Day after day, it becomes increasingly apparent that the so-called "War on Christmas" is not being fought in defense of Christmas, but is actually being fought by religious authoritarians against any and all non-Christians.
Following Gretchen Carlson's outrage over the approval of a Festivus pole and Bryan Fischer's insistence that freedom of religion is a right exclusive to Christians, the American Family Association hosted another "War on Christmas" crusader, Bodie Hodge of Answers In Genesis (the same group responsible for the Creation Museum).
Accompanied by AFA head Tim Wildmon and research director Ed Vitagliano, Hodge insisted that non-Christians shouldn't even be taking days off.
"If you thought about it, a secular, atheistic worldview, you know they don't want Christmas," said Hodge. "Well, why don't they go up and say, 'I want to work on Christmas and I don’t want time-and-a-half and I don't want any of those holidays because that implies there is some God out there that's holy that makes a day special.
"Consider a weekend. A weekend is a Christian thing, God created in the six days, he rested on the seventh, the Lord resurrected on the first day, that's a Christian thing. These guys should say, 'No, we should work all the time' and work like the bees till you die."
Of course, Hodge failed to mention (even though he said it) that the Bible only mandates one day of rest while the weekend is two.
Yet even if that were not the case, what Hodge is effectively arguing is that Christians should have everything ever mentioned in the Bible patented, copyrighted, and prohibited from use by non-believers.
Following that same logic, atheists should patent the theory of relativity and insist that Christians no longer have the right to exist.
