For the second year in Lodi, a conservative Christian organization is engaging in an intensive campaign to "bring the Christ back into Christmas."

Ken Owen, director of Lodi-based Christian Community Concerns, asked the Lodi City Council on Wednesday to use Christmas in their greetings instead of a more generic holiday greeting. Owen will make the same request at Tuesday's Lodi Unified School District board meeting.

    Great idea, nylodian. Hug the people you love and share some love with the people you do not know or those you cannot stand. Share a smile, and really mean it.

    so the factual/historical resurrection of Christ is the basis for which one can trust the claims of Christ. but thats only the foundation. how about thousands of years of God solidifying who he is thru history. like i said, how much proof do you want? how about 6,000 years +/-. life of Jesus Christ was foretold (and emphatically proven) by a trusthworthy God, who has painstakingly put his undeniable "mark" on his creation, and recorded it.

    Heaven forbid if we cut down a Christmas tree to celebrate the birth of Christ, Richard Mc will find something out of the bible to say why it's wrong. How about Thanksgiving, New Year's, and Hanukkah? I'm sure he'll find more verses to back up why those holidays are wrong too...Does he even practice what he preaches? Hmmm...

    Well, RealFacts, yes, I deal in absolute accuracy - you may call it petty. My line of work does not permit fuzzy semantics and, because I deal in black and white, hazy circular logic like yours begs clarification. Please please please present your proof to the waiting world that Jesus was [who you claim] he claimed to be. I, on the other hand, am not to be expected to prove a negative.

    richard mcintyre: i am sure that *we* could go downtown and find someone who claims to be "god". only one person throughout history has EVER made good on that claim. Jesus Christ raising HIMSELF from the dead solidified that fact. and since he is still alive, he can back up that claim HIMSELF. but only to ones that are willing. others who don't "want to", will find excuses "not to". everyone regardless will stand before him, just as he claimed.
