War On Christmas Mongers, Desperate Or Mocking

It depends on which side starts each meme. From Nationalreport.net and other liberal fake news rags, it's mocking disguised as desperation coming from some at Fox News.

It just never stops!

There are a few things people do every holiday season, including Easter, Halloween and Christmas, especially Christmas, that drive me up the wall!

1. People who grouse "Christmas is too commercial!" Well, it's only as commercial as you personally make it, so make yours less commercial then and never mind what everyone else does. We all celebrate it differently, and griping about greed at this time of year is a real kiljoy. Christmas is not about commercialism for me, even though I do gift exchanges.

2. Whingy "Christmas" songs that actually have nothing to do with, or worse, reject/mock Christmas.

3. Holiday chain letters.

4. The supposed 'war on Christmas' and now a spin-off into the 'War On Easter' that people like Bill O'Reilly, Sarah Palin, and others at fox are, or used to be, absolutely bent on starting every blasted year! And yes, this is a large proportion of holiday meme activity.

For a run-down and debunk of a dozen of these stupid hoaxes that crop up every year, go here.

I want to mangle something! Yes, I am upset, but not for the reasons whoever starts these things is hoping, nor am I upset at who they want me to be.

I am upset with anyone who starts these chain letters, and vexed at so many Christians continuing to replicate this stuff blindly, and at web sites for being too lazy, indifferent or blind and biased to bother putting as much effort into debunking chain letters ("whisper campaigns, astroturfing, fake news") coming from the left.

"War on Christmas" memes don't target atheists. They target Christians. "War on Christmas" TV segments do absolutely nothing to promote the Christmas spirit, nor are they any good for Christian well-being.

Please read this great article where Priest Jonathan Morris has a few things to say about Fox's perpetuation of their "war on Christmas."


🤥Memes: Very insightful and very true....Take a second to read this:

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: WRONG! It is not in the least insightful or true! In fact, it is very, very false! It is an absolute blight and it brings shame on us every time a Christian spreads it around!

🤥Memes: Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as “Holiday Trees”

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Apparently nothing. That is a bald-faced lie. There are no Whitehouse Holiday trees!

This stupid hoax started back in 2009 and was drudged up again in 2011, and again in 2012.

🤥Memes: for the first time this year which prompted CBS presenter, Ben Stein, to present this piece which I would like to share with you.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bull! This is not the first time Ben Stein's 2005 commentary was exploited, hacked up and changed to be misused in chain letters designed to target Christians into a panic over the supposedly dreaded "happy holidays" thing.

🤥Memes: I think it applies just as much to many countries as it does to America . . .

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: In other words, "Spread this stupid hoax world wide!" Nothing doing!

🤥Memes: The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: This thing is old news. It was a 2005 program. You can read that commentary from stem to stern on hoax-busting sites in its true version or at least get a link to it. You can also read it in it's true form along with another few links to a more recent article about another commentary he made years later, and why Bill o'Reilly's "War On Christmas" is bad for Christians here. Your recycled 2009 "holiday trees" hoax did not prompt Mr. Stein to make a Christmas confessions commentary in 2005.

🤥Memes: My confession: I am a Jew,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That's not how Mr. Stein began. You completely skipped over a whole section where he was talking about not having a clue who nick and Jessica were and didn't understand why they were supposed to be so important. You didn't even start the confession about being a Jew right. He didn't say "My confession" he said "Next confession"

You then nixed out all subsequent mentions he made of Nick and Jessica, replacing their names with simply "celebrities" or "these celebrities" in order to make it sound as if Ben stein had only just busted out with this commentary during the current Christmas season, whether that be now or 30 years from now.

Then, you didn't even have the decency, not a shred of conscience to indicate where Mr. Stein left off and you picked up with more lies and other decidedly un-Christian antics.

So I will set the record straight.

Ben Stein's 2005 piece begins with:

"Here at this happy time of year, a few confessions from my beating heart. I have no freaking clue who Nick and Jessica are."

It ends with:

"But there are a lot of us who are wondering where Nick and Jessica came from and where the America we used to know went to."

That's it.

The rest of this chain is not from Mr. stein.

🤥Memes: In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Speak for yourself, I detest viral jokes. I do not send them to anyone, and I scream inside my head at people who send them to me.

But - I am equally sick of all these religious whinge memes whining about all the freaking joke memes being re-shared!

🤥Memes: this is a little different:

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong. it's a meme. Just like every other! It's all a game to you. It is n't unique. It has been circulated around the net millions of times. It is not a rare and special nugget of something precious or even true, for that matter. So you're not going to reel me in with that angle. I'm on to you.

🤥Memes: This is not intended to be a joke;

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: LIAR! To you, it is a big joke! Either that or else you really are this delusional.

🤥Memes: it's not funny,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Right, to you, it isn't merely "funny" it's rip-roaring hilarious! You're having a real blast duping so many christians with this chain!

Well, it isn't funny or hilarious to me, it stinks, and so do you, whoever you are that started this infernal meme!

🤥Memes: it's intended to get you thinking.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That's what they all say. In actuality, you don't want Christians thinking anything besides and beyond anything you try putting into our heads that you want us feeling outraged, guilty, or frightened enough into spamming all over the internet.

Here's one Christian who is not going to play into your hands. Instead of buying your load of crap, I'm giving it the mangling it deserves!

😈Meme1: Bryant Gumbel recently interviewed Billy Graham's daughter on the Today Show.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong. 2001 isn't recent, the interview was not on the Today Show with Bryant Gumbel. It was the Early Show with Jane Clayson.

🙃Meme2: Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her: “How could God let something like this happen?” (regarding Hurricane Katrina).

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong.

Although you corrected yourself concerning the name of the show and the interviewer, which were lied about in a 2001 version of this hoax, you still got something wrong. Anne Graham Lotz was talking about the 9-11 attack not Hurricane Katrina. Here's a link.

You also botched it when trying to quote the interviewer.

Jane Clayson actually said:

"I've heard people say, those who are religious, those who are not, if God is good, how could God let this happen? To that, you say?"

😈Meme1: Gumbel: "Why didn't God stop this or do something about this?"

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: He never said that.

🙃Meme2: Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said:

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, now you're going to make up something you want us believing Anne Graham Lotz supposedly said.

🙃Meme2: “I believe God is deeply saddened by this,”

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong. She actually said:

"I say God is also angry when he sees something like this."

And this really puts the kibosh into your hurricane claim. God wouldn't be angry by an act of God, but rather, by an act of hateful terrorism. Yes, saddened as well, but Anne Graham Lotz didn't use the words "deeply saddened".

You probably took out "angry" and replaced it with "deeply saddened" to sound less forceful while trying to pile on the guilt-tripping.

😈Meme1: Billy Graham's daughter: "For years we have told God we didn't want Him in our schools."
🙃Meme2: “just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools,”

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nope, that's not what she said. she actually said:

I would say also for several years now Americans in a sense have shaken their fist at God and said, God, we want you out of our schools,"

😈Meme1: "We didn't want Him in our government and we didn't want Him in our finances"
🙃Meme2: “to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.”

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No, she actually continued:

"our government, our business, we want you out of our marketplace."

😈Meme1: "and God was being a perfect gentleman in doing just what we asked Him to do."
🙃Meme2: “And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.”

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wrong again. She actually said:

"And God, who is a gentleman, has just quietly backed out of our national and political life, our public life. Removing his hand of blessing and protection."

😈Meme1: "We need to make up our mind — do we want God or do we not want Him. We cannot just ask Him in when disaster strikes."
🙃Meme2: “How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?”

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No… The rest of what she said was:

"We need to turn to God first of all and say, God, we're sorry we have treated you this way and we invite you now to come into our national life. We put our trust in you. We have our trust in God on our coins, we need to practice it."

😈Meme1: Bryant Gumbel was silent.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Being absent from an interview would make you silent where that interview is taking place, but Mr. Gumbel was probably not being silent where he actually was that morning. Or maybe he was, nobody knows.

🤥Memes: In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: There always has and always will be this sort of violence as long as there are militant fanatics and psychos of any stripe, and as long as there are people who think they are just too right and too cool to even try getting along with anyone they view as beneath them. So, in light of this sorry facet of the human condition, you thought it would be cool to spread a hoax?

🤥Memes: I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: 1. Madalyn Murray o'Hair, (not Madeleine Murray o'Hare) didn't just "complain" she bullied, harassed, and played the victim act, taking her anti-theism religious cause all the way to the courts. Make no mistake, she was definitely religious, she was an atheist fanatic with all the fire and brimstone and intolerance as the most infamous so-called Christian fundamentalist. The only difference was she was trying to convert people away from God.

2. No, the violence of humanity didn't start with Madalyn Murray o'Hair. It started with Cain and Abel! The original sin was Adam and Eve and the forbidden fruit. But neither they nor Madalyn Murray o'Hare are responsible for school shootings and terrorism.

You, however, are responsible for this stupid hoax!

3. 2001 is not a few years ago. It is well over a decade since the murders took place.

4. The murderer died back in 2003.

So this is stinky old stuff that needs to be put to rest instead of being drudged up for use in scare-mongering hoaxes designed to dupe Christians into making spammers of themselves and spreading lies along with that.

5. Madalyn's son, William Murray is a Christian, and says that evil as his mother could be, she did not deserve the kind of death she suffered, and I agree with him whole-heartedly.

So drop the Madalyn Murray o'Hair thing for once and for all. You can read about her here, and the article also touches on several chain letter hoaxes that have duped Christians in the past.

🤥Memes: and we said OK.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No actually we didn't, but the courts will decide whatever they decide for whatever reason.

🤥Memes: Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No actually, christian schools aren't forbidden to read the bible in school. bibles aren't even banned from public schools. Only the compulsory reading of it is. That's all. Just as well since, really, back in the days when it was compulsory, school life was anything but fair let alone honky-dory for anybody who wasn't considered among the "majority" for all sorts of reasons, I don't have to go into all that again, do I? *Sigh*

🤥Memes: The Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbour as yourself.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You're forgetting the bible also said we shouldn't lie! and you are certainly not loving anyone by perpetuating this stupid hoax!

🤥Memes: And we said OK.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: actually no we didn't. But that's beside the point.

🤥Memes: Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: He might've said no to spankings, but he was a left-wing quack who was way into veganism, so certainly said no to feeding your kid meat. So he wasn't really as permissive as all that.

But naturally you would choose to pick on him in order to get people on the non-left duped in to passing on this stupid hoax!

🤥Memes: (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide).

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: WRONG! He had two sons, neither killed themselves. The suicide was that of his grandchild. read more about Dr. Spock here. It is not the Christian thing to do, make up lies about his family and then use them to gloat over some failure to your kids that you then pretend is supposed to be all his fault, or whinge about how america is going down the tubes because of the fictitious holiday trees and the great atheist conspiracy..! Spoc has been dead a long time now anyway. Let it go already!

🤥Memes: We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said okay.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not everybody. We didn't all follow Spock or consider him an expert, or else we would all be vegans, every last one of us.

You are an expert at whinging and telling tall tales, and I am not saying that's okay!

🤥Memes: Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Speak for yourself, I don't have kids. it isn't my fault or that of Madalyn Murray o'Hair's or Benjamin Spock's if your kids are screw-ups because you're a liar and whiner trying to disguise yourself as a Christian. Too bad you've duped so many others already. But you can't put this crap past me.

Speaking of being without conscience, have you ever asked yourself why you lack one? or if you want a really violent example - just ask why ancient societies regularly brutalized people and called it "justice" or just did it for fun. if you think your kids are bad, look again at the lives of people like Caligula. Okay, not good enough for you, because he wasn't a Christian. Too bad.

🤥Memes: why they don't know right from wrong,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Since you don't appear to give a darn about that yourself, you really are hypocritical to complain about that.

🤥Memes: and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: there have always been killers among the human race. I thought i explained that already. The only difference between today and yesteryear is that the media didn't report nearly as much and the law didn't go after every killer to shoot you in the backwoods where crimes were either never discovered or solved, or else kept totally hush-hush.

You would have every Christian believing in your dark fantasy world where Christmas was outlawed, where atheists run rampant, setting their demon little kids on any fresh meat to abuse and kill, where school shootings and suicides are absolutely in epidemic proportions.

Your world is a lie.

Conscienceless children and militants do exist, but not in the masses you are implying with this holiday trees hoax. God and belief in god is not being quashed to anywhere near the extent you would have us all believe. if you think Christians have it bad now, just remember ancient history, particularly the time of Jesus and a couple of centuries after.

What I'm saying is, you are not going to get this Christian joining you in your whine-fest and replicating your paranoid holiday trees lie, or the one about Spock's son, or anything else false you put into this stupid hoax meme!

🤥Memes: Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: After you've gone to great lengths with your persuasion attempt to get Christians into a condition where our brains are just like putty in your hands, you want us thinking long and hard enough, only the things you want us thinking, without questioning or disputing and debunking all your nonsense. Thinking long and hard is actually the last thing you want any Christian doing!

🤥Memes: we can figure it out.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well, I'm trying to give the process a good head-start so that anyone who comes across this mangle will be immune to the attempted brainwashing from this stupid hoax.

Here's something all Christians need to figure out: if it's something that you see posted by a friend of a friend of a friend, or just some stranger online, or in your email, and it even hints that christmas is somehow being snatched away from us by the big bad atheist conspiracies trying to get the words "Merry Christmas" or "Christmas trees" or any such thing banned, then it's a hoax!

🤥Memes: I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No, actually, it has more to do with the fact you have been whinging and lying your head off all through this lousy chain letter, and the result is you unfortunately get what you want every time some poor unsuspecting person gets walloped right in the emotions because you know just which buttons to push with Christians.

But with me, you won't reap what you sow. Otherwise I would be hoaxing you back, and I don't work that way.

🤥Memes: Funny how

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *snip* Yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda. I've already mangled this stupid, singularly unfunny drip so many freaking times!

want examples! Here you go! This "Funny how" snivel has shown up and been mangled in most if not all of these memes.

No, I'm not laughing, I haven't cracked a single smile during this dang mangle, but I'm sure you had a load of belly-laughs while cobbling together this mix of partial quotes from Ben stein, completely garbled writing you claimed was from anne Graham Lotz, and a bunch of whinging nonsense tossed in. You were hoping the little bit of Ben stein's real words would give this whole pile of rotten a boost of complete credibility in the eyes of Christians everywhere, well, YOU FAIL!

🤥Memes: My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully, Ben Stein

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You are not Ben Stein, you are not honest, you are not respectful, and you do not get my best regards in return!

🤥Memes: Pass it on if you think it has merit.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I know it does not, so, no passing on here!

🤥Memes: If not then just discard it... no one will know you did.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, I see, so it's either replicate this pile of junk far and wide or else just delete it quietly and shut up. Well, I'm not doing either. It's time christians started expressing themselves and saying "Enough with the chain letter hoaxes! We're not just going to swallow every load of hokum you frauds and liars tell us to, in the name of God, of all things! This is trash and you need to stop misusing and twisting other people's writings to dupe others into spreading something that is false and unwelcome by so many!""

No deleting/discarding quietly here! Consider this chain utterly, vehemently mangled! You waxed all big on self-expression for Christians, well, I am exercising that right. I refuse to be one of your sheeple. So how do you like that? didn't go quite the way you wanted with me, did it?

🤥Memes: But, if you discard this thought process,

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'm not discarding any "thought process" I'm using my own thought process and rejecting your attempted brain-eating…

🤥Memes: don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Hel-lo!?

1. You never have and never will fix the world's bad shape with this meme or any other.

2. It isn't anywhere near as bad as you're making out, and there are no Whitehouse Holiday Trees!

3. You only went on and on about how bad a shape you want me thinking the world is in to attempt putting me in a state of mind prone to complain about it.

4. Then you hoped I would feel so rattled and uptight by your gloom and doom world fantasy that I would be a real pushover and replicate your stupid hoax, in the mistaken belief that I was somehow taking some great action of heroics.

5. It didn't work. I could see right through you and your manipulative tactics and I called you out on your malarkey.

6. Memes like this one have mocked Christianity.

7. It is maddening, to say the least!

8. It has got to stop!

9. I am so sick of it and will not play along!

10. for once and for all, cut the "war on Christmas" crap!


Lowes didn't try to ban Christmas. The "family tree" thing was the result of some kind of misprint error. A wild hysterical ""Lowes wants to cancel Christmas and take away our Christmas trees!" chain letter resulted. It isn't true, Loes isn't out to kill Christmas. Got it?

Mailbombing the ACLU is not the Christian thing to do, neither is believing and passing on bogus and manipulative chain letters.

The ACLU doesn't always get it right either, there are times they definitely pick the wrong battles and fight for the wrong side because not even they seem to recognize or care about the difference between free speech and the abuse of that freedom, and it is this sort of coddling school bullies get that enable them to keep on bullying with impunity.

but there are times the ACLU does get it right.

ACLU Fights For Christmas Tree Far from being our enemy or some sort of anti-Christ, The ACLU fights for Christians!

Target has not and is not banning the words "Merry Christmas! Neither is The GAP!

Best Buy isn't trying to stop people from celebrating Christmas, it used the generic "happy holidays" as an all-inclusive for anyone who wants to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever holiday they have around that time of the year, including New Year's.

The frackus continued with the controvercy over the Happy Eid al-Adha included in their American Thanksgiving greeting. But Best Buy said there would be Christmas, Hanukkah etc along with the generic happy holidays.

Home Depo hasn't banned the word "Christmas" from its site.

Walmart encourages the "Happy holidays" thing, but again, not to kill Christmas, and the boycott over it ended long ago.

No, there is no freakin' stupid Christmas tree tax! This whole thing is a big honking lie, and while I'm embarrassed to say the conservative internet community swallowed this one whole yet again, I'm also laughing at the fact that the mainstream media also bought it, hook, line and sinker.

It's not a tax. It's a fee, and it's not even a fee we pay. It's something the tree growers pay, and it's something they support, as it goes into supporting their operation.

So I don't know which twit decided to start the hoax, but hope they get a pile of coal under their own tree, and I'm being nice by wishing it to be coal. I am frustrated, at the end of my rope with this stuff continuing to turn up every Christmas season!

My first reaction when I saw the words "Christmas Tree Tax" blace across my screen were to shake my head and rroll my eyes, because it's sure to be another stupid chain letter hoax that plays on petrified Christians and conservatives everywhere.

So rest assured, it's fake. Don't spread that chain letter.

No, Xmas is not disrespectful to the meaning of Christmas. I used to believe it was when I was younger, but live and learn. It is a very interesting read if you can find a good article on it.

Think you're saving your religion, yourself, the world etc. with holiness and enlightenment by passing on these chain letters?

Well, you're not!

you're only making the world a little unhappier at Christmas every time you restart this agenda to force everyone to say "Merry Christmas" only... You are sending Christians an unnecessary depressing message that says "The world is against you and trying to take away Christmas with its political correctness." You are causing some Christians to get unnecessarily upset, up in arms, believing it, and panicking to save Christmas through needless boycotts and spreading of chain letters that reflect badly on Christians and gain us no additional friends.

This goes particularly bad when the claim winds up debunked on some hoax-busting site right along with the Bloody Mary cursed mirror chain letter. This only puts egg on our faces.

This junk is exactly what we Christians should not be encouraging, let alone spreading.

"War On Christmas" was then extended to include Easter! *Facepalm! Easter hasn't been hit with quite the same wallop of chain letters as Christmas gets, and I hope it never gets that bad. But there are still some that go around, encouraging Christians to make pests of ourselves and even pass things on that aren't true. We should not allow ourselves to re-share lie, and that's what memes are when they contain inaccurate information.

Death Of Jesus Exploited In Good Luck Hoax

If Jesus Had Email, The Edith Burns Story

No Time For God, Funny How etc. Prayer Wheel

O'Reilly became so infamous for this obsession that the liberal/progressive lulz over it has gotten absolutely massive. There is even a pants-on-fire liberal chain letter claiming he got arrested for assaulting a mall Santa.

Funny how it's called "satire" when the left does it, but it's called "rumours" "smears" "whisper campaigns" when a false story comes from the right. *Rolling eyes* Chain letters any way you slice it.

Why Do People Believe These Rumors? This article speculates about the conflicts concerning over-the-top political-correctness and infringements on people's rights, and the ugly rumors sparked by these conflicts.

Site with some discussion about the aggravating "Rescue your religion!" chains that come throughout the Christmas season

Adding to the aggravation is the lack of hoax-busting sites with people at the helm who are Christian and non-left. Snopes has always been questionable, especially given what passed for discussion on their forums, but when that site's original owners split, Snopes went full-blown liberal with new, definitely not improved ownership.

Urbanlegends.about.com has the same problem, its owner is a liberal.

I used to get David Emery's Urbanlegends.about.com news letter, before my addy changed, and before I found out he's yet another freaking liberal, and a writer for Snopes, which has always seemed to teeter a bit to to left, and even a little is too much; now they've gone full-on left-wing bias.

So, back when I still thought these so-called "myth busters" were actually that and non-bias, in the UL newsletter, the first among the top 10 hoaxes of 2012 was a Facebook status falsely claiming FB was trying to get Nativity pictures removed because they were supposedly offending non-Christians.

Hoax-busters has at least one atheist near the top of its administration from what I was able to understand in past communications here and there.

We desperately need Christians busting hoaxes, mangling memes, and many more memes from the left of the aisle being archived and debunked on sites that debunk chain letters like Bloody Mary.

Of course, left-leaning sites calling themselves "fact-checkers" jumping all over chain emails designed to zero in on and hook conservatives, while completely overlooking those meant to mobilize democrats into internet slactivism. this consistently projects the idea that conservative chain email activity is far greater than democrat chain letter activity on the net. It is just one reason people on the non-left need to abandon meming, and get busy making new sites that fact-check and debunk all chain letters, especially those coming from democrats.

Politifact and all other skewed results favouring the left as supposedly more truthful and less chain-addicted while the right is supposedly a pit of liars.

I believe there are some influences trying to push the generic "happy holidays" thing, and others taking advantage. It used to be an innocent enough greeting, until mainstream trends really did try using it to push political correctness. But that only becomes clear when you see other non-Christian festivities being promoted at other times of the year than Christmas. They don't get the generic "happy holidays" but a mention of what holiday it actually is.

Yes, Ben Stein is right, there are angry, bitter atheists, but calling attention to them is the last thing anybody who values christmas should be doing. This whole "War on Christmas" thing does nothing but give them what they want - attention... Way too much of it... "War On Christmas" has spread fear, misinformation, memes, and dismay among panicking Christians. Because of the memes, it is also encouraging the atheist zealots to step up their anti-Christmas and anti-God agendas.

Let's look at this again, shall we?

Giving atheists attention and doling out fear and dismay to Christians, is that really what Christmas is supposed to be about?

Of course not.

Over and out!
