Have a happy December rest interval, citizen!

The real reason why Christmas has to be totally banned from the public sphere: somebody might get hurt.

The so-called "War on Christmas" is always something of a gray area from the atheist point of view. On the one hand, the annual arguments and lawsuits about the exact ratio of Christmas tree ornaments to menorah candles that is consistent with the First Amendment such sound totally ridiculous.

On the other hand, the preferred liberal solution to the problem of culture conflict during the month of December is for everyone to speak in starkly utilitarian cant. Obsessively referring to the date of December 25th as "holiday" -- as if December 25th has always been known only as "holiday" -- is exactly the type of mind-deadening jargon that liberals used to ridicule their totalitarian opponents for employing. Now it is liberals who are making people feel like thought criminals for daring to acknowledge the existence of a Christmas.
