Which reminds me - Hell is a very popular RR station over here in Norway -
the tourists like to get their picture taken when standing in line near the
building labelled "Gods expedition".
Btw - "Hell" and "Gods expedition" doesn't mean quite the same thing in
Norwegian as it does in English. Hell means "hillside" and "Gods
expedition" in old fashioned Norwegian just means "freight office"
It is against the law for a store to use that word. A person in the
store can at their own risk which is what you heard.
I am not wrong you are only saying that Mathu because you agree with
those that want to take Christmas away but are hypocrites because you
still celebrate it.

I still tend towards that view, but at the same time I'll acknowledge
that what Wolf wrote was very, very true - these idiots all sound alike
because they're all damaged goods...

many people are taking such risks these days. I heard it quite often.
Do you recall Christ's statement about looking at the beam in one's own eye
before pointing out the speck in another's?
Lying is a sin. Until you post a valid reference to a law stating it is
illegal to say "Merry Christmas" in a store, you are a liar. And until such
proof is posted by you, you will be an unrepentant liar. Good luck in hell.
Whether or not store employees can, should, or are required to say "Merry
Christmas" is purely a matter of store policy. The first amendment applies
to a store that has a policy of saying "Merry Christmas". Though the first
amendment does not apply in the case of a store that forbids employees from
saying it (a store can censor employees; the government cannot sensor the
That is just a statement of facts, and a request for your mythical law
against saying "Merry Christmas". It wasn't a reply to your last paragraph
because your words made no sense and border on the psychotic.
I have no desire to take away Christmas. I want to keep it forever. I spent
$995.00, without giving it a second thought, on a 1965 vintage stainless
aluminum Christmas tree just because it is the exact same tree our family
had when I was young.
But I celebrate Christmas out of tradition, not because of the mythical son
of some sky God. Who also happened to be a liar. Refer to the Sermon on the
Mount. Ask anything and it shall be done for you? Really? Then where is my
winning lottery ticket? Seen any mountains move lately at the behest of
some true believer? Neither have I.
So keep praying, not that it does any good. But for a test, here are some
1: Ask *anything* (and I mean something outrageously improbable) and have
it done for you. In fact do it ten times successfully. Prayer is like
roulette - you win some you lose some - purely by chance, regardless of
what the liar on the Mount said. I can pray to a doorknob and have about
50% of my prayers answered favorably.
2: Move a mountain and cast it into the sea. Jesus said you could do it, so
why not give it a whirl? Pick a small, insignificant mountain that nobody
will really miss.
3: As part of point 1, please forward to me next Wednesday's winning
Powerball numbers. That is a 1 in 146,107,962 chance. That is improbable
enough to make Richard Dawkins do a spit take with his morning coffee.
If nothing else, just get something productive done instead of screaming at
people and inventing wild conspiracy theories about the government banning
Christmas. If you can't do that, then at least pray for a more efficacious
Steve, this posting of yours does not make logical sense.
You say people should look at themself before going after others, and
then you go after others without looking at yourself.
So yes hell is where you will end up if you do not change and repent
which I am praying for daily.

I'll take the rest of you nonsense to mean that you cannot, in fact, come

Chrismas." Try as hard as you like; you won't find one. Or just go ahead
