Deck the Halls? Not if you're a true Christian ...

I noticed that the local Baptist Church didn't decorate for Christmas this year.
I wonder if it's because of the pagan origins of the decorations. I'll have to check out some other churches and see if they did same.

Well, you'd think they knew just exactly when that day was, right?

We should suggest that the Fundies move their holy celebration to a date which is closer to the date when their Hero was actually born. Then they can join in all the Seasonal Silliness of the Winter Solstice with impunity.

The Buy-Bull actually forbids Xmas trees :

Jeremiah 10:1-5 (King James Version):

[1] Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
[2] Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
[3] For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
[4] They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
[5] They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
