I know, strange thing for a secular freethinker to say, but looks like there really is a “war on Christmas,” but not from folks like me.
Two anti-Christmas, anti-Christian and frankly anti-Christ photos pretty much wrap the package of where we’re at right now:
Two United States Representatives who represent the worst of American leadership (and parenthood), flaunting their worship of a God of Guns and their contempt for the Prince of Peace.
As I see it, this is the antithesis of the meaning of both Christ and Christmas, blowing away “Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward all” and a Blast of Blasphemy at the Man and his Message.
Oddly enough, I think freethinkers can lead the way in exposing this blatant hypocrisy and defending the goodness of a holiday already buried in too much tradition, ritual and consumerism.
