Bertrand Russell said: “Conventional people are roused to fury by any departure from convention, largely because they regard such departures as criticisms of themselves.” This movie demonstrates the surreal levels of narcissistic injury and entitlement these people have, and how bitterly they resent anyone who doesn’t believe as they do. It looks like it was written by a fan of “Persecution” by David Limbaugh (brother of Rush), a novel about a U.S. where Christianity is illegal. What’s even more incredible is how these same people never hesitate to accuse anyone who isn’t a white straight Christian male of “playing the… Read more »

You summed it up quite well, that is the tyranny of the bland and privileged.

I also wanted to add, the most absurd part of this farce is when the kids don’t know the “real” story of Christmas, although we can assume from context that they all grew up in Christian households…so why didn’t their family or church teach them the proper story? Is it really the school drama club’s responsibility?

One more thing to add to that on the school play:

How utterly lacking in imagination and insular to imagine the “liberalized” version of the Christmas play would just take the Nativity story and replace biblical elements with silly sci-fi substitutes at a 1:1 ratio.

That really shows you how these people think.

Snorgatch deserves the Slow Clap for eloquence making a point, not pharma-biker-mayor-grandpa. 😉

Actually, I am with the Kids, they need to make up a far more creative name than “Operation: Christmas” ……. “Operation: Blank so and so” has been done a million times to death. That is just one of those things you do when you need a good Project name but you have writer’s block and the deadline is tomorrow.

6:37-6:41 Those people were called “puritans!” Seriously, the first people to found some vision of Christendom in this country regarded Christmas as reaped up in paganism and Catholicism!

“…wrapped up in paganism and Catholicism!”

The Puritans thought dancing was satanic. They’d probably be more appalled that the town wants to celebrate Christmas more than anything. Oh, the irony.

That would involve the writers of this movie knowing some actual history, as opposed to having only fuzzy romanticized notions of it based on popular myths and cartoons. But that would require LEARNING stuff, and that would be work. Easier to just believe the fables you learned as a child, and to wax nostalgic in middle-age for a past that never really existed.

True that. After all, Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God was all about the War on Christmas…is what I imagine the producers of this movie would have interpreted that classic sermon as.

Thank you for showing the State House and the radio station in your car. ^_^ A nice dose of reality. I’m not Christian and don’t celebrate it, but I have no problem with some bright pagan lights in the darkest of seasons and encouragement of good cheer and thinking of the good in life.

There are two major Christian Radio stations where I live that would air both the secular “Frosty The Snowman/Rudolph The Red-Nose Reindeer/White Christmas” music and the Religious “Little Town O Bethlehem/Silent Night/We Three Kings” music both on at the same time. And I never heard any Christians call in and complain about the Secular Christmas songs they would play on there. Also, I have met most Christians who think “Grandma Got Ran Over By A Reindeer” is very amusing and fun. That guy was just being a sour puss to complain about how “Christmas Music WAS BETTER IN MY DAY!”

0:29- You’re a mean one, Mr. Snob. 3:20- Let’s just be thankful that the flag on his motorcycle is NOT a Trump/Pence flag, which actually exist; trust me. 9:21- If Tony Stark was in the room, he would immediately mute the TV. Also, no one in there right mind should EVER take Fox News seriously! Why is there such a movie where there’s a town that doesn’t celebrate Christmas anymore? NO ONE ASKED FOR THAT TO BE A THING. Also, does anyone remember that Christopher Lloyd movie about a town that banned Halloween? It’s like that, only stupider. 13:36- Who… Read more »

Technically speaking isn’t a Christmas tree pretty secular? I know it’s only been a little over 100 years since trees as we know them were decorated, but many cultures have used evergreen plants like pine trees as a symbol of life persisting through the harsh winter for millennia, WAY before the Christian religion was founded. By that token Santa Claus and string lights are also secular symbols developed in the past 100 years or so. As long as you don’t put up a manger scene just about every kind of Christmas decoration is totally separation of church and state safe.

For people like the makers of this movie, the concept of a “traditional” Christmas means the kind of Christmas they remember from their own childhoods, no more than 40-50 years ago. They neither know nor care what Christmas was like prior to that.

I used to remember when I was a kid, Christians complaining about Santa Clause bleeding into Christmas or tying into the Christian aspect of Christmas was “War On Christmas”-ish. Now they have become pretty okay with it.

Gotta love the war plot wedged in there. Because if there’s anything Christians love more than Jesus, it’s violence. Well, that and cramming their religion down the throats of everyone around them.

Okay, so, the main thing that bugs me about this movie is…its entire premise. It starts with this melodramatically-said quote about “Freedom” being taken away… NEWS FLASH YOU SILLY FUCKS, not being allowed to oppress others IS NOT OPPRESSION. And yet these types of people _always_ act like it is. And everything is so overexaggerated and just plain made up, to get their point across! “Space aliens” in the Christmas school play? In a DOCTOR WHO EPISODE, sure (actually multiple) but no, I don’t know of any schools actually doing that. …although it would be awesome. And “there is no… Read more »
