Fellow Atheists! The War on Christmas is at hand!

Our mortal enemy, Pat Robertson, is quaking in his boots!

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/robertson-miserable-atheists-trying-steal-christmas



That's right, we atheists are a bunch of grinches out to steal happiness! We must spread our misery to others!

Are you having fun yet?

1. Oh, drat! And me with my War on Christmas armor out at the cleaners!

Why do we have to start the War on Christmas earlier every year?

3. So, now I have to be miserable during the holidays?

Just because I don't buy into the mythology that ole' Pat promotes, doesn't mean that I can't enjoy the happiness of the season with friends and family.

9. A meeting!?!?! We had a meeting???? I didn't get an invitation!

No wonder I'm so damned cheerful about Christmas. I feel like a real doofus now.

6. I still have Halloween decorations up & four more pumpkins in the garage for carving.

Halloween isn't going anywhere until after New Year's.

Doing my part to fight the War on Xmas!

7. I just hung my Green Man

and started planning my solstice decor (for my "old-time religion" friends and neighbors)! What can I say? I'm kind that way.

The old fart must be spying on me. Again.

When I buy the pine tree and hang the shiny round witch balls on it, he'll really come after me.

Jeez, what a money-making crock. All he's lacking is a THIS WAY TO THE EGRESS tattoo on his forehead.

10. I would love to make a tree like this, but with a little house,

two cats & a big dog, I'm not sure it would work out.

12. I am unlocking this thread. It was the overwhelming consensus of hosts it is the right thing to do.

I opened a thread in the hosts group to poll as many hosts from as many forums as wished to weigh in on this lock. It wasn't even close.

In view of that, this thread is again open

15. Between Robertson and O'Reilly...

Those two have a "War On Christmas" fetish that is difficult to believe exists.

18. Maybe Robertson and O'Reilly can have a war with each other

Then the rest of us can get on with our lives. I am very tired of the war on Christmas jibberish.

19. WhatdoIdo? WhatdoIdo?? I want to do my part on the WOC (War on Christmas)

but this atheist is flummoxed and needs help from the committee

I've already sorted and tested all my decoration lights, ready to hang on Friday. So no way am I sabotaging THAT.

I already have a gift list created. I'm not scrapping that.

I spread the word of peace, love and joy on a daily basis. That's a non-starter.

Should I remove random lights on my Christian neighbor's string in order to sow anti-Christmas sentiment?

Scowl when someone wishes me Merry Christmas?

Facebook "dislike" those who spread false memes about President Obama and "holiday" trees???

So much consternation in atheist land... how do we successfully wage a "War on Christmas"???

21. Just post here--

'backscatter' and the rest with the ruffled feathers will be here to comfort you after the huge horrific, shutting down of the "cultural"
and "non-religious" discussion of atheist festivus or the usual crapping on of christmas - aka 'war on christmas'.
