There are so many red flags in this story you could use them to make an entire Santa suit. Why are atheists acknowledging anything about Christmas in the first place? And why aren’t they getting it when Trump gives them the nod to religious expression, or lack thereof?
It just doesn’t make sense.
Breitbart sorts it out:
An atheist organization took out an ad in the New York Times to announce it is giving President Donald Trump a “lump of coal” for Christmas for his executive order protecting religious liberty.
The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) – an organization that champions abortion and LGBT rights – displays what it calls its “light-hearted, full-page ad” on its Facebook account. The ad appeared on Thursday – the winter solstice.
The ad’s four large stockings – labeled “Religious vouchers,” “Cabinet Zealots,” “Church Politicking” and “Stacked Judiciary” – are hung and filled with money, crosses and other gifts. Smaller stockings hung beneath the larger ones each bear a lump of coal and are labeled “Women’s rights,” “LGBT,” “Planned Parenthood,” “Muslim Immigrants” and “Civil Liberties.”
… On Thursday, FFRF posted to Facebook, “Away with the manger – in with the Solstice!”
The atheists proclaim, “Christians stole Christmas.” The group adds:
“We don’t mind sharing the season with them, but we don’t like their pretense that it is the birthday of Jesus. It is the Birthday of the Unconquered Sun — Dies Natalis Invicti Solis. Christmas is a relic of sun worship. For all of our major festivals, there were corresponding pagan festivals tied to natural events. We’ve been celebrating the Winter Solstice, this natural holiday, long before Christians crashed the party.”
Well, Merry Christmas and Happy Tolerance to you too! Good Grief!
Aren’t you really glad Trump brought Christmas back to the mainstream culture?
