Well, here we are, another Christmas season is upon us; and with it, comes more of the predictable attacks, by Atheist groups, on Christ and our Christian faith. Most recently, is a billboard, hung in Time Square, by the group, “American Atheists,” which states: “Who needs Christ during Christmas? Nobody,” with the word Christ crossed out.
It would be one thing, perhaps, if they wanted to point out that, The Winter Solstace is what was originally celebrated this time of year by the Pagans and Secularists; and that, there is much evidence that Christ was not even born around this time of year. In doing so, they could easily, and more politely, make the point that this season can be enjoyed by all Americans, regardless if we are Christians. But, when they go to the next level, and claim that no one needs Christ, and explicitly cross out his name, they have elevated it to a much bigger and broader place, which is to, directly, and explicitly, attack our faith, and The Messiah, Jesus Christ.
