Pat Robertson Warns Christians: Atheists Are Coming to Steal Christmas

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, Nov 21, 2012 at 1:29 PM

It's Pat: "Christmas all over again. The Grinch is trying to steal our holiday. It's been so beautiful. 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. Atheists don't like our happiness. They don't 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."

After the jump: what Christmas looks like at the home of a notorious gay atheist and—according to rightwing nut jobs—a raving anti-Christian bigot...


Nothing was stolen. We bought the tree and the lights and the presents. The creche (not shown) was inherited from my great grandparents. And we hope that everyone who celebrates Christmas—even batshit bigots like Pat Robertson—has a happy one.
