Ok, we've tried to get people's attention but nothing worked so far. Perhaps we can make headway if people would come to the realization that very lives of Santa, Rudolph, the elves, and the Retail Capitalist's religious world view is at stake.
I'm, of course, talking about Global Warming:
The North Pole is Melting
Would children make their parents do more to stop human caused climate change if the kids realized that Mom's SUV was killing Santa?
Should I copywrite the T-shirt that would get the FundXtians totally on board? You know...the one that says:
"Oh my God! We Gotta Save Santa!"
And from our WAR ON XMA$$ Department:
How 'Bout those Christmas Trees!
The Rabbi said he wasn't going to sue the Airport and offered an electric minora for display alongside the Christmas trees in the terminal. This item also concurrently submitted by our Department of Irony, given the history of the Xm$$ tree being a Pagan Symbol. The Airport Authority countered by saying they were "Holliday" trees in the first place.
Society bends over backward to be accommodating to religious sensibilities but not to other kinds of sensibilities. If I say something offensive to religious people, I'll be universally censured, including by many atheists. But if I say something insulting about Democrats or Republicans or the Green Party, one is allowed to get away with that. Hiding behind the smoke screen of untouchability is something religions have been allowed to get away with for too long.
Absolutely awesome Dawkins quotes!!! Thanks for pointing to this site!ReplyDelete
