What I am Not doing the Holiday Season

I like Christmas.  I do.  Holiday, Xmas, Winter Solstice, I don't care what it is called.

But that doesn't mean I turn off my critical thinking for flashing lights and a cup of egg nog.  I am easy, but not that easy.

Here is what I am not going to do this Christmas.

- War on Christmas.  The "War on Christmas" is a myth.  Atheists don't want Christmas or any other Holiday.  I am not going get all bent out of shape if you wish me a Merry Christmas.  I will wish you a Happy Holidays back.

- I am not buying anything from the Boy Scouts.  I left the Boy Scouts because of their stance on atheism and I will not support them today because of their stance on gays.   I know this only hurts the small troops, but too bad.  I have money give to charity, they want it, they are not going to get it.

- Same token I am not giving any money to the Salvation Army.  I used too, every year.  I won't anymore.  Until they change their stance on homosexuals.  Again sorry, but I don't have to give my money to you.
