"War on Christmas" really a war on absurd claims.
Nice to see in a major media outlet all the skeptics responding to theists false cries of hate and "war". This story from the Huffington Post. It is about a new atheist billboard Challenging the virgin birth story of Christmas.
It used to be that most of the atheist comments on the net I used to find mostly on atheist sites. But now, everywhere I go, when the topic comes up, there are TONS of responses by atheists.
There is a war on absurd claims. Atheists, at least the ones I would consider moral, are not advocating government force to silence religion. But when believers claim virgin births or 72 virgins, or multiple armed deities, to us those claims demand a response, much as a response would be needed if someone today went around claiming the earth to be flat.
But there is no war on your Constitutional human civil rights. You have the right to go arround claiming the moon is made of cheese, and we have the right to call you on that claim.
