No War on Christmas, Huh?

Facebook friends have been passing around the meme that the “War on Christmas” is just a bunch of hooey. Made up to inflame those hot headed Christianists who are likely to blow themselves up and behead folks write some very strongly written “letters to the editor” when they are upset.


So, in the “move along, nothing to see here” category, we have Santa Monica:

Unto Santa Monica a Christmas controversy was born this year. Atheists objected to the long-standing tradition of re-creating the Nativity story in a row of life-size paintings that sprawl down the Ocean Avenue edge of Palisades Park. Arguing that this was a religious display in a public park, they applied for space to offer their own message.

In an effort to be fair, the city turned to a lottery to assign 21 plots of display space — and lo, the atheists won 18 spots.

And this:

There is also a banner that reads:

[unreadable] Season of the Winter Solstice, LET REASON PREVAIL. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell; There is only our natural world. Religion is but a myth & superstition that hardens hearts & enslaves minds.

But, remember, there is no war on Christmas.

Mark Steyn says “I can’t wait to see what those courageous atheists come up with for Ramadan.”

Now, once more, repeat after me; There is no war on Christmas.

Atheists are so tolerant about Christmas that they allow Christians to enjoy their holiday have put up billboards deriding the traditions.

The Huffington Post, on the “non-war” on Christmas:

What I’d like to remind these “Christian groups” is that Christmas isn’t actually supposed to be about shopping at all. We Christians don’t need to fight to have Christmas associated with shopping, we need to fight for it not to be. You’re fighting the wrong war guys.

So let’s take a moment to remember what Christmas is really about: Christmas celebrates the story of God coming among us in the most humble of circumstances. Christ was born in a manger to a homeless teenage girl named Mary. These humble beginnings are in keeping with the ministry of Jesus which was focused on the poor, the sick, and the outcast. Jesus teaches us that the way we treat “the least of these” is how we treat him. It’s a story about God coming among us, meeting us in the middle of our need.

Which completely explains why we couldn’t put up nativity scenes in Santa Monica.

I searched the American Atheists web sight, and I didn’t see any posters relating to the myth of Islam. Funny.

    Dear atheists, libtards, communists, pc’ers and other intruders against liberty:

    Kiss my Christian ass, and Merry Christmas!

    Of course not. Islam is an ancient and reprected religion with strong historical ties to the birth and maintenence of this nation, where Christianity is a ridiculous socio-political belief system masquerading as a religion that is always cluttering the planet up with the bodies of all the people they are alwaus killing off.

    Plus, BiW, there is that unfortunate beheading stuff.

    They do have some articles critical of Islam, but apparently they do not want to advertise their opinion.

    You know. That whole DEATH TO THE INFIDEL thing.

    The only thing that bothers me as much as intolerant Christians looking for theocracy…are militant Atheists looking for Soviet government (in that they banned religion period).

    I do not subscribe to organized religion but believe in a higher power. If any season should be about peace and goodwill, it should certainly be this one. If wished good tidings, from whatever religious (or even non-religious) background, I reply in kind and take the good tidings in the manner they were intended.

    I guess I fight this “war” by not fighting….
