you, but I'm just done letting this stuff slide on these forums. The admins need to do a better job here instead of just worrying about potty words.

QBRanger December 25 2011 11:22 PM EST

Did not matter where the post was from. It was to show what people prefer.

If that was not obvious, then you are more than an idiot.

Lord Bob December 25 2011 11:26 PM EST

Several of your arguments in the past have revolved around "polls show people want this." It's what you do when you want to make a point, in this case against people who want to make the holidays more inclusive.

This is not me being an idiot, though note that's another personal attack by you. This is me telling you enough is enough.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 25 2011 11:26 PM EST

Please guys, please no more insults. No more political comments. Let's just let me enjoy the last hour an half I have of Christmas.

(Consider this a warning)

Lord Bob December 25 2011 11:28 PM EST

I'm done. No more hijacking for me. I've made my point.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] December 26 2011 12:39 AM EST

My turn....
Ranger if your linking wasn't advertently political the trolling of LB with name calling, deep ends, and excusing with social preference was the worst response to deny with.
A disclaimer or kindly "not meant to be political" could have avoided this. =/

QBRanger December 26 2011 12:43 AM EST

Or LB could have read the post, thought about it and surmised that it was in response to the OP.

But using logic seems to get in the way of a good trolling for some.

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] December 26 2011 12:45 AM EST

No kidding..............................
Merry Christmas.
