Grimlock2099: They should do an "Amalie" and send the church pictures of the baby Jesus in different places all over the world. Half tempted to send them a new one with a note saying "Merry Christmas from an atheist, we are mostly good people"


Nah. The funniest would be to take a picture of him in The Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem with a note saying, "Felt homesick. Will return soon. -XOXO"

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?


oh you're so dark and edgy!

My parents gave me a nativity set a few years ago even know they knew I was an atheist ( I don't really consider myself an atheist much anymore but rather a panpsychist). I wanted to throw the whole thing away but my wife, who also isn't a christian but does consider herself spiritual, thought it looked nice. She enjoys the Christmas season.

So I compromised and when she wasn't paying attention, I threw baby Jesus in the trash.

Semantic Warrior: lilistonic: 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."

I didn't even read the article's comments, but was looking for this here. This is why the Baby J.C. and the manger aren't just fused together....

It's only a matter of time, though, before Nativity scenes will be out so early that Jesus will have a costume on Halloween


I don't have a dog in this fight, but when I was a kid, I was a real stickler for that, probably annoyingly so. I'd have the shepherds advancing step by step along the fireplace hearth.

Now I think I'd just see the whole tableau as a symbol for the day, which people like to look at all month, so why not enjoy the whole picture at once? It's just a representation of it, rather than a literal recreation.

Gyrfalcon: MBrady: moulderx1: Whose turn was it to watch the kid?

They must not have been true Christians, because everyone knows - well, except the college kids living in mommy's basement - that since Jesus doesn't arrive until December 25th, you don't put baby Jesus out in the manger.

Where do you put him then? In a box?


Seems obvious.

FirstDennis: Imagine, for a moment, that someone vandalized or stole items from a A) Muslim religious display; or a B) Jewish religious display; or a C) Hindu religious display; or a D) Bhuddist religious display; or a E) Kwanza religious display, etc. etc.

I'm just sayin'.


I imagine the Christian did it, what do I win?

OK, I imagined all of these. Do I win a prize?
