    You aren't everybody. When, and if, I go to Midnight Mass, I am thinking about the birth of Jesus Christ. The Golden Calf is OT. If that's what Christmas means to you that's your business. Don't tell me what it is to me.

    Merry Christmas, Grinch.

    Would you say this post when lighting the candle? Just saying. CO would be in my prayers instead of out of them if I were a Catholic as you are. I hope you do celebrate Midnight Mass this year as I will and pray for those you choose.

    In 313, Constantine and Licinius issued the Edict of Milan decriminalizing Christian worship. The emperor became a great patron of the Church and set a precedent for the position of the Christian emperor within the Church and the notion of orthodoxy, Christendom, ecumenical councils, and the state church of the Roman Empire declared by edict in 380.

    Not money, as it's just a commodity as well, but liberalism out of which emerges two types of materialism, socialism and capitalism.

    Correct, already established that, and neither are you.

    I already said that it's not this for some individuals but pull out of that viewpoint for a minute. If society as a whole were going to midnight mass like you, would 99% of what we are exposed too now for months before 12/25 be BUY BUY BUY?

    Or would it be more about the birth of Christ?

    Or even a little more, like... start easy, 5% more say?

    Hell, PC and capitalism has basically forbidden the words "Christ" and "Christmas" in what they propaganda us with.

    So tell me again how society is a Christian nation in this sense. Look at Islam however you wish but do you see Islam $#@!izing their deeply religious days with trash like we do?

    Did the Roman Christians support Rome during their Christian period?
