Christmas 2014

“Outrage over Nativity scenes, menorahs, images of Santa Claus, wreaths, and even candy canes have become just about as traditional in America this time of year as eggnog and tree lighting.

Across the nation, controversies and Christmas caution are already underway.

In Indiana, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is seeking a court order for the permanent removal of a Nativity scene outside a local courthouse. Note: this is the fourth year in a row FFRF has tried to get it removed.

Michigan, however, may win the prize for diversity. It’s Capitol Building will not only have a Nativity scene, it will also have a display from the Satanic Temple. What exactly does this ‘display’ look like?

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    Hardly anyone today knows what ‘Christmas’ means. It would require some thought, and not just a minute sound or video bite. That’s why the primitive religions, such as Islam, are advancing.

    It is Christmas again, T.G.. I’m not a very religious man (nobody is perfect)- more in the vain of Einstein’s believes, however, the World is a bit of a mess these days and if there is a salvation it will be some sort of Christian-inspired future in the ‘English-speaking World’ as imperfect as it may seam. This, in my unwavering opinion, is the only positive outcome and must be supported at any cost. Merry Christmas.
