Sorry I just had too. Its lonesome here waiting for family to arrive.
I'm working. People gotta get paid or it's torches and pitchforks.
We should all take a moment to thank President Trump for the ability to say "Merry Christmas." All those libtards who like to acknowledge other, lesser cultures can go suck a dick.
Merry Christmas! #MAGA
So am I. Hence, WF.
Today is my normal day off.
I imagine Christians all over the nation rejoicing in song and thanking God for President Donald Trump. And then I vomit.
I submit that one of the biggest reasons for the success of Christianity is the persecution complex baked into it from the beginning.
Begun, the Culture Wars have.
Merry Christmas everyone!
And Happy Holidays!
December 25th is just another working day in China, but my otherwise ruthless, greedy employer was good enough to give me the day off.
Like Scrooge begrudgingly giving Cratchit half a day.
So I went to Hong Kong where Christmas is celebrated properly, got myself a proper turkey dinner, met some lady friends.
Overall it's been a solid holiday.
OTOH, you don't have to deal with ypur wife nagging you about going all out for Christmas this year, so there's that.
No dice. She started with that before Thanksgiving.
I'm guessing @Dayton3 didnt get a new foot for Christmas?
One of the great Mysteries.
I know you probably meant that in a lighthearted way, but that's actually Jehovah's Witness theology. They believe that God the Father created Jesus and then Jesus created everything else.
As the Beatles said "very strange".
Not human Jesus. That still comes later. And it's not just the Witnesses that believe that, gnosticism in various strands agrees and so do some hints in Augustine and Aquinas.
Sorry I wasn't here.
Family stuff, then watched Lego Batman bonus features, until my brains melted out of my ears, then took a big nap.
....then woke up having missed most of the Dr. Who Christmas special.
Caught the regeneration, anyway.
OMG DID YOU HEAR THE NEW DR WHO IS A GIRL UGH PC POLICE STRIKE AGAIN
I think Mormons believe there was a kind of bidding war between Jesus and Lucifer for the contract. IIRC, Lucifer wanted his name on the whole thing, whereas Jesus was prepared to build it with Jehovah's logo attached. God went with the franchise option, and the rest is history, right up to Trump taking all of their names off and rebranding the universe with his name, in golden letters.
I heard god is selling the universe to Disney.
Oh good. They have a nice track record recently at making discredited properties palatable again. Perhaps they can retcon that whole holocaust debacle. Yes, sure, dark and gritty and all, but once you have gone there, there isn't really much else you can do, is there?
