    This is my problem with Morons both sides.. especially this one ranting about not understanding what the fuck is going on. The Gov. is suppose to be neutral.. No religion should be higher than any other that's it.. Keep that shit away from City hall, and the courts and Public Schools.. that's it.. If Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus decide to decorate their property/houses or take up billboards celebrating whatever the fuck they believe in So be it.. If they want to open up a thematic park every year As an Atheist i'll go and pay money.. i don't care. That's not the problem.

    The more holidays the merrier! I say we incorporate all the holidays of our diverse population as long as they don't require ritual sacrifice or me having to buy flowers for the wife.

    Atheists who celebrate Christmas as a tradition do not have an integrity issue. I mean, you don't have to believe in leprechauns to enjoy St. Patrick's day.

    Please note it is not Secularists that browbeat the public into adopting "Merry Christmas" as the only "appropriate" holiday greeting, nor insist their iconography be displayed on public property at the exclusion of all others. On the contrary, it is the Christians that demand their religious traditions be acknowledged and revered, or risk being ostracized both personally and professionally for not capitulating to their tantrums.

    I feel everyone should celebrate the season in any manner they desire; therefore, forcing others to comply with a particular belief set without sufficient justification is merely cultural fascism and never to be tolerated.

    OH PLEASE. Please show me a SINGLE instance of anyone being asked NOT to celebrate Christmas, being asked to take down a nativity scene, asked to leave church, asked not to have Christmas dinner . . . . I DARE you. The 'war on Christmas' is a made-up nonsensical BS 'thing' dreamed-up by Right-Wing lunatics terrified that they may no longer have the only game in town.

    There is NO 'War on Christmas' you idiot. NO ONE is 'offended' by Christmas you sanctimonious moron. It's simply unconstitutional for THE STATE to endorse any particular religious faith. Individual citizens were, are and always will be free to do whatever the hell they want. Stop the crap you fraud.

    • Thomas Ferrugia
      Thomas Ferrugia 8 месяцев назад

      +Nathan Higgins : "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." That's been interpreted (naturally) to mean that Congress (and all governmental agencies and bodies) cannot demonstrate favoritism towards any particular religion and Constitutional protections apply to ALL citizens of the US. Once again, local municipalities cannot enact their own laws and policies that violate the Constitution by claiming "the language only applies to the Federal Government." That would be anarchy and the Constitution would be rendered meaningless. Imagine towns and Incorporated Villages flagrantly violating the Constitution by claiming they aren't bound by it? That's absurd.

      The Founding Fathers were mostly deists (look it up). They rejected many Christian doctrines and did not think 'God' interferes with the affairs of men. They advocated for teaching the bible in schools in an effort to prevent more religious atrocities.

      So, once again . . ANY private citizen remains free to do whatever he or she wants with regards to 'worship.' He or she can say "Happy Xenu Day," attend services, post displays on his or her property or engage in countless behaviors that demonstrate adherence to a faith. And, because of the Establishment Clause, no governmental agency or body my infringe on that right (nor advocate on its behalf). But NOTHING is mandatory and the 'War on Christmas' is just a conspiracy myth and a lie to stir up right-wing lunatics and divert attention from genuine issues of public concern.

    • Nathan Higgins
      Nathan Higgins 8 месяцев назад

      +Thomas Ferrugia no, I'm pretty sure all it means is Congress can't make laws or establish a national religion. If the president wants you to read your Quran, he can voice that opinion. Besides, the founding fathers wanted the Bible taught in school, you really think they wanted every level of government to adhere to the establishment clause? I'll bet they would have allowed a state to become a Muslim hell hole if it chose to be. Merry Christmas, it's mandatory.

    • Thomas Ferrugia
      Thomas Ferrugia 8 месяцев назад

      +Nathan Higgins : No. You are the one who is mistaken :-( Christmas is defined as "the annual Christian festival celebrating Christ's birth, held on December 25 in the Western Church."

      The fact that it is also a 'national' holiday (in that the government is closed) is irrelevant to its underlying doctrine. Quite frankly, the decision of the Supreme Court that Christmas is a "secular holiday" is absurd, since it requires one to believe in a religious figure's birth. 'Saying' otherwise doesn't magically make it true. You could call the sky 'the ocean' until you're blue in the face but that doesn't make clouds turn into waves. Sorry

      Constitutional interpretation mandates that ALL levels of government adhere to the Establishment Clause (as well as all other protections afforded to citizens). Otherwise, local towns could flagrantly violate the Constitution and claim they aren't bound by its language. That, of course, is absurd because it would allow any locality to enact laws violating the Constitution and simply claim they are allowed to. ALL levels of government are constrained from showing favoritism towards any one religious faith (as they should be).

    • Nathan Higgins
      Nathan Higgins 8 месяцев назад

      +Thomas Ferrugia you are clearly mistaken. Christmas is a national holiday since 1840. That's why we don't have school and federal buildings are closed. And the establishment clause prohibits congressional religious endorsement, says nothing about municipalities decorating for, and I'll say it again, a national holiday.

      I don't need proof. Im not making absurd accusations they do or do not exist. You are. The onus is upon the accuser to provide proof. You have none.

      You want proof in one hand and demand no proof in the other. Youre too dense to understand your own hypocrisy.

    • Antarctic Vortex
      Antarctic Vortex 7 месяцев назад

      Please provide proof that Unicorns, invisible dragons, fairies, trolls or hell Darth Vader do not exist? Just answer it?

      The problem with your "provide proof God doesn't exist. Oh, you can't?" question is there is no answer because there is no proof that a GOD does exist.

      I know you're not a "bible thumper" as quoted "Im not a bible thumper but Im sure not an atheist." but clearly you believe something so once again...You are the one making the claim therefore it is YOU who must provide proof. I cannot disprove anything if there is nothing to disprove.

      Example...I have access to youtube..what is my proof?? I'm chatting with you here on a video here on youtube...see how easy that is.

    • Despiser Despised
      Despiser Despised 7 месяцев назад

      +Dark Helmet You're very dense. Dense is boring and repetitive.

      Atheism and skepticism are two entirely different things. That you conveniently lump them together doesn't make it logical. Your version of circular logic isn't actually logic at all. Ill assume you have never heard of a Truth Table before.

      Atheism is faith based. If you disagree please provide proof God doesn't exist. Oh, you can't?

      I would say you're the opposite of "fact based" as you vend your religion of Atheism in the same manner the church vends religion

    • Antarctic Vortex
      Antarctic Vortex 7 месяцев назад

      Wow. AGAIN...DO YOU READ??

      ...and again
      Faith 1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

      I have no trust or confidence in anything that is not supported by evidence, like every religion...ever. So your argument that atheism/skepticism is faith based is invalid and just grasping at straws.

      Logic 1. reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity.

      Validity 1. the quality of being logically or factually sound; soundness or cogency.

      Notice the word factual?? Science is based on fact...religion is not.

    But, truly, there is no "war on christmas." The USA will never ban Christmas, like they did a century ago. The economy of the nation is too dependent on Christmas. If Xmas were removed, the USA would become a third-world country before the new year.

    So the corporations will never allow a war on Christmas

      Despiser Despised so you are saying a brain with far greater cognitive abilities according to science is "retarded". Interesting, by the way I'm not 26, I just understand basic biology. The brain stops developing in your early to mid 20s, you might argue that a 16 year old is " retarded" as their frontal lobe and empathy centers haven't fully developed, but its a stretch. The mental degradation of brains over time is fairly understood by now. You can't get smarter just by existing longer, it doesn't work like a fucking children's video game. Even though I'm past that age I'm not going to try make myself feel better by pretending I'm wiser for fucking aging, I mean you are actually joking right?
