NY Times Christmas Day Op-ed Page: No Believers, Two Atheists

December 25th, 2014 10:15 AM

Couldn't the New York Times give it a rest on Christmas Day and feature a column by a believing Christian? No, it couidn't.

Instead, believers who blunder onto the online op-ed page today are hit with a lead column entitled "Religion Without God." And just in case you didn't get the message, there's a second column called "An Atheist’s Christmas Dream."

"Religion Without God" informs us that "religion without God may be more poignant" than actual religion.  The other column, which believers are likely to find even more repellent, declares Christmas "commercial, obnoxious, even dreaded."

Remind us to look at the Times op-ed page at the beginning of Ramadan next year for an ode to the joys of atheism.  

And a very Merry Christmas to all NewsBusters readers!
