Comcast is Anti-Christ

Posted Mon December 20, 2010 3:08 pm, by Dale W. T. written to Comcast Corporation

Apparently, you do not know how to spell Christmas. I just noticed on my Cable 66 "Christmas in Connecticut" is scheduled for 3:00 PM my local time. However, you leave out "Christ" and substitute an " X " for Christ. Before you say it is an acceptable abbreviation, DON'T say it because it is not.

I want nothing except I just want people to know how Anti-Christ THE Comcast Company really is.

sometimes i wonder if the software for this site has a sick sense of
humor...

I've already seen an add about the bible and the number 666 as well as
an ad about learning about the Antichrist.

O_o

Google, you're weird sometimes.

Separation of Church and Cable. Seriously, there are SO MANY OTHER
REASONS why Comcast is The Anti-Christ, couldn't you choose a better
one about which to bitch?

If Comcast is the Anti-Christ, then Time Warner must be Christ, right?
(or maybe DirectTV?)

I guess your religion is not that important in your life. If any
business is violation your religion and you keep doing business with
them, then who is really at fault here?

Every year, my one Christmas wish is the same: A life uncomplicated
enough that I could afford to give a crap whether Comcast abbreviated
Christmas to Xmas or if the Wal-Mart cashier greeted me with a "Merry
Christmas" or a "Happy Holidays."

Yet another year disappointed.

Actually by putting in X they are keeping Christ in Christmas, if
you'd even remember that the New testament is mostly from greek
manuscritps, which often used abbreviations X was originally the Greek
letter Chi which was used as a shorthand for Christ since scribes were
all about that for some crazy reason.

Don't believe me, just google Chi-Rho (the United Church's symbol) and
aside from the thing that looks like a P tell me what the other part
is, yup an X.

And now you know why X-mas is just as legitimate.

sounds like they didn't have enough room for the whole word.


but wait... they're showing a christmas show but now they're
anti-christian?

if they were anti-christian they wouldn't be showing that program at
all. instead they'd be putting on programs like "Dinner With The
Devil" on channel 666 or stuff like that.

Perhaps you need a bit of education. Or, perhaps you enjoy going
through life playing “holier than thou”. If you would like to know the
TRUTH rather than continuing to operate on prejudice and fear
(something that is truly ANTI-Christ) go to this site and read about
the origin of Xmas. HINT: this is not something new, modern or thought
up by secularists.

Read some of these other posts here. Do a little research. Hold God
and Christ in your heart but stop wearing your faith on your sleeve as
if you are somehow superior to the rest of humanity.

Do you put this much energy into helping the innocent and less
fortunate folks around you? Christ did.

Are you tolerant of those who do not beleive the same things as you?
Christ was.

Do you try to bring joy and comfort to those who need it? Christ did.

Maybe a little more of that sort of behavior and a little less of this
harsh critism based on the way a cable company spells something might
enrich your life.

Makes me think of my favorite quote: by MissNaomi Tue December 28, 2010 @ 1:38 PM

by MA Cunningham Posted Tue December 21, 2010 @ 8:33 AM

everything have to be like this at the holidays?

Look, it's great that you have your faith and you are so strongly
supportive of it, no one can take that away from you. But calling
other people and whole companies out for not thinking like you do and
not doing things the way you think they should is very UN-Christian.
Especially at this time of year!

Somehow, I don't see Jesus getting all testy because they called it an
"Xmas" special instead of "Christmas." I mean, c'mon! He shares his
birthday with a big fat man in a red velvet suit for crying out loud!


As other's said, it could have been a space constraint thing.
Regardless of the reason, they can call it whatever they want, but it
really doesn't matter. There are FAR better things to be concerned
with at this time of the year.

Please, don't get me and a lot of other people started on the "Christ
in Christmas" thing, it's a complete can of worms.

In Greek, the first letter the name of "Christ" is an X (called
"chi"), not a C. Not to disparage your faith or anything, but you
might want to do some research on the history of your own faith before
declaring something or someone to be Anti-christian.

I was going to provide a similar post as the first, so I'm glad
someone beat me to it!

I believe the Catholic Church still uses X in "Christmas" at certain
times.

by Lisa H. Posted Mon December 20, 2010 @ 3:20 PM

Actually, using "X" in the phrase has been around a LONG time, almost
as long as Christianity itself.

The first letter in the Greek word for Christ is "Chi" which is
represented by the Roman character "X". You may not like it, but it
isn't a modern invention to somehow remove Christ from Christmas. If
Comcast were truly anti-Christ, why would they be showing any
Christmas programming at all?

My guess is that they were limited as to how many character they had
to work with, so choose that abbrivation.
