A Clown Ministry Christmas. With the ever-present crush of Yuletide commercialism, perhaps this can help you remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. More generalized Clown Ministry skits can be found here.

Mithras is the reason for the season.

A clown ministry. I can't really get beyond those words without laughing.
But maybe that's the point...

If clowns weren't scary enough, now I have to picture a baby clown being birthed.

You know, I've always thought that the "clowns are scary" thing is sort of bullshit. I don't think that many people are actually scared of clowns, it's just become a knee-jerk "funny" thing to say (...to avoid a nuanced and mature discussion of clowns?)

That being said, I find things like "1 speaking clown, carving a pumpkin to illustrate the gospel" and "A retelling of the parable of the Good Samaritan, set in the old west, for 4 speaking clowns" scary, but in a very different way.

Hasn't monotheism caused enough problems in the world recently. Let's get the Christ out of Christmas.

Shrooms are the reason for the season.

Before getting into a lengthy discussion on the history of Christmas, please see last week's thread on a similar topic here.

And well, gee, since I'm here I might as well post this xmas link again.
