Why is Christmas a Federal Holiday?

From the article.

"The Government Didn't "Name it" Christmas
Yes, I see the point that the statute includes the word "Christmas" and that the word has a clear religious connotation (aka "Christ"). But, as the Christmas Wikipedia entry notes, the date of December 25 may have been selected as early as the 4th Century (more than a millennium before the U.S. government existed)! And it was certainly called "Christmas" before the federal statute. 

If the government were to take a random day and call it "Christ Day" then this argument would be more compelling. But the date and name simply didn't originate with the government. Admittedly, the statute does still acknowledge "Christmas" but that is in line with the Court's rationale, which I explain below.

"The Calendar of Public Activities"
If you read the Court's opinion it offers secular purposes for the holiday such as "accommodat[ing] the calendar of public activities" and "recognizing the cultural significance of the holiday." In short, the "public calendar" had a holiday before the government passed the statute, and that holiday was "Christmas."

Letter to Radio show host Dr. Laura Pointing Out How Silly it is to use the Bible as a reason to do or not to do something (This is brilliant)

As anyone who reads our blog or listens to our podcast knows we support marriage equality so when this appeared on my Facebook wall I just had to share it with the rest of you.   Don't know who the author is or if it was actually sent to radio host Dr. Laura but it shows just how trying to use the bible to say homosexuality is wrong or really why we should or should not do things is a pretty weak argument.  As this letter points out in a rather humorous way, the bible says all kinds of things we are not supposed to do many of which would make life rather difficult to live.  So enjoy this one, it is great.  The letter starts off like it supports Dr. Laura's homophobic views but quickly points out how silly they really are.   

Dr. Laura letter- 

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of Menstrual "uncleanliness" - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there degrees of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14) I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your adoring fan.

I do hope she actually got this letter or sees it printed on a blog.  I'd love to hear her response.

What if nobody showed up at the stores on Thanksgiving?! That would tell the greedy stores that the holiday with family means more than their greedy sales! Protest and DON'T shop on Thanksgiving. Employees from stores should be able to stay home on the holiday and be with their families!

One of the dumbest comments I've heard about our choice to be Child Free

Posted by Zman

Now Littleflurry and I have heard all kinds of dumb comments when people find out we are child free by choice.  Trust me we've heard them all.  One of the dumbest comments is, "well god expects everyone to have children."  My response to  this is to say, "So you're telling me that this god of yiours who supposedly loves and cares for all human kind expects people to have kids weather they want them or not?"  Really does not make this god seem very loving or caring to expect people who have no interest in having kids to have them and makes god seem rather selfish.  Not the kind of god I'd chose to believe in.  To the people who use this stupid argument I'd suggest they turn the news on once in a whle and see how some people treat and neglect their kids.  Or just walk in to any Walmart and see how many people don't even pay attention to what their kids are doing.  Obviously there are plenty of people who should not be having kids.

If there really is a god and I don't believe there is but let's say there is just for the sake of argument, I believe it would expect people to make up their own minds about having kids.   One thing I have noticed from reading the bible, yes I'm an atheist but I have read it,   The god of the bible seems to only think of himself and does not really seem to care about what humans think or feel.  Not the kind of god I'd chosse to believe in.
