    Makes sense to me. If there is one phrase that describes the Puritan settlers in New England, it’s “anti-Christ.”

  2. jamessweet says

    And in a tit-for-tat, the Illuminati Atheist Conspiracy has announced that from now on, Jesus Christ will be referred to as “Happy Holiday Stick Man”.

    If I promise to keep the Christ in Christmas, will he promise to keep the Thor in Thursday and the Saturn in Saturday? They’re *right there* in the name of the day!

  4. says

    Works for me, too.

    In fact, oddly enough, I think he’s right.

    It’s perfectly possible to have a splendid Christmas without Christ. I celebrate “the holidays” with nary a thought about Jesus. Have for decades.

    Glad to see he is getting into the whole season of goodwill thing. Nothing says Christmas like a bitter rant against anyone not like you.

    Matty1, 1 internet to you.

    Nah, he’s got it all wrong. The war on Christmas is a war on “mas.”

    “¡No mas!” we say. “¡No mas!”

  7. imrryr says

    I think that pundits and their constant overuse of the word “war” constitute a war on the real meaning of war.

    If I promise to keep the Christ in Christmas, will he promise to keep the Thor in Thursday and the Saturn in Saturday?

    Sure.

    Don’t forget to keep the Janus in January, the Maia in May, Juno in June, and Julius Caesar in July.

    So it’s a war on God if people who don’t believe in that God don’t use that God’s name in describing a holiday. I believe that’s what’s known as “logic” to Fisher.

    To the True Christian©, ranting against people not like yourself is not just a seasonal event, it’s a full-time career.

    The fact that wingnuts demand 100% agreement on EVERYTHING, even over how you call the name of a freaking holiday shows what uptight, joyless control freaks they are.

    I mean really, someone saying “happy holidays” to you counts as a war? For fucks sake. Get in the holiday spirit and just loosen the fuck up for once, could ya!

  12. matty1 says

    @18 Exactly, it’s almost like they don’t want people to celebrate just sit around sobbing in terror at the gaycommunistmuslim menace.

  13. tsig says

    I’d say Christ needs all the help he can get, after all the last time all it took was some Romans with hammers to nail him up.

  14. Sastra says

    The “War on Christ” as this gentleman calls it is getting a lot of support from what he’d consider an unexpected source: the people who worry about the so-called “War on Christmas” and want the phrase “Merry Christmas” to be generally used, rather than the more inclusive “Happy Holidays.”

    They have not thought this one out.

    Nothing is going to take the ‘Christ’ out of Christmas faster and more efficiently than non-christians using the phrase as a generic greeting. You say “Merry Christmas” to Christians, Jews, Muslims, pagans, atheists — everyone. And they all say it back to you! And each other! See? It’s not about Jesus! It’s just a word used for the winter celebration! Inclusive! Isn’t that jolly!

    Isn’t that what you want? No? Oh. Too late. Sucker.

    They wouldn’t be whining about “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” and “Keep the Christ in Christmas” if they weren’t concerned that a lot of people DON’T. Not just Christians. Atheists and pagans and many Jews often have little problems with “Christmas.” Only the sincerely devout in other religions seem to want to grant Christmas to the Christians — but they’re fighting an uphill battle. 90% or more of the things associated with Christmas have jack all to do with some direct, exclusive connection with Christianity. Add to that its many pagan origins and there’s no need to consider it a religious holiday — let alone one exclusive to a particular sect.

    Then comes the rise of the nones, future generations, most of whom will grow up celebrating secular Christmas and have only the fuzziest idea what that baby-and-savior stuff is about. Nor will they know the ‘reindeer games.’ So what?

    What the hell did they THINK would happen when Christmas was declared a national holiday? That everyone would turn Christian in order to celebrate it? No. It meant it was secular.

    And it’s going to become more and more secularized with every “Merry Christmas!” said by one non-believer to another. Of course. It’s being made generic. They should have argued to keep it in the church if they wanted it kept special and sacred. “Merry Christmas” as a prayer. Not a public spectacle.

    Merry Christmas, Fischer. Thanks to you and yours for advancing our War on Christ.

    Ho ho ho.

    So is the “War on Christ” a war on religion or a war on philosophy?

    Better ask Bill-o, just to be on the safe side.

  16. Ichthyic says

    The fact that wingnuts demand 100% agreement on EVERYTHING, even over how you call the name of a freaking holiday shows what uptight, joyless control freaks they are.

    or that they’re just RWAs.
