Call the Winter Festival whatever you like. Celebrate it however you like.

It's about sharing light and warmth to help each other make it through the long dark winter. That's why all the lights and decorations and goodies and presents.

If you have a specific belief system that places additional myths in front of the Winter Festival backdrop, that's all well and good, but you don't get to insist on adding your myths to my Festival, just like I don't get to insist that you put cool whip on your pumpkin pie.

/If you have to add cool whip to distract from the flavor of your pumpkin pie, you're eating bad pie

If there was a Christ, he wasn't born in winter. A winter solstice celebration and the traditions of drinking, feasting, caroling, gift-giving, yule logs, bringing evergreen trees indoors, and decorating with red and green all predate Christianity. If the Jesus People want to complain about "the war on Christmas", they ought to at least be aware that they first usurped the holiday in a political power-grab.

ox45tallboy: WorldCitizen: Same here. As someone who holds no religious beliefs, I quite enjoy Christmas. I don't really see what snowmen, Santa Claus, decorated pine trees, lights everywhere, and spending time and giving with friends and family has to do specifically with the birth of Jesus or even Christianity as a whole.

When Christian people ask why I have a Christmas tree if I'm an atheist, I like to point out that the Christmas tree is pagan such as is described in Jeremiah 10:2-4:


This is my new favorite Bible verse!!! How have I not know this? Thank you!

that is precisely my point... Christmas has nothing to do with Christ. It was co-opted by the Catholic church from the Pagan winter festival... so why don't Atheists attack that faith... the largest market by far... I wonder... maybe it just wouldn't be as popular to attack Santa and those ebil Christmas trees.

If you can only afford bad tasting pie, why not make the pie instead? A small pumpkin hardly costs anything, and a decent vanilla ice cream only a few bucks (for in the pie, not on the pie), and pre-made pie crusts are like 2 for $1.50. There's a bit of seasonings and spices in it, sure, but I'd have to ask my lady what they are, as she does the actual making of the pie

ox45tallboy: "You know, what do you do with a bully?" he explained. "If a bully keeps getting his way and intimidating kids on the playground and nobody stands up for themselves then the bully is encouraged and emboldened and continues to bully more and more people.

The author is right. Atheists should stand up to people who demand that everyone else live their lives a certain way because "God said so". Every time the Christians win some kind of battle like transvaginal ultrasounds or what not, they become encouraged and emboldened and go for things like demanding Creationism be taught in science class.

I like this author. He makes pretty good points.


Yeah I was really wondering if he understood the irony of what he was saying. Probably not.

So far as I recall, its accepted by most churches that his exact birth date isn't known.
They moved the holidays around to adapt with the Pagan cultures they were trying to convert.

HindiDiscoMonster: I don't know how to break this to you... but I see quite a bit more Pagan decoration during Christmas than Christian... how come no Atheists attack those displays and demand the removal (from public lands) displays of Christmas trees, Santa, or other Pagan symbols... how come only Christians get the hate? Seems to me, you should attack the largest market - Pagan symbols.


Nobody worships Santa, you dolt.
 
2012-12-11 08:13:11 AM
apatheist right here enjoys Christmas.

Even though my mom's Catholic, my parents always stressed the importance of focusing on charity, family, forgiveness and thankfulness. It was not much about the birth of Jesus on the Mose homestead, but more about celebrating and extoling the virtues associated with the man. That always seemed like the right priority, anyway. The world could definitely do with more of that.

Befuddled: FTA: Conservative Christian radio host Matt Barber says that an atheist group should be punched "in the mouth" after they filed a complaint that sought to stop a Michigan man from erecting a nativity scene on public land.

Why can't the religious assholes get it through their teeny little brains that if they want to put up a religious 'whatever', do it on private property and nobody will have a problem with it. The religious assholes keep trying to push the bounds, to try to make their religion basically endorsed by the government.


As an atheist, I have to say the proper response to this isn't complaining and trying to get the nativity scene removed from public land... Instead, they should've sought to place their own counter-display on the same public land... After all, it is public land, for us all to use... Let the Christians put up a display, and let the Jews, the Muslims, the Scientologists, the Wiccans, and the atheists put one up as well... The poor oppressed Christians like this guy will still complain, probably even louder, but they'll just look foolish and bitter... Instead, when complaining about stuff like this, they look righteous... Doing stuff like this just feeds their persecution complex...

/Plus, it's just a really stupid and trivial thing to worry about in the first place...
//It's like some atheists these days are developing the same persecution complex...
///Having to see a farking nativity scene isn't oppressing your lack of belief!

Here's some more fun facts about this asshole:

- Has said that gay male relationships constitute "one man violently cramming his penis into another man's lower intestine and calling it 'love'"

- Has called President Barack Obama an "anti-American" "enemy" who is "determined to destroy America"

- Of a lesbian couple's parental decisions for their transgender child, said: "We shouldn't be surprised that we see this kind of child abuse and brainwashing when we allow children to be placed intentionally in motherless or fatherless homes that model disordered sexual behavior and push the false notion that human sexuality is somehow androgynous," adding that the kid is "the poster child against the unconscionable practice of legalized so-called 'gay adoption.'"

- Routinely uses words like "purveyors of evil" or "satanic" (1:19 in video clip) to refer to his political opponents

- Said Ellen DeGeneres "guides her many adoring housewife fans into rebellion against God's divine and explicit natural order"

- Claims that by supporting LGBT viewers, media outlets are trying "to make the absurd appear reasonable and normal" (0:46 - 0:51)

- Says gays make up violence "as a Trojan Horse to force, to compel nations and individuals and groups and churches that embrace traditional values, relative to sexual behavior, to push them into the closet and say 'no, no, you have to adopt a full affirmation of these perversions.'"

- Says gay rights presents a "clear and present danger" and "internationally the greatest threat" (58:27-59:00)


Total farking scumbag. Also, he appears on FoxNews now and then, no surprise there.

Color me another atheist that likes the holidays. But also one that is fully behind the idea that if jesusy ppl get to put up holiday displays on publicly owned land, so can everyone else. Period.

I personally dream of a day(I probably won't live to see), when Christianity(and the rest of abrahamic, revealed truth desert religions) are talked about the same way we talk about Zeus and Thor. Fantasies of a primitive people in a primitive time. I look forward to belief in Jesus being as ridiculous a proposition as prostrating yourself to Poseidon.

Stop poisoning humanity with the taint of your horrible chalcolithic sky shamanism.

But all that aside, go Christmas. Loving the lights this year, more ppl moving to LEDs.

Schroedinger's Glory Hole: No bullshiat, there I was six clicks south of the bombed out remains of a Wendy's when I realized it. We weren't going home, the Christmas Wars will never end. I blame the traitors. The secularists pushed their "Holiday War" agenda too far, sucking in the most vocal of all Christians, Kanye West. "Money talks, Jesus walks" he said before executing Santa on the steps of Capitol Hill. That was eight years ago. Christmas is mostly a legend now, nobody is alive that remembers time before the war. Except me. I remember hiding every year with my family as we tried to come up with methods of subversive deception. We'd make gingerbread 9/11s and sing carols by morse code. I even shaved a Crèche into my pubic hair. If we just had the fortitude to punch them in the mouth when we had the chance.

You're perpetuating a war on Christmas if:

- You're not a Christian yet you think you should have the same right they do to use public land to air your opinions

- You say anything other than "Merry Christmas" to anybody as both a salutation and valediction during the entire month of December

- You dare to even be aware of the exceptional level of absurdity involved with Christians making such a huge stink about a date arbitrarily chosen as the alleged birth of their savior while making much less of a deal about that whole "actually becoming the savior" thing that supposedly happened in the spring

- You dare to suggest that very few people actually give a flying rat turd about the whole stupid concept of a war on Christmas since the vast majority of people just use the time as a nice winter holiday to relax at home with their family anyway and almost nobody in the entire country gives even half a fark about whatever Bill O'Reilly's current outrage from Podunk, Nowhere is tonight.

Because that would require a nuanced understanding of other people and other cultures and a fundamental respect for others' right to do as they will. No way we have the time and resources to put into that kind of rational solution. "War on %target" is much easier for the ignorant to consume.
