The Rock, Conway's (S.C.) Community Church sent out this postcard to the community; the backlash has been caustic. The pastor has written this apology.

Personally, I think it was in poor taste and sends a tired message to the unchurched community that we are judgmental party poopers. I've never understood the anti-holiday crowd. The pagan roots folk, who have a backstory to every event in the calendar and its historic beginnings back among Druids, Mayans, Romans and the Illuminati.

There's a mindset out there among certain religious types that the goal of Christians is to show how much we are not like the others. Instead of being huge Debbie Downers, let's throw the best parties and reclaim our heritage as Festival people again.

“Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted” -Titus 1:15

What's your take?
