Christmas on Wikipedia

I just looked at the entry for Christmas on wikipedia.  I don't remember it being so thoroughly sectarian as it is now, asserting flatly that the holiday is a commemoration of the birth of Jesus.  There is no mention of Mithra at all.  And, over on the Mithra entry there is no mention of December 25th being Mithra's birthday.What's next?  Will it be asserted flatly that "goodbye" means "God Be With You" with the implication that anyone who says it is at least a theist if not Christian?See More

"OK, so President Obama just solved the problem with the Catholic Church and contraception by requuring insurance companies to give free contraception to those who work for Catholic organizations who want such services.  Easy peasy."

"Good points, all.  BUT many atheists who were once Bible-worshippers say that their faith began to crumble when they realized that there were parts of the Bible that simply could not be explained away.  I was never one of those people but…"

"Not everyone is like this.  It is a well-known error of human judgement to suppose that others are more like us than they really are.  We only have our own individual perspective which makes it harder to understand others.  And, there…"
