A Christmas from a non Christian Perspective

This may seem unusual, but I enjoy Christmas as a non Christian. The beloved Rav Roov would probably tell you that salvation as commonly expressed by Christians originates in our faith. A true Christian understands Jesus as the fulfillment of the Judaic prophecies and not removed from them.

Many of the stories have appeal beyond the religious morals. My favorite is the Gift of the Magi by O'Henry. There is something all too human about young couples trying to make ends meet.

I remember growing up many of my friends did not like Davey and Goliath, because of the religious messages. Yet the stories were always well told and the message was pertinent. It is funny but many of those Fat Albert cartoons also had similar themes from Cosby.

Many of those on our trip wrongly assumed I would be hostile to Christianity. They probably got this notion from Commies who like to speak in my name while championing those who would kill Jews. The religious Jews, like Rav Roov, are happiest when people embrace their own tradition. The exceptions comes when these traditions like Shariah are Jim Crow like.

The notion of families spending time together and salvation resonate beyond Christians.

Merry Christmas


Beamish in 08

A special treat from the Beakerkin Production Studios. How the Duck stole Christmas scheduled
for 2008.

Kid Crying: What type of gift is this I asked for a video game system and got a boxed set of Paul Robeson Cd's

Mom: Consider yourself lucky your Dad got the insane political wisdom of Sean Penn.

Dad: It seems like the commies have nationalized Christmas.

Mom: What makes you say that.

Dad: Your cheaply made negligee say Gloria of the Gulag.

Ducky: Thats left folks, Santa Claus was overthrown in a violent wevelution led by Noam Chimpanzee. We placed all those who are in evil cwasses in guwags where they pwoduce poorwy
made Communists goods.

Dad: You commies have gone too far this time.

Ducky: Mr Beamish and Beakerwambo can not save the planet this time. We have our Comwads
in the IRS keeping them busy.

Of course this is a Christmas movie and they always have happy endings.

Elmer's Brother said...

Blessed Holy Days to you Beak.

Farmer John said...

Was the negligee made of burlap? Will Ducky play the commissar and the peasant girl again? And where is beakerambo and the beamish army?

Ducky's here said...

Merry Christmas , Beak.

Happy New Year and good luck with the job assignment.

beakerkin said...

Thank you Ducky

Beakerambo is still playing the role of Mr Beamish's witless side kick, ammo carrier and crash dummy.

The Beamish Army is still in Trashcanistan picking up what is left
of John Bwown/LWB. They are looking for Renegade Eye but he seems to have found sanctuary in an insane asylum
outside of Berkley.

A Very Merry Christmas to you Beaker...and a Blessed New Year to you and your's!

And you are very correct about Yeshua, after all, HE was called rabbi...

Merry Christmas, Beak.

I've having a blue Christmas:

1. Mr. AOW had to work all day, up till midnight. This is our first Christmas Eve not together in 37 years. He even missed the family gathering this afternoon. Maybe he should be grateful that he missed the punch. It was nasty!

2. I've come down with a terrible cough. I hope this doesn't go into pneumonia. That's what has happened to several of my friends.

3. The County Board of Zoning Enforcement is on my case again--with a law suit this time. They've already admitted that litigation shouldn't have been filed. Still, now we have to negotiate.

Beak, there is a touching account in the little book "Jugend an der Isar" by the great Schalom Ben-Chorin, who was born 1913 in Munich as Fritz Rosenthal, the story of his childhood.

It's about the little girl from an assimilated Jewish family who says: "Look Mummy, the Christians have a Christmas tree as well!"

(It doesn't come fully across in English, because it's Christen (Christians), but Weihnachtsbaum (Christmas tree) in German.
