RE: Just leave Christmas the fuck alone.
Christmas isnt about Jesus anymore.

Its about spending money.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

RE: Just leave Christmas the fuck alone.
The issue has NOTHING to do with the Holiday or its Message or Meaning.

Its 100% about the Constitution and Tax Payers dollars.
The quicker folks understand that the better.
When someone bitches about Xmas stuff like this i simply ask them would they support tax payer services supporting Ramadan.
David Silverman blew a perfect opportunity on Bill O by arguing the way he did. Tea Baggers and Many GOP hold the constitution in such high reguard....so when they turn their sights on Atheists and the imaginary war on Xmas.....the best and only reply should be 100% PRO US CONSTITUTION!

Or making people say 'Happy Holidays' because "Merry Christmas" isn't PC enough.

It's Bull. Shit.

So they have a parade? so fucking what? So do the Irish on Saint Patty's day. So do the gays with their prancing around going "yay for dick" shit. The Chinese have their New Years (which btw is far more badass then Christmas, I'm just sayin.)
Just let the Christians have their little shitty holiday.

Just because as Atheists we don't have a holiday doesn't mean we need to be disrespectful and ruin it for them.

Now don't get it twisted, I think there is a difference between "protest" and.. promoting Atheism, but petitioning public Christmas shit is just so.. petty IMO.
Again, where's the Atheist petitions against the gay pride shit?

"But muffs, it's using public space and public taxes blah blah blah"
So? In America there is a HUGE majority of Christians, does that then not make sense to spend money on that majority?
ie: Taxes pay for roads, but not everybody uses roads. What about the people that walk everywhere? There's heaps of public financed services 100% of the population don't use.

My point is, just because we don't have a holiday shouldn't mean that we don't want them to have theirs.

tl;dr Have some fucking respect. Even if you don't respect the religion, respect that it is their right to believe in that shit.

Amendment I:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion

But If you want some respect, then we should have Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, and Festivus displays along side every christian display on government property.

Also you should note that by making christmas a federal holiday it violates the first amendment.

RE: Just leave Christmas the fuck alone.
earmuffs after this post, I respect you a lot. When people put down Christmas because they're not religious upsets me. If you don't like it, ignore it. Stay indoors, make some coffee, watch Stephen King movies, and being a mother-fucking Scrooge to yourself. Anyways, this post rocks.

This whole backwards redneck logic of why folks from WI come to our perfect little quite TX town is the height of stupidity. Its like arguing with a 3 year old.

This whole Victim Outsider mentality stuff is insane.
High Profile Atheists need to keep their battles in court and NOT on Fox. The Brainless Overpaid Fox nimwits dont let anyone finish a sentence, they bring them on to beat them up in order to hope for a sensational soundbyte that will become the buzz of the day. Atheist like Dan Barker and Silverman need to do their talking THRU the court systems. They are wasting their time on Faux Noise.

I agree with that assertion. Fox Noise is not a place most atheists should tread into.

Oddly after Earmuffs post, i had less respect for the fella. To me it shows a total lack of understanding what the court cases are all about.
Its not about being a scrooge. Its about upholding the constitution. No where have i ever heard an Atheist want to simply BAN Christmas and all its festivities....only the Early Puritans and Catholic church have DONE THAT.
Christians could invent a 1000 more holidays based on their characters....it would not bother me one iota...but when they have a Joseph Day sanctioned by the US Governemnt and a Moses statue on the lawn of the court house for Parting the Red Sea Day...THEN its a problem.
