Scoobysport91, matters of faith are never offensive if they are sincerely and lovingly applied. But some people do not have faith, and like Scrooge they zealously wish you to join them in their sad lot. Misery loves company! Wish em a Merry Christlmas anyway.
It's not offensive to say it, per se- while some people do get offended, I also know lots of Jewish and Muslim people who don't mind being wished a Happy or Merry Christmas. What *is* offensive is the assumption that everyone celebrates Christmas... retail stores should not require employees to wish "Merry Christmas" to all guests, unless they indicate that they celebrate and the employee feels comfortable with the greeting. Just some food for thought <3
Because people r offended but Christianity(because it tells them they r sinners). Christmas was originally a Christian holiday. Then there is also the fact that it means Christ(like Jesus Christ) mass(it's kinda like a religious celebration)
Christianity has taken its toll on humanity. The main problem in my mind and heart, is in our interpretation of the bibles words. Everybody takes there own path back to god--> re-legion. Why try to force them to take your way? What if you are wrong?
