Merry Christmas, My Atheist Friend

Re: protesters who feel they need to tear down every symbol of Christmas in a public place. I hate to make a post that just says: “Ayuh. What she said.” But she put it so perfectly, so whaddya do…

I’m as opposed as the next liberal to judges putting up the Ten Commandments in defiance of court orders, prayer in public schools, and idiotic pronouncements that Christianity ought to be the state religion, but gimme a break. Don’t get your panties in a wad because you can’t see the forest for the Christmas trees.

    I’m uber anti-organized religion and I don’t give a crap about Christmas decorations. The reason is that Christmas isn’t really about the religious aspect anymore — it’s total commercialism. Santa and reindeer have absolutely nothing to do with the whole manger thing. If you celebrate for religious reasons, fine — go about your business. But for an awful lot of people it’s either secondary or not important at all.

  2. Yeesh… I guess in some people’s cases they’re not happy unless they have something to complain about. I loved Chrismas as a kid, and once I had kids, it became magical all over again as an adult. In the sucky years in between, I just let people enjoy themselves. Not everything is about me, you know.

    If you ask me, we don’t have enough “Peace on Earth; Good will toward all” going on.
