    Is a vacuum an atmosphere? Atheism is not Humanists or Freethinkers – they may not be believers but those are organized groups with codes. To be an Atheist you just don’t…. Atheism consists of nothing, we have no standardize values, code of conduct or pope.

    I don’t care about Xmas. Never have. I’m in advertising so it just means a lot of work up until mid December and vacation until late January. It’s a completely commercial holiday for me, as a kid we always traveled someplace. My holiday is my birthday, always has been.
    But for Kirk C. to say he wants to dispel a false notion of the holiday’s origins flies in the face of written records of pope’s dictum to incorporate the popular pagan celebrations into the emerging Xian faith. Facts and Kirk seem to not work well together

    @AssKiwi

    So your mass murderer knew all but those handful of Noah’s family were so evil they needed to be drown? He gave them a merciful death? I’m pretty sure that was the deal at Auschwitz too.
    What’s really creepy is that first you believe this and second you admire and worship that malevolent mythical being.

    There’s not a “you guys”. Atheists are for the most part independent, we don’t need a congregation to reenforce nothing

    If your legend of Noah and the Ark were true then your God would be the most horrific mass murderer of all time. Every man, woman and child on Earth drown in a flood except for a small select handful and most to the planet’s wildlife killed too. No Man has ever been so through in the extermination of their enemy as your God. Not Hitler, Not Genghis Khan, not Allah nor Stalin, no way. In killing Jehovah is #1.

    Yes the same concept, familiarity breeds acceptance

    JScottA, strength in numbers. If I’m OK as a public atheist, then maybe it will be OK for you to be one too.

    There’s a HUGE hidden layer of non-believers out there who just say they are Christians to avoid conflict and get along. When they discover that mask is no longer needed to be comfortable in society then they with stop the masquerade and proclaim the Age of the Atheist has arrived.

    self interest, societal expectation of I don’t kill you, you don’t kill me… and so on

    You probably should be careful what you ask for. Ask and ye shall receive …..
    The increasing comfort of most citizens with being non-religious is leading to society’s acceptance of the Atheist. Look at the number of Nones, 30% of the population under 35 is willing today to say they have no faith, follow no religion. For these Nones it is a short trip over the line from having no faith to saying there is no faith to have. As more Atheists are being accepted as respected public figures it will strengthen the resolve of the Nones to be honest and say they also do not believe in supernatural beings and do NOT live their lives based on the myths and legends of an old superstition.
    A movement for Coming Out Atheist will manifest itself in a multiplication of our numbers and will expose the myth of a Christian America. Last one out of the church, turn off the lights!
    Then you will see Who you have to deal with, Bubba!

    Better choice would have been for the Principal to cite California Public School Nutritional Guidelines which would likely prohibit the distribution of the sugar-laden death canes and without comment confiscate the contraband and return them to the parents directly with the admonishment to not bring sugar poisons and religious tracts to public school.

    Donald Trump, D’nesh D’souza, and President Reagan – two frauds and a dithering buffoon?

    Do you really not know who Maya Angelou is? I think that certifies you as a low-information poltroon and likely a bit socially retarded. Try Google, you need a refresher.

    GWB is a Texan and that makes his presence relevant in any Texas school, especially considering how much he worked on education.

    Hero is a cheap word today without relevant context. Today all who serve in the armed forces and work as first responders are broadly called “Heroes”. They are not. Service alone does not make one a hero, it is just a job. There are many more noble careers than servicing in the American Imperial Forces and the domestic Police.

    Opposition to religious iconography must be consistent to be valid. The monument is not at a religious facility or a cemetery, it is at the seat of local secular government. All public space should be kept free from any icon of any religion. That we have not been vigilant enough in protesting this incursions is no reason to allow them accommodation now.
    Totally proper to cover the Jesus Fish.
    The push for Freedom FROM Religion is equality for Atheists under the First Amendment. Nones are the fastest growing group in American society and as the Boomers age out and Millennials become a larger share of the voting population the resistance to the broad secularization of society will come only from marginalized groups of diminishing impact and relevance.

    Broadcast TV in America is already heavily censored, far more so than in Europe & Australia. Yes people are tuning out of broadcast but with 200 channels, streaming video and a plethora of choices there are more eyes on screens, just a more fragmented market. Nobody wants TV again dumbed down, the previous round of censorship is what gave birth to basic cable original programming.
    The protests have little or no effect on basic cable channels, none on premium channels as they are free of any regulation and advertising pressures.
    If you think TV is too much for your delicate little whelps then I’ve heard that every unit comes with a built-in, easy to use device to protect their eyes. It’s called the “OFF” switch, use it.

    I think horrified might be a bit of an overstatement.
    I’m an Atheist, and have an ad agency, today I did a couple of Christmas ads using the word Christmas. Half a day’s work cost the client $500 plus his monthly retainer of $2500. I don’t believe in or celebrate Xmas but between now and 12/24 I’ll bill in excess of $10,000 in special Christmas work. Don’t care for Christians but love your holy days. Bet this is the same with the producer, money talks.

    Wisdom7, my father’s grandfather came to America from Sweden through Germany in 1854 as he was a Freethinker and was in trouble over refusal to pay church taxes in both countries. They came to Baltimore and then on to Comfort, Texas where they founded a Freethinker community free of religion and churches. Comfort kept out churches for half a century. I come from a long line of Atheists. As a child I saw two Klan cross burning in our front yard, one for giving our black housekeeper a house and property and the other following my father’s support for school desegregation. My entire life I have viewed Santa Claus and Jesus as mythical beings. I know there is no virgin birth or 800 year old men building arks.

    The teacher that struck me was much older and known for her use of paddles and switches, I’m sure the infraction was talking or being disrespectful. My parents were opposed to corporal punishment and I believe had made the point once before that hitting me was not acceptable. Her action was illegal and my father ended her reign as a tyrant.
