    Re: Atheists take aim at Christmas

    I said this in another thread but it deserves to be said here, too. It is a nice change from last year in the way the atheists are approaching this topic. I'm glad the topic is being discussed more reasonably. Maybe the "war" will be over with a good end: everyone going back to wishing each other happiness and good cheer this time of year.

    Sure they should. However, specifically targeting Christian places of worship and nativity scenes and belitting their celebrations is probably NOT the smartest way to do it.

    I respect the rights of athiests to believe that they believe and to publicly espouse it. Of course, I also with them no ill will. However, their tactics at times have been classless. As a devout Catholic, I do resent that some.

    As have I, in the past. However, jackassery on one side does not excuse jackassery from the other. And this year (and believe me, after my crusade last year, I watched the issue closely), I saw the Christians preemptively declare the war on Christmas.

    I quit watching O'Reilly over it. And I used to love to watch Bill O'Reilly.

    Re: Atheists take aim at Christmas

    I would like to apologize, on behalf of the Atheist Clan, for the Silly Sign **** being propagated by Our People, as referenced in this thread and elsewhere. I propose a cease-fire and alliance: We can join forces; a coalition of unlikely partners to battle against both the atheist Silliness notated here, as well as the Christian Silliness expressed in the 'Happy Holidays' thread. Together, we can make the world a less silly place! (except for in the places that we like for it to be silly)

    Great post.

    The way to beat extremists are folks from both sides joining together and stomping them. As I have said many times, in many different venues, if the moderates of a group attack the extremists of that same group, this act generates more power than attacks coming from the other side. It shows the lack of credibility that the extremists have.

    As a Christian "crusader", I would like to not only thank you with an inane "thanks", but thank you personally for making such an appropriate post about the idiocy of both sides over an issue that should only incite happiness and good will at this time of year.

    Happy hannachristmakwanzakaamhadan to everyone here on the forum.

    In other words, "Be well this next year."

    I thank God every day for atheists.

    If it weren't for the atheists, Christian loonies would long ago have shoved crosses down everyone's throat and up everyone's wazzoo.
