Sure, There’s a War on Christmas, But…

In a very good article, Tom Piatak sums up just how the war on anything Christian continues apace. Read it, it’s all good.

As a Christian, His Imperial Majesty does not take offense at private corporations committing suicide by pissing in the cornflakes of 90% of the population, that’s their choice. They own their businesses, so if they want to purge Christianity from said businesses, that’s their right as free Americans. We may shake our heads, but what we don’t understand when a business bans all references to, say, the Christian foundation of Christmas, is why offended Christians keep doing business with them. That just seems stupid to us. Not to mention self-defeating.

If, say, Starbucks decides to make their “red cups” no longer make any reference to Christmas, then why oh why do Christians keep buying coffee from them? Actually, why do anybody pay good money for the overpriced swill that they call “coffee?” But that’s a different matter. Starbucks has every right in the world to distance themselves from Christianity, so why not just stop supporting them with your money if you don’t like them? We know we don’t.

Christians aren’t exactly outnumbered in these United States of America, so if we started practicing what we preach instead of just sitting on our duffs being offended while continuing to subsidize the people who deride us and disrespect us (and obviously don’t care too much about our disposable income), then the problem would fairly soon cease to exist.

It makes no sense to us.

Anyway, that’s not our point with all of this. It’s that one paragraph stood out for us. We never watched the movie talked about in the article, and likely never will as it’s as depraved as everything else in our national culture at this time, but we don’t understand the implied outrage at one particular scene in it combined with the subsequent quote from the actor in it:

Hollywood continued its own War on Christmas, with its release of The Night Before, a movie about how three friends observe every Christmas Eve by descending to debauchery. In one of the film’s central scenes, a character wearing a sweater emblazoned with a Star of David vomits in the central aisle of a church during Midnight Mass and yells at the crucifix above the altar “We did not kill Jesus!” As noted by Jeannie Law at the Christian Post, the actor featured in that scene, Seth Rogen, told the Sydney Morning Herald “you can make fun of Christians, they’re cool.”

Sorry, but that’s pretty funny. A Jew walks into a church, vomits and protests loudly (while obviously drunk, been there, done that and have entirely too many t-shirts) that “we didn’t kill Jesus.”

Crude, to be sure, but sometimes that kind of humor is just funny. Or maybe you don’t think so, but we do. That’s also not our point. The character is obviously drunk out of his skull and makes a comment regarding something that we Christians are, allegedly, all up in arms about, which is that “Jews killed Jesus!” Er, we know that. We also know that Jesus was a Jew. And we also know that without Judaism, there would be no Christianity.

We’re not saying that vomiting in Church is acceptable, nor do we particularly like this trend in movie making about glorifying debauchery or making it “funny”, we’d personally love for Hollywood to maybe consider going back to making movies with a message beyond “getting shitfaced and outrageous is a good way to go through life is OK” because it isn’t, that’s also not our point, but our point is this (we’re sure you’re relieved we finally got to it, no?):

We think that statement by Seth Rogen in the interview is very powerful and not at ALL an attack on Christianity or Christmas.

What does he say? “You can make fun of Christians, they’re cool.”

Yes, you can. We make fun of ourselves at times. And sometimes the jokes are pretty damn funny.

You know who you CAN’T make fun of unless you don’t mind terribly much the prospect of having your throat slit by a raving, bearded lunatic?

We’re sure you do.

Not to mention: what’s wrong with being cool? What’s wrong with not taking yourself too seriously?

What Seth is saying, to us and we don’t know exactly what he meant with it since we, unlike Prozis, are not mind readers, was “Christians can take a joke without pouring gasoline over you and burning you in a cage. Alive.”

That’s not an “attack”, that’s an endorsement.

You’re right, Seth. You can make fun of us. And Jews are famous for NOT murdering people making fun of them.

That’s because we’re all of us, not insane and, more importantly, brothers and sisters.

So keep joking. We’ll make up some more of our own as well.

H’Shem bless us all.

Thatisall.

    I didn’t see the movie. Frankly, Rogan really isn’t all that funny. His version of the Green Hornet sucked.

    One of my favorite verses, and it’s in one of my favorite pieces of music too.

    so why do leftist atheists go to such lengths to vilify Christians and God? Because they’re empty, that’s why….I believe that human beings have an instinctual need to believe in something….ANYTHING…..that is all encompassing and all knowing. Be it God or Gaia or science or whatever, we need guidance. All of this defaming and mocking of Jesus and God, calling them our “little friends in the sky” and calling the Bible a book of fairy tales is just them denying their spiritual void and justifying their atheism. As much as they believe that they are the be-all end-all, I think something deep inside of them….something that they find deeply distasteful yearns for some kind of divine guidance and reassurance. So, they find a substitute, be it a worship of the planet, a worship of environmentalism, or the all encompassing golden idol of science. That false God tells them to discredit and disavow the true God and those that worship him, to mock Christians and use our savior in cute little memes to guilt us into accepting their socialist marxist ideology and causes. They profess to speak for our savior in those vile graphics, yet they deny his existence and his real words….as great a hypocrisy as can be……and they remain empty, their souls withering and their existence growing more shallow.

    As for me….. I don’t believe in the existence of God, I KNOW he’s there.
