Well, it was the Christians who stole Christmas... @WhoDat: Um, No? Christians didn't "steal Christmas" eh? It`s the anti-Christians who are currently trying to "Steal Christmas" AWAY from the Christians... THAT is the subject of this thread. One of them anyhow.
Nor did Christianity "steal" some other religion`s festival: they COPIED it! 1600 years ago according to your own link.
You -imagine- I didn`t KNOW all this already? I studied this sh*t in high school: Western Christian College = Church Of Christ (non-instrumental) boarding school.
The POINT is that you`re so darn worked up about what ONE religion did 1600 years ago? But don`t notice that ALL the other religions did it too AND that atheists are trying to do TODAY what you`re condemning the Christians for doing 1600 years ago.

"I'm not going around saying Kwanzaa should be illegal, like certain (but not all!) atheists are doing that for Christmas. You DO agree? Eh?"
Like I already said, this about Christians & Christianity, which happens to be the dominant religion in North America, not just the USA. That`s the reason more people are focused on what they do as opposed to Muslims, Hindus, etc. I never said anything about making anything illegal, which you`re claiming, so I`d appreciate it if you stop putting words in my mouth. That`s the biggest problem I have with you, you constantly make false assumptions and accuse people of saying sh*t they never did. I`m just giving a history lesson as to where your supposed Christian holiday came from.

The Roman festival which the Christians "stole" wasn't copy-written. The Romans stole it from someplace else!
The "early Christians" picked that date for several reasons. Still? It doesn`t matter if it was the 24th or the 26th: it`s an artificially chosen day! It would "infringe" on SOMEONE`s previous "festival day" disregardless!
WHO is going to FORCE Christianity to change the date? You?
Do you know how "Kwanzaa" was chosen? It`s every bit as "fake"! Even more so: it claims historical authenticity where there is NONE. It was CREATED in 1966 ffs!

"It's only "evil" when Jews or Christians do it... just ignore EVERY other religion on Earth, ever!"
Well, it was the Christians who stole Christmas, which is what this thread is about, therefore I`m making fun of all you wacky Christians. Since Muslims don`t celebrate Christmas there`s no point in mentioning them in this discussion. I`m an atheist, remember? I despise all religions equally.
Get a grip and stop jumping to conclusions, a$$hole! You really need to learn to keep your emotions in check.
