Lock and Load! It’s the War on Christmas!!!
Posted by Jeff on December 17, 2008
So apparently another atheist sign was stolen from a holiday display, this time in IL. I think all this shit is pretty funny, actually. Christians everywhere are bitching a la Fox News and Bill O’Reilly and apparently some of them find larceny to be the best approach to solving the matter. Face the facts people, if you allow such a thing as a nativity scene to be displayed on government property then you open yourself up to have OTHER views displayed as well. Maybe even ones you disagree with! Suck it the hell up! Atheists are not waging a War on Christmas®. They just want to call attention to the fact that the government is and should be kept secular. The exact same response would be found if it was a Ramadan or a Hanukkah display in the Capitol Building!
One thing that does bug me about this article, though, is this quote from Annie Laurie Gaylor:
“Atheists never engage in vandalism. We don’t go around stealing the Baby Jesus. They don’t follow their own commandments.”
Really Gaylor? Really??? What an outrageous blanket statement. Who the hell is she to say what all atheists never do? I know for a fact thatbaby Jesuses (Jesusees? Jesi? Jesees?) do go missing from nativity scenes. It’s awfully presumptuous to assume that NONE of them were taken by even one atheist.
