That word doesn't mean what you think it does.

There are so many people in glass houses for you to throw rocks on that claim...
And without surprise, instead of explaining how the actual analogy is flawed, you completely rewrite the entire thing and ignore the context.

It's an analogy Franc.
I'm not saying you have that position at all. I'm trying to compare what you are saying to a similar topic to show the type of thought process you are putting out there.

Your rewrite above has no intelligible comparison to the actual original situation.

And here you are in your glass house!

Remember what you said at the start of this thread?
Why do you insist on telling me what I believe so you can make an argument from it?
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU JUST DID...
Do you get that?

It is NOT about "Christendom".
It's about separation of church and state.
And the "Happy Holidays" thing has been explained so many times and ignored so many times it isn't even funny. The below analogy is one of the best on the issue...
NOBODY WANTS TO ADDRESS THAT COMPARISON.
