A reader's comment to Understanding the Truth of Advent by Acknowledging the Reality of Death, by Rev. Amy Ziettlow
on Huffington Post:
"Should we as Christian people and families cave in to the secular expressions of the season or should we call things what they truly are?"
Since when do Christians call things what they truly are? Isn't it pretty much a requirement that you DON'T do that?
I think Sigmund Freud would've just loved the way you started out your essay with mentions of the fictional characters of Star Wars and Harry Potter in the imagination of a young child, and then went on to insist that the stories of Jesus are of a completely different nature.
I think I can hear him chuckling in his grave. (No, not REALLY.)
