Television evangelist Pat Roberston stirred the waters of the War on Christmas by declaring this week that atheists are miserable people bent on destroying Christmas for Christians. “The Grinch is trying to steal our holiday. Atheists don’t like our happiness. They don’t want you to be happy, they want you to be miserable.”
While we admit that many of the stories we cover on DefendChristmas.com showcase atheist organizations opposing various forms of Christmas in public or tied to government entities we do NOT think those organizations are representative of most people without religion or faith. In fact, we know of many, many atheists who love Christmas and support public Christmas display.
It is shameful that both sides have to paint each other with such broad strokes.
