After the morning whirlwind called Christmas I found the time to relax and read the paper. Was reading a letter entitled 'A real celebration' and was finding myself agreeing to the intent of the letter. Then I read the last sentence; "To all Atheists, we Christians do not tell you how to live so become human and allow us to enjoy our celebrations, as I am sure you do as well."
Everything that preceded this statement became vile to my eyes. How dare you and what were you thinking of writing such a malicious statement? You spent the whole of the letter telling people how they should celebrate Christmas and then you attack atheists as the problem.
You tell atheists to "become human". But no one, especially an atheist, tells what a Christian like you should be doing. So it begs the question when do you become human?
If you are the example of human then I would choose to be an atheist. If you can not celebrate Christmas how is it you can tell the rest of us how to celebrate it?
I also notice you signed off as a member of the Tea Party. Not a surprise.
The religious right has taken a stranglehold of the Tea Party and is killing it.
