A Holly Jolly Christmas Post

                                                                          Not really.

For the last 23 and a half hours, much of the world, (adjusting for time zones and the International Date Line,) has been celebrating Christmas.

And, for 24 hours prior to that, Christmas Eve.

Two days of celebration of "Peace on Earth and Goodwill to All."

To the chagrin of extreme Christianists, many non-Christians celebrate the "Tidings of Joy" right along with them.

This particular atheist, who loves the Christmas holiday and everything about it, made a resolution to not post or comment on anything political on the Facebook for the 48 hours that make up "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year."

But that is Facebook.

This is The Blog's blog.

And fuck resolutions, here.

(By the time you read this, Christmastime will be over, so all bets are off.)

Tonight, after the day was done, I jumped on the Facebook, mostly to appreciate the joyous posts of so many of his friends and family.

The Blog's mild mannered Facebook alter-ego has nearly 500 friends on Facebook.

So, it should not be, statistically, surprising that some of them are "Conservative, Right-wing, Christianist, Republicans.

What gave The Blog pause was the fact that a half dozen or so, just couldn't stop themselves for 24 hours.

That half dozen, after they checked the content of their stockings...

After they did their churchy thing...

After they came home and tore into their presents...

                                                 After they carved the rare roast beast...

Got bored, I guess...

... and resumed their Obama hate.

And spent CHRISTMAS DAY...

Ignoring The Ninth Commandment and bearing false witness all over the place.

Check out this popular post...

                                                           A post that is 99.9% fact free.

The best part about this post is the comments...

Here are the "Top Comments" at the time The PC clicked on the post...

This post, shared by several Christianist friends came from a Facebook page called "Seniors for Future Generations."

The Blog blurs out the names and profile pics of his Christian Right friends, because that's how The Blog rolls.

But, I'm not removing the names of these commenters on the original post, because I don't know them and fuck them.

Extra attention should be paid to commenter Jock Soutar, with the hope that he gets a visit from the Secret Service real soon.

Here is another good one...

A simple graphic, without any actual sourcing.

But, if it's on the internets, it must be true.

Do you want sources?

How about this one from the

The mother-fucking Examiner!


One journalistic, check-out line, notch above the "Weekly World News."

This just in...

Bigfoot and the Batboy endorse Mike Huckabee for president in 2016. 

*An aside to my Conservative, Christian, right-wing friends...

Don't bother fact-checking if you don't want to...

But, at least, vet your sources before you hit "Share."*

It is, now, 12:30 AM, PST. Christmas is over. The gloves are off.

The PC's Conservative friends weren't the only ones who didn't shut up on Christmas day.

The Blog's Liberal friends, also too, had a few things to say...

In the interest of keeping things fair and balanced...

Happy New Year.
