No. Come one, all atheists want is to not have tax money used to endorse a single religion's holiday. You can still put up mangers in your own yard and say Merry Christmas and God Bless all you want. Taxes shouldn't be used to fund these things though.

If anyone's attacked anyone, Christians have attacked and oppressed others since the dawn of the religion's founding. Don't think Christians have done thing? Look at the Crusaded, Bloody Mary, and Hitler. Christians have worked to oppress others for a long time here in the US too, wanting to make laws to enforce the religion.

If you don't want Christmas to be "attacked," then stop criminalizing gay marriage.

Get a clue Melinda, for on the crusades were a response to Islamic aggression all of them, take the last crusade.. Muslims invaded Europe at the Gated of Vienna.. What are they suppose to do?? Hint the Muslims were not there to bring the Europeans apple pies.

Hitler was elected by mentioning Christian principals, like our politicians do they say when they need to get elected, but once elected the change course. Hitler openly bashed the religion in numerous occasions, he was no a Christian, even said the religion would die a slow death. Good Hitler quotes anti Christian...

THe whole entire purpose of Christmas was to CELEBRATE the BIRTH of JESUS CHRIST our Lord & Savior. It was never intended to make Stores rich off all of us. You have all missed to Reason for the Season? NOW DO WHAT YOU NEED to DO & change the way you Celebrate, HOW ABOUT THAT!

It's ridiculous, what reasoning would anyone have to take down Christmas? Religion, on the other hand, which has been responsible for millions of deaths (billions if you count the historical accuracy of the Bible), deserves a war.

It's Christians trying to pretend they are some endangered, threatened, minority.

Better to spend your time worry about other religions, like ones trying to blow up jetliners full of passengers.

No one in this state has the energy to start a war on anything. Everyone just sleeps, eats and watches TV.

Nothing productive ever gets accomplished.

Just because you call molesting children productive doesn't mean we should be doing it too!!

Whackadoodles converge on Oregon and say disgusting things as the poster above illustrates.

This is typical of Oregonian scumbags.

One more thing. That poster thinks there should be anti-sodomy, anti-bestiality, and anti-pedophilia laws. Just more control of our lives.
Stupid cretin!!!

Sorry, but you can't make up 85% of the country's population and be a persecuted minority. Reality doesn't work that way.
