    Christmas Truce Thread

    Much like when the Germans and the Allies put down their weapons in the trenches in 1914, I'm opening this thread as a gesture of peace and goodwill, at least for the next 36 hours anyway.

    No nasty words, no mean thoughts.

    Just Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

    May the Birth of our Savior, and His subsequent life, death, and resurrection motivate and transform all of us to be more like Him.


    Merry Christmas TWEB Civics forum people!

    Merry Christmas, Jim. I hope you can spend some time with family.

    I'm hosting Christmas for the first time, so the next couple days will be interesting.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Thank you. I hope you have a good Christmas as well... and don't forget who it is we're celebrating.

    Have a warm and safe Christmas James...

    And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...
