Oh FFS. It's not even Halloween yet
and the lunatics are starting their Say MERRY CHRISTMAS or else!1!1 bullying campaign.

Because Christmas is the only holiday anybody is allowed to recognize between October and January, or they're persecuting the Christians. :puke:

4. Jerry Falwell Jr.'s outfit
Followed your link to "Liberty Counsel," which is just one of many schemes belonging to the Falwell klan. Liberty University, etc. etc.

This part caught my eye:

Call Liberty Counsel at 800-671-1776 today, or donate online and note in the comment box that you want the Christmas action pack, or go to our online store.

There's an "R" symbol for "Registered Trademark" after the word "Christmas." ???

Are these money-grubbing shitheads actually trying to trademark that word? Boy, that'll piss off Bill O'Reilly!

5. They would if they could
They think they own everything; Christmas, morality, family, morality, freedom, marriage, etc.

6. It's better than last year when Halloween fell on a Sunday.
The religious fundamentalist here in west Michigan were outraged and didn't want trick or treat on Sunday, a bunch of NUTS!

10. It's sad what religious bullies can get away with
in our so-called Secular Society.

9. Yep...had to slam a FB friend on this crap
She posted some old, tired, Ben Stein piece about how he is Jewish and is saddened that non Christians can't stand the term "Merry Christmas". I mention that it was bullshit that non-Christians as a whole hate the term. What we don't like is Christians who try to claim the whole damn season for themselves.

Her response...."whatever". Lovely.

11. Ben Stein is an idiot
And of course we have no problem with the term Merry Christmas. It's just that some of us recognize the fact that Christmas isn't the only holiday between November and January.

14. It's been taken a step further here in Tulsa.
Since the parade last year was called the "holiday" parade, some local put-upon, oppressed asshole and his preacher buddy are now having a "Christmas" parade at the same time, on the same day to compete with the official city parade. People will have to choose!!!! All this BS because the parade doesn't have the word "Christmas" in it. :eyes:
