I just want to point out that I did start this in 2013 in response to Bill O’Reilly’s War on Christmas, but it is not the War on Christmas Bill O’Reilly was trying to create; I created it not for Atheists, but for people who have more than 1 God (Polytheists). If you Google “Waging a Real” it will suggest “Waging a Real War on Christmas” because over 10,000 people searched it the first month I created it. This is real, and we are really fixing the way people view Christmas.
Christmas is coming, so I want to explain some History for everyone. You have probably wondered in your life at some point “What does Santa and a Tree have to do with Christmas?” and if you decided it had nothing to do with Christmas, you were right. And Random, but have you noticed that no one in Whoville is Christian? They are more of a Christmas based faith, while the Grinch is like someone coming to tell everyone that it’s about Jesus, not about gift giving. Early American Christians banned Christmas because it is Pagan.
New International Version (NIV)
God and Idols
10 Hear what the Lord says to you, people of Israel. 2 This is what the Lord says:
“Do not learn the ways of the nations
or be terrified by signs in the heavens,
though the nations are terrified by them.
3 For the practices of the peoples are worthless;
they cut a tree out of the forest,
and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
4 They adorn it with silver and gold;
they fasten it with hammer and nails
so it will not totter.
5 Like a scarecrow in a cucumber field,
their idols cannot speak;
they must be carried
because they cannot walk.
Do not fear them;
they can do no harm
nor can they do any good.”
Christmas comes from Ancient Rome, and the Holy Roman Empire that came out of the Roman Empire after Constantine. Before Christianity, all Religions were like Hinduism. The Egyptian Religion, the Greek Religion, etc, they were all like Hinduism. Seasons, Nature, etc. And during that time there were various groups, for example there were the Dionysus Worshipers, who had the Dionysus Mysteries (Wine related initiations and ceremonies); there was the group that Worshiped Serapis in Rome and Egypt, and that group wrote the book “Aegyptiaca” which is where the word “Dynasty” comes from.
But the group that ran the Roman Empire was the Mithras Cult. They Worshiped Mithras (The same as the Hindu Mitra, who is God of Contracts and Promises), who wore a Liberty Cap (now the symbol of Republicanism), and a Red Cape, and he had a “J” shaped knife, and he killed bulls. And they would slaughter a bull, and in a hole under a grill that the bull stood on, and they would get soaked in the bulls blood. This is why many Muslim nations have Christmas Colors for flags (look up Saudi Arabia, and Oman, and Kurdistan, etc). You may notice Santa is also wearing a Liberty Cap, with a cotton ball on top. When Caesar was killed, the Assassins (Brutus, etc) held up a Liberty Cap on a Pole, and that symbol became known as a “Liberty Pole”,
This is also where Bullfighting comes from.
