Church Language - Holiday Hypocrisy

In the morning, Christian churches all over the world are going to be celebrating the resurrection of Christ. Evangelicals will be no different. What bugs me is that in six months, the same Evangelicals who will be wishing each other a "Happy Easter" on "Easter Sunday" or going to be decrying Halloween as a holiday rooted in ancient paganism. A month after that, they will complain about how corporations have sucked the real meaning -- Jesus -- out of Christmas.

I've tried explaining it to them, but they don't actually listen because they already know in their hearts that they are right.

  1. Wow, that's a great point.

    I actually just interviewed a Druid for an article I'm writing, and he talked about how they had already done all of their egg dyeing for the Spring Equinox. And also, as most people know, the Christmas tree is a pagan tradition as well. But pumpkin carving is inviting the devil in? Wat?

  2. Well, you see, the devil likes pumpkins, and when you carve them you're pretty much making devil doors.
