Under the heading "Morons on Parade."

Perhaps you've seen the ad campaign beginning in the D.C. area soon - "Why believe in a god?" Their emphasis is to help people who don't believe in any god to feel better at Christmas time.

Fred Edwords, spokesman for the humanist group putting out the ads says this: "Our reason for doing it during the holidays is there are an awful lot of agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists who feel a little alone during the holidays because of its association with traditional religion."
Link to the full story at Foxnews.com.

HELLO! CHRISTMAS EXISTS BECAUSE OF CHRIST! I can't help it if some feel left out, but they're welcome to come in from their agnostic viewpoint. There's no reason for them to feel alone. If their viewpoint brings them grief or sadness, then why not abandon it for something that doesn't break their heart.

This is what you can expect when we allow others to define (or in this case, re-define) a holiday, event or traditionally accepted qualitative norm. This group and other like them want to redefine things so they aren't required to change or they don't feel bad when the subject comes up. Tolerance is their preeminent characteristic and they demand the same from others - except usually they're not tolerant of any view that disagrees with theirs. Watch out - more of this is coming.
