Don’t know much about any No Jesus rule but sure I didn’t particularly want my kids when little to watch what would essentially be propaganda for another faith’s beliefs. Why would I? No Frosty though? Never heard anyone doing anything like that.
You are really though conflating two questions. What I think about the historical figure of Jesus Christ and how I react to the imposition of the (to my belief) mythologic character of Jesus Christ into my (and kids when little) secular existance are very different things.
As to the first, I find the historical figure to be of some interest. I also find Mohammed and the Buddha to be interesting.
In a related fashion I find how that historic figure became the (again to my way of thinking) myth and how that myth was used by various peoples and cultures over history for good bad and none of the above to be of significant interest as well. It is hard to deal with history and not consider it along the way. The historic figure bears no responsibility for what his myth became and how it was used.
Not something that is a big deal to me though. Intellectually interesting.
The manner that the myth is used in current culture and the way the myth is imposed upon my children in the public sphere is a different matter. To the degree that the myth is part of parcel of being of the culture it sets me and mine as outsider, an insecure place to be. Now a little insecurity is not a bad thing; it drives you. But you don’t like your kids feeling like they are outsiders in their own country.
Again, no offense meant in referring to Jesus the myth. I respect the belief. This is discussing from a different perpsective is all.
