Christmas is the one time of year when people of all religions come together to worship Jesus Christ!

For Christians it certainly is. For the rest of the world it's more like when people come together and celebrate leprechauns on March 17. The leprechaun being Santa.

Anyone ever notice how white baby Jesus is?



Jesus was from the Middle East 2000 years ago....   he wasnít white with blonde hair!  Haha

Hereís an interesting article by a Christian who thinks it matters what colour Jesus is depicted as:  https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2016/april/why-jesus-skin-color-matters.html

(You only get to read half the article, but the point is made by then).

Good article about a salient point, especially today. I am as pasty white as they come but I remember back in the day, after I had the opportunity to study geography classes in school, I asked my mom one year as we approached Christmas if JC was white. She said no and confirmed my suspicions that not a lot of white people are born in Nazareth. She also pointed out that different cultures who accept Christ portray him as their own, i.e. a black Christ, yellow Christ, etc. That made some sense to me. Any case, end of the day I'm not religious so I guess I'll burn in hell. So Merry Xmas and pass the popcorn.

I picture Jesus looking like JJ Abrams or a young Steven Spielberg.

I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

Surely to gawd you have re thought that and may wish to correct? "All religions"?
