Atheists X-Mas Card story with a Buffett reference

Post by jimsig »

Listening to the news on the radio the other morning they start a story with some music. I realize its Jimmy singing. It was a story from ABC news radio about Christmas cards for Atheists and Jimmy was signing "...And I don't love Jesus."

Did they cut out "My head hurts, my feet stink"???

Maybe it's because in spite of all the work we do, it's the child in us we really value.

I know they cut it at the begining. The song played softly as the story went on but was tough to hear so I am not sure it that part ever got played.

Do not resent growing old. Many are denied the privilege.

I doubt it... not the first time someone messed up the true meaning of a song to trumpet their own agenda. :evil: :evil: :evil:

What??? Who would do such a thing??? Ooohhh oohhh, I know! Damn near everybody!

On a similar note, I LOVE hearing Born In The USA when it gets used like some anthem about national pride. Makes me think people don't listen to lyrics.

Well I remember the Bulls playing "The Time of Your Life (Good Riddance) by Green Day during a tribute to Scottie Pippen.... :D

Um.. but.. if I'm correct.. Atheists don't believe Jesus is G~d's
Son.. (well they don't believe there is a G~d)

Just like how Jesus fits the rest of the list of dudes with the 3 stars and the 12 idiots and the silly mother. Come on, you know "Jesus" has nothing to do with Christmas. According to history, which isn't even close to reality, he wasn't even born in December - he was born in May.

So what's the big deal?

Judaism would profess that Jesus is not the saviour, not the Son of God
Atheism would say there is no God, period.
