Aw, c'mon Doug. Enough of the bloody shirt waving. All of the puny attacks by militant atheists (perhaps 50 of them and their Harvard lawyers) make not a scratch on the true Christmas holy day, compared to the crass commercialization of the event by capitalists of all faiths. Face the truth Doug. American Christians let the money changers into the Temple themselves and debased their own holy time way before the shrill whining of a few atheist beeches. To the vast majority of Americans, Christmas is all about superficial religious celebration and consumption, just like July 4th is all about superficial patriotism and vacation. Scapegoating "atheists" in or people of other beliefs is not going to put that genie back in the bottle.
