The New Front on the Christmas Wars
I thought about this a little on the plane ride back to New Jersey. By removing all signs of Christmas from governmental buildings, aren't we endorsing the religion of atheism? Traditionally, I'll admit, atheism has been seen as non-religious, or a denial of religion. But these days it strikes me as resembling a separate creed, with true believers as moved by faith in their position as the holiest of rollers.
Think about it for a second. True, the religious cannot prove that there is a god. However, by the same token, the areligious cannot prove He does not exist. Indeed, even in my anti-religious days as a youth, I still thought the deathbed conversion made a lot of sense; no harm if it's just the end, and no fiery furnace if there is indeed a hereafter.
