Blaspheming Christ At Christmas

As midtown Manhattan comes alive with the signs of Christmas--- window displays, Salvation Army bell-ringers and millions of people from all across the world flow through Times Square, an atheist group has placed a message for the masses.

"Keep The Merry!" "Dump The Myth!"

A message regarding Santa Clause and Jesus Christ.

The sign is a large picture of Santa Clause above another image of Jesus Christ on the cross.

David Silverman, president of American Atheists, who is responsible for the sign, explained to FOX News, "Most Christians are really atheists who feel trapped in their family's religion. They need not be Christian to enjoy the holiday season."

Teresa MacBain, a former pastor who is now communications director for American Atheists told media, “The true beauty of the season – family, friends, and love – have nothing to do with the gods of yesteryear. Indeed, the season is far more enjoyable without the religious baggage of guilt and judgmentalism. Dump the myth and have a happy holiday season.”

Bill Donohue, with the Catholic League said, "This is vile. When you depict Jesus on the cross with a crown of thorns, this is exploitative. We as Christians never harass, intimidate or insult atheists. But they can't seem to say, 'We simply disagree with you.' They have to insult us."

Indeed, it is insulting.

And it hurts the heart of every true follower of Jesus Christ.

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.
