Atheism on the March at Christmas Time and a Gospel Response

There is a lot of hate out there, but it is not being expressed toward Jews or Muslims this Christmas. It is directed toward Christians.

Megan Fox at NewsReal Blog writes:
This holiday, I’m going to create a work of art. It’s going to be a miniature, bloodied, dead body of Mohammed complete with miniature turban and clutching a tiny Koran. I’m going to cover it in live maggots and film it. Then, I’m going to require a taxpayer funded art gallery to display it. In fact, I’m going to insist the Smithsonian take it. And they shouldn’t have a problem with that because right now the Smithsonian is featuring a bloodied depiction of Jesus on the cross, lying on the ground and covered in ants.

Merry Christmas!

None of the “artists” whose “art” is displayed at the Smithsonian are courageous enough to take on a project like mine. They only dare to mock and insult the true religion of peace, Christianity, whose members do little more than sigh and feel disgust when “artists” mock their Savior. Should anyone try to take on the Religion of Terror’s prophet Mohammed in artwork, let’s just say more than fur would fly. They’d find themselves living under armed guard with fatwas for their heads declared by UN council members!

Alongside the film featuring Bug Christ, not to be confused with Piss Christ, (another taxpayer funded masterpiece sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts) are photos of two brothers making out (incest is so misunderstood), naked butts from behind, a very disturbing photo of someone with their mouth sewn shut with blood dripping from the wounds, and close up shots of male genitalia. (Someone should find out if the nudes were taken off TSA computers.)

And then there is the new billboard in New Jersey debunking Christmas. Elena Ives at NewsReal writes:

A fervent group of Dickensonian atheists have plunked down $20,000 in a bid to lure New Jersey commuters out of the Christmas spirit and into a morose boycott – all because, as it reads on their billboard outside of the Lincoln Tunnel, the whole thing is nothing but “a myth.”

Wow. Merry Christmas. I suppose that includes Jingle Bells, Silent Night, eggnog, holly, mistletoe and all the rest — leaving the enlightened with nothing in their stockings but their own aggrieved scowls and wounded petulance.

This reminds me of another yuletide kerfuffle a couple years ago, when Christmas symbols from various faiths coexisted in ecumenical peace and harmony at the Washington State Capitol – that is until the self-ordained “free-thinkers” at Freedom from Religion Foundation came along with their offering — a sign designed solely to belittle and insult the others.

At this season of the Winter Solstice may reason prevail.

There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell.

There is only our natural world.

Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.

Pretty deep stuff. You have to feel sorry for people who want to "boycott" something like Christmas. I think if I was an atheist I'd turn a blind eye and enjoy the turkey dinner with my family just this one day of the year.

On the other hand over in poor, old, broken Britain where waited 14 long years to get rid of the Socialists only to get "Cast Iron Dave" instead of a real Conservative, Lord Carey is fronting a campaign called "Not Ashamed" designed to remind Brits of their wonderful Christian heritage as a nation. Here is a promotional video:

Boldly proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the only hope for the nation, Lord Carey and the others are speaking the truth in a situation where truth is unwelcome. You might notice toward the end that several people speak who have been fired from their jobs and experienced real persecution for witnessing to Christ in modern day Britain. They are brave and joy-filled Christians and they will be in our prayers this Christmas season.
