Edwin Kagin is the legal director of American Atheists and a guy with a very unique sense of humor.
He offers his version of a Christmas card from a fundamentalist Christian family:
… The house was burned down by sparks from the burning of Harry Potter books in our yard. Little Marvin got a chicken bone stuck in his throat at a church picnic and was rushed to the hospital where doctors had to remove his voice box, so he can never talk again, but God miraculously saved him. Miranda is now being home schooled after she left eighth grade to become a single mother. An abortion was out of the question, and we know God has given us a hydrocephalic grandchild for his own good and perfect reasons…

Activist Rob Sherman is also offering his list of Top Ten Reasons why it’s Great to be an Atheist at this time of year:
Reason # 7: No burning down your house when some live tree catches fire in your living room. What the hell are you doing, putting a live “evergreen” tree in your living room, and then stringing a bunch of electrical wires and lights on the tree, just when the tree is in its most combustible state? Are you trying to burn your house down?
Reason # 6: No need to send out, by postal or by e-mail, those annoying holiday cards with the phony sincerity.
