A Tribute to the Works of Lenon Honor
The problem with the “Christian” holidays is that they have their origins in pagan festivals.
It’s kinda hard to take a plagiarists complaints of plagiarism too seriously.,
I’m not complaining about plagiarism, I’m highlighting the fact that Christian holidays (holy days) have lost their true meaning.
What true meaning? The “true” meaning of Easter is a pagan festival celebrating fertility. All those rabbits and eggs etc.
By true meaning, what it is supposed to mean to Christians, not pagans. We already know that a lot that these symbols and rituals are taken from pagan tradition–that was the point of the comic.
Righto so by “true meaning” you mean YOUR meaning, regardless of historic origins etc.
But if the meaning of a festival can change once, it can change again.
Maybe if Christianity had started with something original then they’d have cause for complaint.
However they hijacked a pagan festival and are now complaining about commercialism hijacking it.
Tough – that earlier bit about plagiarism was kind of an analogy 😉
Will you finally get it if tell you that Andy is the one who has it right here?
Your point being…..
Easter has become a very secular recognized and commercialized holiday. It’s pretty spiteful of you to say no one should give candy and presents on that day because they don’t believe in you god. It’s a great day for families to spend together. In fact the bunny and the candy and stuff is all pagan: http://news.discovery.com/history/what-does-easter-bunny-come-have-to-do-easter-120406.html
Christianity adopted a lot of pagan traditions to help it fit in with the various pagan religions. A key example it Christmas trees. Pagans believed they had to maintain the life energy of the forest through the winter so it would come back in the spring, but now it’s part of chirstmas.
You’re right about the pagan traditions and this comic was actually a commentary on what our supposed “Christian” holidays have become.
