Sarah Palin Claims ‘Angry Atheists’ Seek To ‘Abort Christ From Christmas’
Yeah, we know — former Alaska governor, hapless vice-presidential candidate, and media favorite Sarah Palin is on a tour plugging her latest scholarly tome,
The Communist Atheist Secular Humanists Are Coming To Kill Us All And End Christmas Good Tidings and Great Joy, so this sort of Teawinger Tourette’s should not be unexpected:
If Thomas Jefferson were alive today, Sarah Palin said, he would probably go on FOX News to complain about the war on Christmas. … She told the audience of students that the U.S. Constitution was written by and for moral and religious people, and that nonreligious people probably were incapable of appreciating its principles. …
Palin said Jefferson would likely agree that secularists had set their sights on destroying the religious themes in Christmas celebrations.
“He would recognize those who would want to try to ignore that Jesus is the reason for the season, those who would want to try to abort Christ from Christmas,” she said. “He would recognize that, for the most part, these are angry atheists armed with an attorney. They are not the majority of Americans.”
Palin said there was a double standard that protected atheists at the expense of the religious.
