2. Frankly

I could give a Rat's Behind as to whether someone gets upset by my saying Happy Holidays or whatever I choose to greet them with as long as I am civil.

BTW my normal Winter Time Greeting is "Happy Rock Salt" for those of us in areas where it snows.

3. This "happy holidays" is just another made up controversy for the right to control their minions

This particular one allows the minion, jealous of people who are actually persecuted, to experience the feeling that he or she is being religiously persecuted.

10. +1 part of the larger effort to make white people feel persecuted

GOP goal is to make white people feel persecuted by minorities and immigrants and liberals, so white people wont realize it is Republican billionaires that are screwing them.

11. Totally agree with both of you. A fabricated rift designed to tear people apart.

14. ...and like so many of them, absolutely stupid.

The word "Holiday" is derived from "Holy Day" so for those who love to be governed by their religion, wishing them a happy holy day should make them happy.

Then again, those people are generally ignorant.

The same goes for the trope, now so popular, that life begins at conception. Once again, their ignorance is showing. Their beloved Bible clearly states (in Genesis) that life begins at first breath, and ends at last breath.

4. I wonder where that number comes from.

Rummaged for a few minutes, see the claim everywhere (sometimes as "10s of thousands" or "50-70,000" but nothing as to where the number originated.

Perhaps it descended, dovelike, on an evangelist's brow?

5. Considering that not all of us are Christian or Catholic,

"Happy Holidays" is appropriate. There are a multitude of other holidays at the end of December: Channukah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan (sometimes), Winter Solstice.

13. That is because Obama IS a Christian and NOT a liar.

Trump on the other hand IS a liar and is NOT a Christian.

15. I have never cared one way or another which one I say.

However, one year I was a bell ringer for the Salvation Army and this guy walked past me and after I said "Merry Christmas" he turned and asked me if I was Christian. I said "no" and he went balistic. He started telling me I was sac religous and would burn in hell and that I should not be working as a bell ringer. Stomping off he said he would never put money in my pot. Well, ten minutes later he came up said hi and put money into my pot. All I had done during his Christian temper tantrum was smile and continue to be polite.
