Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful that I live in a country that was founded by people who, at least in their ideal minds and hearts, believed in liberty.
Liberty to practice a religion of one's choosing, and in the manner that one saw fit (vamos as long as you aren't hurting anyone).
That is why, in the coming of Winter, December, every year for the past five years or so me molesta un monton to listen to morons discuss how EVERYONE should say and be greeted with a hearty, "Merry Christmas"
This morning on the way to work I was already feeling nauseated--and I had to listen to two morning DJ idiots talk about their desire to greet everyone with, "Merry Christmas."
They were so adamant/angry about this non-issue. Every sentence they said puffed their feathers up a little bit more.

This is such a non-issue.
If you are a Christian, PUT A CHRISTMAS TREE IN YOUR HOUSE! :)
If you are a Christian, use the greeting, "Merry Christmas" among your Christian friends.
When you are out in public--Why do you even care about 1. signs in the store, 2. the decor in the library at UNC chapel hill (this is one of the places the DJ's discussed.)

I love Christmas trees. Christmas cards etc.
But my Jewish friends probably could not care less about seeing a decorated tree in the library.

I happen to think--along the lines of Jesus is the reason for the season--that Jesus would have been mortified that people were getting trampled over greed over a special at the store!!! YIKES people.

Get it? Liberty.
Get it? Do what you want in YOUR HOUSE, IN YOUR CHURCH. Don't get your dandruff in an uproar over what stores choose to do.
Finally, ask yourself, "would Jesus care what the card says?" Or would he care about the greetings and love people are sending out? hhmmm hhmm...????

:) Well said sister! That is the truly great thing about this country and its beacon of freedom - liberty! People look for things to be offended about... and so will always find something.
So glad to know your dandruff won't get in an uproar over season's greetings :)
