Sunday Sacrilege

The Carnival of the Godless is up on God is for Suckers, needless to say with a Christmas theme. From Grounded in Reality:

Christmas is not a religious holiday.

Kids don’t look forward to opening presents from Jesus on Christmas morning. Jesus didn’t need any reindeer to fly to the heavens. And from the pictures I’ve seen, he certainly ain’t no jolly old fat man in a red suit. Yep, everything great about Christmas has nothing to do with Christianity whatsoever.

We decorate trees because it is fun to do. We put up lights because it is fun to do. We give each other presents because it is fun to do. Christmas is merely an excuse to have a little fun and spread some good cheer. And it probably gives those with Seasonal Affective Disorder a reason not to kill themselves during the Winter.

(…)You want your religious holiday back? How about “ChristDay” or “JesusDay”? Just make sure you get the date right this time.

Next fortnight’s edition will be on Daily Irreverence, with no special theme.

    Thank you for an additional fantastic article. Where else could anyone get that kind of facts in such a ideal way of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and Im on the look for these information.

  2. Buying a new semi-truck, irrespective of whether
    new or used, is both a great and nerve racking for seasoned and new truckers.
    Wheel lift tow trucks possess a large yoke to support the
    towing car by touching only the wheel.
