Miller Time or Mecca Time: O Christmas Tree! (Or, Why The West Will Fail)

Christmas Tree (1)                         Image via Wikipedia
"FBI thwarts terrorist bombing attempt at Portland holiday tree lighting, authorities say".

This headline from an Oregon newspaper (home of the Mo-Mo bomber) tells you why the West will fail. A culture that is so apologetic and weak-kneed it cannot bring itself to call a Christmas tree a Christmas tree doesn't deserve to withstand the onslaught of muscular militant Islam.

Jesus, and Christianity, more than anyone or anything, are responsible for the freedoms of western individualism: not society, or the crowd, but "he who wills, let him take up his cross"; and, "as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become the children of God". Western individualism is founded on Christianity. If we can't even bring ourselves to acknowledge a benign, non-religious symbol of Christianity, we don't deserve to survive the onslaught of submit! surrender! Islam -- an intolerant religion that punishes apostates with death.

That's why this atheist supports Christianity. I serve humanity for its own sake. You serve for His sake, because it pleases Him. We used to fear Christians when they were more like muslims. Now we are allies... at least for my part.

As a conservative atheist i have to echo what Alex says...although it took a few centuries to turn Christianity into a faith that won't torture and burn heretics and scientists at the stake, now that it is a reasonable faith, Christians are our allies in defending western culture and western human rights. By deconstructing our Christian past we dig a hole that secular humanism may not be able to fill, a hole that Islam will in any case fill far easier and quicker.

I am an atheist, but i am a member of a Christian society, a Christian culture, with Christian values, and a Christian influenced conscious, and long may that remain so!
