reaction to coming out as an atheist

Published April 11th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

This video is kinda funny, kinda sad.  The kid videotaped his “coming out” as an atheist, and the Catholic mother does take it well, to say the least.  I bet that she would have been less upset if he had converted to Pastafarianism.

    The funny thing is my mom said this to me today although she wasn’t serious, and she said it in a joking tone.

    The whole evergreen tree thing did actually come from a pagan holiday. It’s supposed to be some sort of fertility symbol, and the presents actually represent sperm (I will never look at it the same again).

    I’ve heard several different times as to which Jesus was actually born, like early January, March, and now the middle of the summer. The one thing I do know is that December 25th is the Winter Solstice, or at least it was years ago. Now it’s been bumped up a couple of days. December 25 was supposed to celebrate how the days would only get longer because it was the shortest day of the year. It also represented the coming spring, which is associated with fertility and life, which is where the tree came from.

    The date was chosen because the Christians couldn’t get there own day to celebrate the holiday, so the used the same day as a previously existing holiday, the Winter Solstice. Just to let you know, I got this information from two different sources, one about all things Pagan and the other was Atheist Universe by David Mills (which I recommend by the way).

    Either way, the kid’s mom is telling him he won’t get presents because Christmas is about Jesus Christ. It may be celebrated in his name, but there’s nothing Christian about the holiday.

    Believe you have to consider all aspects in the current economic climate – personally do no think we have seen the full extent of the recesssion, so would be cautious in considering.
