Keep Christ Out Of Christmas?

PIEDMONT (Worthy News)-- Not surprisingly, atheists were angered by an Alabama town's "Keep Christ In Christmas" theme for its annual Christmas parade, according to The Inquisitr News.

Although Piedmont wanted to remind everyone about the reason for the season, the town's theme was opposed by the secular Freedom From Religion Foundation. On Nov. 24, the Wisconsin-based atheists reportedly sent a letter to Piedmont officials requesting the theme of the parade be changed because it wasn't appropriate for a secular celebration.

But Piedmont Mayor Bill Baker disagreed.

"It was a great theme," he said. "It's a small town. It's a small Christmas parade. We didn't think there would be any problems at all."

However, an attorney representing the city agreed with FFRF. But though the parade's coordinators were forced to change its theme, that didn't stop Piedmont's citizens from making their beliefs known.

"This anti-religious group that started all this stuff, I really believe this has backfired on them," Baker said. "What has happened now is the city of Piedmont -- great city to live in, great people -- has rallied. They have caused our parade to be bigger and better with more emphasis placed on Christianity. There's people in there wearing T-shirts that are of a religious nature. It just went crazy, out of sight, in a positive way."

  1. PRAISE GOD... I am so happy to here that Christians are taking a stand for JESUS. There would be no Christmas without Christ. No atheist should even participate in any Christmas events at all, for Christmas is a Christian holiday, therefore you have no right to voice your opinion. Christmas is about the love of God (even for you) as God sent his child into this world, Jesus Christ was born. Jesus has come to forgive mankind of sin and to save man kind from the soon tribulation. Christmas brings hope and joy, a time of love and peace that fills hearts everywhere (apparently to everyone except the atheists) and brings loved ones, friends and strangers together. God has made this possible through giving us Jesus Christ, this is a celebration that God ordained and no man (atheists or any one else) CAN NOT STOP ANYTHING IN WHICH GOD ORDAINED. Listen all atheist, You want a holiday for yourselves, then create one ( oh yes that's right, you don't believe in anything, so there fore you cant bring any hope or joy through a holiday.) All mankind has only two choices: Deuteronomy 30:19-20 I call on heaven and earth as witnesses today that I have offered you life or death, blessings or curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants will live. (20) Love the LORD your God, obey him, and be loyal to him. This will be your way of life, and it will mean a long life for you in the land that the LORD swore to give to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
    That's right eternal life through Jesus Christ :John 14:6 Jesus answered him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one goes to the Father except through me. Or eternal damnation and death by the rejection of Jesus Christ:Matthew 25:31-33 "When the Son of Man comes as King and all the angels with him, he will sit on his royal throne, (32) and the people of all the nations will be gathered before him. Then he will divide them into two groups, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. (33) He will put the righteous people at his right and the others at his left.
    Matthew 25:46 These, then, will be sent off to eternal punishment, but the righteous will go to eternal life."
    You have right now to make your choice, what will you chose, God or Satan?

  2. the term "atheist" is that not people that do not believe that God is real at all ? if so then what are they fighting God for if he does not even be ? they must have a hidden agenda , because their fighting proves he is real to them . antichrist may be a more correct term for them .
