Well, that's... special.
 
2013-12-01 12:14:53 AM
I thought we couldn't say Happy Holidays anymore because of the War On Christmas™.
 
2013-12-01 12:15:29 AM
Thanks!  We pretty do just get together with family and have a good time. And celebrate the fact we're not passive-aggressive slack-jawed inbreds like you.  Quite a relief, really.
 
2013-12-01 12:23:12 AM
And a Merry Christmas to you too you knuckle-dragging fundie douchebag.

Maybe he said it in jest.

No?

I know it has taken on a pejorative loading over the centuries, that I'm sure he's aware of but doesn't care about, but technically all that is is just a redundant statement. He basically just said "all you atheistic atheists." The thing that struck me as particularly stupid is "whatever you celebrate." Dude, Christmas hasn't been about the Christ's birth since forever, given that a large number of biblical scholars put the birth of Jesus closer to summer than winter, but recognize the marketing importance of celebrating around the Winter Solstice (i.e. to help convince Romans to make the switch to Christianity as they already celebrated Saturnalia around the Winter Solstice anyway). Christmas has, especially in our lifetimes, been almost entirely about commercialization and materialism on the one hand, and our own personal relationships with our families and friends on the other. Pretending that atheists, agnostics, and pretty much any non-Christian can't get down on either of those is more insulting than calling us infidels. At least, in my opinion. Others are likely to have other equally valid opinions and reactions to this.

Nothing says bold and inspired leadership like pandering to your mouth breathing constituents.

Merry ripped off pagan winter solstice holiday, religious zealot.

Sad thing there is that's a Canadian Conservative trying NOT to look like a douchebag.

If I celebrate Christmas but don't go to church and don't talk about Jesus, am I really just celebrating Saturnalia?

Only if you get shiatfaced.  Keep the Baccus in Saturnalia, or something.

Thank you! :) Santa Claus is a super fun way to chase away those lonely, embittered, hate-the-world blues. And don't get me started on Easter! Hint: He's a bunny! WOOHOO!

American conservatives never call us infidels anymore. They didn't even notice that I got my hair done or these new jeans....

Maybe it's for emphasis, like the super-bad atheists who have cross-shaped dildos.

This atheist is enjoying selling Christmas oriented materials. We'll get the religion out Christmas yet.

Kome: He basically just said "all you atheistic atheists."


Fart_Machine: Isn't infidel atheist redundant?


Well, yes and no. All atheists are by definition infidels, but not all infidels are atheists. From the perspective of a fundie Christian, many theists are also infidels. So he's actually singling out atheists as the particular infidels he's insulting, rather than any of the various infidel theists.
 
2013-12-01 01:09:11 AM
Since there is nobody who claims "al-Qaeda leader" as a title, and Ayatollah Khomenei has been dead for several decades, this was a really bad question, subby.
 
2013-12-01 01:09:55 AM
Progressive Conservative Leader (and former MP) Brian Pallister wish everybody a happy holidays, including "all you infidel atheists out there."

It's not often that you find an oxymoron and a redundancy in the same sentence.

Maybe it's "progressive" in the "tedious and insufferable" sense, like in "progressive rock".

I have way more fun that that asshat over the holidays.
 
2013-12-01 01:16:44 AM
Even though he obviously intended it as a barb, he immediately began apologetically backtracking.

"Happy holidays, all you infidel atheists... and... I mean... um, you know, whatever you celebrate... I'm not sure, but hopefully you have a good time... really, I don't have any problem with... uh... I don't dislike anyone, because... you see, as a Canadian... um, forget everything I just said, what I meant was, uh, that to what them and such as the Iraq..."
 
2013-12-01 01:23:16 AM

The PCs used to be pretty cool, at least in Ontario, until they merged with the Canadian Alliance to form the Conservative Party. MacKay screwed over all of the red Tories, David Orchard, and all of Canada in order to gain political power on the federal level.

Screw Peter MacKay, screw Stephen Harper, screw the Tories, and screw the Liberals. The only party in Canada worth voting for is the NDP. I like Justin Trudeau, but his party lost the public trust and I could not, in good conscience, support them.

/American

Pretty-much, yes.  The religious fundamentalism isn't as normal or ubiquitous as Mississippi, though.  Just remember, it's all relative.

Wasn't there brief moment when they were known as the "Conservative Reform Alliance Party" before someone noticed the acronym and changed it to just CP?

Saturnalia involves a lot more drinking and ritual sex and parading through the streets in historically unspecified costumes implied to be mostly states of undress and so on, so... maybe?

Heh....He blithely put the moron in oxymoron.

No. You're just celebrating an extra-special time with your family...which you probably should do more than once a year anyway.

I am glad that we're finally starting to chip away at the indefensible Christmas holiday.

Some of us aren't Christians, and we find the ultra-corporatist guilt trip that everyone "has" to buy a gift or else to be annoying and frankly a guilt control trip. We need to take a big step back from it as a society and question as to what we're really doing, and whether it suggests a sustainable future.

Should we say thanks or we are sorry?

So, thinking of your loved ones and buying a gift for someone is bad?  So what if its a particular day of the year?
 
2013-12-01 02:28:13 AM
For me, if I'm greeted with Merry Christmas I respond with the same. Same with any holiday. I don't start off with it as a greeting because frankly, I don't care about the religious holidays. I don't belive in your religion because I have none. I'm an infidel and a heathen and damn proud of it...
