The difference between rain and urination.

“There's another old saying, Senator: Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.” – Fletcher in The Outlaw Josey Wales
This opinion column appeared in Friday's Birmingham News: "So-called 'War on Christmas' isn't real."
I sent the following to the Letters to the Editor of that liberal rag, not that it will get printed:

Subject: re: "So-called 'War on Christmas' isn't real."
Clete Wetli, head of the Madison County Democratic Party, assures us that the "So-called 'War on Christmas' isn't real." Given that he is a Democrat party stalwart, he will no doubt also assure us that his political party isn't for citizen disarmament, doesn't believe in the collectivist "nanny state," and isn't complicit in the deaths of tens of millions of the unborn under the guise of "a woman's right to choose" death. He likely also would have us believe that Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the politicization of the IRS and the NSA abuses are all figments of our imagination. His president also said that Obamacare would let you keep your health care plan. McDonald's evidently isn't the only outfit that deals in whoppers. The difference is, with the Whopper you get something of value for your money rather than obvious lies. My grandpa also used to have a saying, "Don't (urinate) down my back and tell me it's raining." Clete would do well to heed that advice.

What are you? Some kind of damn Ferner?
Every red blooded American knows that McDonalds makes Big Macs, Burger King makes Whoppers!

You just killed any validity your response might have had. I bet the will post it, just to make you look bad.

Burger King, not McDonalds

Good letter.

Small point, Burger King deals in Whoppers, not McDonalds.


God bless and thanks for your hard work.

Shows you how much I eat fast food these days, which is to say, never. How will my credibility ever recover?

Thanks for the correction, nonetheless.

Bible believers would do well to investigate the history of Christmas and it's Roman Catholic/Pagan roots; it has nothing to do with the birth of the Christ and everything to do with the birth of the AntiChrist.

Jesus was born on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, not December 25th.

Many Christians will say, no matter, it is the real Christ we are celebrating - not a pagan holiday, not realizing they are doing something God hates by doing this, Deuteronomy 12:4, 31.

If you really want to piss off the powers that be, observe the Lord's Feasts in obedience to your Creator. Celebrate the Anointed One in the way He has established, as He said in Matthew 5:19.

Let the heathens rage about their holy days; it is no matter of ours.

Well said, Warrior Class....sad how many "Christians" don't know of the Christmas lie or write it off saying, "Well, God knows what's in my heart!" ignoring that the Jews built the golden calf to HONOR God and yet He was STILL displeased.

Jesus was most likely born in late September - he died and arose from the grave at the age of 33-1/2 years.

Since when is it ever a bad time to worship and praise God and Jesus?

Celebrate and have joy on the Sabbath and other Holy Days.

Please read the account of the golden calf from Exodus 32:5-6.

The Israelites built the idol to make a "feast day" (also known as a holy-day or holiday) to the LORD (YHWH). They intended to HONOR God with their sacrifices to the intermediary (golden calf idol) since their intermediary (Moses) had gone up on Mt. Sinai and was presumed dead. They fell into the ways they'd known in Egypt where people sacrificed to an intermediary to get the favor of the gods.

Christmas is no different. You know it is a lie as you stated (it is not date of the Savior's birth) and then you question why Christians shouldn't follow it?

Lying discredits your position. Condoning it, discredits the Bible.

An atheist will your parents LIED to you about Santa Claus and the Tooth is this "Jesus" story any different? They know he wasn't born on Dec. 25th them, you're proving their point.

Does not God command that you to abstain from bearing false witness? By supporting and celebrating a holy day that is NOT ordained by God, you are bearing false witness against the truth. You are to be a lover of the truth.

Further, look up the traditions associated with Christmas....particularly, look up verses in the Bible referring to evergreen trees (or every green tree)....they are pagan and enumerated around 10 times and relating to things like human sacrifice, Baal, Sun, or other types of idolatrous worship. Isiah 57:5, Jeremiah 10:2-4, etc.

God commands that we do not take away from or add to His word and that we "keep not the way of the heathen"....this would apply to His feasts and festivals...yet we ADD TO them with holy days of pagan origins with pagan rituals....and this is something He abhors as evidenced in Exodus.

In short, worship God and Jesus on Dec. 25th as you would any other day...but engaging in pagan traditions and customs on this unsanctified holy day is not what God requires or wants.

Love in Messiah,
