Yeah... It is most definitely not derived from paganism, although it did take a lot of elements from it, supposedly to make conversion easier. (Such as paintings of saints having the sun behind their head, which later developed into the halo, Christmas trees and its date, and, of course, Easter bunnies and whatnot.)
Well paganism is celebration of the earth and its beings, soooo... I don't see granny's issue? What a hag. And Easter eggs as well as bunnies just represent fertility within pagan rituals, but Christianity took it over and kept the bunnies and eggs. So you keep up that fertility hunt kids.
Christianity is not derived from paganism. However some supposedly 'Christian' festivals were pagan ones which the Catholic church decided to use for themselves because changing the meaning and keeping the festival was easier than abolishing them and making new ones. Christianity is derived from Judaism, which in turn was again not derived from paganism. Get your facts straight before you start slagging people off.
What I'm saying is that just about every Christian holiday for example Christmas and Easter derives their traditions from paganism. So yes both traditions are religious celebrators and the Christian traditions derived from the pagan traditions. Christianity is one of the newer religions compared to paganism, juidaism, Hinduism, even greek mythology. it's stolen lots of its traditions from other religions one of them being paganism. Do some research and get your facts straight bro.
I agree. Its so stupid how people are so close minded. It makes me sick. You know, I'm a Christian but believe every God boils down to the same God (just different image) and was talking to a guy that said "there is only 1 true God." and starting pretty much saying all others will go to hell. People make me sick...if that is the case, that guy is going to be very lonely if he gets to heaven. Sorry it just reminded me of that. I can't stand people who aren't open to other things just because their religious base is so weak that it will crumble at the slightest temptation. Sorry xD
Thank you. I've been looking for someone with such an opinion. I mean most Christians I know - though not all - believe in Hell and that if you aren't Christian you go there. And they are very kind, generous and happy people. Very welcoming - but I find that hard to swallow. I was told the other day that God isn't pleased with someone who isn't Christian. THAT I cannot understand - even if they weren't"saved" surely He would still be happy when we do something good? :)
Wow I hope you slapped her. She can believe whatever she wants but if she screamed at my child? Oh it would be on like donkey kong! If she is such a dramatic cow why is she still allowed at family functions? I am sure your kids weren't the only ones she scream at, if they were I am so sorry. As I said I would have slapped her into next week.
I completely agree. My first thought when I read this FML was: Oh f*** no. If anyone "screamed" at my daughter or any child, I wouldn't be able to restrain myself. That woman would be in a world of pain....and then banned from ever coming near my child again. Children are easily scarred and traumatized by that kind of thing. I am still angry about this.
This is why I never bring up religion, politics, or conspiracy theories in a conversation. Why are so many in-laws crazy? I'm not married so I've never dealt with it except when my grandmother tried to set my mom up with a guy who just came out of jail for murder while still married to my dad. Wow. What the fuck is wrong with people?
She can be an OCD crazy bitch. She's acts all sweet an innocent but I heard so many stories. She's so nosey, and she "cries" for the littlest things and never accepts something for what it is. My aunt was reading about something today that she knew was a fact and my grandmother said she was wrong. x_x I dont see her that often but when I do, I see something evil in her eyes xD hahaha Maybe I do need to get her checked out.
I would have slapped her into eternity!
Ugh. The amount of people that still think like a 16th century Puritan...
