Jesus: An historical figure, too

We read:
"Another holiday season is upon us and, I can just see the lawsuits materializing against various towns, cities and municipalities over an improper display of a nativity scene.

Of course, they will be driven by various civil liberties organizations such as People for the American Way and the American Civil Liberties Union (both of them misnomers at all levels). The grounds for these lawsuits will be that they represent an unconstitutional endorsement of religion by government. The people behind them are evidently as ignorant of history as they are of the underlying spiritual assumptions behind the principles of this republic....

We enshrine the great figures of our history with statues, paintings, pictures and excerpts of their greatest sayings. Some had religious backgrounds, notably Martin Luther King, Jr., the legitimacy of whose work was enhanced due to his religious training. There have been many others. Across from the United Nations in New York City is the ’swords into plowshares’ quote from the bible carved into a marble edifice on an outside staircase. Religion is central to our entire culture.

Jesus was a religious figure but he was an historical figure as well. He permeates our heritage. Acknowledgment of him is not an endorsement of a religion but a testament to his importance to our society and no one was more important, not George Washington, not Thomas Jefferson, not James Madison. The influence of all the Founding Fathers combined, along with all of the other figures of history, pales next to that of Jesus Christ. He deserves recognition in our nation and our halls of government and perhaps, not limited to Christmas time.

That's true Jon, how these Leftist organizations hide behind patriotic-sounding names to mask their true intent, which is usually the exact opposite of what their names imply.

Tiss the season for the godless cretins to come out of the woodwork and get their 15 minutes. The below link is to a story from (of course) Mexifornia. I'm sure the USMC must be real proud of this scumbag.

Isn't democracy great? It's where one malcontent can over rule the will of tens-of-millions. It's no wonder that our system of government is a total failure. Of course, there will be some here who will say, "that's the point of democracy". But they say that simply because something they believe in hasn't been taken away yet.

Well put.

And the great thing is that we'll never see the same of MuhamMAD, because by its own rules, statues or paintings cannot be made! Woo hoo!!

So the nativity scene is not religious at all but just a reminder of this chap Jesus? Bollocks, says I!

The only reason one displays a nativity scene is that it's a part of the story of the living god whose birthday we celebrate on Christmas. It's religious and it's Christian and that is the whole point about it. Whether one likes it or not or whether it's legal or illegal in any given nation is a different matter but black isn't white even if people claim otherwise.

Nativity scenes obviously aren't about baby Jesus right? Its obviously showing the parents w/ 3 men, donkeys and other barn animals, and the new born member of the church in a hay basket right? That's what I've gotten from it. The only religious thing is showing one of Muhammeds angels amiright?

Atheists have 363 days each year to shove their Godless agenda down our throats, so why is it such a big deal for us Christians to have Christmas and Easter in peace?

When it comes to atheism being "shoved down throats" and religion - which do you really think has the upper hand by far?! Be honest!

I believe the actual assertion being made was Jesus was NOT SOLELY a religious figure but both a religious AND HISTORICAL figure.
