  1. good grief. “Jesus neve said – Merry christmas…”
    I think whoever said that completly missed the point.

  3. I agree with you stupid. Also, Jesus is still alive and he probably does want us to honor Him and remember His purpose instead of spending like mad and saying it is all from “Santa Claus”.

  5. Or maybe there is no such thing as god or jesus and who cares if i say merry christmas or happy holidays.

  7. christmas was an arrogant attempt at taking attention away from yule……..it’s not his “birthday” because it was summer when he was bloody born! ugh arrogant idiots…….

  10. we don’t know that the quote is attributed to Jesus Christ. might just be some guy that pronounces it the “hey zeus” way that had some money to spend on a billboard. but yeah more than likely some fundamentalist coot. seasons greetings.

  12. Uh… The sign doesn’t say that Jesus ever said it. Nor did it imply that he ever said it. It says that he misses HEARING it.

    Saying and hearing are two different things.

  14. It doesn’t matter that Jesus was probably born in the summer and not on Dec 25. It just happens that we only celebrate his birth on Dec 25. Arrogant idiots? No.

  16. Christmas is a Catholic holiday to celebrate the life of Christ with a mass. Dec. 25 is celebrated as a holiday as an attempt by the Catholic Church to recruit the other religions who celebrate the Winter Solstice. These other religions (i.e. Egyptian, Germanic, Greek, Roman, etc.) from before the time of Christ celebrated the Winter Solstice as the birth of the Sun God who was born of a virgin.

  18. Mordred, I know that he was not born on December 25th. My religion does not advertise this but….we actually believe he was born in April. We celebrate his birth along with the rest of the Christian world on December 25th because it doesn’t really matter WHEN we celebrate. What matters is WHY we celebrate…and that we celebrate his birth at all.

  20. Well heck, I’m not even Christian and I love Christmas. Who doesn’t like lit up rooftops and candy canes and carols? I can’t bring myself to say “Happy Holidays”, it just feels weird. Oh well…

  22. I’m a Christian, and I find this billboard ridiculous. Jesus was always saying, pray to God, and try to be empathetic to others. This is the kind of childish guilt-game misdirection about the true nature of Christianity that drives people away from it. As a matter of fact, technically Christians should not celebrate Christmas, which is 100% based on a pagan holiday. The Bible provides a very specific list of God’s chosen holidays and, guess what? Christmas isn’t one of them. I don’t think that means people can’t celebrate Christmas, but let’s not be forgetting the facts and getting all weird on everyone with it….

  24. God is dependent upon your attention and approval, like Stewart Smalley or your wacked out ex-gorlfriend. Without continuous and exhausting affirmation, the son of man will settle into a deep blue funk, stop taking his Xanex and send us another AIDs plague or Hurricane Sandy or shit.

    Please, please, everyone…Pay some attention to Holy Christ Almighty before he gives all of you flaming god herpes.

    Oh, and God wants you to send me some money. Seriously, he does. He whispered it to me on the secret god batphone. I might put it on a billboard or a bumper sticker, but really: god wants you to say merry christmas and send me some money.

  25. AlfaCowboy on December 10th, 2012
  26. Wow. Some sweet Christian with too much money did something they thought was nice and you all turned it into a flame war over god. You guys suck.

  27. wtf on December 25th, 2012
