Religious claptrap

Best Blogger Tips

Saturday 27 December 2008

The internet is wonderful for the way in which a topic like Christmas and the traditions of Christmas can be discussed by religious and secular fruitcakes alike (I’ll let you decide from my recent series on Christmas myths which category I fall into). But apart from the general discussion, I also love the debate, such as when newspapers or websites have forums in which the public can comment or criticise, question or query. I love following the threads between different people, including the tolerance displayed by some, and the bickering engaged in by others. However most of all I love the sarcasm and the silliness – here is one of my favourite comments from a forum which had a few hundred comments arguing for and against the idea of Christmas:

“Please put an end to all this religious claptrap. This really is not a good time for it. It's Christmas for gods' sake!”
