Merry Christmas!

Yes, I said it and will continue to say it. I'm so tired of being politically correct and wishing people "Happy Holidays". Me, I beleive in Jesus and therfore will wish you "Merry Christmas". You may do the same to me when I say it to you or you may wish me "Happy Hanukkah", "Happy Kwanzza" or what ever your beliefs may or may not be. See, America was founded on the Christian belief (that there is a God) and with the exception of the past dozen or so years, we were allowed to speak our minds (Freedom of speech). Now, it seems that my saying Merry Christmas to some "offends" them and they use their freedom of speech right to stifile my freedom of speech. So, no matter what you want to say (well almost - please say something nice!) to someone this holiday season - remember, your right to say it is part of our culture.

what does this have to do with LLNL? After all the hand wringing about politically sensitive posts and now this?

Yeah...right! This country was not found on a christian belief is a myth, it was stumbled across based on pure greed.

Merry Christmas

But now saying "Happy Holidays" sounds like it offends you! I have to be politically correct and choose "Merry Christmas" because otherwise you are offended?

Don't worry about it and say what you want. You ARE being nice to say whichever. When you actually find someone who is offended, I'd like to hear about it.

Happy Holidays!

(I've always like that one. Why choose wishing people one good day when you can wish multiple! :D )

Neko. Your answer to all the goons who object to Christmas or for that matter anything they consider not politically correct should be a quote I heard on the previews for the movie Valkyrie. "There's no problem that can't be resolved with high explosives and careful planning."
