[challenge entry] The Athiest Christmas Card
I'm giving this to all my Christian friends this year... Oh how they love me ;-)

It's not all that sick, but makes up for it by being highly inappropriate.

# *atheist.
Why is this inappropriate? Atheists (such as myself) are practically forced to celebrate Christmas by their family, friends, etc etc...
So why the fuck should we feel the need to believe in god as well?

# Your words don't make any sense
or maybe my brain cannot make sense of them.

I agree with both urbane legend and beep

# I guess I'm just saying
that I don't see how being an atheist and celebrating Christmas is inappropriate, as the original post led us to believe.

I've lost my original point now. *sulk*

# *ruffles hair*
but he's saying his christian friends would find it inappropriate, not us athiests, we're not the target audience.

# Athiests....
Well, what I meant is that it seems wrong to me to gate-crash the festival that Christians have claimed for themselves, and then send them cards telling them that they're wrong!

# Gah! Please spell it right...
And the point is that the Christians are wrong. They stole a festival.

# Look;
Christmas always was a pagan festival anyway, and it's the pagan aspect of present giving and eating yummy food that's actually celebrated.
To celebrate the Christian Christmas you have to go to church and pray and stuff. So don't feel put out by Christmas being Christian; it isn't really, and nor is Easter.

# It's a little like the Romans stealing the Greek gods.

# The Romans
worshipped whichever gods they encountered in their invading and whatnot. It wasn't unusual for Romans to worship Egyptian gods and so on. It didn't really bother them which gods you worshipped, as longs as the gods were kept happy and didn't go around smiting.

it's a GNU/GPL thing

not inappropriate.

Believing in fairy tales is inappropriate.
