I celebrate Christmas and am not Christian. ?A ton of Americans do.

then how the hell can you say you know TRUE CHRISTIANITY?

Because I was Christian in the past, studied for years in college (theology).  I am well versed in the lore, the bible, and the coginitive aspects of faith.

I do not want to celebrate other religious holidays. Why should I?
If I get invited by friends it is something else. I would be glad to join this little group. But taking away the names of the holiday?
hell! I do not want to celebrate everything I do not want to be part with. I know of no muslim wanting to celebrate christmas. Are they racists now?

Let people stay in their groups. I do not understand why every single human has to join one holiday. I DO NOT CARE what others are celebrating as long as it does not interfere with my values. I do not want to join and I would not want to be part of other religious holidays. I am Christian and I would feel ashamed.

LOTM, please leave people alone with your view of religions and freedom. The minorities should be happy that they even have the right to express their religion. It is as if you would want a Klingon to celebrate a Betazoid marriage. NO WAY!

That is your choice.

However, a true Christian would celebrate all religions with a passion for love and acceptance of all in the same way Jesus would have.  Jesus did not avoid other religions he embraced them and spread his word.  He loved all regardless of their choices.  A good Christian would do that same. It is a shame so many psuedo-Christians are ruining what is a peaceful and accepting religion.

That last line being extremist racist and bigoted was a shameful expression of people afraid to let America be free to have equality for all religions and races as the constitution stated.

Well, I'd rather celebrate a muslim holiday in the USA than having a satanist mess in Saudi-Arabia. If only slightly rather these days.
