    I am interested to know more about your findings on the things borrowed by Christianity from various religious practices of pagan cultures. Dear Allan Poing (Friday, 05 August), your other comment on genocide can be illustrated more.

    You stole the celebration of the tree worship from pagan cultures in Europe...that is the true meaning of Christmas, like many other pagan rituals you changed the meaning of. You persecuted shamans and called them witches and still do so. How many centuries has it taken to apologise and admit your genocides of indigenous peoples around the world?

    The true meaning of Christmas is proving innocence of mother Mary out of the blame thrown on that she had committed the sin worthy of stone to death by Jews of that time. It is the time when divine interference occurred to protect a women and her baby and which is celebrated world wide. But unfortunately there is no protection in the modern days….. and the babies are killed by its own father and mother……….

    There's no festival or celebration in Christianity called Christmas. The birth of Jesus was in early aAtumn (September) in the lunar calendar. What is Christmas is a paganist and materialist event based on FALSEHOOD. If anyone needs proof, research Luke 1:13, 1:24 and 36 Zakarayas and his priestly duties.

    It's that silly season again. I'm enjoying Christmas in the land of Oz. Just returned from sunny SL where everyone is leaving and I could have easily found another sugar baby desperately wanting to get out of this miserable hole. Sometimes I want to cry when I see what has happened to my motherland. Merry Christmas.

    Merry Christmas and now it's almost new year. This article is more than 3 years old. It's time to archive this article and create space for something more worthwhile.
