Secular Humanists Bid All ‘A Merry Un-Christmas’

Merry Christmas SC Secular Humanists Bid All A Merry un Christmas

That “most wonderful time of the year” has arrived, and with it, most predictably, another round of attacks (yawn) by Secular Humanists doing their best to destroy the season by removing the Christ child from the creche.

Yes, these are the same people who think goodness exists without God (with a capital “G”) and lose their free-thinking minds at courthouse displays of the Ten Commandments. Nothing against all the free thinking atheists out there, but what rational argument can be made against “Thou shalt not kill” or “Honor thy Father and Mother”?

You’d think free thinking would involve thinking outside the box a bit. It would have saved an atheist group time, money, and the embarrassment of recently losing their lawsuit to remove a statue in Whitefish, Montana. One person, out of the countless thousands having skied past the 57-year old statue over the years, found it offensive. Had a little of that “free thinking” been conjured, maybe they would come to the same conclusion that the judge overseeing the case did in late November, deciding the “Jesus” statue should remain because it is of a historical nature having been erected as a World War II memorial for veterans who saw a similar one in Europe during WWII.

Indeed, America’s founders separated church and state because of the tyrannical mess they escaped from and fought against; but it is a ruse to suggest God was removed in the process. Au contraire. Judeo-Christian morality is woven through the very fiber of the U.S. Constitution. The founders under-pinned our nation’s laws with morality to maintain a steady framework that has been systematically chipped away at by individuals, a tiny minority I might add, forcing the masses to conform to their own religion of worshipping themselves (i.e., “Thou shalt have no other gods before me”.)

So now they are going after Charlie Brown. An atheist group is upset an Arkansas school offered students an optional (meaning not required) school field trip to see a production of “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown” that just happened to be showing at a local church. The November 29 letter sent to the Little Rock Arkansas School District by the Appignani Humanist Legal Center speaks to separation of church and state and complains: “The message of the play is clear: Jesus Christ is the son of God and the messiah, and the real meaning of Christmas is to celebrate the anniversary of his birth. It is completely sectarian in nature and expressly rejects any secular version of Christmas…”.

Well, duh. The group claims they are standing up for the rights of children; but what child after watching “A Charlie Brown Christmas” has a conversion experience? (But… if they do…good for them.) I’m thinking these people might need to deal with their own Christianphobia. Charlie Brown? Come on.

The American Humanist Association’s (AHA) website unveiled its latest un-Christmas campaign, “Bias Against Atheists Is Naughty, Not Nice,” which accuses Christians of intolerance and depicts Santa Claus drafting a naughty list in the towns where the AHA claims atheists experienced discrimination because of their disbelief.

At the expense of sounding nit-picky here, on what basis would these particular free thinkers claim discrimination is wrong? In doing so, aren’t they inadvertently acknowledging a belief in Judeo-Christian morality and a fortuitous belief in God? Check out Deuteronomy 10:17, which states God is against partiality (discrimination). Humanists say humans can be “good without God” but fall back into the same trap about the definition of good and how they arrived at that definition.

They claim they want freedom from religion, which they already have because it is one of our founding principles. Besides, Christianity is not a religion. Never was. Never will be. It’s a relationship. A way of life. A choice.

But freedom–from God–is another matter altogether, and that’s something they’ll have to work out with the man upstairs.

    Separation of church and state is not in the U.S. Constitution the only country that had separation of church and state in its constitution was the old USSR.
    The First Amendment is about not having a state run church like they had in England.

    • if you knew anything about our Fonding Fathers, this country was started with Christian values, so get a life.

      • Whoa. Karen, hit the breaks. Not so fast. Why are you reprimanding Howard? He didn't say anything wrong. He said "separation of church and state" doesn't exist in the Constitution of America and he's right. No where is that sentence written in the Constitution. I have yet to have anyone show it to me, in fact. You're right about our founding fathers and he was not contradicting that in the slightest. He was saying that places like Russia and England had laws prohibiting the freedom of worship. Now, I don't know you or Howard, but don't you think that was a hasty response?

    To all atheists…………get a life. We have one, we enjoy Christmas. We have fun with it, and it is special to us, so if you are pissed that you have forbidden yourselves any enjoyment of anything around this time of year, this is not our problem. It is the choice that you have personally made for yourselves. And if our Nativity Scense bother you, then why not turn your heads, go the other way, take another route, or ignore them? We have to ignore you and your offensive ranting and raving about something that is none of your business, and we manage to do this with very little problem! As far as “free thinking”, you do not know the meaning of either word, Free, or Thinking. You have bound up yourselves in chains of hatred against us because we enjoy our special time of year, and as for thinking, you have frozen your minds to the point that you are all incapalble of thinking past the ends of your snotty and ugly noses. If you do not want to celebrate our Christmas, then don’t. It is what is called “FREEDOM OF CHOICE!” Get a life, and make your own choice. You are so bored that you have nothing better to do than to make nusiences of yourselves every year at this time. Most likely because you are simply jealous of the rest of us who are fully enjoying our Christmases. And yes, CHRIST IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON! You don’t like Jesus Christ? Well, go tell HIM about it, and leave us alone already! You are PITA’s.

  4. I don't understand atheists. I do mean the radical sort. Not the ones that are indifferent and couldn't care less. I'm talking about the kind that feels the need to impose their views on everybody, demanding they hold the same views or face their wrath. It's like people going into a club or a restaurant that everybody is invited to, but they (atheists) don't like the food or the service and bar anybody that wants to go in. The other thing I don't get is when they call Christmas a Christian holiday. It isn't. God didn't list it as a holiday. The Bible even makes references to it as being a pagan celebration. Even so, it doesn't offend me. I mostly like the decorations and the songs, at least. I also don't understand their stance on morality. How do they come by their morality? If their parents don't teach them that stealing is wrong, how did they figure it out? Islam? It teaches the opposite. Killing, stealing, coveting, adultery, dishonoring your parents are all okay in their book. Hinduism? Depends on the god. There are a thousand of 'em. Morality is a point of view in that case. Heck, an atheist will talk glowingly about all other religions of the world (including cults), but Christianity? Sore subject for them. For some reason God just gets their panties in a twist. Oh well, easy to justify your actions when you don't have a God to answer to, right? I think that's their ultimate reason. God holds you accountable for your own actions. It would just be easier to deny he exists and do what ever you want. At which point, morality is…meh, what ever you make of it. "Oh, but there are people that disagree with me. They make me feel bad for the things I do. Well, I should convince them to agree with me so they wont correct me. There, I will dedicate my life to that and all will be well. In the end, I'll be a good person." All it cost you was your humanity. Guess I should take back my statement. I think I do understand atheists because I understand the heart of a selfish child.
