With the threads on here about annoying Christmas Carols, and the I hate Christmas musings on here, I had to add my own thoughts on this night. If you think it corny, or full of it, please refrain from a response. Keep such thoughts to yourself, thank you.

For those without a home, living on the streets, especially the homeless children of the world, may He bring them warmth and hope this night and all nights. May He protect them from the wraths of cold and storms, and keep them safe.

For those parents who are dealing with the loss of a child this year-either one who has died, or one who has run away or dissapeared, may He bless them and keep them strong.

For the soldiers, sailors airmen of whatever nation, far away from home and loved ones, may He keep in their hearts the love of home and family on this special night.

For those who have left their homes and loved ones, may He put His light in their heart, so that they can find their way back home.

For all of us, believers in Him or not, may He put in our hearts peace, love and joy, thankful for all that is around us.

Have a Merry, joyous and peaceful Christmas.

Alpha 1

Merry Christmas to you too, Alpha 1, from a like-minded old soul here at Southwest Airlines. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Why, when you and others saw fit to state opinions on Muslim extremism on a thread about Ramadan and Eid El Fitr. Which in response to you Alpha 1:

Why not also pray for all of those people who have been killed, injured, hurt in the name of Christianity in the last 12 months.

Totally unnecessary post Scotty. Coming from you, though, I'm not surprised. Practising double standards as usual. Well done. We all wished the Muslims a happy Ramadan and the nasty posts were deleted. Can you not at least show the same RESPECT YOU showed Muslims on that thread, here?

Ridiculous.

Totally unneccesay Marco? I think not.

You all may have wished the Muslims a happy Ramadan, but of course some people just couldn't resist in taking a swipe at the Muslim faith in the same breathe (those posts are still there by the way).

There was no respect shown by some people on TS-IOR's thread, so why should respect be shown on this thread?

And I am not disrespecting Christians on this thread, merely showing how idiotic Alpha 1 seems to be with his "Keep such thoughts to yourself" comment, when he couldn't do the same on another thread.

Anyway, w-h-a-t-e-v-e-r

Yes some people couldn't resist, but aren't you doing the same thing really? You're taking a swipe at the Christian faith, even though it's unnecessary. You may not see it that way, but you are doing the same thing you criticize!

Actually Marco, I am taking a swipe at Alpha 1. Like I said, if he didn't come up with his "Keep your thoughts to yourself", I would have said nothing.

And by the way, prayers aren't going to do diddly for the homeless people. How many of the self-righteous people on these forums have seen a homeless person on the street and given them some change, or heaven forbid, taken them and bought them a meal? Or supplied them with blankets to keep the cold away? Or is it ok to pray for the homeless (if only on one day of the year), yet walk over them for the other 364 days?

Again, w-h-a-t-e-v-e-r

You can't dictate what other people can and cannot say. What Alpha 1 said was very reasonable.

We all try Scotty. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Actually, aviatsiya (in my opinion) is right. Why should we help the poor on Thanksgiving and donate and then pray for them on Christmas, when we don't care on the other 363 days? I mean, yes, we do treat them with more respect on these 2 holidays, but why not treat them better everyday, that way they don't have to live without food and clean water for the rest of the year, for all the change they might get in a week/month , they can go and afford to buy a better piece of clothing from somewhere such as Good Will or some other place and keep warm through the winter and harsher weather.

Yes, we do treat the homeless better on thanksgiving and christmas, but praying is hoping for them, which is nothing wrong, but something else should go along with it, for instance, our family gives all of our unneccessary clothing to Good Will stores or the Salvation Army to help those who need it instead of just throwing it away.

So the next time you see a homeless man, be sure to give him some change, so that way they can put it to use instead of having people pray, but not help them out.

With everything you have, you can pray all you want, but they won't be warmer in the winter, so donate too!

Sadly, Aviatsiya, I think it demonstrates the kind of human being your are. It's egg on your face, my friend, not mine. Congratulations.

I do-to the Salvation Army and the like. I always drop my loose change in their kettles every time I shop during the holidays, and we alway end up taking something-clothing that doesn't fit, or old blankets, down to them each winter as well.

There is a literal homeless industry here in Toronto, where people choose to live on the streets while housing goes unused. They are supported by a veritable army of social workers, lawyers, "poverty" advocates, and other snivelling do-gooders and anti-establishment leftists.

Any cash given to homeless people inevitably goes to drugs & alcohol. If homelessness bothers you, elect politicians to out-law it.

Try the "homeless" guy who panhandles at the DVP Bayview ramp. By his own admission, he takes home over $30k tax-free annually, plus welfare. Not a bad life.

Nonetheless, great thoughts from Alpha1 and compliments of the season to everyone.
