I have about had it with all the attacks on Christmas, Christmas Trees, Nativity Scenes, Christmas Carols on and on.
Do you think we could get them to shut up if we gave Atheists their own day to raise their self esteem. Maybe with their own day they won't be so offended that there are Christians that hold December 25th precious.
Give them February 11. It doesn't seem to belong to anyone else.
They can give each other bags of hot air.
They can have a meal of grouse, sour grapes and toast each other with pickle juice.
They can sit in the dark singing nothing and feel grim and smug while being alone in the universe.
"99 percent of atheists don't seem to have any problem with Christmas."
Yes, and the ones causing the problem, probably numbers in the low thousands, have another agenda, and it is a destruction of American tradition, culture, and society.
They could care less about Christmas, Christ, or anything else, as long as they can make their goal of destroying America as we know it.
Atheists celebrate Christmas. Take a chill pill.
True atheists are not offended at any religious event. To the TRUE atheist, people attending a church service are in the same catagory as people who dress up as their favorite Star Trek character and go to conventions. Do atheists become offended by people who talk of UFO's or little green men from Mars? Then why would they be offended when people talk of God? After all, to them aren't little green Martians and God equally ficticious?
The people who are offended are the people who HATE Christianity and seek to eliminate it.
Nobody celebrates April 15 except socialists.
I'm not unhappy with the holiday as it stands now. I have no desire, nor any need to start another holiday. If you don't like it, well tough, you're not about to change me.
Probably some mean spirited Christian would sue them; I wonder if the ACLU would join in?
Yup. Slow news day. It is seasonal.
There has been lots of news about Plano School system banning certain colors, Other places where non denominational trees with tags where you can buy gifts for needy children are being protested. There has been news about nativity scenes being vandalized. Stories of Children being prevented from singing Christmas Carols.
Seems timely for a discussion to me.
oh really.. what does BC mean to you?
In a nearby town they took down all the candles and Christmas symbols throughout the town and replaced them with one snowman.
Good idea. I like it.
