ATHEISTS EXPLOIT JESUS CRUCIFIED
The celebration of Hanukkah began on December 8, but fortunately for Jews they were not attacked by David Silverman. No, like other haters in the atheist community, the president of American Atheists saved his vitriol for Christians.

“ANGRY ATHEISTS” WAR ON CHRISTMAS

On Harvard Divinity School’s website there were pictures and a list... [Read more...]
TAMPON NATIVITY SCENE IS A HIT
“Have a holly, jolly, bloody good Christmas with these tampon crafts.” That was on the homepage of tamponcrafts.com: the website offers instructions on how to construct nativity scenes out of tampons, including Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the Three Wise Men. Indeed, it advises the reader to “Gather ‘round the manger for the Christmas Miracle. These... [Read more...]
GAYS CONDEMN SALVATION ARMY

CHRISTMAS IN THE WORKPLACE
