Senior Catholic Priest Calls For ‘Complete Ban Of Christmas’ Because It’s Too Commercialized

A senior Catholic Priest has called for a complete and total ban on Christmas, claiming that the Holiday has become too commercialised.

Fr. Desmond Desmond O’Donnell, a parish priest in Cleenish in Co Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, claims Christians have lost the true meaning of Christmas.

Irishcentral.com reports: “We’ve lost Christmas, just like we lost Easter, and should abandon the word completely,” he sadly told the Belfast Telegraph.

“We need to let it go, it’s already been hijacked and we just need to recognise and accept that.”

He denied he was being a scrooge or a Christmas killjoy and added he wasn’t against atheists and agnostics celebrated the birth of Christ in their own way but he wanted a separate word with more religious connotations.

“I’m just trying to rescue the reality of Christmas for believers by giving up ‘Christmas’ and replacing it with another word.”

As an alternative he suggested the word ‘Christmas’ could be substituted for ‘Nativity’ and ‘Easter’ for ‘Resurrection’.

Such changes he concluded were necessary as Ireland was undergoing the rapid secularization that so many other countries in the western world had already experienced.

The church is getting too much commercial competition on Christmas that they feel threatened? The origin of Christmas, and the traditions of Christmas are all pagan. Christmas, purgatory among other pagan traditions were the main sources of funding for the catholic church.

As the world evolves, the spending ‘in church’ on these holidays has drastically reduced while spending on shopping has increased, like literally shot up, with all the targeted advertising in the season.

But in the botttom line, at least the priest agrees, there is nothing godly nor Christlike in Christmas. It was a pagan tradition started to help people spend their money.
