The “war on Christmas” has arisen once again. One would think that the TrueChristians™ here in the States would just stop, because every year, there is nothing accomplished but making themselves look like complete idiots. Schadenfreude is always great when someone causes their own problems.
Take the Starbucks nonsense for instance…
Happily many Christians have pointed out just how stupid this is, joining non-Christians in pointing out that Starbucks never had Christian symbols to “remove”, just the red and green (thanks to the mermaid) and the occasional reindeer or snowflake. The claims of TrueChristians™ always seem to revolve around utter ignorance and then, when caught in that ignorance, the continuation of demonstrated lies. The expected, including “wannabe-Hollywood-Square-occupant-right-beside-Charo- if-the-show-was-still-on” Bristol Palin, unsurprisingly, have hooked their wagon to this decrepit horse. This belies the claims of some other Christians who want to dismiss the war on Christmas, and this particular iteration, as only “ this whole thing was actually about one guy who makes his living creating outrageous content”, something patently untrue.
The cries of persecution seem to be nothing more than a need of TrueChristians™ to convince themselves they are right in the second decade of the 21st century. They must tell themselves that the end times are coming soon SOON, and that any bizarre claim that they can gin up is offered as “evidence”. This is because they have nothing more concrete. Thousands of years of promises and nothing. Anything, no matter how pathetic, is a “sign” that the faithful are being martyred and the bible is true.
It’s kinda hard to be a martyr in the USA. You know, with hundreds of Christian radio and tv stations, Christian bookstores, churches everywhere….
This desperation has done nothing more than make TrueChristians look truly stupid, and that wasn’t invented by the “left”. No, TrueChristians™ did it all on their own. They’ve created a problem that doesn’t exist and they devalue real persecution in their fantasies.
Happy holidays to everyone, even those twits who would try to use the holidays to separate us from our humanity. If you want to make yourself miserable, be my guest.
May all of you enjoy time with those you love or be content and comfy alone if you choose!
BTW, Starbuck’s Chestnut Praline latte is pretty damn good. No, it’s not coffee exactly, but it sure is tasty candy. I also find the cup very pretty, a gentle ombre from dark red to bright, which you can’t see in the photo at all.
