Nativity Scenes Displaced by Atheist Propaganda

One of the most pernicious liberal tricks is relativism, by which moonbats pretend that it’s only fair to pretend all things are equal, even when they are far from equal. The next step is to phase out the allegedly equal things that libs don’t like. An example from Santa Monica:

For the past 57 years, [a coalition of 13] churches erected 14 displays along the length of Ocean Avenue depicting scenes from the nativity story about the birth of Jesus Christ using life-size figures.

In all that time, the churches have had little to no competition for the total 21 spaces available for displays, because only three regular applicants took up approximately 16 spaces.

For the first time in the history of the winter holiday displays 13 individuals entered the race for the 21 spaces rather than the usual three, forcing City Hall to use a random lottery system to allot the spots.

That process left the churches with only two spaces on which they can put up only three of the usual 14 scenes.

A Jewish group received one space for a menorah and two individuals snagged a total of 18 spaces for “solstice greetings.” One person can request a maximum of nine spaces.

To date, only two of the solstice spots have been filled, and both with set-ups declaring an aversion to organized religion.

It smacks of collusion, said Hunter Jameson, a spokesperson for the churches.

“Our belief is that these new applicants have been working together to displace and push out the nativity scenes from the park, rather than erecting a full display of their own,” Jameson said.

This latest underhanded tactic to suppress our constitutional right of religious liberty was enabled by the absurd premise that Christmas and atheist displays are of equal value in December. Ninety-six percent of Americans celebrate Christmas. Five percent celebrate Hanukkah. What percentage celebrate Let’s Be Nihilist Jackasses Day?

Atheists warm hearts with Christmas cheer.

    It would be one thing if they actually put up Solstice celebritory displays – for instance, the so-called Christmas tree which is in fact a pagan Solstice artifact. I am sure the Druids and others must have some iconic themes that could have been shown.

    Instead this is about pissing on someone elses shoes because you’re an infantile asshat stomping your feet and screaming in order to get attention.

    When are the adults coming home?

    I agree- this is just a way of taking the fun out of it for everyone else.

  • GoY

    Atheism as a grim, thoughtless, unattractive cage celebrating a meaningless astrological event.

    Yeah, that’s atheism.

  • Grunt

    I know what would make that scene “warm my heart”!

    Fire.

    2 People won eighteen slots. The max number of slots any one can earn is nine. I dunnoh about you, but it’s odd that it seemed a bit weighted in favour of the ‘non-believing’.

    Seriously, though. Let’s not forget how silly the Christians are for believing in some magical ‘Sky-Daddy’.

    Yet the Muslims have a right to their noble belief in a pagan Rock God called Allah, and Crystal healing therapy is a valid way to treat illnesses.

    No bias here…move on, move on.

    You know, I understand that folks don’t believe in the same God as me, but is it really necessary for those who don’t to constantly rail against those that do, in cases such as these? Fine; don’t believe…just stop forcing your lack of belief in my space.

    Not only more folks believe than don’t (which is why it is common to find someone who will talk about their belief, and almost as easy to get someone who is “in your face” about it); but I can honestly say that as a Believing person, I’ve had far and away fewer Christians try to get in my face than those who do not believe.

    Only once or twice was the Christian unpleasant….I can only account for once when an atheist was respectful, out of, say, ten encounters.

    Time for some civil disobedience:

    Go down and OCCUPY the unused spaces.

  • dan

    Those who believe in nothing relegate themselves to
    futile nonexistence…those who believe the Universe to be a cosmic accident are apt to be self -hating accidents themselves.
    io Saturnalia to my Pagen friends…meh to the atheists :)

    96% plus 5% equals 101% which means that some celebrate BOTH, not neither. This over subscribed celebration further negates the vacuous claims of the .00001% of Atheist jackasses who are so offended by these holidays. Why are .00001% of the population dictating what the rest of us can do? Where are the bullet holes in this ridiculous sign?

    I am offended that the sign in the picture was placed so high as discriminate against women. Most men and some boys can hit it as a urination target, but women cannot, clear gender based discrimination. Where is the NOW? ACLU? SPLC? LSMFT?

  • StanInTexas

    I have yet to understand why someone who claims to KNOW for a FACT that there is no God, is so threatened by people that do believe?

    It is as if their faith that they are right cannot exist unless they force me out of the public eye.

  • GoY

    I have yet to understand why someone who claims to KNOW for a FACT that there is no God, is so threatened by people that do believe?

    The really militant atheists don’t simply disbelieve in God, they hate Him.

  • StanInTexas

    GoY, how can they hate something that does not exist?

  • fxdwg

    Why is the “Solstice” sign in a cage? As if anyone cared enough to vandalize it?

  • Beef

    It’s like crashing someone’s Christmas party and pissing in the eggnog, all because you can, and then patting yourself on the back for being “progressive”.

    The childish intolerance of those wearing the mantle of “tolerance” never ceases to amaze.

  • Jeff

    Go ahead and mock my belief in a magical Sky-daddy, as some like to refer to Christianity. As for me, I don’t have enough irrational faith to be an atheist. An atheist is still stuck with a most unsatisifying explantion for THE big questions of life; where did the universe/reality come from and WHY should any thing exist at all? The atheist is still left believing things that they can not prove or disprove. Hey atheist! Answer this, what existed BEFORE the “big bang”? Why did it go bang at all? Is the speed of light a constant? Was the speed of light in the distant past (insert desired time, e.g 100 billion years ago) as it is now. How did a four chamber heart evolve? Why do we have a sense of good and evil? So I will keep believing in my magical Sky-Daddy, And I will keep believing that the Son of magical Sky-Daddy (aka Jesus) WILL return to this planet very soon. By the way, I have yet to have an atheist that can give a set of rules on how people ought to behave that are as short and as easy to understand as the 10 Commandments.

  • Carmen

    Atheists do believe in God. There is no other explanation for their Christmas time hate spew. They are not good, thus no one can be good. Their jealousy burns so hot, they disparage God w/childish acting out. This is not a new or novel phenomena.

    PROJECTION

  • IslandLifer

    Looks like a nice target for black paintball practice.

  • Duke

    No one commenting on this website, nor anyone reading these comments, has the level of belief in God that Satan has. Satan has actually SEEN God, had his ass kicked by Him and been told to go straight to hell.

    Satan’s desire is to take as many of us with him as possible. As a Christian, I’d have to say it’s difficult to say I don’t want to see that happen to some among us.

  • Sinister66

    13 people applied
    1 location went to a jewish person
    2 locations went to a church
    9 locations went to an athiest or new age person
    9 locations went to someone else
    9 people didnt get squat

    The church will have more people enter next year and should get more spaces unless their luck is like the 9 people that didnt get anything.

  • LogicMine

    I’m offended by that ATHIEST religion(and yes, it does qualify as a religion because of a common belief and the political involvment) display and I want it REMOVED!

    (Take that F*ckers.)

  • LogicMine

    Organized Belief… ATHIESM.

    The Atheist War on Christmas and Christians Goes Asian

    Just when it looked as if the annual War on Christmas was showing signs the good guys were winning, the other side pops up and does something stupidly outrageous to demonstrate how stupid and outrageous they are.

    Admittedly, the positive signs that Christians were winning were minimal in the first place but when the head of the Catholic Defense League, Bill Donohue, sees room for optimism there has to be some hope. Then there’s the unfortunate reality that, hope or not, the War on Christmas is still raging across the land–and across the Pacific Ocean.

    Invariably, the forces of darkness are led by nihilistic atheists, domestic and foreign, dedicated to little else but negativism.

    Personally, I don’t care if someone is an atheist and worships old socks, pink gerbils, or the almighty dollar instead of the Almighty. However, in a nation in which 96% of the population celebrates Christmas, actively campaigning against December 25th as either a holiday or a holy day is an intolerable, un-American annoyance.

    It’s also an infringement on the First Amendment’s guarantees of freedom of religion and free speech.

    Out on the Left Coast, a 57 year old Christmas tradition is being attacked by the usual horde of atheists employing an unusually subtle yet still pernicious tactic, gobbling up most of alloted public spaces to celebrate the winter solstice instead of Christmas.

    For those fifty seven years, a group of churches in Santa Monica has traditionally erected 14 life-size displays depicting a variety of Nativity. This year, they are reduced to two, the other spaces alloted to out of town atheists who have filled two “solstice greetings” spots ranting against religion while monopolizing a total of 18.

    In government courts, that should be considered an illegal restraint of religion and of a national holiday.

    Hunter Jameson, a spokesperson for the churches, contends what the atheists are doing smacks of collusion and “that these new applicants have been working together to displace and push out the Nativity scenes from the park, rather than erecting a full display of their own.” (http://tiny.cc/0s9uj)

    There’s no smacking involved at all. It’s just another battle in the American atheist War on Christmas.

    Reflecting the truism that wars tend to widen, battles in that war have now spread to the Korean Peninsula.

    The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), where people are so poor and desperate they are known to eat the bark off trees, the atheistic, Communist leaders have taken great umbrage over their slaves viewing Christmas trees in the prosperous and actually democratic Republic of Korea (ROK). . .
