Well,I'm always good, but when I'm naughty I'm better!:)))

Hope everybody got lots of gifts. I didn't get or give any. It was purely a spiritual Christmas this year.

and yes indeed, Happy Birthday JC!

Field, I was having a great XMAS until I saw your post. What the hell is wrong with you? Don't you know that you don't call Jesus Christ "JC"...it is downright blasphemy and a big sin. Don't you ever get tired of sinning? That fire in hell is going to be real red hot for your ass.

Anyway, have a Merry Xmas here on earth because you won't be having any in hell.

Desert, "Hope everybody got lots of gifts. I didn't get or give any. It was purely a spiritual Christmas this year."

Yeah, I noticed. That's not being spiritual. That's being cheap....Where the hell is my Xmas cake?

Dear Mr. Field, I appreciate you wishing everyone an enjoyable time with their families. But quite frankly, I really don't enjoy mine. In fact, I dread the holidays because I don't want to be bothered by some of my jackass relatives.

Now I know how we folks like to pretend we really enjoy our family get togethers but for a lot of us Negroes that is a pile of BS. I don't enjoy it and I can't wait for this shit to be over with so things can get back to normal and my depression lifted.

One other thing: Stop calling Jesus Christ "JC". You know better.

Come Monday, please post something worthwhile.

I still want JC to explain why his Dad and himself drowned all those Japanese school children. I thought JC's dad was supposed be omnipotent and omnipresent.

So why did a supposedly merciful God allow that to happen? Either God is a malevolent, evil despot, or he's a racist.

Or maybe he doesn't exist.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say nine people were shot when a fight broke out at a Chattanooga nightclub, where some 400 teens and adults were attending a Christmas party. Police say all those shot are expected to survive.

Chattanooga police said in a press release Sunday morning that an off-duty officer who had been working at Club Fathom fired shots at a suspect who pointed a gun at him, but the gunman got away. The officer was not wounded.

Police Chief Bobby Dodd tells WTVC-TV ( http://bit.ly/tXuRXb ) that a fight broke out at the club around midnight.

Soldier paralyzed in shooting at homecoming party

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) -- A decorated Army soldier recovering from injuries suffered in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan has been shot at his homecoming party, and family members say he's paralyzed and in critical condition.

Christopher Sullivan, 22, was shot late Friday while trying to break up a fight between his brother and another man at a San Bernardino, Calif., residence.

"My son didn't deserve this. He served his country," his mother, Suzanne Sullivan, told the San Bernardino Sun (http://bit.ly/sjycMA ).

Suzanne Sullivan said her son suffered two gunshot wounds to his back, which shattered his spine. Family members told the newspaper that the shooting late Friday left Sullivan paralyzed and in critical condition.

Police said Sullivan's brother and a partygoer got into an argument over football. When Sullivan moved to intervene, the man pulled a gun and opened fire.

The gunman fled the scene before police arrived.

Nigerians fear more church attacks after 39 killed

Dec 26, 5:02 AM (ET)

By LEKAN OYEKANMI and JON GAMBRELL

MADALLA, Nigeria (AP) - At a Nigerian Catholic church where a terror attack killed 35 people on Christmas, women tried to clean the sanctuary ahead of Mass on Monday while one man wept uncontrollably amid the debris.

Outside St. Theresa Catholic Church, crowds gathered among the burned-out cars in the dirt parking lot, angry over the attack claimed by a radical Muslim sect and fearful that the group will target more churches.

Rev. Father Christopher Jataudarde told The Associated Press that Sunday's blast happened as church officials gave parishioners white powder as part of a tradition celebrating the birth of Christ.

Some already had left the church at the time of the bombing, causing the massive casualties. In the chaos after the bombing, Jataudarde said one mortally wounded man, cradling his shredded stomach, begged him for religious atonement.

"Father, pray for me, I will not survive," the man said, according to the priest.

At least 52 people were wounded in the attack, said Slaku Luguard, a coordinator with Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency. Victims filled the cement floors of a nearby government hospital, some crying in pools of their own blood.

On Christmas, attacks by the radical Muslim sect left 39 dead across Africa's most populous nation. A bomb also exploded amid gunfire in the central Nigeria city of Jos and a suicide car bomber attacked the military in the nation's northeast.

After the bombings, a Boko Haram spokesman using the nom de guerre Abul-Qaqa claimed responsibility for the attacks in an interview with The Daily Trust, the newspaper of record across Nigeria's Muslim north. The sect has used the newspaper in the past to communicate with public.

"There will never be peace until our demands are met," the newspaper quoted the spokesman as saying.

"We want all our brothers who have been incarcerated to be released; we want full implementation of the Sharia system and we want democracy and the constitution to be suspended."

Okay, so the guy who said calling Jesus Christ "JC" is blasphemous is wrong by any theological interpretation. However, abbreviating Christmas by saying "Xmas" IS considered incorrect, and though not blasphemous, is considered equally offensive to "JC" in most theological circles. Fortunately, JC taught us to forgive hypocrites, especially on Xmas.

To the Purple Cow - The 'problem of evil' is one of the oldest questions connected with religion. Why do bad things happen to good people if God is loving? All the religions have their different answers for that one. All I can say, is you and I are not the first persons to ask it, and yeah, they've covered that. It's not sufficient to disprove the existence of God, however. For one thing, we might suppose God created the laws of physics governing earthquakes. We might also suppose that if he's eternal and our souls are eternal, all of us dying isn't the number one concern on his list - anymore than who wins the Super Bowl. According to most religious dogma, he's more interested in how we live than how or when we die. I'm an agnostic, so I'm not saying I believe or disbelieve one way or another. You're not alone in your compassion for the innocents, though - and if there is a God, I'd say he's got some explaining to do.

Lastly, in response to the current events: People sure seem equal in blame, at any rate. We sure love our macho blood-sports, don't we? A soldier is killed at a football party. Conflict, conflict, conflict. Muslims bomb some Christians. More conflict. Why don't we just stop thinking if it doesn't cost blood it's worthless? Like, as a species? What I'm saying is, I see macho conflict woven all into those things. That's why I stay home and don't go to football parties or to church - which are basically the same thing, btw.

Oh yeah, and without invoking some religious title - Happy Holidays to everyone.
