The War on Christmas

If you’re going to go to war, it’s a good thing to get a real declaration of war or a resolution or something. Unlike our own war in Iraq, the good folks behind The God Movie have taken it upon themselves to lead the war on Christmas since no other secular/leftist/atheist/humanist would take up the cause.

From their press release:

“No Christmas pageant or Nativity display is safe from our troops,” said Flemming. “Wherever the mythical figure Jesus is celebrated as if he were real, we will be there with an information barrage. We will undercut the idea that there is any point at all to celebrating the ‘birth’ of a character in a fairy tale.”

And here’s the official declaration of war:

Declaration of War

We call it Christmas, we even put up a Christmas tree, but in my cold, heathen heart I know there is no God. Eat THAT, Bill O’Reilly!

I’ll be celebrating Festivus and loving it.

    I watched the first twenty minutes of this “documentary”, and if this is what passes for an information barrage against Christianity, Christianity has nothing to worry about. Quite simply, Mr. Flemming doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

  2. My post was meant to be funny.

    While I think your deconstruction of the movie is thorough, I think you’re missing the point of my post entirely.

    Sorry, I missed the humor because I haven’t read much of your writings and didn’t realize you were being funny. I wasn’t trying to be a sourpuss. 🙂

    I just saw you posting this piece by Flemming that is, in my opinion, ridiculous. He is a know nothing, and I don’t think his opinion is worth the paper he writes it on. But that’s my viewpoint.

  4. And as to your claim of my “genetic fallacy”, isn’t it equally genetically fallacious logic to dismiss the obvious and hilarious mockery of the “War on Christmas” declared by Flemming just because he may have made an inaccurate movie?

    Just asking.

  5. I’ve made that assumption -maybe because it suits my current worldview or maybe because that’s how Flemming feels. Feel free not to follow me down that rabbit hole.
