Religious Ignorance

I read something today on my mommy board. "Isn't Pagan something to do with anti religion?"

And I was shocked that people are still so closed minded to a religion that has been around since before Christianity. Especially considering that Christianity has it roots deeply ingrained in paganism. Which they will swear loudly is not true. But the most obvious of this the location of all Christian holidays, which were placed to coincide with the pagan holidays. And depending on who you ask, this was done either:
A. To make it easier for the pagans to convert
B. To wipe out another religion, as the church often did.

I am staying out of that argument today.

There are also stories that predate Christianity that are very similar to the the Christ story.

To make a long story short, don't be ignorant to peoples religions. And if you want to be, because you want to be close minded believing yours is the only way to God, keep your mouth shut.
