  • German Wishes Muslim Man ‘Merry Christmas’ – Muslim Pulls Knife and Stabs German in the Back

    American Patriot Post ^ | 12/26/2014 | Bob Hammond
    Another life lesson from the religion of peace. A trio of well wishers were telling passersby “Merry Christmas” in Cologne, Germany, when they happened on a Muslim man accompanying two Muslim women. The man took offense at the greeting and proceeded to attack one of the men with a knife, stabbing him multiple times in the back and neck. Considering the attack took place on Christmas Eve, the Muslim man was probably out searching for a patsy, looking to be offended just enough so that he could carry out his cowardly attack and then claim himself as a victim of...
  • Man kicked off American Airlines plane after rage over 'Merry Christmas' greeting

    12/26/2014 8:42:29 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 86 replies
    When a gate agent greeting everyone the same way told him "Merry Christmas", he responded "You shouldn't say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas." "Well, what should I say then?" the agent reportedly replied. "Don't say, 'Merry Christmas!'" the man retorted, now shouting, before walking past her onto the plane. After a flight attendant greeted the unidentified man with the same Yuletide cheer, he snapped and began lecturing the staff about why they shouldn't say "Merry Christmas." The crew unsuccessfully tried calming him down before he was escorted off the plane.

One member of our family, Princess, died in September and this is our first Christmas in eight years without her. We miss her very much. Nevertheless, on the whole it's been a pretty good year.

    Jihad Watch ^ | December 24, 2014 | Robert Spencer
    In October, Jeffrey Tayler wrote in Salon that the Qur’an “backs up jihad, suicide attacks (“martyrdom”), beheadings, even taking captive women as sex slaves.” This was singular for Salon, which usually whitewashes the truth about Islam and jihad and excoriates those who expose it as “racists” and “bigots,” but now it is clear why Tayler was able to get away with it: he is supremely hostile to Christianity. Here, he gives a characteristic Salon Christmas greeting: Jesus likely never existed, but Muhammad’s existence is well established. “Let’s make Bill O’Reilly’s head explode: We desperately need a war on Christmas lies,”...

On this night of all nights when families gather and friends share gifts and time, some of us are, for various reasons, spending Christmas Eve solo. Not necessarily a bad thing - alone doesn't always mean lonely. But, it does mean alone. Check in if that includes any of you, my fellow Freepers.

    A Boston woman is asking the city of Boston to include a menorah next to the wreaths at the Boston Public Library. According to WHDH, Esther Weissman considers a wreath to be a symbol of Christmas. “The wreaths are a seasonal display; they are secular symbols and do not represent any religion,” the Boston Public Library said in a statement to CBS Boston. Weissman thinks otherwise. “If this is a city of inclusion and diversity and fairness for everybody, then it seems like an easy thing to do,” Weissman told WHDH.

And yet it does not take long to consider that no human being would ever craft this sort of entrance of God into our world. Surely we would envision God’s entrance in Cecil B. DeMille proportions.  (DeMille was producer of “The Ten Commandments” and other classic Hollywood Epics, in case I’m showing my age). Yes, there would be grand sets, a cast of thousands, palaces, trumpets,...

I love snowmen, candy canes, snowflakes and all kinds of Christmassy things,” said Siebert.A nativity scene, Siebert’s favorite Christmas decoration, had been a part of the park decorations as long as she could remember. So the 13-year-old wrote a letter to the editor of the local newspaper to let everyone know how she felt about this year’s omission.  “It would be nice if everybody...

    When I was a kid growing up in Detroit and Boston, there were multiple Christmas celebrations in public school. Everyone participated in the celebrations, including the Jews and the many individuals of Middle Eastern descent. Christmas carols were sung, presents were exchanged and food was consumed in a partylike atmosphere. There were very few people stoking the fires of sensitivity or trying to make everyone feel different. There’s nothing wrong with diversity, but there is also nothing wrong with unity and enjoying overarching fun and good will. When someone said “Merry Christmas,” it was regarded as a salutation of good...

Gracie’s card read, “Merry Christmas. Thank you for your service.” It also included an American flag. But the bedridden veterans at the...

    My company, a major metropolitan newspaper, used to host an annual Christmas party for employees. But, this year, the paper broke with tradition, hosting instead a “holiday party,” so as not to offend the sensibilities of those that do not believe Christ the Son of the God. Well, I respect the Constitutionally-protected right of every American to practice a religion other than Christianity, the faith of this nation’s founders. Or to practice no religion whatsoever (which I suspect of many, if not most of my journalistic peers). What I find objectionable, though, is the insistence of non-Christians that the holiday...

Tell me Obama does not think differently. And, as many Americans kill off Christmas as the celebration of the birth of Jesus, so the Soviets replaced Saint Nick with "Father Frost" - a man who gives out presents because he is a generous communist.

Adding insult to injury, they don't even allow write-ins on their...
