  • Since that's exactly what Jesus would do then it's good advice.
  • The war on Xmas is all in some peoples tiny, deluded minds
  • Meh. He was just saying that he thinks we atheists are all being big meanie-heads and we should be stood up to. I don't really believe he meant "literally punch them in the mouth." I do believe he's kind of an idiot, though.
  • Theologian here. Want my take on the War on Christmas?

    It's the panicked, flailing reaction of the Religious Right to the sudden realization that the US is celebrating a completely secular holiday in December -- one which could go by Christmas or "the holidays" or Snowflake Day or whatever. They had liked to believe that the country went insane as a sign of religious devotion. Now they see that what is celebrated as Christmas by most of the country is not the same holiday as the Christian Christmas.

    Think of it like a child born on the 4th of July. Think of the tantrum he might throw the first time he realizes that the parade and the fireworks aren't for him. "No! They're doing it for ME because it's MY BIRTHDAY!" It's like that, only with more airtime.
  • oh good. This won't end poorly.
  • At some point some of these wackjobs are going to start a mini-revolution and be smacked down in a military operation that's gonna fuel Military Channel specials for the next decade.
  • Relatively Obscure: I don't really believe he meant "literally punch them in the mouth."

  • Hey, looks like we finally found someone engaged in an actual Christmas War.
  • That led to a federal lawsuit and the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled earlier this year that Satawa could continue to display his creche.

    Curious about that one. So they got their way and the nativity is allowed to remain yet they're STILL pissed? Talk about sore winners.

    And as Jon Stewart said the other night (paraphrasing): "If there's a war on Christmas, Christmas is winning because it's started EATING OTHER HOLIDAYS."
  • Those are the cries of a wounded, cornered and dying animal. The Scary Black Guy got re-elected, they lost the culture war and will be irrelevant in another generation.

    it's so funny that you libs actually believe that conservatives are racist. It's amusing.

    I'm still trying to decide which login you were using before the election. Never saw you post before two weeks or so ago, and a whole bunch haven't showed since November 6th.

    Well, I guess you're right. Conservatives being racist isn't funny. More like sad.

    Is this the new Mike Lowell? At least Mike is humorous in his over the top rants full of stupid.
  • "You know, what do you do with a bully?" he explained. "If a bully keeps getting his way and intimidating kids on the playground and nobody stands up for themselves then the bully is encouraged and emboldened and continues to bully more and more people.

    The author is right. Atheists should stand up to people who demand that everyone else live their lives a certain way because "God said so". Every time the Christians win some kind of battle like transvaginal ultrasounds or what not, they become encouraged and emboldened and go for things like demanding Creationism be taught in science class.

    I like this author. He makes pretty good points.

    He was around before the election. I couldn't say what the frequency was.
  • Guy wanting to impose his religion on others through their own government while saying people should be punched in the face for standing up for freedom of religion (FTFA): "You know, what do you do with a bully?" he explained. "If a bully keeps getting his way and intimidating kids on the playground and nobody stands up for themselves then the bully is encouraged and emboldened and continues to bully more and more people. But when a little kid is being bullied and he turns around and punches the bully in the mouth - metaphorically speaking, of course - then the bully is oftentimes proven to be a paper tiger."

    Apparently, this guy wouldn't recognize himself in a mirror.

    He wishes. Mike is always on the perfect side of Poe's Law. This guy just wants reactions, rather than to provide amusement.

    Huh. Well, I hadn't noticed him.

    Satirical, almost.

  • I've never met an atheist who's been up in arms over "christmas".

    Maybe a jehova's witness, but those guys don't even have birthdays of their own.
