Ah yes. I've seen that before. I wish I could have just switched places and argued with his mother. I don't get to argue much being in NZ..

I've seen it. Sadly that's how some parents and family members react.

RE: Parents threaten their athiest child with no christmas
That honestly made me sick. My whole family is Jewish atheist/agnostic theist and we celebrate Christmas.

"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing". "But," says man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It proves you exist and so therefore you don't. QED." "Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

I'm amazed at how little Christians actually know about the history of Christmas in the US, much less the world.

RE: Parents threaten their athiest child with no christmas
As far as parents loosing their shit when a child comes out unexpectedly it was a little tame. From the responses I was expecting fire and pea soup. And it's a little out of context... ok, it's a lot out of context.

I knew a guy once. A Francophone from Montreal. He grew up in a unilingual nationalist separatist Quebecois home. When he was 16 he told his parents that he wanted to learn how to speak English. The promptly threw him out of the house and out of their lives. Now that is some irrational parental freak out action.

It sucks that some parents can't accept their children's life-choices (or life-pre-destinations). I hope this family works things out.

Peace and Love and Empathy,

Matt

RE: Parents threaten their athiest child with no christmas
Wow, what a perfect Christian. Confused First she threatens Michael with no material items come December 25th, attempting to appeal to his greed for gifts. And she then says Jesus is what Christmas is all about. Putting Jesus second, while throwing no gifts up as a threat first.

Good thing the Bishop, nor any parishioners of her church, don't have a computer. Angel

Too bad it doesn't mention that Dec 25th was a pagan holiday that Christianity adopted for Jesus.
