Son of Liberty
Nobody is "tarnishing all folks", I was speaking generally, not specifically. Nobody should construe my post to mean ALL atheists, as a group they are the most sensitive, is my point.The frequent use of the term "them" in this thread is disturbing. Remember, folks, you can't tarnish all people with a single brush in the same way that atheists can't brand all Christians as dangerous and murderous fanatics. Certainly there are some who fall into particular categories, but not all.
That said, it is sad that anyone can act like this. As an atheist myself I see Christmas as a free holiday, and personally I don't think it really has any religious connotations anymore. It's simply commercial now.
