The Xmas Thread: Discussions on secular/pagan practices

This thread is for the discussion of secular/pagan Xmas problems and thoughts. I used Xmas to differentiate this thread form the Christmas thread. To discuss the birth of Jesus please use the Christmas Thread.

Inaccurate statement of history

Actually, that supposed teaching, as written by EG White and promoted by the denomination that credits her with so much of their thinking, has never been taught by the RC Church. Nor does RC official literature equate worship on Sunday with keeping the Sabbath, which is a day of rest. You might have to pick on Baptists, if you want to go down that road. Go to the forum thread on Seventh Day Adventist teachings for a discussion of it. Jeff, who did a great job of handling the discussion from the SDA viewpoint, was very thorough.

Further, this is a thread on Christmas issues, not the Sabbath/Sunday question.
