Prey4reign: Here's an ironic fact about Christmas -- the man considered the George Washington of Pakistan, Muhammed Ali Jinnah, was born on December 25th, 1876.
ToxicMunkee: This year the Christmas season started before most people were done eating their Thanksgiving dinner. The War on Christmas is a lie.
St_Francis_P: Dead for Tax Reasons: ToxicMunkee: This year the Christmas season started before most people were done eating their Thanksgiving dinner. The War on Christmas is a lie.Thanksgiving?Halloween is starting to feel threatenedCan Decemberween be far behind?
ParaHandy: Prey4reign: Here's an ironic fact about Christmas -- the man considered the George Washington of Pakistan, Muhammed Ali Jinnah, was born on December 25th, 1876.Isaac Newton, one the most famous scientists ever, was also born on Xmas day.
UsikFark: Man, I want Christmas sex. Stupid protestant moral crusaders.
gad: Atheists are doing what they need to do to be heard and to gain some position in the society.
letrole: Atheism is a Religion.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: UsikFark: Man, I want Christmas sex. Stupid protestant moral crusaders.I hear subby's mom is available.
bunner: gad: Atheists are doing what they need to do to be heard and to gain some position in the society.Why? what has "society" fixed lately? What has it enforced that it should? Where has evolved positively? What has it sone well or improved upon? I think that everybody who has picked up their chosen Certificate of Disenfranchisement™ actually thinks that there's some dandy, Über normal cocktail party going on somewhere and that as soon as they have successfully pissed and moaned and marched for "ABSOLUTE, UNQUESTIONING, UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE", that they'll be patted on the back and given a comfy chair and a martini. I hate to piss in your petunias, but the nebulous construct of "the people who run things" is astoundingly inaccurate, has nothing to do with religion, sexuality or color and they still ain't going to like you and most of them don't like each other. So stop trying to get a gold star from the people you insist oppress and loathe you. It makes you look silly.
ccundiff: I would bet that the most militant and reactionary atheists are generally those who were brought up with religion. This is of course based on my own anecdotal experience. Everyone that I know who has been brought up agnostic/atheist/secular celebrates Christmas with their families and lets religion alone. The real reactionaries I know were those who were brought up religious and later rejected it.Does anyone know if this correlation has been shown to exist?
Rufus Lee King: If you want to be an atheist, be an atheist.However, the "HEY, EVERYBODY!!! LOOKIT ME!!! I'M AN ATHEIST!!!" thing is best left out.No one cares about your personal problems.
Allen. The end.: You forgot 'how is babby formed'!
The One True TheDavid: St_Francis_P:And they must be stoppedUhm...why?Speaking as a religion-hating atheist, I really don't care what people believe. What bothers me being beaten up by commercialism: I'd rather those few "Christians" who really care about the alleged birthday of their man-god do all they can to make the yearly shopping frenzy unfashionable.Have your candlelit services, pass out Advent calendars, pray in public (as long as its voluntary: you don't want us to force you NOT to pray, do you?), wish each other (and even me) any goddamn thing you want, but for chrissake stop shopping if you truly love Jesus! You're welcome to picket against "Xmas shopping" in the public areas of shopping malls: I'll defend to the death your right to do so, I might even join you with a sign reading "An atheist against Xmas SHOPPING." And hey, if anarchists can break windows at Starbuck's then y'all can trash a Macy's for all I care. As long as you don't make celebrating the birth of your savior mandatory, please please please contrast religious observance with all that worship of Mammon.And don't get me started on the goyification of Hanukkah. If there is no Jewish holiday where gift-giving is holy then there are always a few hundred secular days to do it on: every Jew has a birthday, for example, even if s/he's not the messiah.SHOP LESS, PRAY MORE!
Gato Blanco: Atheism is a lack of belief in a deity. Some religions are atheistic, but atheism itself is not a religion. It's like saying stamp collecting is a hobby, therefore not collecting stamps is also a hobby.
bunner: Allen. The end.: You forgot 'how is babby formed'!No, you're just oppressing me for my alternative typing style. Ever notice how memes allow you to dismiss somebody out of hand by just being a schoolyard smartass? At least they're supposed to. : )
Rufus Lee King: Seriously, though, you "atheist" types: what's the deal with trying to rain on people's parades? It's infantile, and speaks volumes about you. Shut the f__k up.
St_Francis_P: And they must be stoppedUhm...why?
Gato Blanco: It's like saying stamp collecting is a hobby, therefore not collecting stamps is also a hobby.
St_Francis_P: Vodka Zombie: St_Francis_P: And they must be stoppedUhm...why?Because JESUS!!!You're right, of course. Atheists never stop to consider Jesus.
vpb: "Here's the bottom line: Where religion is weak, atheism is weak" in its intensity, says Pitzer sociologist Phil Zuckerman. "Where religion is strong, atheism is strong."This organized Atheism thing is just a reaction to obnoxious bible thumpers.
kingoomieiii: I really hope they come through. Christmas farking blows. An entire perfectly good week, destroyed.
gerrymander: St_Francis_P: And they must be stoppedUhm...why?Because they're douchebags trying to stop a reason to party. They want to destroy other people's fun, for no better reason than 'the character is fictional'.Imagine a world where people everywhere celebrated 'Harry Potter's Birthday', and parents decorated their houses in Hogwarts dioramas and lit-up Whomping Willows, and the kids got gifts from a guy dressed as Dumbledore. Now imagine how big of an a-hole you'd need to be to complain that the parties should stop because 'Harry Potter' doesn't exist, and to erect billboards mocking Harry Potter's Birthday parties. Well, that's how these 'atheist' (more accurately, 'anti-theists') look.
letrole: gad: Atheists are doing what they need to do to be heard and to gain some position in the society.bunner: So stop trying to get a gold star from the people you insist oppress and loathe you. It makes you look silly.Atheists demand respect and expect acceptance of their beliefs. Atheists feel dirty inside. All the anger, the forced arrogance, the belligerence -- it's simply shame turned inside out.
had98c: In this alternate world do people worship Harry Potter as a god and base their views on same sex marriage on lines from The Goblet of Fire?
Shazam999: I wonder if atheists know that many churches contain a great amount of really nice, easy pussy. Nice young pussy too.

Shazam999: You live in a country where free speech is sacrosanct
bunner: I AM NOT GOING TO STAND FOR ALL OF THIS STAMP COLLECTING! STAMP COLLECTORS ARE IDIOTS AND YOU CAN'T COLLECT STAMPS WITHIN 500 FEET OF ME!Get it?
