The Gay Atheist Drug-users War on Really Christian Christmas

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3lxmQATcWb8

MCGUIRK: The war on Christmas is very, very real, and if you ask me, in addition to some grouchy misanthropic heathen atheists it has to do — at the root of it — with two things — abortion and the gay rights agenda, because Christianity is against those things. It’s subtle but that’s why it’s so pronounced in recent years.
O’REILLY: Hundred percent agree. I absolutely agree 100 percent that the diminishment of Christianity is the target and Christmas is the vehicle because the secularists know the opposition to their agenda (legalized drugs is in that as well) comes primarily from the Judeo-Christian traditionalist people.

You ever notice that with some folks, all the prejudices just seem to get lumped together?

    Right, objecting to placing hideous, tasteless religious displays on public property, in defiance of all constitutional rulings on religion, totally is linked to abortion.

    • Kodie

      Disclaimer: I didn’t watch the video clip.

      It is linked to abortion – the issues are all linked to the 1st amendment. The government should not prefer the values of Christianity (or any religion) to make its laws on abortion, marriage equality, etc., nor express that preference by exhibiting a religious icon on public property.

        I agree. Unfortunately, Fox and friends are reading a completely different constitution. They are simply allergic to facts and no amount of pointing reality out to them seems to move them. You can always remind them that people other than Christians exist, but you’ll just wind up getting called a bitter, angry, hateful atheist who wants to steal Christmas from the good little boys and girls who hate the right people and fear the big man with the beard who will decide whether they get to be happy or burn forever. Sometimes I wonder if they are so desperate to cling to Christmas (pagan as the vast majority of it is) because they are mentally still children. Then I remember the lengths these people go to in order to denigrate and ostracise gay people, women, ethnic minorities and other faiths and realise that in all likelihood this Christmas thing is just another way for them to demonstrate their power and their pretend piety and that they clearly get off on making other people feel unwelcome and uncomfortable.

          I am of the opinion that there’s a significant faction of the conservative movement – largely given voice by Fox – that simply doesn’t believe in democracy. Now I don’t mean this in a pejorative sense; you can have good government without democracy and bad government with it. It is possible to think that democracy is not the best way to go about governing society without wanting to impose an abusive, tyrannical despotism. And my impression is that although they don’t say so explicitly, some conservatives think that we should be ruled by the “right” people, regardless of what the majority thinks. Look at how “compromise” has suddenly become a dirty word in some circles. Look at GOP efforts to disenfranchise certain groups in recent years.

    And then you get fix noise host Stuart Varney giggling at the memory of Madalyn Murray O’Hair being murdered (about 5 min in) because he’s pissed of the Salvation Army guy standing outside his local grocery store for wishing him happy holidays.

    Is there a word for when something surreal turns even more surreal?

    • UrsaMinor

      I’m going with ‘surrealer’, but only because it leaves “surrealest” in reserve for future stretching of the definition as necessary.

  • Justin Miyundees

    The persecuted American Christian is like a man looking in a mirror. Everything appears to make perfect sense, but is, in fact, exactly backwards.

  • Rich

    I am dumber having watched that.

    Every year they bring back the old war on Christmas. But today I saw something new. Do you think this is real?

    Jesus was concieved using a pioneering version of IVF and he had two daddies, so the nativity doesn’t seem that far from a gay family setup to me.

    O’reilly’s arguement fails because 1. not all Christians are against gay marriage and abortion and 2. not everyone againt gay marriage and abortion is Christian, so targetting Christmas would be a silly way to make progress on either of those issues.

    In other words it’s blatent lies and misrepresentation of the actual issues.

  • Keulan

    The level of stupid in that video is painful. Three morons agreeing with each other in their little Persecution Complex echo chamber. Fair and balanced my ass.

  • JK

    Isn’t it funny than anything this days is a “war on sth”? I didn’t see armed forces doing anything bad or drones firing rockets at holiday displays anywhere…
    And all that because some religious nuts want to force their beliefs on others.

  • Paul

    When I was a kid, the religious fundamentalist thought that Santa, Christmas trees and all the rest of the secular hoopla like buying presents were anti-christian. These were also the folks that didn’t want to celebrate Halloween because it was clearly Satanic in nature.

    The furor over “holiday” is particularly funny since it means “holy day” – Why would they object to someone wishing them a happy holy day?

    I do want to thank you though for the Fox clip, I have now seen my ration of them for 2013 – nothing like getting that nasty crap out of the way early.

    Wow…..Just wow.
    Not wanting a school to TAKE CHILDREN TO CHURCH isn’t the same as hating on Charlie Brown.
    Disliking that nativity scenes are on public property, but that there aren’t other religions represented isn’t oppressing Christians.
    You want to know who whines? Christians. Whenever they don’t get what they want.
    If I get upset they want to take my tax money to support and promote their religion I am not oppressing them. If I get upset that they want to take children to church when they are at a public state funded school (Aka paid for with taxes) I am not oppressing them. If I don’t want them to shove their religion down my throat (I grew up surrounded by religious people: been there done that) I am not oppressing them.
    Them saying that atheist are heathens on national tv and not realizing that dehumanizes atheists and is part of the problem is oppressive. Them thinking they have the right to use tax funds and public property to promote their religion because they see America as a Christian nation could be see as oppressive. I have the right to my opinions on religion. Read the Constitution more carefully Fox. Thanks.
