The local Muslim corner shop fella wears a fucking Santa hat and has Slade banging out in his shop all through December. Don’t let the media masses brain wash you into thinking our precious Christmas is being radicalised. Because it isn’t, it’s bollocks.

Merry Christmas fuckers... :Wiiiine!:

Well said Dean it's like that across the nation.
The media keep gnawing away at it to divide the population.


It’s ridiculous isn’t it. People like Starbold lap it up and spread their hate. Fucking idiots...

and I guess you mean me too? :paranoid:

anyway, I started this thread for debate, not to spread hate, it's out there, so I asked the question...not every debate is meant to spread hate, it's just meant to create a discussion.

Oh and here is that link about that poor shop keeper

No, not all Holly. You don’t spread hate and bullshit stories like Starbold and his ilk. You’re raising a valid point because even if I do think it’s bollocks, there’s no denying that these stories about Christmas are out there and being discussed.

You are allowed to wish anyone you want a Happy Christmas. Why do you think you're not allowed to, Holly?

Holly wrote:I'm really curious about what most of our members and guest think. Are you quite happy to wish your neighbours, your local shop keepers, your hair dresser, your postie, and who ever else you run into every day a "Merry Christmas"...?...or would you say Happy Holidays?

Happy Holidays??? What's it for? To celebrate the birth of Jesus of course ...Happy Holidays my arse!

I personally say Merry Christmas no matter what...and I really don't give a shit what nationality or colour people are. I live in a Christian Country and that's that, I'm very sorry if anyone feels offended, but hey, plenty of other Countries the offended can go to, no?? Why should I have to be sensitive towards other religions? Seriously, I don't get it, why is it expected of us Christian people to show sensitivity? Why can't we Christians expect sensitivity from people of another religion? People who are guests in Christian Countries...I really don't get it...Why should we not be allowed to carry on our tradition?

43 day to Christmas :holly:
I agree with you and Vicky here. Whether or not some people are offended by 'Merry Christmas', or if it's just largely a perception created by the media, is neither here nor there.

You are merely posing the question/s, anyone who thinks your post is a 'hate' post, is a dick! If I hear anyone say Happy Holidays.. I will ignore them. It will mostly be Americans though. :mrgreen:

Hmm get 'trouble' tattooed on your forward, 'Posh Trouble'.

I agree that stuff should start in December. It's ok talking about Christmas now though. Amazon have had some of my money already, some Christmas stuff bought... I think they love it when I turn up in November haha They don't get all that much out of me the rest of the year.
