Thake the nonsense out of all the doctrine and ritual...and you`re left with what? Just exactly what did a Jew carpenter have to say to anyone back then that was so all fired amazing we have to fall on our knees 2000 years later?
You really think there wasn`t any wisdom or compassion in the world till he came along...him and a bunch of goatherds and fishermen?
You ever hang out with goatheards and fishermen? You know what kind of people they are? You`re gonna run your life on any moral teachings of theirs? Maybe that`s why it`s such a CROCK...it`s brought to you by CROCKS...at least when they leave off fishing and swine tending.
Christianity has absolutely nothing to recommend it or make of it the big special deal you all have been convinced since childhood it MUST be or no presents at Christmas. You ever stop to wonder how many ridiculous notions you can plant in a kid`s head on that basis?
Compassion and kindness...wisdom and a sense of wonder in the face of the infinite unknown have been around way before Christ picked up a hammer. He brought nothing new...just had the good fortune to teach the Romans a good trick where social control is concerned...the Romans were Christian??? Really????
Grow up and buy your own presents and think a bit more and chant a bit less.
