Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Governor Rick Perry Opens Door to Pagan Holiday Kits on eBay
Governor Rick Perry of Texas has opened the door to “religions expression” in public schools all across the state of Texas.
Rick Perry on Thursday signed a law protecting Christmas and other holiday celebrations in Texas public schools from legal challenges - but also stressed that freedom of religion is not the same thing as freedom from religion.
Most Christians do not know this but Jesus wasn’t really born at Christmas and he didn’t die during Easter either. These were “Pagan Holidays” that were corrupted by Christianity. The Christian leadership has lied to its followers for a long time. The historical record of Jesus is vaguer than most Christians are aware of. Thanks to Governor Rick Perry most American’s might learn a lot more in a very short time now.
How do you think Christians would react to finding out that their entire holiday celebration is a hoax perpetuated by the Church? Jesus wasn’t really born on December 25th at all. Much of the traditions we associate with Christmas and Easter actually came from Pagan legends and folklore.
Some enterprising individual or group could put together a “Pagan Holiday Kit” and sell it on eBay. They could include a book with the background on how the winter solstice was the time of celebration of the Pagan Gods. There is now a whole market for Pagan symbols and posters for the holidays. Paganism can regain its rightful place in the holidays.
Do all the research and do a good job on your Pagan Christmas kit. You will definitely have a market in the state of Texas.
Who knows, it might spread to other states as well.
How do you think this will affect Christian’s celebration of these holidays?
They will probably be a little more “open to” and a lot less arrogant to other beliefs.
Maybe they will look a little deeper at the true origins of their own beliefs before trying to force them on others.
Learn the true significance of December 25th. Watch videos below.
