You just can't make this shit up.

Umm. Aside from the "burning cross" horror, one wonders if they remember that Christmas is when they are supposed to celebrating Jesus' BIRTH. The cross stuff comes about thirty years later...

Yes, exactly.

I have a neighbor who keeps a life-sized creche up all year round, along with a life-sized cross. It's icky.

I say, burn ALL the friggin crosses.
Lenny Bruce said, yeah, we Jews killed Jesus. If he comes back we'll do it again. Next day all the catholics will wear little gold electric chairs around their necks.

Ah, Balloon Juice -- one of my favorite blogs. :)

Also, note: no need for the elctric chairs, it's already an electric cross -- stylish and potentially deadly, but without all those messy nails! To order...

The earliest Christians used the fish as their symbol - a symbol of life, love, and sharing.

After the Roman Emperor Constantine took over the dhurch, the Roman symbol of torture and death - the cross - replaced it. And 'Christians' have been celebrating torture and death ever since.

Try to tell a modern-day Christian about this and they won't understand a word you say.

Too true.

They seem to have utterly forgotten the Beatitudes and the Golden Rule, too. Not to mention the actual teachings of Jesus. So much more fun to perseverate on Revelations and to look forward to being vacuumed up to heaven. Or whatever.
