The reason for season

I totally agree with Bill O'Reilly and his column. I am sick and tired of trying to be politically correct. Jesus is the reason for the season, and retailers need to understand this.

I don't want to hear a generic happy holidays. I am proud of Christ and the meaning of Christmas. Christmas is all about humility and love. Simply put without Christ there is no reason to celebrate. Like it or Lump it!

Everybody is so afraid of offending, Bah Humbug!

Boycott stores that ban Christmas

I'd like to see Cal Thomas run for president with Bill O'Reilly as his VP. That'd be a dream duo for me. No spin. Just honest, face the facts answers to current problems.

As for the problem of stores that refuse to acknowledge Christmas because they do not want to offend anyone (except us Christians), my solution is to simply shop at other stores or on eBay. I refuse to shop at Target, Sears, Wal-Mart or Best Buy. I lose out on some good deals, no doubt, but they lose out as well. If they lose enough business, maybe they will wake up and realize that we celebrate Christmas because of Christ! If they are opposed to celebrating the arrival and teachings of the son of God, by all means let's rename Martin Luther King Day and any other day that celebrates great people. Do they have the gall to take on that challenge or will political correctness yank their chain again?

All Christians should boycott these stores until they feel the sting of empty registers. Merry Christmas to all. God bless ya!

Don't give in

Gwinnett Daily Post - I am in complete agreement with the remarks of Bill O'Reilly in your paper regarding the use of the Christmas greeting. We have given in to the minority on too many things trying to be politically correct.

Support Christmas

God has blessed every American just by allowing them to be born here. Too many people take it for granted and will sit back and say nothing about the very issue that is most important to this country. God is real. The secular humanist will learn that too late.

My family will not shop at any store that has banned the word Christmas. My prayer is that the Christians in this country will speak up in way that will show their support for the God that is blessing them today.

Stone Mountain Believe in Christmas

I am just a normal citizen, I love Christmas, I love shopping, but I don't like what is going on regarding Wal-Mart, Kmart, etc. and their present crazy advertising and nondecorating of their stores.

How come their executives are having this done to us? What gives them the right to decide to do this? This is very scary and I don't like it. Up until this year they didn't feel this way about Christmas - who changed their minds and who controls them? It just doesn't make sense. We love Christmas and we believe in what it stands for - why do they think they can downgrade this wonderful holiday. It just makes me so mad what they are doing, and I don't think it is fair to any of us who are great Americans, wonderful Christians and are all trying to live a good life and I totally agree what Bill O'Reilly has to say.
