But it’s not a war on Christmas, and it’s not a war on Easter. It’s a war to give the rest of us the freedom to divorce ourselves from what passes for Christianity on the Religious Right. Nowhere does the Constitution say the rest of us have to go along with them when they celebrate Easter and Christmas or anything else (and why are they so hot about Christmas and Easter when they really don’t give a fig about Jesus and his teachings?). We have just as much right on those days to celebrate the things we believe in.
That’s what religious freedom is. And that is what atheists are exercising when they carry signs that say “reason” instead of “faith.” The new crusades have been launched not by a pope, but by [Fox News’] Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes, but they have the same end in mind, and look out anyone who gets in their way.
