Ok, I have to get something off my chest. You damn Atheists can be just as stupidly hypocritical as any other religious fanatic, and I’m sick of the hypocritical behaviors. I asked one Atheist friend if he was going to make a wish at 11:11 pm tonight as it will be 11:11 pm on 11/11/11. He told me it was childish and crazy and wasn’t even going to be 11:11 but 23:11 and then went into several reasons why it was the most idiotic idea he’d ever heard. Oh, and just the other night he was bragging about his new USB Christmas tree! and today was even telling me how he’s got plans to celebrate the Wicca holiday of Yuletide!
If you’re Atheist and plan on ridiculing or tearing down Christians/Wiccans/any religion for their beliefs/holidays, I don’t think you have the right to then celebrate any of those holidays, either. That means I honestly feel they should not be celebrating Christmas, Easter, , Summer Solstice, Kwanzaa, or any other “religious” holiday. If you are going to insist you be allowed to celebrate a holiday that you refuse to believe the religious aspects that are the whole reason for the holiday, then don’t ridicule or tear down the beliefs of the believers of that holiday! All you are doing is making yourself look like a small-minded, hypocritical bigot; not a “free thinker” or “intelligent person” at all. Why should anyone ever take your Atheist views seriously if you just act like a hypocritical bigot? It’s no different that those Christians who profess to love everyone, then go and march against homosexuality, telling people that are gay that they are evil and going to burn in hell.
Seriously, you’re just being stupid and childish. Grow up, get off our backs, enjoy the holiday, or stop taking part in the so called farce you keep insisting you’re too smart to be a part of.
