“War on Christmas” bullshit ramps up

Oh, so this totally isn't religious indoctrination? Thank God! I'm beginning to think it's totally impossible to do anything secular in America without some religious jackass accusing us of waging a "War on Christmas". This pathetic attempt to make Christians appear marginalized has the effect of making them all look like old fools, if you ask me. When there's any kind of story that exploits this fear monge ...

The Salvation Army exec who stole Christmas

I hate the Salvation Army. First off, they aren't a charitable organization. They are registered as a church, which means while some of the money and goods people give to them do go to the needy, they still run it like it is a business, buying expensive real estate, and more importantly, being exempt from needing to show where it uses its money and for what. Don't believe me? Take a look at their mission st ...

The origins of Christmas

The Thinking Atheist is doing their part in helping you fire back at annoying Christians trying to make it seem as though they invented people celebrating the Winter Solstice. Normally, I don't really care to correct them, but it seems that this whole "War on Christmas" just keeps getting more annoying. There is a point where you have to send them back to schools with a few facts. ...

Shoot Santa in the face this Christmas

Remember "Repent Armarillo"? They're that super scary militia group that goes around harassing gays, lesbians, and anyone else who doesn't believe in their religious nonsense. They have a new video out where they shoot an effigy of Santa Claus in an effort to get everyone to get back to the "fundamentals" of Christmas. I guess that includes using automatic weapons to feel powerful and strong. Nothing quite ...

War on swine reaches UK toy store

Toy store "Early Learning Center" in the UK has removed the plastic pigs in their children's toy farm out of fear it might offend Jewish and Muslim parents. Of course, "Happyland" still contains the sty, complete with a button that makes an oinking sign when pressed. Talk about confusing! Luckily, some people have their heads screwed on right (well, mostly): Fellow Muslim mum Natasha added: "If you don't wa ...

I knew it, Christmas IS evil!

More on the War on Christmas, and this time, it's not coming from us filthy atheists. Anjem Choudary is a Muslim chairman for the Society of Muslim Lawyers, and preaches on the corrupt influence Christmas apparently has on Muslims. Now it's one thing to dislike a holiday, but it's another entirely to decree yuletide festivities are a 'pathway to hellfire'. You gotta love these brimstone and hellfire guys. T ...

Are you offended by “Merry Christmas”?

My early memories of Christmas involved dreaming about what presents would be waiting for me under the tree when I awoke. I also remember the occasional disappointment over the sweater or sock in my stocking, but generally despite the usual selfishness of children, the experience was fun and enjoyable. Like most of my friends, we celebrated Christmas for the presents, and although the story of Jesus was nev ...

Christians are crybabies

I'm sure most of you have heard Christians trying in vain to defend themselves regarding the tenents of their faith, arguing just because they believe in the supernatural, doesn't mean they are idiots. It's true stupid beliefs don't automatically make you dumb, but to be fair, they doesn't exactly make you look like a genius, does it? The "War on Christmas" as Christians like to call it, is starting to heat ...
