One has to ask why the disciples and apostles never observed this day.There are only a couple of instances of birthdays in the Bible and they are associated with the wicked. God is very specific when giving dates and details that He wants us to know in his word. Why did He omit the exact date of the Incarnation if He wanted people to observe it? And while there was a time that He did come in the flesh,the Word always was. Doesn't the word "christmas" mean the mass of christ in the RCC? If they coined the term and still use it,how can anyone else pretend that the word means something else whether they actually partake of a mass? Saying "merry,christmas" is the same as saying "happy death of Christ".
Nobody in their right mind cares about the nonsense you stated above about Christmas. There is nothing unscriptural about celebrating the Birth of Christ on 25 December even if that is not the date of Christ's Birth. The Wise Men celebrated the Birth of Christ. All of the Protestant Reformers under the guidance of the Holy Spirit retained celebrating the Birth of Christ in their churches. So knock it off.

What is this nonsense that because the RCC has clerical celibacy that it's position that homosexual marriage is against the Bible does not matter?

It is a fact that there are some Catholics who are Born Again Christians because of having embraced Jesus as their Personal Lord and Savior and trust in Him alone for salvation.
Jim L., Stop referring to George Walker Bush as Bush Jr when he is not Jr since he has a different middle name than his father does. In order for a son to be called Jr they have to have the exact same middle name as their father. Bush's father is named George Herbert Walker Bush.
Why should Pro Life Clinics be forced to promote abortion? Brown is a Catholic and supports abortion? Brown is going against the Catholic Church teaching that abortion is murder of unborn babies and is wrong. Catholics are not supposed to support abortion or homosexuality or artificial birth control.
Just owning a Crucifix, picture of Jesus or pictures of Saints or pictures and statue of the Virgin Mary is not in violation of the Second Commandment if one does not bow down to or pray to those graven images.

I dislike Obama as much as anybody else on here but I will not state that Obama is a Muslim because there is no evidence that he is currently a Muslim. Obama never attends Mosque but infrequently attends various Christian denominations.
Of course the Democrat candidates for president will not use the term 'radical Islam' because they are totally demon influenced and have Satan as their god that they are blinded by Satan into believing the lie that Islam is a religion of peace.

They choose not to believe, and that's fine, but they spend their lives fighting against something they claim doesn't even exist and are passionate about eradicating anything which references that which doesn't exist. What I don't understand is why they fight so hard against something "imaginary" as opposed to just minding their own and thinking, "Those fools, a God? Please", and just leaving it at that.
Atheists know that God exists but they want to be their own gods and don't want to be under God's authority.

Cruz is a conservative Republican which makes him far better than that demon possessed Obama. By stating that Cruz is no better than Obama you are being an enemy of Christ.

What arrogance to state categorically that Mother Teresa was lost and is in Hell at this minute. There is a possibility that Mother Teresa had embraced Jesus as her Personal Lord and Savior before passing away and became saved. Nobody but Jesus knows where Mother Teresa is right now.
