Atheist group saves Christmas for Oklahoma family claiming poor treatment by church

Posted by Mr DoctorE on January 2, 2014

Happy new year!

An Oklahoma mother said atheists saved Christmas for her family after she was treated poorly by a church charity.

Tiffany Wait said she and her husband went to Bible Baptist Church’s Toy Shop on Christmas morning to get gifts for their 7-month-old son but were turned away when she declined to hand over the baby for a volunteer to hold.

“I am poor and would not be able to celebrate Christmas this year without their charity,” Wait said. “I went last year and it was a life saver. This year however, I was treated shockingly bad.”

She said she didn’t want to hand over her baby, who doesn’t like strangers, but the volunteer insisted she had to or the family couldn’t participate in the giveaway.

“I stood there, fighting back tears and asked, ‘You would turn a baby away on Christmas,’” Wait said.

But she said the volunteers refused to make an exception, and Wait said one woman tried to take the child away from her.

Another woman eventually passed a toy to the front of the line and gave it to Wait, she said.

She later posted the story on social media, where Oklahoma Atheists members saw it and decided to help the family.

“We had several people donate things and send her money through a PayPal,” said the group’s director, Red McCall, who said Christmas had become a secular holiday.

“Her Christmas was ruined,” he said. “The big message here is Tiffany was discriminated against, and if someone needs help we are going to help them. It doesn’t matter what their beliefs are.”

Atheists signs on People Mover buses in Anchorage

Posted by Mr DoctorE on December 12, 2012

ANCHORAGE – Christians like to say that Jesus is “the reason for the season.”

But a group of atheists say no time of year should be free from “pagan reverie.”

To that end, Anchorage city buses are carrying some very non-traditional Christmas messages. The Freedom From Religion Foundation of Madison, Wisconsin, has spent decades fighting for the secularization of America.

Christ is Back in Christmas!

Posted by Mr DoctorE on December 7, 2012

Create a problem to sell a solution. That’s Christianity – a simple con.

Christianity is based upon advocating the execution of an innocent man so that you can escape accountability. Is this a good message to celebrate and teach our children?

Atheist Brings “Festivus” to South Florida

Posted by Mr DoctorE on December 7, 2012


festivuspoleAfter negotiating with elected officials and with help from the ACLU, corruption fighting atheist Chaz Stevens was allowed to install an eight feet tall Festivus pole outside of Deerfield Beach’s main fire station, located on the corner of US1 and Hillsboro Blvd.

Stevens’ Festivis pole is displayed among other holiday exhibits, including a manger and menorah.

Festivus, a secular holiday celebrated on December 23, commemorates the holiday season and avoids wanton commercialism. Festivus became part of worldwide popular culture after being featured on the Seinfeld episode “The Strike” where Frank Costanza noted, “No, instead, there’s a pole. It requires no decoration. I find tinsel distracting … It’s made from aluminum. Very high strength-to-weight ratio.

Penn Jillette: Don’t Leave Atheists Out on Christmas

Posted by Mr DoctorE on December 2, 2012

Atheist magician Penn Jillette questions Christian logic and the so-called War on Christmas: “Why leave me out? Why do that? What’s your motive? And trying to turn around a ‘we want to leave you out,’ into ‘why are you forcing us to not have our joy,’ is insanity. It’s backwards.”
