Well, you see, sometimes when a Yule and a Saturnalia love each other very much, the son of god is born. :roll_eyes:

That’s… satire right? It has to be. It’s such a monumentally unflattering picture of an already repulsive human shit.

Though he looks even worse when he’s smiling.

And the order of the pictures on the top is… off.

And the childish dick and balls look.

Show me a “culture war” that the American right wing believes they’re being victimised by and I’ll show you an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory. Every time.

Conservatives love them some wars…

Also, as a special Holiday bonus (yeah, I said Holiday! Come at me, bro!), I will repost the Christmas card my very Christian father sent last year. The true meaning of Christmas is… a snowman accepting Christ as their personal savior, obvs.

You’re welcome.

On average 93% of Americans celebrate Christmas.

So who’s that other seven percent? All non-Christian denominations, plus a few Christian sects like Jehovah’s Witnesses and Quakers (some merely “observe” Christmas like any other random church calendar event-- Pentecost or the Annunciation for example.)

And anyway, the real damage to the holiday is being done by rampant consumerism-- you can bet Jesus would not be cool with parents getting into fistfights over the last shoot-em-up video game on the shelf.

FWIW-- whenever a stranger says “Merry Christmas” to me I reply “Happy Hanukkah” even though I’m not Jewish, just to remind them other holidays do exist.

Tucker Carlson, in that picture, has the face of a child who is carrying out a threat to poop in his pants unless you do what he wants.

All holidays matter. You’d think they of all people would understand that.
