MBrady: Gato Blanco: MBrady: occamswrist: Since this holiday was originally a pagan celebration of the birth of the sun goddess Mirtha during the winter solstice, didn't Christianity do the hijacking?

So you'll be at your desk on December 25th as a normal work day, and not expect any "holiday" pay, since to you it's just a pagan celebration of the sun goddess Mirtha?

Good for you!

Uh, what if I am an atheist that is doing exactly that?

Does that mean your argument is absolutely retarded? Yes, yes it does.

Was I talking to you buckethead? No.

If you are an atheist, then shut up.


I feel sorry for the people in your life, if any.

Since when does your right not to be offended override other people's rights to use their private property as they see fit?

I'm not in favor of nativity displays either, but committing crimes only gives these people to ramp up their preaching. Case in point, the victim of this crime had originally only been passively preaching via a plastic display in his yard that would be considered tacky if it were anything but the nativity. But thanks to the vandal, now he's got his Jesus-rant promoted on an international website. In that context, how much damage did the vandal really do to his preaching efforts?

If you want to get rid of a Christian, don't martyr them, just trivialize them. Before long, they'll just move on to someone else who will be more than happy to fulfill their desire to be persecuted.


International website? The interwebs, how do they work?

But srsly, from the vid I'm laying 50:1 odds that local drunk teens or local drunk non-teens or local drunk anythings did this and was in no way an anti-religious act by concerted atheists or anybody else.

Mimic_Octopus: throwing away plastic relics of criminal organizations should be reclassified as a public service. bulldozing churches/temples/voodoo huts etc (empty, of course) would be a better step in our lifetime. you think they rose to power by asking for land and respect nicely ? no, they murdered millions of people and stole everything from land to women to governments. to really eradicate religions we will need some sort of global war. probably wont see it for a few hundred more years unfortunately.


Hm, that sounds like a good idea.

Let's kill everyone that doesn't agree with your idea of what a non-religious world should be like. That should work GREAT!

You must have watched a different video than I did because the gentleman wasn't ranting at all. In fact he was just asking that the doll be returned because of sentimental value, plus he forgave the thief.

He wasn't ranting and yelling, saying that God would strike the thief down, that the thief would go to hell for stealing. Instead he put forth a message of love and kindness.

FTA: His message to whoever stole baby Jesus is clearly posted. It reads "Whoever stole baby Jesus, put him in your heart."

"I have nothing but love and forgiveness for the person that stole it. Like I put on my sign whoever stole it, put him in your heart where it belongs," Adams noted.

Ow! That was my feelings!: FirstDennis: dudicon

Go on, what are you sayin'?


I'm saying that Christians in the US, for whatever reason, are expected to turn the other cheek and absorb abuse and criticism more than any other religious group in the US.

This is something that seems new in the past 10 years or so.

I don't understand it.

Well, in the last 30 years or so, we have seen the rise of the Christian Right in this country. A politicized version of Christianity whose adherents seek "dominion" over the USA. The backlash you feel is the result of this politicization. Leave others alone whether you agree with their beliefs or actions and you will be left alone in return.  Try to use the power of the state to advance your religious pov and you're gonna get what we have today, a nasty backlash.


30 years? Try damned near 60. These people have been at it for a very long time. It started when a born again Presbyterian president was urged to change the Pledge of Allegiance to include "Under God" in 1954. Then, not satisfied with his and thus this country's piety, he changed the national motto, originally "E Pluribus Unum" to "In God We Trust" in 1956. His lust for dominion still unsated, he decided that our currency should be emblazoned with the term as well in 1957.

Since then, we have seen countless instances of those chucklefarking steeplechasers vandalizing our public buildings with religious paraphernalia, they've installed monument after monument towards their deity in our schools, our courthouses, our libraries, military bases, public parks, even our Capitol buildings at both the State and Federal level.

But that wasn't enough for them, no not enough at all. They've been a constant and unending impediment to social progress in this country since its founding. The abolition of slavery, Women's Suffrage, the Civil Rights movement, the ending of miscegenation laws, the integration of our schools and military, workforce equality for women, even up to today with marriage equality have ALL been viciously and doggedly attacked by practically every religious leader and congregation in this country as "Welcoming God's Wrath ," and "Arrogantly betraying God's Will."

Since they successfully established a foothold in the 50's, these people have been rampaging across the country. They've been bombing federal buildings, Women's Health Clinics, Night Clubs, even the Olympics. They've been assassinating doctors. They've been terrorizing fairly thoroughly a segment of our society that comprises roughly 1/8th the population in this country. And that's just the plebes, let alone what their politicians have been doing.

They encountered another boon to their cause when a born again Christian was elected to office in 2000. They managed to get him to pass Abstinence Only education, and when called on the fact that it wasn't as effective as they lauded it would be had the gall to tell us that the programs funded weren't effective because they weren't religious enough. Let alone the institutionalized rape laws, serious abrogation of women's health rights, attempts to brainwash our children in schools by teaching creationism, and in one case making it implicitly legal to bully kids into suicide in the name of Jesus, at the state level.

And to top it off, to put a cherry on top of all this, every time the people whose uvulas they've been rather ceremoniously rogering with Jesus' cock bite down a little bit for want of air these mouthbreathing, mono-synaptic, beady-eyed yokels hem and haw, biatch and moan, wail and whine and scream at the top of their lungs about "Religious Persecution."

It's about god damned time somebody started socking these farkers back.

I think after several thousand years we need to take stronger action and publicly denounce all religions and eradicate it from the species. there are freaking billions of these crazies all over earth, you cant just ignore them. they own and run shiat with their insane organizations. Every single god worshiping religion on earth is a scourge on our civilization, an affront to all the collective hard work and pursuit of knowledge that has led to the amazing things we have accomplished, and an embarrassment to every single rational person past and present. not to mention they all either silently endorse or actually commit rape and murder people every single day.

How many more centuries do we have to pretend these bullshiat stories and criminal organizations are OK ? Religious tolerance is the biggest PC scam in history.

The Martians have kidnapped Santa Claus again? Shiat, this is getting embarassing.

Especially with all the money we pay to NORAD to keep track of the His Elfness.

Oh, well. If they don't get him back by Christmas this time, the children's letters to Santa Claus will heat Parliament for three months.

Santa Claus has his own Canadian postal code you know. It's in Montreal.

It's H0H 0H0. (Ho! Ho! Ho! Get it?)

Have the kids write a letter to Santa, at The North Pole, Canada, H0H 0H0 and see. They'll get an answer back if you post early.

Here's a simple mneumonic to remember the postal code of Parliament Hill: remember the word CHAOS.
The postal code is K1A 0A6. It's not perfect but the CH should remind you of the K1, the As are self explanatory, as is the 0, and the 6 (six) starts with S.

And the phrase "Chaos and Old Night" reminds you of the provincial code: ON, for Ontario

I don't understand it.

Matthew 5:39 is part of Christian theology.

Joking aside, and it's not all Christians, just the ones that insist the government give them special treatment and privileges in violation of the 1st Amendment, and ones that want to rewrite the Constitution, like Mike Huckabee and his ilk.

If you want to blame anyone, blame the likes of Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson.

It sucks that someone stole this baby, but I don't have a beef with the display itself. It's on private property after all.

Yeah this makes sense. There wasn't much animosity toward Christians until the evangelical movement sprang up and tried to exert a lot influence in the public sphere.

What is happening is a push back against this movement.

Simply put, Christians started it.

I was hoping the discussion would come to this conclusion, exactly what I was thinking.


Now they get a little (very little) taste of how they treated everyone else for the last 1600 years or so. And at last the rest of us can speak out without fear of the good Christians stoning, burning killing and torturing us.

Pat Robertson seems to me that he's starting to understand that present day evangelical movement is driving people away from the Christian faith. I think this understanding is more about his bottom line and less about people leaving the faith, but I am a cynic.

Clearly one of you pedants did it because he got the Nativity all wrong. From the comments:

"Maybe it's a traditionalist who thinks the Baby Jesus isn't supposed to be placed in the creche until Midnight, Christmas, when tradition (not fact, you didacts) says He was born. Most "Christians" don't even know the 12 days of Christmas begin Christmas Day and last until Epiphany, yet after decorating starting Halloween, they rip down their decorations before New Year missing some of the great party days: Boxing, Fest of St Stephen, Circumcision of Our Lord (we serve cold-cuts, btw), and Twelfth Night. We still haven't celebrated St Nicholas' Day or St Lucy's Day yet. C'mon, folks: if your going to celebrate it, at least learn about it."

/CSB time/
Reminds me of something that happened in my hometown back when I was teenager. There was a family who had a lit up Menorah in the window. I believe they were the only Jewish family in the entire neighborhood. One day, someone threw a rock at their window and stole the Menorah. The poor family was distraught. The neighborhood responded by buying the family a new Menorah and putting Menorahs in their own windows right along with the Christmas tree, as if daring the little thief to try his luck again. He didn't.
