Personally I do find it a little hypocritical he's celebrating something he doesn't believe in.


Well, each to their own I don't find it hypocritical, I live in Turkey now and respect and acknowledge their religious holidays, for me, it's just about
respect.

Why? Muslims can't take part in the zenith of commercialism or spending time with family?

Amazing how immigrants are expected to integrate with the local culture, then when they do, they get criticized anyway. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Exactly.

Has nothing to do with religion for me.

He's not getting involved in the religious aspect.

Like many millions of others he's just using the occasion to have a bit of fun and happiness.

Something puritan religious types don't approve of at the best of times.

Yep.

Modern day Christimas if nothing else, is more about Santa and presents, family time, Snowmen, elves, Roast dinner, Mulled wine and loved ones, Christmas songs and censoring the Pogues and anything else that's non PC, Scrooge and disney movies.

Imagine how boring and unfestive it would be to not have Christmas in the dead of Winter in a miserable December.

Wow. What a pair of idiots.

There are almost 650,000 people in Tennessee with a permit to carry a firearm, and these clowns think it might be a great laugh to carry out a fake armed robbery on people.

The measures seem fair enough to me.

The rest of us have been locked up. They thought they could get away from it by going on holiday to countries with less restrictive rules. Now they're back let them quarantine.

10 years in prison for lying though? The Stasi would be proud.

The range is £10,000 fine to 10 years in prison.

If you want to discourage people from doing something you have to have a deterrent. That high end of the punishment scale provides that.
