War on Christmas: Atheists Neutralizing Christianity?


What a ridiculous title. No one, not even demons, can “neutralize” (nullify) true Christianity.  

A Catholic civil rights group says that the attempt by atheist activists to remove nativity scenes and faith-related symbols from the public square during Christian holidays is proof that they have targeted Christianity….League President Bill Donohue said that because atheist activists often become most visible in their actions against Christian symbolism during the Christmas and Easter seasons, it “is proof that their real hatred is of all things Christian.” (link)

I beg to differ. What it proves is they are lost and have no spiritual comprehension of what the two holidays mean to those who love and follow Jesus Christ.   

17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16)

  1. If they allow nativity scenes, they have to allow Mohammed’s birthplace scene as well. (Buddha, etc.) I refuse to defend a “holiday” which has no Scriptural basis anyway. And when we find ourselves aligned with Roman Catholic leaders, we usually are involved with compromise.

    • Rick i agree.

      Also, if these folks spent more time showing the fruit of the Spirit to atheists, or the lost in general, (peace, love, joy, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control) instead of getting themselves worked up over an imagined war of Christmas, they could make a difference. But they seem to prefer to fight spiritual battles with the flesh through activism.

  2. Imagine if all of the effort used each year to fight against the “war on Christmas” was used to feed the poor or tutor children or … you know, just about anything else.

  3. Activism = the flesh.

    Unless it is prayer closet and witnessing activism!

  4. Too many Christians have been wrapped up and absorbed into the organizational churchianity that protests and contests for its own rights and respect.

    I recall reading in a book (Irresistible Revolution) when a bunch of homeless people on the streets of Philly took shelter from the winter in a broken down catholic church building. At the end of the day, the Catholic diocese was pressing the authorities to remove them from their property.

    Yet here we are, complaining about christmas. Woe to you hypocrites who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!

  5. And by at the end of the day I mean to say in conclusion, not literally at the end of the day.

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
