The Real Root of Atheists' Anti-Christmas Rage

Modern atheist-'humanism' is a direct product of a Christian civilization warped by the so-called Protestant 'reformation' (Can we finally stop calling it a reformation? It didn't 'reform' the church of Christ is tore it asunder). Atheistic-Humanism is merely the 'end-product' of the 'glorious movement' that made 'every man his own authority' and 'Bible Doctor of Divinity' and has so far produced over 30,000 sects and turned Christianity into 'anything and everything' you care to call it. The oldest continuous institution on earth is the Catholic Church and it continues to say WILDLY unpopular things and make outrageous demands of our fallen nature while offering the living sacraments from the very hands of Jesus Christ - not a...

If I can share an opinion, The First Church was not the Roman Catholic Church, never was! Before the "centralization of the catholic church came into existence, Metropolitan "Centers" of Faith existed. Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem, Roam and others. Smaller congregation sought out opinion and conformations of thoughts and theology with the leaders of these churches, however this was not the "First Churches!" If you take the time to read the Book of Acts, the Church was and always was birth in Jerusalem, and the people of that church were Jews believing in there Messiah. Your argument about Modern atheist-humanism as a direct product of "Christian civilization" is without any merit historically or otherwise. On the contrary, what men call

Christianity has been the very foundations of "freedom and equality." Before you start to argue your points, I'm not talking about the "Misapplication" of Biblical truth done by men seeking power and fame. The fact that other churches which became "denominations" broke off from other congregations over doctrine does not point too a lack of authority or guidance within the Body of Christ. For the most part it shows a lack of understanding and Biblical exegesis as to what one should believe and act upon. But take courage, every Pastor, Priest, Pope, Bishop, Cardinal, Minister, From the time of Christ to this very day will given an accounting to what they've done and what they've said. And many who claim "faithfulness" to Christ and His Word,

will find themselves looking at eternity from the "wrong side." Why? Because God, Yeshua, Jesus made it clear through His word that we are to do it His way!, Not our way!

What you are referring to is the Messianic Jews who are the oldest living religion since the birth of the Christ. So yes, you are right Nevirim.

What the feds should do is say, the employees have 10 orr 12 official holidays, and change the policy to make them floating holidays that they can celebrate whatever holidays they chose. If they want to celebrate Christmas then take of that day or some days. Same for Ramadan or Hannukah. Easter or Ester. Whatever.
Why do some atheists embarrass themselves year after year trying to eradicate Christmas from American culture? Why do they make themselves societal hemorrhoids during this hallowed season? Is it because they are crusaders for equality, secularism’s saviors and humanism’s heroes? I’m sure that’s what they tell themselves when they’re pouting on their couches all alone on Christmas Eve after every single one of their friends has dumped them for being a rabid jackass.

I believe, however—and I could be wrong—that the reason some rage against the machine is that they hate God and love their sin, and bringing up Jesus in...
