Where does it stop?

22 Dec

You might disagree with me, but I think this is just sickening. Jonathan just showed it to me. I can’t believe that we can’t have one day when people can do no shopping. It’s so sad that they reckon 4 million in the UK will be shopping online on Christmas day, spending up to £56 million,  compared to 2.6 million attending church. How far is it going to go? Christ is really being taken out of Christmas now. In fact, it might as well be called “Let’s get ourselves into debt just to please consumerism” day. Sadly, at the end of the day, most don’t give a hoot that we are celebrating Jesus coming into the world at Christmas. It’s makes me very upset, but it’s the truth.

    Well, Lynn, there is that perspective … but then there is the perspective that there are lots of people that do not celebrate Christ’s Mass, so why shouldn’t they be allowed to shop? Those who are not Christian shouldn’t be penalized for our religious beliefs, should they?

    I don’t think there are any good answers … but I wonder if we should place restrictions on people based upon our religious beliefs … especially restrictions that are sanctioned by the state.

    That’s very true Sonja. There are no good answers. In some way I guess it’s already gone too far, and most just celebrate Santa coming etc. It still irritates me though!
