He gives him the boot for "Denigrating The Name Of Jesus Christ".

a nativity scene is offensive because it is on government land. That means the government supports Christianity which is against the constitution. When he said it was offensive he means that the government was forcing the idea upon people that if you don`t believe in someone, you deserve to be tortured forever. That is the sickest and most offensive thing in the world. That people deserve to be tortured because they don`t agree with you.

How is a nativity scene "offensive"? I don`t mind atheists, but the ones who go around complaining about this poo just piss me off. Get a damn life and be offended by something that is ACTUALLY OFFENSIVE.

This is small town TX, it`s the culture, get over it.

I don`t understand why this segment was on a show called "Follow the Money". Anybody? I don`t watch Fux News.

In any case, the atheist wasn`t denigrating Christ, in my opinion, but he was complaining about one interpretation of original sin which isn`t shared by all Christians. I don`t really see how that ties to the nativity scene or how that insults anyone, even if it doesn`t belong on public property.

I don`t think I`m wrong, exactly, just generalizing. I know that gnosticism is knowledge of God`s existence or not and is not theistic, I`m merely using the vernacular of "agnostic" to show that in today`s world, someone who would classify themselves as an agnostic theist, would be very unlikely to call themselves agnostic. Most who would classify themselves as agnostic, when asked if they believe in God, would likely say "no" or " I don`t know".

I`m an Athiest, and I have to say, this is the dumbest thing ever. So a few Christians put up a symbol of their religion? It isn`t `insulting`. This is America, and in history, this happened, and showing the birth of a child, the son of God or not, isn`t insulting to me in any way.

I assure you, 80% of the population is definitely not Christian. And if you and an athiest died tomorrow, and the athiest was right, you wasted your life believing in and, most likely completely failing to live by a set of morals and standards taught by a collection of fairy tales and trying to force others to believe them, too.

80% of the US population claim to be christian. 80% of our population is wrong? I`ll tell you what. If an atheist is right and I am wrong, and we both die tomorrow then what? Nothing happens we are just bones. On the other hand, if I (and the rest of the 80%) am right, and the atheist is wrong and we both die tomorrow then what? I go to a wonderful place called heaven, and the atheist goes to a fiery hell. Believe what you want, as for me and my house, we will serve the lord.

So, for example, I am an agnostic atheist. I don`t have compelling objective evidence, let alone know for certain, about the existence or lack thereof of any kind of god or gods and I don`t believe in them.

You can have agnostic theists (pure faith - they acknowledge they don`t have objective evidence, but they believe anyway)

You can have gnostic atheists (they claim to know, objectively, that there aren`t any gods and they don`t believe in any gods).

You can have gnostic theists (they claim to know, objectively, that there are god(s) and they believe in them). Although it could be argued that gnostic theism is technically impossible because if you have objective proof then belief is an irrelevant concept.

i`m an atheist, and i don`t like what that group is doing. it`s none of their business, and it makes all of us look bad. let them have their little scene, it`s not like he had a better idea for it (though i vote for burning it due to how ugly they look). like it was sponsored by burgerking.

i don`t like how he said it was a symbol of hate, when it`s not. it`s a birth scene, nothing more. the whole principal of jesus is messed up though.

i also wish people would get rid of the notion that the stupid spaghetti monster is our god. it`s idiotic, but would make a cool decoration. we could hang meatballs from the trees.

You are wrong about what "agnostic" means, so your conclusion is wrong and you are making yourself look foolish for calling someone stupid because they know what a word means and you don`t.

[quote]Agnostics are atheists.[/quote]

And you`re wrong too.


Agnosticism is the general idea, applying to all things and not just religion, that a person should not claim something to be definitely true unless they can objectively prove it or, in more casual usage, give compelling objective evidence for it. It`s a seperate thing from religious belief or lack thereof.

Gnosis - knowledge.
Theos - gods.

Different things.

No, that was usurped by Christianity a bit later, when it conquered northern Europe. The original was Saturnalia/Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, which Christianity usurped when it was conquering Rome.

[quote]Well, the fact of the matter is, Christmas is a distinctly religious holiday, specifically Christian. Sure, there are other celebrations going on at the same time (Hanukkah, Ramadan), but America by and large celebrates CHRISTMAS. I don`t understand why people have no problem celebrating Christmas but then turn and get offended when the root of the holiday is mentioned.[/quote]

The root of the holiday has absolutely nothing to do with Christianity. It`s a combination of the traditonal ancient Roman religious celebration of the winter equinox (Saturnalia) and Mithraism (specifically, Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, the celebration of the birth of the sun god on the 25th of December).

So you`re completely wrong. Even your own bible (the only mention of Jesus` birth) clearly puts Jesus` birthday outside of winter and certainly not in the middle of it.

Nothing wrong with a nativity scene- I an understand some people would prefer it not to be quite where it is- but as long as no one discriminates against them because they do not believe in Christ then no harm is done. Equally, it is not nice to insult another persons religion, but to kick him off like that made wotisface look like a dick...

People wouldn`t say "atheism made me do it" because they don`t believe they have a soul or that there is a higher power. Atheism is not a religion, but a lack there of. They would be more likely to say "society made me do it" What upsets me is how people now wants freedom from religion of any kind, and do not seem to want any one else to have religion. That makes them as bad as the extreme christens or muslims.

"I failed to see atheist any where in the media stand against Muslims, Jews, Buddhist, or any other major religion (or minor for that matter)."

If there were Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, etc statues or whatever being put up in government buildings, these people would go after them too. And so would Christians (especially if it was Muslim thing). We don`t care about what religion people are, but we do care about things like the government using taxpayer money to erect decorations specific to only certain religions.

I`m an atheist but I`m also a Buddhist (I consider it more like a philosophy really) and I`d think it`d be stupid if government buildings decided to put up mini Buddha statues or something. I don`t get why Christian`s want so bad to push their religion on everyone else instead of keeping it to their own home and their own property.

"I don`t know" is fine. My reasoning for my statement is thus: If I ask you "Is there a God?" the agnostic says "I don`t know."

When I ask the agnostic "Do you believe in God?" the answer is either yes or no. A "higher power" or a spirituality is still not theistic. If you don`t know if God exists therefore it is impossible to believe in him.

Wrong, The establishment clause has been taken too far from it`s intention, it was to prevent the government from establishing a national religion, like King George had, in Britain, with the Anglican church.

We have freedom OF religion, NOT freedom FROM religion. That is what most people understand and accept, except for those militant atheists wanting to eradicate any mention of religion no matter where it`s found.

How anyone can find a nativity scene to be `threatening` is beyond reason. No one is forced to pray, no one is forced to believe. If you find a Christian cross to be threatening then probably this country is not for you, because it would be hard to go anywhere in America without finding one within

I don`t think people really know what "separation of church and state" really means. It doesn`t mean that government buildings can`t display religious things or that money can`t have the word "God" on it. It`s not even in the Constitution!

The phrase came from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. It stated that "... I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should `make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,` thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."

The government can neither declare an official religion nor make a law that prohibits a religion in any way.

THAT`S IT.

As an atheist, I personally don`t give a crap if someone has a nativity, cross, freaking statue of Jesus in their yard or on any property, just as a Christian wouldn`t care if I left my yard or house clear of all such things. If I don`t believe in it then fine, I don`t. They aren`t dragging me in a church and making me pray. My atheistic views are about tolerance and acceptance of all people, sexuality and religion alike. Also, I find it very strange that there is now "Atheist Groups" isn`t that the equivalent of an organized religion (without the deity)?

People are fallible, we are all sinners. Jesus didn`t cause anything in your list to happen and anyone can misuse virtually any philosophy, religion, or lack thereof, for evil.

As for your statement of Jesus being dead. No he`s not dead, he rose from the dead, he was seen by more than 500 people (1 Corinthians 15:6) after his resurrection. He sits at the right hand of God waiting to come back. (Mark 16: 19)

I respect people`s right to express their religion, but he does have a point; to have a religious display dominating a public property (especially a courthouse, city hall or local seat of government) that is authorised and paid for by a local government does send a message that the religion in question has a privileged place within that government.

I also believe that the US` founding fathers were very specific that religion and government should be separate. Christian symbols and mantras only began spreading into government and the currency much later in violation of Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and the Separation of church and state.

"In God We Trust" was adopted as the official motto of the United States only in 1956!

I think Atheists, mainly atheists organizations, are taking the discussion to a very weird level where they find something "Offensive", You may find it weird, stupid, maybe even awkward and nonsensical, but offensive? I don’t think Christians could EVER understand why they say that, it’s just impossible to even begin to comprehend an argument like that if you are religious, it’s useless.

I’m ok and I like it how they use the “There are more religions, we can’t pick a favorite” card, but that’s where it should end, with it’s branches of course, if they spend tax money to set the display or something.

"the nativity scene an insult to human nature"
Jesus never told anyone to bow to him. Jesus never condemned anyone to hell or even mentioned hell once in the Scriptures. He never said people were deserving of torment. Throughout his life, Jesus decided to spend time with the outcasts of society (lepers, prostitutes, tax collectors) because he believed they needed hope....Jesus does believe that we are all sinners, but who disputes that? He certainly didnt "create" hell. In fact he did the opposite.
For the poor and sick in Jesus`s time, life was hell. They were told by the civic and religous officials of the time that God was punishing them. However, Jesus preached a message of toleration, acceptance, and love....Can someone explain what this idiot in the video is talking about?

By considering "Christ"mas a Christian holiday, you are actually committing a blasphemy against your own religion. Indeed, the only reason Christmas is tolerated in churches and the like is because Christianity is so disgustingly impure compared to what it once was.

Because "Christ"mas started out as a non-Christian holiday, by celebrating it you are actually breaking the first Commandment that "Thou shall not have any other gods before me." After all, the holiday was originally meant to celebrate and worship the Winter Solstice, at which point the days became longer. It`s a form of Idolatry, which is a sin against your god.

To be honest, by rejecting the Christ in "Christ"mas, an atheist is being a better Christian than you are.

So how`s about this: You stop considering it YOUR holiday, and treat it as just a good time to be happy and charitable like us atheists? After all, that`s all it is, unless you`re a heretic.

"Christ"mas has nothing to do with Christ. Jesus was NOT born around Christmas, exchanging gifts was not a Christian idea, the tree was part of ancient heathen rituals, etc...

You missed the entire point. The Atheist spokesperson clearly stated that he was fine with the nativity scene and such things in people`s yards or businesses, but the point was that it was displayed at the entrance of a government building. One of the basic principles of America is separation of Church and state.
On an unrelated note, people need to get over the whole `Only Christians can have anything to do with Christmas.` Christmas is not celebrated on Jesus`s birthday, it was created to tie Christian beliefs and pagan beliefs together. The original holiday was a pagan holiday called Yule. And at this point, Christmas celebrates capitalism, not any religion it`s all about buying and giving.

How on earth is the scene of Jesus` birth offensive to anyone? What could an atheist put up at CHRISTmas time as means of a celebration of their non faith...Santa? Because I thought you had to believe in him as well. This is to say I respect Atheist for their choices, but do the cynical ones always have to bash something they don`t believe in nor have knowledge of, because it was very obvious that the Atheist gentleman did not know what he was talking about when it came to Jesus.

I`m an atheist through and through, but this is just bollocks! Christmas means something to people the world over, Christian or not. The nativity scene is just a part of that. So bugger off, Mr Barker!

Atheists like this do not represent the views and opinions of major league baseball... Er, I meant most other atheists. Most of us are too busy having happy lives to worry about all you religious folk having much the same fun despite the difference of opinions.

Sadly, there will always be a handful of idiots like this to give FOX more fuel for their `OMG is a war against Christmas!` line of bull.

I don`t judge you by the actions of the Westboro Baptists, please don`t judge me by our bad apples either.

I bet none of you checked how the stock prices were affected. =) But thats why i love you.

I`m not a christian, I just get paid by them.
I believe in something, its just not defined in a book.

I believe in love, but, I dont see many people here capable of understanding or giving it back.

ledzeppeloyd, have a conversation with a non-radical Christian church leading member and you won`t see any hate towards homosexuals. Just as the radicals don`t characterize Christians they don`t do for Athiests either. Saying you can tell Christians to take down a nativity scene is the same as someone saying HOMOS ARE GOING TO HELL. Extremists are extremist, derp.

I`m going to call it Christmas because I FU**ING LOVE SANTA!!!! Ho Ho Ho!! Egg nog and family gatherings, that`s what I care about in a holiday, no FU**ING religion owns the idea of what someone does on that day, it`s for a HUMAN BEING to decide what`s special about that day! Anyone can call it whatever they want, but they aren`t changing my mind or telling me what I have to say during this season.

i think they got every drating right in the WORLD to be able to keep the nativity scene up. drat these pussy atheists and their bullpoo. what the hell is happening to America when you cant even decorate your yard anymore!? (or a business)its about time a Christian stands up to these Atheist pricks. and by the way? im PERSONALLY a Satanist! but im sick of this Atheist movement. i cant even ARGUE my beliefs anymore, if you tell ANYONE you believe in God (or GODS in my case) your laughed out of the goddamn room! whatever happened to our RESPECT for each other?? ill be the FIRST person in the world to tell you that Christians took over Christmas, but thats still NO REASON to tell a public business that they cannot worship Christ on what is now CHRISTMAS. i think what EVERYONE needs to re-learn to do is STAY THE drat OUT OF EACH OTHERS BUSINESSES!

Enough with the reason for Christmas bullsh^t. It`s a Pagan holiday. Why don`t we call just all pipe down and call it Holiday Takeover day, to make everyone happy.

I`m glad to live in a town without assh*le atheists like the idiot in the first part of this clip.

I hate people that feel they have to suck all the joy and Christianity out of Christmas.

If you don`t like what Christmas represents, then go make your own holiday and quit screwing around with ours.

Well, the fact of the matter is, Christmas is a distinctly religious holiday, specifically Christian. Sure, there are other celebrations going on at the same time (Hanukkah, Ramadan), but America by and large celebrates CHRISTMAS. I don`t understand why people have no problem celebrating Christmas but then turn and get offended when the root of the holiday is mentioned.

Put up a Hanukkah display or a Ramadan display, they`re being celebrated now too. But seriously, people really need a thicker skin if a religious display makes them pissed off/uncomfortable. Don`t believe in God if you don`t want to. I, for one, won`t try to shove it down your throat. But don`t get offended when you see something you don`t believe in. I don`t get offended when I see images of other religions (or lack thereof). There`s plenty of things in society that, if I had my way, wouldn`t be displayed, but you don`t see me griping about it. If it really bugs you, just avoid it.

It sickens me, I think Christmas is about family and being together, screw religion, holidays should just celebrate good times together. Atheist or not, that guy representing Atheists gave them all a bad name.

@WeePee He said nothing of the sort.. he simply said jesus created hell, we were born with sin and he doesn`t like public representation of humans being born sinners and the degradation of those myths are insulting. You and Eric bolling need to find a crow bar, and try to pry your heads out of your asses.

I`m an atheist, but I think the guy who got booted was being a jerk, and kind of deserved it. The second guy who was arguing was much more reasonable about it.

The host brought up the point that it would be ridiculous to have festivus poles and shrines to the flying spaghetti monster. Yeah, exactly. That`s the whole point. That there are only two ways to fairly display religion on government grounds: To display ALL religions, and to have to figure out which religions are legitimate/not and what proportion of exposure they should get, or to display NO religions. Now, of those two options, which one makes more sense and is ultimately feasible? Exactly.

By the length of the video and the description, this sounds like something I really don`t want to see.

Not to mention FN in the thumbnail.

Maybe in future there could be a warning? "watching this will make you want to shoot someone" for example.
