Holiday Peace = Not supporting the troops

I really have no idea what the big deal is. Seems like much ado about nothing.

Isn't "Peace on Earth, Good Will towards Men" a commonly quoted Bible verse during the holidays?


*edit* changed "Peach" to "Peace" :-b

Do people really believe that?? I've never heard that before


My dad, among many others I know, believe this.

There have been claims that the symbol has older, occult or anti-Christian associations. In South Africa, under the apartheid regime, there was an official attempt to ban it. Various far-right and fundamentalist American groups have also spread the idea of Satanic associations or condemned it as a Communist sign. However the origins and the ideas behind the symbol have been clearly described, both in letters and in interviews, by Gerald Holtom and his original, first sketches are now on display as part of the Commonweal Collection in Bradford.

That's not a Bible verse I'm familiar with. The sentiment is probably there but it's not a direct quote from the Bible.

It's not that small. :-b

I've gotten very close to meeting them. I didn't recognize the guy standing behind this bus after a show we had been to. Turns out it was SA.

Yes, it is. :-D

It's from Luke. I think it's actually on Earth peace but most people say peace on Earth.

Edit: Yeah looked it up online:

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
