Merry Christmas to My Christian Readers & Friends

By Debbie Schlussel

To all of my Christian Readers & Friends, I wish you a very joyous and merry Christmas, full of family, good food, and fun.  Enjoy your holiday.

Even though I believe very strongly in my own religion, I am thankful that, for now, America’s strong Christian tradition remains because it means that I will be able to practice my religion freely, G-d willing.  As I’ve said so many times before, even though I do not believe in Christ, I do believe that America has resisted becoming a Muslim nation the way most of Europe has become and will ultimately be, because it has a strong Christian backbone and heritage.  Even though Jews were an active part of every step of American history, from it’s founding to all of its battles (we fought in every one, including the Revolutionary War–American history is inextricably part of Jewish history and vice versa), and America is really a Judeo-Christian country, for all intents and purposes, it is a Christian nation.

So long as we are a Christian nation–which continues to be based on its Judeo-Christian roots–and haven’t fallen to Islam in the way Europe has, I will be safe to be a Jew.  Europeans have lost most vestiges of the Christian faith.  Many Europeans are atheists a/k/a future Muslims.  And for these reasons, Islam is strong and growing there.  Sadly, we are only a few decades behind Europe, as more and more Americans become less involved with their Christian faith and more concerned with the Kardashians.

About 75% of Americans are still Christians.  While some try to erase references to Christmas in America–whether in commerce or in education, whether in Hollywood or in trying to decimate Nativity scenes at the local city hall lawn–I am not among them. I do not share your religion nor some of your religious beliefs, but I celebrate that you celebrate.  Because the day that Ramadan or Eid Al-Fitr or Eid Al-Adha is a national holiday is the end of days.  At least, it’s the end of days for me to be able to live in peace.  And, sadly, we are heading there.

Even Christian America hasn’t had the necessary resistance to Islamic immigration that we need and the fight against Muslims’ refusal to be absorbed in American culture that is required to preserve our freedoms and our American way of life.  In that, many churches and Christian organizations have failed.  They have maintained their status quo, but aren’t working on sustenance for future generations.  That’s something to think about as you marvel over your Christmas tree and open your presents.  Will your great-grand-children and their children be able to do the same?  Will their great-grandchildren be forced to say Midnight Mass in a basement hiding from the Mukhabarat (“Secret Police) and Mutaween (“Muslim religious police)?  You are celebrating the birth of Christ, tomorrow, but in future tomorrows, our progeny may all be forced to “celebrate” Ramadan and the Eids because we did not do enough to stop from becoming Eurabia, American Annex.

Regardless, for me for right now, a strong Christian America is a strong America where religious Jews can celebrate our Sabbath as you celebrate your Christmas, tomorrow.

I wish you a wonderful holiday, full of joy, family and loved ones, friends, good health, sustenance, warmth, and shelter.  And even though I do not celebrate your holiday, I appreciate the gift you give me every day:  your readership (and comments and tips, too).  And your support.  Thank you and, again, Merry Christmas.

Thank You Debbie and you have a Blessed Sabbath!

Thank you, Debbie, and may G-d bless you and keep you…

The Christian World may come down to America. Its all a matter of demography. With the Left bent on eradicating Christmas, its really a war upon America’s foundations. The very people who have lived off the legacy of Judeo-Christian civilization, individual conscience, the rule of law, reverence for human life and freedom, leftists and secular Jews, hate it the most. If its gone, what will take it place would be a new Dark Age that would never end.

Let’s hope future generations of American Christians are brought up not to take Christmas or their faith for granted.

I am Catholic and had a Jewish girlfriend. Before knowing her, other than superficially, I have never known any Jewish people. I observed that there is very little if any difference between Jews and Christians about what really matters, that is our moral values and how god wants us to live our lives. Maybe that is why many people say that our laws are based on Judeo/Christian based values.

Now, on the humorous side, I used to tell my my girlfriend that Christians are nothing more than Jews with an advanced degree. That is, after Christians are done learning the Old Testament they have to learn the New Testament. :-)

Judeo/Christian Guy on December 24, 2010 at 5:36 pm

From this Christian – Bless you, Debbie.

Road Warrior on December 24, 2010 at 6:09 pm

You’re site is a gift that gives so much information, entertainment, humor, and downright joy all year.
Thank you, and have a Blessed Sabbath!

CornCoLeo on December 24, 2010 at 8:08 pm

Thank you for your vigilance and your kind holiday wishes. I wish more Jews would appreciate the positive aspects of living in a largely Christian culture before it dwindles away. If that time should arrive, I fear we will all be living in ever greater terror. We need to stick up for each other, especially against the growing influence of Muslim culture.

Ken Boyer on December 24, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Due to infiltration of the Catholic
Church by Stalinist Russia and the
Horse poop from Second Vatican Council
And Islamic garbage.
I consider that we are headed to some
Of our last Christmases ever as a nation
If we do not wake up.

Patrick on December 24, 2010 at 9:00 pm

Debbie, from a god-fearing christian (who’s a none churchgoer) and a spiritual man, merry christmas to you and I’m looking forward for more of your articles in the last number of days for this calendar year and looking for your articles in 2011.

    Sen R.

    You said:

    “A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

    I somewhat disagree with you.

    A nation needs no boundaries. Countries do. For example, Poland many times through the ages was not even a country but always was a nation.

    Just me.

    Just Me on December 25, 2010 at 3:14 pm

Thank you, Debbie! A blessed Sabbath for you. Enjoy the holiday weekend.

Bobby'sBrain on December 24, 2010 at 11:23 pm

Thank you Debbie, Merry Christmas to all of you. I love you guys! All the best for everyone this New Year.

sharon on December 24, 2010 at 11:37 pm

Even your Christmas greetings contain hate against Muslims. Just be a nice person for one day.

    Hey muzzie “MIKE”

    Merry CHRISTMAS and blow it out your muzzie ass!!

    Hooo rah!

    As goes Israel, so goes the World... on December 27, 2010 at 2:17 pm

Merry Christmas to you. I appreciate your respect of Christianity just I respect Judaism.

Just Me on December 25, 2010 at 3:30 am

    CORRECTION: Merry Christmas to you. I appreciate your respect of Christianity just as I respect Judaism.

    Just Me on December 25, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Debbie,

Wishing you a Happy Holiday and a Happy New year.

chuck on December 25, 2010 at 7:09 am

Thank you. It is appreciated.

worry01 on December 25, 2010 at 8:17 am

Thank you Debbie. May you and yours have the LORD’S blessings in the coming year.

Even though I list myself as agnostic, I’d rather live free in a Xtian society than as a slavish automaton in a fascist Muslim society.

We can all thank Emperor Theodosius for organizing a faith based on all the beat that Judaism, pantheism, Gnosticism and the cult of Mithras had to offer. Like the thousand Muhammads who hammered out Islam (and the unreadable Koran), the Roman emperor wanted to unite a diverse group of people under the banner. Since politics had proven itself to be ineffective, religion was chosen. The rest is, well, history.

Islam still has to experience the cataclysms brought on by the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and secularism – all by-products of Theodosius’s great experiment. Maybe it will, though not in our lifetime, because each of its diverse sects claims its own Messiah who wants everyone to be Muslim for one reason: power.

If Christ had said “Love thy neighbour” while wielding a blooded sword, maybe more people would be Christian, but that’s just me.

In the meantime, to my fellow Xtians, Merry Christmas!

To my Jewish bretheren, Shabbat Shalom!

To Ian Fisher, muslims don’t believe or worship jesus you moron, they worship “allah” (that’s their god). You seem to don’t understand whats happening around you, Debbie is bashing “RADICAL ISLAM”, I hope understand what I wrote or is that too confusing for you to understand Ian Fisher? And I believe it’s you who’s spreading hate on this site, by you calling Debbie every word under the sun for pointing out and exposing islamofascism. You are no different than Neville Chamberlain from the 1930s when he appeased and apologized for Adolph Hitler & his National Socialist (Nazism for uneducated and illiterate haters out there), what your doing is apologizing for radical islam by making believe they don’t exist. As Ms. Schlussel say to you gullible people who post here and not know what your talking about, “WAKE THE HELL UP”! You need to be punched in the face (no I am NOT threating you with violence) Ian Fisher so you can see reality for once instead of living in your own BS utopia bubble.

“A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on December 25, 2010 at 2:17 pm

As per the above post, the 2nd para should’ve read: “We can all thank Emperor Theodosius for organizing a faith based on all the BEST that Judaism, pantheism, Gnosticism and the cult of Mithras had to offer.”

Don’t overdo the cranberry sauce!

The Reverend Jacques on December 25, 2010 at 2:24 pm

We very well may be the last or close to the last generation of Americans who are free to worship however they choose; Christians, Jews, Buddhists or whatever. But for every moronic responder like Ian Fisher @0706 hours who takes the time to put his dim witted screed to paper there are 100 others who are thinking the same way. It’s people like Ian Fisher who have no real concept of Islam, no understanding of what it will mean for a non Muslim to live under Sharia law and is gobbling up the Muslim propaganda about it’s “religion of peace” while totally ignoring the central fact that while not all Muslims are terrorists it certainly appears that all the terrorists have been Muslims. And don’t try to feed me any Timothy McVeigh crap he was a one time hysterical and delusional loser whose end game didn’t include converting the entire world to his religion of choice.

kenny komodo on December 25, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Kenny Komodo, I believe Timothy McVeigh was either an atheist or agnostic, but NOT a christian. And your right, McVeigh didn’t try to convert anyone into either atheistism or agnosticism, he blew up those buildings in Oklahoma because he was a sorry loser who probably didn’t have any friends or his family no longer communicated with him before he died?

“A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on December 25, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    McVeigh did one thing right: HE TOOK HIS DEATH PENALTY STRAIGHT UP! He now screams for eternity among the rapists, murders, and thieves with whom he resides…

    As goes Israel, so goes the World... on December 27, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Too right, Debbie!

Time to do the traditional: eat chinese food and see a movie!

Occam's Tool on December 25, 2010 at 4:11 pm

Shavuah tov Debbie. Beautifully put and something to share. Thank you.

Naomi Romm on December 25, 2010 at 7:08 pm

Thanks Debbie and God bless you for giving me hope again!!

Tony on December 26, 2010 at 12:04 pm

Debbie,

The Jewish people have also fought in America’s first war –
“The French and Indian War” which Amerindians and also my
ancestors took part in. We fought side by side to oust the
French. And considering how France turned out, we were
on the right side.

Pamela on December 26, 2010 at 5:14 pm

Peace be with you.

Enjoy. Amen.

The Reverend Jacques on December 27, 2010 at 11:34 pm

Great comments you made on Christmas, a classic. Thanks and hopes for a great holiday for you and an even better 2011. You have one of the best websites – I don’t see how you have time to practice law but I appreciate your work. You must write with both hands. I remember hearing your radio interviews with Atlanta’s Tom Hughes and reading you on those other websites. It zips by, doesn’t it.

MM from Georgia on December 28, 2010 at 3:38 am

Thank’ye Kind’ly Mi’Lady. And please keep up your work here on this site, gives me something to read every day that isn’t kool-aid filtered.

Paul Siegfried on December 28, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Debbie doesn’t bash radical Islam, she bashes Islam, period! And very rightly too! After all, it’s in the original Qur’an to hate Jews, Pagans, Christians and other infidels. All the stuff that comes out of Hamas, Hizbullah, Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia, Somalia et al are right there in the Qur’an & Sunnah.

It’s okay to admit one is anti-Islamic, and w/ it, anti-Muslim. The ones who ain’t are either ignoramuses or downright enemies.

Infidel Pride on December 28, 2010 at 10:56 pm

Wish you all my friends Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year

Love you all
