25th December 2010

“For many Americans, church attendance is a central part of their lives. For others, it's a waste of time. If you're in either of these groups, more power to you. But in the spirit of Christmas and the truthteller whose message we celebrate, surely believers and atheists can agree on what to tell folks who talk Jesus but walk Santa: Enough with the two-faced posturing.”

Shankar Vedantam

    PSSTT! ….It ISN’T a war against Christmas, it’s a war against Hypocrisy.

    “good” bless us one and all …and not just during the holiday season. And secular humanists seem to keep “goodwill towards man” at the forefront of their behavior ALL YEAR ROUND, because these values are actually embedded into our moral philosophy and not part of a punishment/reward system or an artificial set of ambiguous instructions.

    Come now, you don’t have all the answers either, even if you (falsely) claim that you do.

    Season’s spirit aside though – why is it that over a billion people every year celebrate the product of a covered-up pre-marital affair? Celebrate Festivus or the Solstice instead. 😉

    Happy Solstice, fellow travelers. For those wishing to celebrate the birth of the jewish bastard, you missed it back in September of October.
