"Nothing against all the free thinking atheists out there, but what rational argument can be made against “Thou shalt not kill” or “Honor thy Father and Mother”?"
Lovely bit of demagoguery and the typical picking and choosing of palatable religious dogma.
What "rational argument" can be made for stoning people who work on Sunday? You can't run from the Old Testament, Jesus came to fulfill it, not destroy it. Yet, there it is, full of hate and genocide.
For someone who "yawns" over this whole bit, she sure is trying to make some money on it by placing this strawman argument as a column.
By the way, I'm an atheist who celebrates Christmas with family, and doesn't care what displays you have publicly.
