Faux La La La La

Non-Christian Cups!

A “War on Christmas”?  Maybe.

But the Defenders of the God-Baby Holiday have it all wrong.

It’s a  “Faux War on Faux Christmas” (WA POST)

I’m willing to concede that there is a war on Christmas. The real Christmas.

If Christmas is about honoring the birth of an impoverished child to a homeless couple who must eventually flee a tyrant to keep their baby safe, then, yes, there is a war on Christmas.

If Christmas is about peace, joy, generosity, thankfulness and goodwill among people, then yes, there is a war on Christmas.

This article pretty much nails the Holy Hypocrisy that wraps itself every year in Christmas Trees and Crosses.

Isn’t Faux Outrage fun?  Not really.

I’ll take another cup of Starbuck’s tea, please.

Scatter the Herd. . .Here Comes Christmas!

Oh my goodness!  This is exactly as I remember it!

Oh my goodness! This is exactly as I remember it!


I grew up thinking that all the happy and peaceful animals gathered around the manger in a beautiful, star-lit evening scene of joy and ahhh, soothed by harp-strumming angels hovering overhead.

Nice bedtime story.  Makes a sweet lullaby.

Then, we grow up.  Don’t we?

(well, at least all the animals and fairies scatter when we scramble in for Presents!)

Oddly, the Church rushes forward to Crucify the Little Swaddler and the animals are eaten (so is HE). . . to “Celebrate Life!”

Here’s something I posted last “holiday season” on Beyond God


Speaking of Annual Fairytales, once again we are blessed with the Great Annual Christian Lie called the “War on Christmas”–I recommend this excellent piece at Exactly My Thinking

NOW Who’s Anti-Christmas?

Bad, Bad, Children!

Bad, Bad, Children!

People who read and pay attention already know this, but. . .Bill-O, Listen Up!

Who were the original Anti-Christmas, War-on-Christmas, Scrooge People?

Christians!  Puritans actually (the “best kind” of Christian, some would say).  And who were the first seekers of “religious freedom” in America?

Yes, that’s right.  Puritans. . .and they HATED Christmas.

Read When Christmas Carols were Banned

History (and knowledge, and thinking) is such a party-squasher, isn’t it?

Fa la la. . .Ha, ha, ha. . .ho ho ho.

Yes, Children, there Really IS a War on Christmas!

This sickens. . .but needs to be seen, I guess

This sickens. . .but needs to be seen, I guess

I read that the Attorney General of New York is trying to get stores like KMart, Walmart and Amazon to stop selling fake guns that look real.  If you think this is overreacting, take a look at these two websites (you really should):  Toy Arsenal and More Toy Guns.  I particularly like the Swat team and Sniper rifles, but also the U.S. Army Carbine for only $28.95.  Gee, I’d like to see a whole army of children with those!  And what better time than Christmas!

I can still remember how thrilled I was when my dad gave me a bb gun for Christmas.  I was probably 8 or 9.  I’ll bet I went right out and gunned down a happy robin singing loud and joyful on Christmas Day.  It was only a year or two later that I shot a blackbird through the head and saw it hang upside down on a branch.  That was the last time I shot anything with that gun.

This is all these “toys” do.  They kill or wound things, living things, people.  Or, pretend to.  Think about that.  Pretending to kill someone.  Nice thing to teach children isn’t it?  Sure, target practice was fun.  But it’s just too hard for children not to sooner or later blast something or point the gun at someone. . .like a police officer.

Goodbye child.  Goodbye any real parenting.

I’m waiting for someone to claim it’s their Second Amendment Right for their child to own as many Toy Guns as they want.  Waaaaaahh.

One childlike question:  How many more kids will die “playing with guns” real or fake?

One grownup question:  Raising children to shoot things gives us what kind of adults?

Teaching violence has to be the Real War on Christmas since it’s the Real War on Our Children too.

The War on “The War Against Christmas”

Ah, here we go again.

Ain’t the Christmas Season a Joy?

It’s never too early to fire up the Manger Militia and the Defenders of Freedom (to cut trees, slaughter millions of animals, waste loads of money and the freedom to deny everyone else the freedom to be left in peace and do something else. . .you know, THOSE folks).

The first shots fired by. . .you guessed it. . .FOX (“Atheist Move Halts Christmas. . .”)

Normally, would FOX and the FOXED UP FAITHFUL care a wit about California and esp. Santa Monica?!

No, but lock and load your bibles. . .bring it on, you Christmas Haters!

Give us a break, please.

Any rational person whose brain is up and functioning can see exactly what this “newstory” is up to:  stirring the Xmas fruitcake pudding (yes, that’s X-mas, and sorry to tell you this but Christ doesn’t belong to FOX or Christians or Americans or anyone. . .and, for the foxy-folk who never heard this, those of us who studied Greek know that “X” was an early symbol for Christ since “X” is “CHI” the first letter of XRISTOS. . .ok, got that?).

Here’s one of my favorite lines,

“If these church groups insist that these public spaces are going to be dominated by a Christian message, we’ll just get in the game — and that changes everything.”

Listen up folks:  millions of us who share this “free country” don’t believe in your idea of Santa God.  And even though I was born on Christmas Day and served as a Minister for many years, I may love some candles and cheer but I don’t Do your kind of holidays (I’ll take a walk in the forest or by the sea any day, any season over this “holyday”).  If you choose to try to force all the rest of us to “celebrate” your Christmas Pageant, I think you need to be prepared for a little push back wake up.  IS there a “War on Christmas” or is there a faked up, foxed up Battle to make everyone Believe exactly what YOU BELIEVE and demonize those who don’t agree with you?  By the way, how is THAT “faith,” or “Christian” or “American”?

By the way. . .or NOT SO by the way. . .in my view this whole fanning of the flames of faith does nothing but make Christianity look like a joke, to make Christians look like whiney and ignorant wimps, and (here’s the worst part):  wraps up, inflates and detonates the Great Distraction once again (and we know what a Great Distraction Xmas is).

What’s the Great Distraction?  While all the God-Protectors and Christmas-Commandos are firing at the Godless Atheists, somewhere out there a poor, homeless, dark-skinned baby and his family is shivering in the cold waiting for kindness, goodness, compassion, justice and simple humanity (sound familiar?).

You see, if that was what this season, any season, was all about, we might actually see Believers and Non-Believers, Christians and Atheists, Community after Community working together to do the good and right thing. . .together.

Now, there’s a Holiday I Could Celebrate!

{Have a Peaceful Season, and please, please, avoid the War on “The War”}
