They are difficult to find among the morass of Christians and non-liberals who do replicate memes, and liberals and anti-theists constantly whinging and lulzing about that, but we do exist!
Likewise, liberal and anti-theist meme-spreading is not quite as easy to spot, mostly because it isn't pointed out as such, but it, too, does exist!
Having said all that, let's get to our list.
👩Joyce Faye: I am a Christian and the ones I hate are the ones that say something like, "ignore if you follow Satan and like and share if you follow Jesus." These make me very angry and most of them who do what these say are 40 or better. It's like a chain letter. Something bad will happen to you if you don't do as you are told. How can people be so clueless?
👨Edward Martin: I'm a Christian also, and it annoys me too.
👩Veronica: As for Xmas/Christmas, if you take the Christ out of it, that is on you. Xmas has been around as long as I can remember as a short way of writing Xmas when most of us handwrote our cards and had a lot of people we sent to. I still say Merry Christmas. I don't object if prolly say Happy Kwanza when that day comes around and don't object to Happy Hannukah. Each to their own.
I will stick to Christmas whether it is a pagan holiday usurped by the church or not. It is significant as a Christian holiday and will remain so for me and mine at least as long as I live.

How Rational conservatives Can Get Involved is a blog entry that also discourages the spreading of memes. It is really too bad they had to use the word "rational" since that implies conservatives are irrational by default, which the left is always claiming, and unfortunately way too many meme-loving conservatives continue falling into that trap.
