    Ah yes, Christmas trees and gifts, the most christian of traditions. Who could forget the iconic parts of the Bible where Jesus suddenly explained the advent of Capitalism and how we should use this one day for even more Capitalism. Kinda lazy of those early christians to wait about 1600 years before they started decorating trees just like the Bible always said to - no wonder God fucked them over so much in the past.

    This isn’t murdering by words, and it’s probably the least convincing response possible. A good response would be to point out the origin of the date of Christmas and what Christmas trees originally meant, which has fuckall to do with Christ as they are pagan in origin.

      The impression I get from this sort of screenshot is that people on Twitter are mean spirited and kinda dumb

        That’s a pretty good summary of the platform honestly. You’re just missing how everyone thinks they’re a novel genius of sorts

      Agreed. Better to point out that is was not originally a Christian holiday, and is now more of a consumerist one.

      I always love when people downvote an objective truth (your comment in this case) that has no sign of a weird agenda or anything bad about it, simply because they feel personally attacked because they liked something that is easily criticized
