It makes no sense to me. Atheists declare they do not believe in the existence of God, yet they demonstrate an attitude of something akin to fear towards Godâ€™s Son, Christ, especially during the annual celebration of Christâ€™s birth.
Every year, Christians around the world celebrate â€œChrist Massâ€ or Christmas. And, every year at that time, those who declare there is no God demonstrate the depth of their â€œinsecurity in their disbeliefâ€ by attacking those who celebrate the love and grace of a God who, Christians believe, sent his son into the world to provide a path to eternal life in what they believe is paradise or heaven.
Somehow, this poses a threat to the â€œGod deniers.â€ I have yet to figure out how
In my view, the annual attack on Christmas is nothing more than tyranny by a minority. The US is one of the only countries on earth where such a minority could affect the faith and traditions of the majority.
Look. If you choose not to believe in God, thatâ€™s fine by me. Itâ€™s your soul and you can do with it what you wish. But attempting to destroy the hope and joy your fellowman finds in Christmas -- out of your own bitterness -- is just wrong!
Oh, donâ€™t throw the old â€œseparation of church and stateâ€ argument at me. If it were in the constitution, then I could, and would, support it. But nothing is said in the US Constitution about separation of church and state. The constitution simply forbids the government from establishing a â€œstate churchâ€ as some of the old European governments STILL have today. (Even some early American states had their own state religion.)
