We have been pounded the past two weeks with info from pro-and-anti atheist folks who want more coverage and highlighted information posted about the annual anti-Christmas campaigns that are sweeping the U.S.
To be candid, I have held back on reporting much of that information because I find it inconsistent that these arguments only happen in the heat of the season -- thus taking away from what should be an enjoyable time for those who celebrate.
In addition, I have a sense of a growing number of atheists amongst our numbers who celebrate Christmas secularly.
This has been a subject we have kind of danced around all year. We had a whole podcast dedicated to the sacred versus secular side of Christmas and to me it boils down to this: Christmas is celebrated both ways and we should celebrate THAT.
We have worked hard over the years to welcome as many as possible to My Merry Christmas. There are divisions in religious thought, political beliefs and even Christmas itself. But I feel we can celebrate what common ground we share.
I bristle at those who are critical of Christmas. From those who get "offended" by Christmas in stores in September (how silly) to those who can stand Christmas music in July, it just seems a bit much to me to make a big deal over.
But when Christmas is used as a tool for promotion -- from those driving political agendas to those who think a manger scene is offensive -- then I think I don't want to be part of the discussion.
