Posted on 11/29/2012 5:38:17 AM PST by Kaslin
The atheists I grew up with in Texas were a tad bit pluckier than todays lardy hagfish atheists who file lawsuits every winter when they see a child wrapped in swaddling clothes.
Yep, the anti-theists I used to hang out with in the Lone Star state were rugged individualists who were so busy milking this existence that they didnt have time to bleat like a stuck sheep because a plastic baby Jesus statue endangered their delicate beliefs.
My other non-believing buddies who werent the robust Hemingway types were usually heady stoners who were into physics, Pink Floyd and Frisbee and were completely comfortable around people of faith versus todays reflexively irate, touchy atheists who pop a blood vein in their forehead if they accidentally hear Silent Night playing at Macys.
For Gods sake atheists, übermensch up why dont you?
The latest hissy fit thrown by the anti-theist this Christmas is over Charlie Brown. Yep, according to Fox News Charlie Brown is in the middle of a contentious religious fight. A group of parents are fighting an Arkansas elementary school over a field trip to see a stage production of A Charlie Brown Christmas at a church. Fox News religion contributor Father Jonathan Morris weighed in on the controversy today on Fox and Friends. Father Morris asked, Who would be afraid of their children going to watch a classic Charlie Brown story like this? He said, The fact that we have the right to free speech for all means that theres going to be also an opportunity and a probability that there will also be people who will do stupid, ignorant and totally out of line things like protesting the fact that Charlie Brown is going to be presented, and his Christmas story presented to kids.
According to the 21st century metrosexual atheist motif, anything that offends the pouty atheist should now be banned. That makes me scratch my head because I thought the atheists were the tough-minded ones who could stare death in the face and mock God and His dictates, but now a silicone statue of Yeshua in diapers puts them in a tailspin. Hello, sweetie.
FYI to the spindly atheists: Youve got your work cut out for you if you want to scrub culture of its Christian influence because we have rubber stamped this planet via the arts and human expression for many, many moons. Have you ever heard of Bach, van Eyck, Vermeer, Handel, Mendelssohn, Haydn and a writer named Billy Shakespeare? What about the artists of the early Italian Renaissance or the tens of thousands of other artists, writers and composers throughout history who were either die-hard believers or at least worked within the framework of a Christian worldview? Are you going to take a belt sander to their works because they remind you of Hey-Soos?
You know who did atheism right? The late Christopher Hitchens. He didnt whine or sue schools for singing Oh, Come All Ye Faithful. What did he do? He vigorously argued his point of view, engaged the brethren without being a shrill priss and left it to the audience to decide what path they were going to take, and I dig that kind of robust character. That said, as you can tell, I have no respect for atheists who want to ban Christian symbolism because they dont happen to buy it.
God haters. The muzzies will take care of them when the muzzies take over.
To the Atheists.......Live with it!!!
To the Atheists.......Live with it!!!
Oh my, a church. Can’t visit that on the pubskewl dime.
The point is to press the anti-faith dogma, no matter how asinine the attempt looks. Before I was a Christian, I gladly watched Charlie Brown Christmas specials on TV without fretting that someone was trying to ram Christianity down my throat.
Leftists dont believe in live and let live, or tolerance of those who disagree with them.
That’s the irony.
“Leftists dont believe in live and let live, or tolerance of those who disagree with them.”
They are a lot like Muslims in that.
well, they tried that for a season in preparation, so now, from the article...

its not God they even really fear, *if* theyre truly atheists...its US and our resistance to their power plans that keep em up at night [and sunday] plottin and plannin...
they hate us, and we are mortal enemies to them...so fair enuff, i simply return the favor and treat them as an enemy as well...
Merry CHRISTmas all...Luke 22:36
If I recall correctly ABC has always aired aired the Christmas Special. I could be wrong though, it’s been ages since I watched it
Just goes to show how much downhill our leaders in entertainment. 50 years ago we had Shulz, John Wayne, and Jimmy Stewart. Now we get Snoop Dog, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt. The entertainment industry's hard left turn is taking us to ruin.
I love the speach that Linus gives to tell what Christmas is all about.
I also love the irony of Sally wanting “just send tens and twenties” and “I only want what I have coming to me. I only want my fair share.” I did not realize that Sally was a socialist until last night. ARRGH
Rest in Peace, Charles Schultz
My mama says she cant understand me.
She cant see my motivation
Aint got no security,
Im a twentieth century man but I dont wanna be here.This is the twentieth century But too much aggravation This is the edge of insanity Im a twentieth century man but I dont wanna be here.
I absolutely love this Christmas cartoon. It first came out when I was very young and I watched it every Christmas growing up.
Just the music and the voices in bring back childhood memories and emotions about those Christmases.
And it was made in the Jonny Quest days, when cartoons were hand drawn by artists and are now a lost art.
We must NOT accomodate everyone. Their logic is that we must accomodate every subtle difference.
The opposite view says that ignoring is not discriminating. An alternate view is an alternate view.
What was the logic for keeping the Libertarian and Constitution parties out of the debates? Political sentiments are as easily strongly held and emotionally laden as are religious views....and they are also protected by the Constitution.
What was the answer? Low adherence means no publicity.
“Don't you know a sarcasm when you hear it?”
Actually, CBS were the ones who originally aired it in 1965. The network execs at CBS thought it’d be a flop, and even the producers of the show (Lee Mendelson & Bill Melendez) thought it was going to destroy the character’s image.
We all know what happened next.
Oh...ABC scored the rights to the show in 2001.
Of the two I prefer the muzzies. Is it all right that I said that?
I can’t believe I missed it last night. It’s not even December yet! Good grief!
I have it on DVD. That way, I never miss it.
“its not God they even really fear, *if* theyre truly atheists...its US and our resistance to their power plans that keep em up at night [and sunday] plottin and plannin...”
True. They are fanatical and never give up on their agenda even if they have to postpone it for a while. Like gun control. They concluded it wasnt helping them win elections so they tabled it. Now it has re-appeared.
They HATE anyone who opposes them, and I dont mean that figuratively. I dont think it is an exaggeration to say that given an opportunity they would put us into concentration camps or worse. Why do you think that every leftist revolution results in mass executions.

Every real-world historical ‘socialist’ regime becomes, in the end, a death cult. It’s all they have.
As my tagline avers, mass murder and cannibalism are the twin sacraments of socialism; as the great dictator V.I.Lenin wrote, it’s just a question of who kills and eats whom.
“Whiny Atheists Protest...”
They’re not whiny. They are hardcore revolutionaries intent on removing any references, what-so-ever, to
They also don’t believe that compromise is a two way street.
Like I said it’s been ages since I watched it and the first time I did was in 1966. I used to watch it every year when my children were still small
Like I said it’s been ages since I watched it and the first time I did was in 1966. I used to watch it every year when my children were still small, but I don’t watch the ABC channels anymore and haven’t since 1998 or 99
When my 14 year old son was a baby still in his crib, we would put him to bed every night with the sound track to Peanuts/Charlie Brown Christmas. I must have heard that music 500 times. I am not kidding.
It has been my experience that people who claim to be atheists are actually God-haters and they do not want anyone who loves God to express their beliefs.
“..they hate us, and we are mortal enemies to them...so fair enuff, i simply return the favor and treat them as an enemy as well...”
I feel the same, buddy. F*** ‘em. Worthless, psychotic morons with no lives who have nothing better to do than try to wreck anything good or enjoyable for other people.
“...and it was made in the Jonny Quest days, ...”
Doug Wildey was the artist that created Jonny Quest - I believe he died around 2004, unfortunately. I have all of the original episodes on DVD. They are still some of the best action cartoons for little boys ever made - which, of course, is why the left hates them. They shoot guns, they made no bones about who the bad guys were (Russian and Chicom villains, usually), and they had adventures all over the world.
“Charlie Brown Christmas” does indeed bring back good memories, for me as well.
I think it was CBS that used to play Charlie Brown and the Grinch back-to-back, and the moment you saw the commercials for those two shows, you just KNEW it was “officially” the Christmas season, and the Sears “Wish Book” catalog would be in the mail any day.
1964 was the year both Charlie Brown and Jonny Quest first aired. I was 4 and I remember those shows vividly.
A better time for the country, back then...much better than what we have now.
Not atheists. Anti-theists. I loved that show when I was an atheist.
It is the only time he is not holding the blanket throughtout the whole show.
Thank goodness I wasn't drinking anything last night when I heard that, or ABC would have owed me a new keyboard at the least. Mr. Schulz was prescient in his Sally and Lucy characters.
Watching shows like this makes me sad to think how we've screwed up the legacy that "the greatest generation" left us.
“A better time for the country, back then...much better than what we have now.”
If you ask people over 50 about whether American society is better or worse than when they were growing up nearly all say its worse. I try to explain that to my 20 something kids but they dont understand the extent of how degraded society has become. They grew up in this sewer so they think its normal.
May a muslim barber cut off their whiny heads. I’ll bet most of them were bed wetters as children (or still are).
yep, anymore its become a relltale to simply see the deadpan *sharks eyes* in all these people...
many would enjoy the chance to man the firing line...
at a certain point, we will too...
that said, Linus' monologue is worth the time in the toon...and I enjoy posting it and sharing it when it comes around, just to make em squirm... 8^}
bullies always keep pushing, at least til the pushback...
“...They grew up in this sewer so they think its normal...”
And when the sewer is the new normal, it’s up to us to send it back to the sewer.
We get what we’re willing to tolerate, like Jefferson said in the Declaration :”all experience has shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”
It’s up to us, our generation, here and now, not to tolerate it anymore.
We DO have a choice, my friend.
“...bullies always keep pushing, at least til the pushback...”
To paraphrase the Hulk “You won’t like us when we’re angry”....
It was by far my favorite TV show as a young kid 1960s and it was prime time at night when I first watched it. It got canceled after only one season because it was expensive to create such high quality hand drawn cartoons weekly even though it was popular.
I was a boy 6 or 7 and the world had to stop when that show came on weekly at night. The lib wimmin got all Hanna Barbara Cartoon Adventure shows canceled by 1970 and it was Scooby Doo and Jose and the Pussycats on Saturdays instead.
Fortunately for me Boomerang Channel still plays them daily and even I my age I still love them, the originals of course. The 1980s newer ones are not close to them in quality,
I found this for us:
The ABC Television Network will celebrate the joy of the holidays with the classic animated Christmas-themed PEANUTS special, A Charlie Brown Christmas, created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, airing TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT; OAD on ABC: 11/28/06). In the digitally-remastered 1965 special, Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism that he sees everywhere during the Christmas season. Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant, and Charlie Brown accepts, but it proves to be a frustrating struggle. When an attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir Christmas tree fails, Charlie Brown needs Linus’ help to learn what the real meaning of Christmas is.

“..it was prime time at night when I first watched it...”
Really? I only ever remember it on Saturday mornings... however I DO remember “The Flinstones” on prime time evening.
“..The lib wimmin got all Hanna Barbara Cartoon Adventure shows canceled by 1970...”
Even back then we had to deal with these moronic b*tches.
I still catch JQ on Boomerang as well. My son loved it growing up as well. Still does.
When Cartoon Network first came on-air roundabout 1989, they had a Jonny Quest Marathon and I had the VHS recorder running for all of the original episodes. I made it a point to copy it on VHS (when that was the rage) and give it to other friends who had sons.
These are cartoons for boys, about boys, BEING boys.
Hence...the other side hates it.
“Atheists don’t believe in God. But the Devil does.’’— Bishop Fulton J. Sheen.
I first saw Jonny Quest when was I was a very young kid at night on prime time and I immediately fell in love with it
As a boy I told everyone my FAVORITE SHOW was Jonny Quest. I didnt even realize it was a cartoon till my parents told me it was.
At that age an extremely well done imaginative super action series like that with a boy as the main character sends a little boy like we were into the outer space of imagination saving the country from monsters, space aliens and evil scientists with really neat evil accents and voices. No cartoon matches thatoriginal series to this day, all hand drawn.
Quest often casually referred to as The Adventures of Jonny Quest is an American science fiction/adventure animated television series about a boy who accompanies his father on extraordinary adventures. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for Screen Gems, and created and designed by comic book artist Doug Wildey. Inspired by radio serials and comics in the action-adventure genre, it featured more realistic art, characters, and stories than Hanna-Barbera’s previous cartoon programs. It was the first of several Hanna-Barbera action-based adventure shows which would later include Space Ghost, The Herculoids, and Birdman and the Galaxy Trio and ran on ABC in prime time on early Friday nights for one season in 196465.
Jonny Quest first aired on September 18, 1964 on the ABC network, in prime time, and was an almost instant success, both critically and ratings-wise. It was canceled after one season, not because of poor ratings, but because each episode of the show went over budget.
Like the original Star Trek television series, this series would be a big money-maker in syndication, but this avenue to profits was not as well-known when the show was canceled in 1965. Reruns of the show were broadcast on CBS from September 9, 1967 to September 5, 1970 and on NBC from September 11, 1971 to September 2, 1972. This makes it one of the few (if not only) television series to air on all three of the major national broadcast networks in the USA

“...Reruns of the show were broadcast on CBS from September 9, 1967 to September 5, 1970 and on NBC from September 11, 1971 to September 2, 1972....”
That’s about right when I remember it...I would have been 6 or 7 when I first became aware of that show, Saturday mornings.
LOVED the robot spy episode with the giant walking robot “spider” - and “The Curse of Anubis” with the mummy.
The Invisible monster was a good one too - where they slammed it with paint to make it visible - and the jet packs. Wild stuff for a little boy - absolutely loved it.
The original “Spiderman” cartoon was on thereabouts as well, which was also pretty cool.
Conservatives and Christians should use a little Alinsky here. How?
Remove their children from the government's temples of atheistic indoctrination and vote to utterly defund these government established churches of godlessness.
Immediately move all sports and related activities to the departments of recreation or ( better) privatize all of it.
There are entire counties and even whole states where if Christians and conservatives removed their kids the entire system of godless government schooling would **immediately** collapse. What would be the consequences?
1) Within two weeks churches synagogues, and independent groups of believers would have schools and homeschool groups organized for their children. Literacy and numeracy would immediately see improvement.
2) Atheists would be on their own.
3) Armies of socialist government teachers and Marxist professors of education would be out on the street looking for real work producing real health and wealth for the community.
I have seen them all more than 100 times in the past ~ 48 years since they were first shown on prime time TV, and a about a year ago I watched them all again on Boomerang, I set the DVR to capture the series.
That 1960s adventure cartoon has the most exciting and fun TV show theme opening (sound and scenes) that I have ever seen. It has the most exciting opening theme music with the best looking scenes of the show all clipped together.
And if you recall the show closing with the same music includes a scene or two that is not part of any of the actual shows(I first noticed this as a kid), where they escape a bunch of African looking (Tarzan type) natives in the jungle by running to and flying off in the famous Quest Jet.
I read someplace that that one scene was made to pilot the series to the TV network.
As I said at about 5 or 6 I actually thought it was real TV show with actors until my mother told me it was just a cartoon. That did not happen with any other cartoon.
If you recall on Saturdays + Sundays late 60s there was a H-B show called the Banana Splits (also replayed on Boomerang) that featured some of the HB adventure cartoon episodes.
I loved (HB cartoons)Space Ghost at the time, and the Herculoids
