Christians are massacred and not a word is said. Over 500 people, including women and children, and not a word is said. When will we speak out loudly that Christians are persecuted and killed all over the globe and nothing is done. In fact, it has become politically correct to persecute Christians in the USA, which was founded on the freedom of religion. It means that we are allowed to practice and promote our Christian faith, not that we have to hide it behind words like Winter Holiday or Spring Holiday. While the beginnings might have ties to other celebrations, Christmas has come to stand for the day that Jesus Christ was born as Easter represents the day he gave his life for us so that our sins may be forgiven and we could have eternal life. There is but one God that we worship. Although we do sin by allowing other gods into our lives. And, just as a point, God is almighty and can do so much that our human minds cannot even comprehend.
While others seem to think that Obama is the anointed one and a messiah, he is just a man who managed to be elected to the highest office in the land. I must say that the way he has been treated reminds me of the way the Egyptians treated their pharaohs. They thought they would last forever, but they were just humans who died and were buried forever.
