JT has written the perfect post about the mythical “War on Christmas.” Having written about the subject many times, I only wish I had thought to express the proper response to the whole thing as well as he has.
Oh goodie! FAUX News is beginning its annual tradition of displaying their utter contempt for niceness by claiming victimhood when somebody wishes them well. They are informing me, once again, that when I take time out of my day to convey that I hope the holidays are good to someone instead of telling them to go directly to hell ( do not pass go, die in a fire) or some other truly negative alternative, that I am actually insulting them in some way. This is how the deeply faithful are going to score points with god – this is the extent of their martyrdom: to spit kindness back in somebody’s face before weeping about how put upon they are. They’ve somehow convinced themselves that expressing kindness amounts to a war against them. There’s not really much left to say here other than “What a bunch of assholes.”
While the atheists and other religious folk are celebrating the idea of world peace and good will toward their fellow men and women, these Christians (and there are a LOT of them) have decided that the
Prince of PeaceBoss on the Cross wants more us-vs-them in the world. The demand that we eschew the other winter traditions around us and kowtow to a cabal of Christian whiners amounts to the opposite of spreading good cheer – it’s insisting that we cannot enjoy the holidays unless we enjoy them their way. I’ve seen two year-olds throw more justifiable tantrums.
Brilliant. Unfortunately, he double spaced after sentences and I therefore must hate him.
