As for christmas being pagan it is the x-mas tree and the decorations that are pagan, not the celebration!

If legidmate, you may have the right to bash Christain beliefs.
However, your evidence to whether these are subliminal messages is pathetic.
Trust me, if people were sending you these sort of message you wouldn't be able to recognize it.
In fact, you criticize the Christain faith, when in reality everyone is doing it.
Thus, says a lot. Perhaps my foolish little friend, that you may have been sent these supposed messages to influence you to diminish the creditability of the Christian and Catholic faiths.
Being a Catholic, these symbols which you showed are only of my neighbours slithly skewwed version of Catholism, but say I posted, whatever this message system is called, about the sublimidal messages in the Jewish faith, or the Buddist faith, and we'll see how much controversy that would stir. Not only controversy within others, but in yourself. And then, well see who has been influenced by this alterior powers. You people are so naive. The truth is always the last place you look, and the most unpopular belief.
The vestments angle is what I would like to pick up on and back track to the other symbology.
Originally posted by MauiStaceyMany historical events with their associated traditions and customs first originated in Babylon and are performed today. This is the reason we even find modern clerics and members of liturgical churches starting with the Pope in Rome... wearing vestments not remotely characteristic of any style of clothing worn by the first century disciples -- the students and learners of Christ. Some of these liturgical vestments... beginning with the practice of priests
