Should Parks Have Christmas Theming?

Sunday, December 2, 2001 1:24 PM
There is something that bothers me about some parks. Some parks, like HolidayWorld, have areas themed after Christmas. This bothers me because Christmas is set aside to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. This is wrong because after reading the Bible, I have determined that Christianity is an evil religion. Why is it evil you may ask? It is evil because it says in the Bible that it is okay to kill another human being. That's right, the Bible says it is okay for one person to kill another person. Sure, the Bible says it is a sin to kill a person, but the Bible also says if you ask God to forgive you, God will forgive your sins. That translates into "if you murder someone and then ask God to forgive you then it is okay. I cannot and will not accept a religion like this. I know this may offend many of you, but I do not forsee myself going to parks like Holiday World(which I went to twice before I found out that Christianity was an evil religion), Santa's Village, Santa's Land or any other park that is based on the Christmas holiday in the future. This post may be taken the wrong way from some of you people, but it is very much on topic because it is about parks doing something that I disagree with. I enjoy the woodies at Holiday World, but I will not go back there because of the Christmas theming. I think any theming based on a holiday that is held for an evil religion could hurt the wholesome image that amusement parks are known for.

A religion based on forgiveness evil?!?! Interesting assesment.

Anyway, the "Christ" has been so far drained out of Christmas in this country's celebrations that i dont really think there is a conflict there.

--who notes that "All Hallow's Eve" (Halloween) is also a holiday rooted in the Christain tradition

Well, last time I checked, Holiday World is a private enterprise.  If you are offeneded by it, don't go there. They won't miss you.  You're better off just sitting in your high and mighty political correctness anyways.

That's some seriously twisted logic. I'm 99 percent sure that whoever wrote this is a jokester, but if you're really serious, God help you.

Wait a minute. Doesn't the bible say that God will forgive you only if you are "truely" sorry for your sins?

yeah, you have to be sorry and repent meaning you have to turn away from what you did and become good. thats really the simplest way of putting it. as for the first amendment, well most of our founding fathers were christian there were some exceptions but you live in an evil nation! better move to canada or cuba perhaps.

I was REAALY hoping this would drop to page-2 land, or be closed, since it really *seems* to be an invitation to a flame war/off-topic discussion of EPIC, even...biblical...proportions.  I kill myself sometimes, is THAT a sin?  C'mon folks, this is a COASTER board....(for God's sake)...
