Pat Robertson Issues Dire Warning About Atheists Stealing Christmas

Time for the bogus War on Christmas!

It's that time of year again, when atheists and Satan join forces to wage a war on Christmas. Somehow Christmas always survives, usually by the skin of its teeth, but that doesn't mean that the crusaders of modern American Christendom should lay down their weapons. In fact, they should already start worrying about the war on Christmas, even though it's not even Thanksgiving yet, according to Pat Robertson. 

In a 700 Club segment flagged by Right Wing Watch, Robertson says, "The Grinch is trying to steal our holiday." The Grinch in question is atheists, and they will not be satisfied until they stamp out happiness itself. 

"The nation comes together, we sing Christmas carols, we give gifts to each other. We have lighted trees, and it's just a beautiful thing," says Robertson. "Atheists don't like our happiness, they don't want you to be happy, they want you to be miserable! They're miserable, so they want you to be miserable! So they want to steal your holiday away from you."

Another way atheists are always making everyone miserable is by trying to control their sex lives. Oh wait, that's someone else.
