meh, the Atheists don't mind telling people they can't celebrate their Christmas traditions, so screw em!!
I've never told anyone they can't celebrate their Christmas or any other holiday/religious tradition.
Besides, if they don't believe in God, then what's the big deal? Say it, get your diploma and be on with life......
A lack in belief of God doesn't represent a lack of belief in honor, sincerity, or truth.
Some people take oaths and their word seriously, it may be hard to believe, but some of those people don't believe in God. So you promote lying and
oath-breaking? Is that an example of good christian morals?
Well if you'd ever read the Bible, you'd know that it is.
Unfortunately he probably hasn't read it, along with the other 99.9 repeating % of the followers of all Abrahamic religions.
Before you ask, yes - I have.
There are no morals. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find 5 consecutive pages in the entire Bible in which god doesn't contradict his own morality.
It's quite Christian to say one thing and do the other. As long as you don't question your ruling authority.
It even says that god is evil, blatantly.

Young's Literal Translation and Jehovah repenteth of the evil which He hath spoken of doing to His people.
AFTER HE'S DONE "RECONSIDERING" KILLING THEM, HE JUST GOES AND KILLS THEM ANYWAY. THIS IS AFTER PROMISING MOSES HE WOULDN'T. Yes, I'm aware this is
just a bunch of ill-thought fairytales.. But the point remains the same: It's not interpreted wrong. God tells Moses he wouldn't kill innocent
people, then murders a city which he admits innocent people live in.
It's in every version of the Bible. Period.
So don't be surprised when Christians condone evil #. They worship an evil god, after all. A god which can make human mistakes - which kind of
defeats the entire purpose of worshiping him in the first place. What's the difference between him and Zeus? I mean, they even both impregnate
ladies without their consent.
