NBC Editor Denounces
“Religious” Part of Christmas

Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/12/2012 7:34:45 PM

NBC’s medical editor denounced the religious part of Christmas during a panel discussion about the holiday on Today. (Snip) “I don’t like the religion part,” said Nancy Snyderman, the network’s chief medical editor. “I think religion is what mucks the whole thing up.” The “religion” she was referring to is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The outburst came during a panel discussion with Matt Lauer, Star Jones and Donny Deutsch. Her response came after Jones said she focuses on the religious meaning of Christmas. “That’s the only reason why — that’s the only reason

Comments:
You know it´s bad when even the libs sitting on the panel with her were shocked. It is incredible how emboldened these sick people are. If she had any sense she would apologize for her offensive statement. You can bet if she said anything like that about Muslims NBC would be breaking their necks apologizing.

Interesting. Other than the "religious part", what is Christmas all about?

Her right. Her loss. There´ll come a time when she realizes she´s on the losing side of the matter. I hope for her sake that it happens before it´s too late.

I never liked Dr. Nancy...she always acted like she was better than everyone else and like she knows everything but always sounds ignorant and foolish.

Right on, Star, that is what Christmas is all about in the first place! With out Christ, how can you have Christmas!?

I keep wondering when Americans are going to wise up and ask themselves exactly why they are running around spending money for a holiday fewer and fewer people understand or appreciate. What is it that they think they are doing? Why are they bothering to do it? Does a plain vanilla generic "holiday season" really warrant such trouble and expense? Especially when they are increasingly unable to agree upon what the holiday is for or what they are supposedly celebrating. An unthinking orgy of reckless consumerism lubricated by deliberately vague and inoffensive sentimentality leaves little in its wake but the hangover of needless debt.

Snyderman´s comment is not as dumb as it sounds. "The religious part" of Christmas HAS become confusing, conflicted, and bothersome. It fosters ill will, accentuates political and cultural divisions, irritates the atheists and annoys a lot of people for a lot of reasons. We might as well get rid of what remains of it and then get rid of Christmas entirely. Take out the religion that seems to offend so many people and there is really nothing left.

Halloween seems to be moving up in importance lately. There is something fitting about this and the possibility that Halloween, not Christmas, may soon become America´s only true national holiday.

So many people celebrate the shopping season - not the birth of the Savior. I think Christians should stop shopping and start worshipping, praying and spending time with one another. There is no meaning to this holiday any longer. Like the above poster said, Halloween has more significance than Christmas nowadays.

The celebration of Christmas, one of the two most holy events posessed by all Christianity, occurs within the hearts of Christians. Ignore the commercial parasitism of its occurrence. Hold in contempt the insults of Obama´s Ministry of Truth!

She´s confused as to why Mary didn´t have an abortion, what with the unwanted holy conception and all.

I´ll admit her statement caught me off guard. People say ´Happy Holidays´ because you really don´t know whether they´re Christian or Jewish.

I had a Jewish friend in college and I asked him how his Christmas was upon returning from break. He looked at me and reminded me he was Jewish. I was embarrassed. We both laughed and I asked how was his Hanukkah. He then asked me how was my Christmas.

Since then I´ve tried to discern between the two when I speak to people simply out of respect, but end up saying Merry Christmas to most people anyway.

I stopped Christmas shopping years ago. The season is for celebrating the birth of Jesus. My family spends the day together with friends and more family. There is no pressure of what to buy or spending money we don´t have. And another stress reducer for me is I get my news from Lucianne. Our Tv is hardly ever turned on so I have no idea who is on the Today show after Katie and my life is good. Now if I could turn off the government.............

TV doctors. What don´t they know?

The Today circles the drain, not only because of Matt Lauer but because the surrounding cast poseurs, trying to foist upper west side faux sophistication as some sort of world view, routinely insult viewers just trying to get some news on their way out the door.

Honestly, Christmas is not even the major holiday for Christians. That would be Easter. For a child, the secular part of Christmas is magic and a fond memory, but unless one comprehends the real reason for the season in adulthood, and that becomes their focus, they cannot comprehend the peace and joy that Christmas brings to those who believe. If I never get another gift, I will still celebrate Christmas.

This is the direct result of the teaching, and the believing in, of the idea of evolution. She wants all to know that she has "evolved" to a higher level, that the idea of God can be set aside, and in her heart of hearts, she is god, since there is no other. So it´s pride again; just like Satan to rope-a-dope the vain and gullible. Works every time with the unsaved. Nobody is watching? do what ever, for what ever. Followers ought to know better who they believe in.

Nancy Synderman, MD. What a shameful woman; what a contemptible thing to say but why is anyone working for NBC who says this stuff a surprise? If anyone wants to see contemptible, watch Big Moo taking us on the White House "Joy" tour. Never one time did she use the word Christmas or in any way refer to Christianity. Her nebulous—and as stupid as she is—goal is, she said, "Joy to All." Way to go you dumb boor. This ugly woman is nothing more than an angry amazon buff armed slob who is too busy vacationing and trying to look acceptable that she no longer even tries to cover up having sold her soul. She shames America when she opens her eyes in the morning.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital.

Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
