The ferocity of the attacks on the OP surprised me (yeah, I should know better). They're even posting new threads ridiculing her.

1. No surprise there.

DU has an amazing number of Christians who are wholly incapable of recognizing their level of privilege in this country and what it means to the rest of us.

2. It's certainly a special time of the year alright

I had to break out extra for that thread.

But then I find Meta entertaining light reading.

I'm glad this post of yours was linked to in here. I enjoyed sharing a few thoughts.

5. As I said on your thread

I think a good number of them heartily approve of such behavior by their co-religionists.

8. Shame on you

for being offended by someone saying "merry fucking christmas", or at least saying it with that attitude.

I guess you have learned why atheists have good reason for our complaints about how we are treated....and you never said that you had a problem with "merry christmas". Go figure.

You need it.

9. Sorry you had to endure that.

Both the in-your-face Merry Fucking Christmas and the I've-never-experienced-that-so-it-could-never-happen-to anyone-else attitude on DU.

Welcome to The Evil Atheist Conspiracy Clubhouse!

6. Hmm, there is something missing on that thread.

No one has posted a claim that anyone who acts like that isn't a True Christian. Just flat-out refusal to believe that the incident took place as the poster described. Odd.

7. WTF?

I suppose we were just being oversensitive when we resented the fact that the members of Congress stood outside on the Capitol steps to recite the pledge just so they could literally shriek the words "ONE NATION, UNDER GOD!!111!".

Still makes me sick to my stomach.
