Quote# 90939

"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."

It's not your holiday, you supercilious twatwaffle. According to biblical scholars, your Jesus was born in the spring. Your religion hijacked pre-christian festivals and holy days because you;

1) didn't fucking have any, and
2) thought you could get more Pagans to drink the kool-aid if you tried to convince them that their holidays could be easily celebrated with a christian focus.

...and they can, if you take out the seasonal references, emphasis on light/fertility and recognition of the solstices.

Of course, failing in that, killing them worked just as well, no?

None of the 'holidays' you people celebrate are actually yours. You wouldn't even have a religion if you didn't steal from pre-christians, yet every year non-christians and Atheists have to hear this same old tired fucking lie, and the stupid historical revisionism you spout and false claims of 'the real reason for the season'.

Fuck you. Right up your ass with a rusty wire brush. You and all of the poorly informed, sanctimonious fuckwits who think like you.

More lies from Pat, it's just a steady stream of bullshit coming out of his garbage chute!

11/24/2012 10:09:56 AM


@KittyKaboom: Officially? Twatwaffle is my new favorite swear.

And I think what Pat meant to say was that the atheists around HIM are miserable, and I just can't imagine why...

11/24/2012 10:13:40 AM


I am unclear as to next steps for atheists like me. Okay, we made them miserable. We stole their holiday from them. Now what are we supposed to do with it?

11/24/2012 10:24:34 AM


News flash, lots of non-Christian groups enjoy decorated trees, Santa Claus, prezzies, carols, etc. Japanese, Iraqis, American Jews, and yes, atheists. We just skip the part about how glad we are that a baby is born to be tortured to death.

11/24/2012 10:32:33 AM


"The nation comes together" right there is a lie. You couldn't go 4 words without lying. We don't "come together" we beat the holy shit out of each other trying to get $10 off a $400 tv and trample each other to get 20% off an iPad.

11/24/2012 10:37:48 AM


Yes. I hate happiness. I'm tired of gay people being happily married and women happily in control of their bodies and destinies... oh, wait.

11/24/2012 10:38:55 AM


Ah, this seems to be the usual pre-Christmas nonsense scare story.

Move along now please, nothing to see here.

11/24/2012 10:40:09 AM


Pat, you are an unmitigated cunt.

KittyKaboom wins the thread.

11/24/2012 11:21:18 AM

I like doing all of those things.

11/24/2012 11:38:37 AM


Pat Robertson is the leader of the Low Information people. It is unfortunate that in these days of more information and knowledge that they remain fuckwits and twatwaffles.

Kudos to KittyKaboom for expanding my vocabulary.

I haven't celebrated Christmas for two years, I've been much happier doing nothing than get all riled up about it. I couldn't give less of a crap how Christians spend their Christmas.

If you're happy going to church, do that. If you're happy eating two kilos of food with your family, go for it. If you're happy gathering around a "beutiful" tree and singing songs, do that. I and neither any atheists gives a damn if you're happy on Christmas. But if you want to wish us a good time, just say holidays, could'ya?

"They're miserable, so they want you to be miserable!"
The word your looking for isn't "they", it's "I".

really? i dont want any of those things.

in fact, i couldnt care less if you are happy or not. even at christmas.

i normally celebrate annual gift exchange day with my family like any other religious or non religious family. the fact that we do it at the same time as christmas is merely for convenience.

11/24/2012 12:02:46 PM



Now what are we supposed to do with it?

11/24/2012 12:08:46 PM

The Crimson Ghost

The fact that Pat Robertson is STILL ALIVE & spewing his nonsense is proof enough that there is no god.

As far as the rest of his blather goes, I have nothing to add. Everything has already been said; much more eloquently than I could put it.

11/24/2012 12:22:10 PM


Atheists are generally not compulsive control freaks like fundies, so we don't care what other peope are doing during the holidays. Which makes fundies crazy because they have to be persecuted to be holy, so they pretend we're persecuting them by spreading lies. It's a sad tradition, and the people who listen to Pat are the real victims.

11/24/2012 12:36:36 PM


"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."

In celebration of the supposed birth of your supposed savior who is supposedly co-equal with your supposed God at a time of year he, even if he did exist, was most assuredly not born.

"Atheists don't like our happiness, they don't want you to be happy, they want you to be miserable!"

For most Christians I'm happy for their joy though I don't see how being jayful by delusion is any more laudable than being drunk or otherwise high. As for you personally, I don't give a big rat's ass if you're happy or not.

"They're miserable,"

No, not miserable at all. I don't need imaginary friends to be happy.

"so they want you to be miserable!"

No, Pat, it's just you whom I would like to see miserable.

"So they want to steal your holiday away from you."

You're really going to complain about some only-in-your-mind plot to steal a holiday season your group stole from the pagans? STFU.

11/24/2012 12:41:35 PM


Yeah, the snarling, defensive attitude of self appointed Christian "soldiers" in the "war on X-mas" just REEKS of happiness.

11/24/2012 12:48:14 PM


I can think of two possible objects that might be referred to as a "twatwaffle" and somehow I don't think anyone will be putting maple syrup on either one.

Thanks Kitty!

The unrelenting river of verbal diarrhea that comes out of Pat's mouth reminds me alternately of a low-budget kid's show MC from the 1960's and the ramblings of a paranoid schizophrenic. Sort of a severely delusional Rain Man talking down to people that he has come to believe are far more stupid than he is. Or, perhaps a sad, angry version of Wile E. Coyote, building elaborate but doomed traps for the Road Runner that look impressive to the uneducated.

There's a hole in the ground with your name on it, Pat.

Pat Robertson once again demonstrates that he has never once stepped foot out of his epistemic bubble.

11/24/2012 1:26:47 PM


I'm not miserable. I celebrate Christmas. Just because the Christmas Story is a myth shouldn't mess up a good story.

11/24/2012 1:28:20 PM

Thinking Allowed

Pat needs to watch this video and learn something about his beloved holiday.
