Moonbat Grinches Attack Christmas Spirit in Times Square

The best time to visit New York is December, when the cold grimness of Manhattan becomes warm and bright with Christmas spirit. But moonbats are working on that:

Just as midtown Manhattan comes alive with Christmas cheer, festive window displays and Salvation Army bell ringers trying to channel holiday generosity to the needy, an atheist group has a message for the masses teeming into Times Square: Jesus is a myth.

With a picture of Santa Claus above another image of Jesus Christ, the sign, sponsored by New Jersey-based American Atheists, urges passersby to “Keep the Merry!” and “Dump the Myth!”

Some jerk paid $25,000 to keep the tasteless billboard posted for an entire month in what could best be described as an act of lawful vandalism.

Militant atheists are moonbats not because they believe there is no god, but because they use this belief as a sledgehammer to undermine society by smashing the traditions that define it.

There can be no Christmas without Christ. A holiday drained of its meaning will whither away — like the rest of our culture.

    The atheists won’t be happy until every vestige of Christianity is removed from public view and the whole world forgets there ever was such a person! The vast majority of atheists are not content to live their lives with their opinions left to themselves. Instead, they wish to prevent others from publicly expressing their religious views (especially Christians), denounce biblical morality, and do all they can to distance the founding of America from its Christian influences.

    By the way, ever notice that the atheists NEVER publicly post such ads against Islam or Muslims? How often do atheists maintain a campaign mocking Islam or Muhammed? They don’t because they’re cowards! They know the Muslims will slit their throats or blow up their homes. But atheists know the Christians won’t! The peaceful nature of Christians makes them an easy target to the cowardly atheists.

    Eventually Moonbats will demand 100 foot walls be built around churches so the mere sight of them doesnt offend liberals progressive communists.

    And anyone talking about Christ will be charged with a hate crime against Muslims and Atheists.

  • Mickey Shea

    Yeah, it’s infuriating, but I don’t think it’s gonna actually change what’s in people’s hearts…if anything, I think it will generate a backlash of hatred and ill will
    towards these moonbats.

  • Comrade J

    Do they know that St Nicholas – the real person, was a Christian who suffered persecution for his faith in Jesus Christ under a Roman emperor?

    And that Santa is children’s MYTH that grew out of it.

    To borrow a phrase from Churchill, atheism is the creed of ignorance. And the tragedy is that they narcissistically believe they are the most knowledgeable.

  • St. Gilbert

    Trolls seem to be tracking this story on conservative sites across the internet…

    There is no “merry” in atheism. It’s just a historical truism that atheism, when fully realized across a society, leads to bleakness, sterility and despair. It can only remain smug and self-important when it exists in a fruitful culture, and then steals the fruits from trees it did not plant. Even paganism had festivals and real pleasure. Where are the atheistic festivals, and their clubs of fruitful poetry and dancing, and their vows to something greater than self, and their real romances? The merry-making of atheism is done for only one reason — “for tomorrow we die.” Even atheistic drinking is fruitless because it is medicinal drinking. It is the drinking that shuts out the universe, not the drinking that reveals it. Atheism rationalizes everything from drink to happiness, and everything human ends up destroyed.

    Chesterton sums up the two opposing types of merry-making by comparing the medicinal drinking of the atheistic rationalist to the sacramental drinking of the joyful Christian:

    Dionysius made wine, not a medicine, but a sacrament. Jesus Christ also made wine, not a medicine, but a sacrament. But Omar [the rationalist/atheist/freethinker] makes it, not a sacrament, but a medicine. He feasts because life is not joyful; he revels because he is not glad. “Drink,” he says, “for you know not whence you come or why. Drink, for you know not when you go nor where. Drink, because the stars are cruel and the world is idle as a humming-top. Drink, because there is nothing worth trusting, nothing worth fighting for. Drink, because all things are lapsed in a base equality and an evil peace.” So he stands offering the cup in his hand. And at the high altar of Christianity stands another figure, in whose hand also is the cup of the vine. “Drink,” he says, “for the whole world is as red as this wine, with the crimson of the love and the wrath of God. Drink, for the trumpets are blowing for battle and this is the stirrup-cup. Drink, for this is my blood of the new testament that is shed for you. Drink, for I know of whence you come and why. Drink, for I know of when you go and where.”

    Hey Atheists:
    If all religion is a “myth” as you suggest, then what do you call the dumping of $25,000 to promote the religion of non-religion ?

  • Jimbo

    I typically ignore atheists. Unfortunately, the in-your-face-SOBs don’t return the favor.

  • Jester

    First Christ; Allah is next. Ironically, libs aren’t gonna find it quite as easy to ban their current pet religion as it will be to ban Christianity…

  • Erik Loomis

    Moonbats also have no trouble with part of London and all of Brussels being under some sort of a wire so that “the people” can regard it as one building so that they can walk outdoors which is really indoors on the sabbat.

  • Sgt Stadenko

    It’s not that atheists believe there is no god, but that the State is their god. It is their be-all, end-all; the final authority in their world. All rights flow from the state, and none are “God-given” (i.e. Natural Rights). This is why the vast majority of them are on the Left (or far-Left).

    If they truly believed their own rhetoric, they wouldn’t care what anyone else believes.

  • Mr Evilwrench

    Well, I don’t know about “vast majority”, cause I ain’t them. I am the definitive infidel, first in line to be beheaded, but I have no truck against the full expression of Christianity, in public and all. I love Christmas, the whole thing, hymns, lights, trees, carols, the whole bit. Islam, not so much. Those bastards need to be slapped around at the very least, and if they come for my Christmas, they get shot in the face.

    Atheism, or non-theism, or whatever, needs to be as personal as any theism, and if it’s spread across a society that says to me it may not be personal. Likewise, merry comes from within, and those without “belief” are equally as capable of it as those with. However, if belief is denied to a person, merriness won’t likely be genuine.

  • Sgt Stadenko

    That’s why I prefer the term “agnostic”, even though I am a non-believer (or “non-theist” if you will). I also have no problem with public displays of Christian or Jewish symbolism. Both are intrinsic parts of Western heritage. The word “atheist” is far too damaged by zealous anti-religious bigotry.

  • James McEnanly

    It seems odd that they would choose to keep Saint Nicholas, but get rid of Christ, to whom St. Nicholas, bishop of Myra, worked for.

  • TTommy

    I believe there was a Jesus Christ at one time. But he was no god. There is no god. Every culture has it’s group of people who come up with ridiculous fairy tales to make them feel better about dying. It’s passed on from generation so it’s not surprising it morphs into something just outrageously unbelievable. I love Christmas, but it’s about family to me. Not some invisible friend in the sky. It’s enough to be a good person during your time on earth and leave it at that.

  • Jester

    TTommy says:

    ridiculous fairy tales to make them feel better about dying… outrageously unbelievable… invisible friend

    Please tell me what compels you to ridicule, impugn, and belittle believers.

  • whotothewhat

    Ignore the billboard evil knows who Christ is.

    Evil only wins if don’t.

  • Logic_Mine

    Let’s see them call ISLAM a myth.

    Wonder how well that would turn out?

    My guess it would not turn out well. I have my suspicions.

    Go to the atheists.org website. The very first thing you will see, in bright red on the top left, is an appeal for online donations. “American Atheists a 501(c)(3) non profit (educational) organization. We are not a political or religious organization. Donations may be tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.” Of course they can.

    The second thing you will see is the billboard. Scroll down and you’ll see a ad for a video called “Night of the Living Savior”, showing an empty cross at Calvary. Scroll a little more and you’ll see promos for their upcoming conference art auction ($25 nonrefundable deposit).

    What you WON’T see is any serious discussion of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism or Scientology. Do a search and you’ll find ONE long historical essay eventually claiming that Mohammed never existed, comparing him to Peter Pan or the Wizard of Oz only in the very last paragraph.

    A search for “Buddhism” gained about twelve results, all buried in unrelated articles. “Hinduism”, “Astrology” and “Confucius” each got six results, mentioned only in passing, mostly in articles denouncing Creationism.

    “Scientology” did worse, only five results, including a single article discussing Tom Cruise lobbying the FBI.
    “Sikhism” got ZERO results.

    “Jews” did better, with about fifty results, but with only about two articles directly addressing Judaism. Again, the online articles are overwhelmingly anti-Christian. All other faiths are mentioned only in passing.

    “Terrorism” got thirteen results, none of them directly discussing Islamic Terror. “9-11″ got about thirty results, mostly articles discussing Ground Zero memorials (as opposed to an article titled, say, “Islam Is a Murderous Cult Founded By a Psychopath And Its Followers Belong in Internment Camps” Now THAT would get publicity.)

    Conclusion: American Atheists do not have problems with Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Scientologists, or Witches. They are playing to anti-Christian sentiment to make money and gain publicity by attacking safe, easy, politically-correct targets.

    @ Alan “Conclusion: American Atheists do not have problems with Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Scientologists, or Witches. They are playing to anti-Christian sentiment to make money and gain publicity by attacking safe, easy, politically-correct targets.”

    Yep. That’s as plain as the fly on Beelzebub’s face.

  • grayjohn

    I don’t believe in atheists.

  • bobdog

    Somebody should point out to the Muslim world that atheists.org insults Islam, too. I hope they get the hint.

    Feels kinda like swatting.

  • jack

    Jews like to divide countries, except Israel.
