The atheists are in denial that there actually is a war. If there isn’t, how do you explain these:
In Palisades Park in Santa Monica, display boxes normally used for Christmas messages were almost all claimed by atheists. One read: “37 million Americans know MYTHS when they see them. What myths do you see?” In the display is a horned devil, Santa Claus, a guy with a trident and…Jesus.
This billboard, according to the American Atheists website, is reserved for the Lincoln Tunnel.
An atheist group in Pitman, Pennsylvania, criticized a “Keep Christ in Christmas” banner over the street. A mayor in the Western part of that state barred the same group’s “there are no gods” banner from the town’s nativity display.
Yes, atheists are in denial about the War on Christmas—or they are just plain lying. Could it be both?
Rational Wiki defines this battle thusly: “The so-called “War on Xmas” is a right wing demagogic neologism referring to secular progressives’ attempts to keep the December solstice holiday shopping season culturally inclusive.
One person couldn’t take it anymore. When an atheist display was set up in front of the Leesburg, Va., courthouse depicting a skeleton in a Santa suit nailed to a cross, a lady took matters into her own hands, not unlike Gideon when he destroyed the idols that were set up in his town.
Was she correct in doing this?
“I think that it’s just extremely, extremely sad,” Leesburg council member Ken Reid was quoted as saying, “that somebody in this county would try to basically debase Christmas like this. This really crossed the line.”
