    Pretty much describes liberals in general doesn't it?

    Speaking of being insulted by Christmas:

    Holiday message: Atheists dub Jesus a 'myth' on Times Square billboard



    A bunch of atheists have put up a very provocative poster in Time square, but any mild reaction against it incurs the wrath of DUmmies. Someone named "cleanhippy" is really militant.

    Christmas nativity scenes won one in my city. The city of Warren has had a nativity scene every year in front of city hall-people have made a fuss in the past, and every mayor is very clear that it's not going away. There's also a star of David in lights, not that Warren has many jewish residents-jewish people in the Detroit area live in Oakland County, for the most part.

    There is a private citizen who always put a nativity display up in the median on Mound RD (a boulevard-type street with a 50 mph speed limit), across from St. Anne's Catholic Church, in the oldest part of Warren, which is called "The Village". A couple of years ago, someone complained to the county, which technically owns the road and the median, and he was told to remove it. The county is now allowing him to put his display back up this year.


    Incidentally, I never understood why St. Anne's didn't offer him a place for it when the county first told him to take it down. They are the only Catholic church around here that doesn't have a nativity display. The one in question is a nice one, not the tacky light-up variety.

    Not really. She was just glad that I didn't marry a stripper or porn star. My dating history actually managed her expectations.

    They're all pretty dopey, but I especially like the guy who pegged the atheists as capitalist fascists:

    9. It sounds very corporate-facist, actually


    Santa Claus serves the corporations by giving a reason for frenzied, underpaid citizens to spend more than they have on corporate junk.

    Those whose Christmas is truly spiritual have no need of corporations, and the stockholders can't have that.
