Merry Christmas: Atheist Group Steals Gifts From the Poor

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty has awarded an atheist organization their annual “Ebenezer Award” for putting their secular agenda above all else – even kids who don’t have two dimes to rub together this Christmas.

The American Humanist Association spoiled the holidays this year by taking a Colorado public school to court, forcing them to withdraw from their participation in Operation Christmas Child – a nonprofit charity that encourages students to send care packages to poverty-stricken children around the world. These packages include basic hygienic products and school supplies for kids who have never seen a PlayStation in their lives…but they also include a little message about Jesus Christ.

Naturally, that’s a problem for the AHA.

“The American Humanist Association works to protect the rights of humanists, atheists, and other non-religious Americans,” the AHA’s website says. “The AHA advances the ethical and life-affirming philosophy of humanism, which — without beliefs in an gods or supernatural forces — encourages individuals to live informed and meaningful lives that aspire to the greater good of humanity.”

The humanist message apparently includes the maxim: It’s better not to give at all than to give in the name of Christ.

“These boxes are filled with school supplies and basic hygiene items,” said Becket Law’s Kristina Arriaga. “It’s heartbreaking enough that there are children who will receive nothing but a toothbrush for Christmas. The American Humanist Association would deny them even that?”

What good is a toothbrush if it comes tainted with the Gospel of Christ? Okay, so some poor kid in Africa gets a small toy this year instead of the usual nothing. For that, we’re going to risk exposing American children to a dangerous message of love and forgiveness? My God, can you imagine?

“We’re talking about school children putting together care packages for other children who are in need. If we can’t support that at Christmas, we are truly living in Scrooge’s world,” said Arriaga.

The AHA can talk about humanism and the separation of church and state and all of this high-minded crap, but here’s the effect they had back here in the thing we call reality: Fewer needy children will get a Christmas present this year. Strip away all the rhetoric and that’s what you’re left with.

When the people behind this organization realize that truth, they’ll see that no matter what they may believe about the afterlife, shame can create a special personal hell for you right here on earth.

  1. So let me get this right, the American Humanist Association, stopped a charitable organization from giving generously from their hearts???

    American Humanist Association is just another Liberal Progressive oxymoron…. I would like to hear just how they explain their actions aspire for the greater good of humanity…

    • I looked at the lawsuit; and it does list a whole lot of very specific, very detailed religious information; way more than I would find acceptable if the religious information was coming from the Koran. If the information contained in the lawsuit is correct; the school would appear to be Proselytizing their particular brand of Religion:

      • So what! Yeah “advocate nurse” because the world is full of Christian terrorists blowing themselves and others up in the name Jesus? Oh no wait! That would be that “religion (cult) of peace” islam. If there is no God and there is no Jesus there is absolutely no reason to do any of the good works (to show one’s faith, not for the sake of doing good works alone) you do as a nurse. What, to feel good? Sex, drugs, rocknroll, high risk behaviors, accumulating material things are all capable of making us feel good. If all we are is worm dirt in the end there’s no reason for any of us to not risk robbing, pillaging, or conning our way to wealth and self gain. A bunch of kids selflessly, and yeah in the name of Jesus partly, wanted to do good for other kids in impoverished lands and were stopped by atheist “humanists.” Sounds more inhuman if you ask me.

        • great and truthful post

        • It looks like the American Humanist organization is just an extension of the ACLU.

          • and needs to be re-named-the UnAmerican Inhumane Society aka Atheists-R-Us.

          • Real Patriots love the Constitution and the ACLU.

          • Real Patriots to America love America…..

            The ACLU was set up for one thing only, Weaken Americas society.

            16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

          • The ACLU was founded to subvert the Constitution and the U.N. was founded by Communists.

          • It goes way back to when I was in school that I started despising this group of JERKS. I am 71 years young. So it’s been a while. POOPED DISTURBERERS.

        • Thank you! Best post of the day!

        • I don’t believe attempting to understand why someone else has a different point of view than I do is analogous to heresy or hedonism.

          It wasn’t difficult for me to imagine that the same amount of specific religious detail would absolutely not be okay for my child to receive from a Muslim religious group.

        • S.D. the biggest problem with “Humanists” is that they talk a good game about meaning and greater good, but so did the Nazi. Secular systems by definition are value free, which means you end up with sociopaths and Psychopaths, who recycle and are polite to other leftists. As you pointed out, if there is no reason in reality to not be a monster, many people will become that.

      • Total BS, all they are doing is following the agenda items laid out in the book “The Naked Communists.”

        This lawsuit is nothing but a “Claim.”

        16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

        • Communist Goals There are in the 10 Jan 1963 Congressional Record.
          [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
          1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
          2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
          3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
          4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
          5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
          6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
          7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
          8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
          9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
          10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
          11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
          12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
          13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
          14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
          15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
          16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
          17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
          18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
          19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
          20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
          21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
          22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
          23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
          24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
          25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
          26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
          27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
          28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
          29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
          30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
          31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
          32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
          33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
          34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
          35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
          36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
          37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
          38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
          39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
          40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
          41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
          42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
          43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
          44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
          45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

          • I am very familiar with the agenda….. NOW, 8 years ago, not so much..

            The moral majority can no longer turn its backs on our elite politicians.

            #8 Take over one or both political parties.
            Elite Republicans = Elite Democrats = Elite MEDIA….

            The list is basically complete.

            “We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have communism.”
            —-Nikita Khrushchev

          • You are ONE of the few well informed people in this country. Please help spread this and the “Rules for Radicals” far and wide. All others reading this please help us to spread the truth and destroy the elites in ALL parties.

          • Thank you for the compliment.

            I found these two videos extremely helpful in my efforts to understand what is happening in America and how our enemy is doing it.

            I believe they are using ideological subversion to teach people to think as if they are riding a backwards bicycle.

            Together We the People will figure this out..

          • Good comments Graywolf12 and MAHB001! With people like you two our Country has a chance of becoming Great again! It’s going to take time to educate the every day American, but it can be done, town by town. With Trump leading the charge and you two on the flanks, America has a chance.

            Please keep blogging all the info you have! I’ve been doing this since bho took office and no one would listen then — well they are listening now! Keep the info flowing! Thanks!!!

          • Thank you for reacquainting me with this. Now I remember where I’d seen seen several of these before: Saul Alinsky used several of them in his manifest.

          • 46. Head to Manhattan and pull a Benghazi on the U.N.!

        • I don’t believe attempting to understand why someone else has a different point of view than I do is analogous to Communism.

          It wasn’t difficult for me to imagine that the same amount of specific religious detail would absolutely not be okay for my child to receive from a Muslim religious group.

          I am not familiar with any Communists, and certainly not The Naked Communists; but I can tell you right now, I would much prefer my communist be fully clothed.

          • It is not that you have a different opinion than me, it is that your opinion serves communism at the expense of America.

            While Christianity is being stripped from our society, the same is not for Islam. Remember, where CA goes others follow.

            http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/islam.asp

            Do some research, read the agenda items listed above by Graywolf12. Tell me which ones the liberal progressives that control the Democrat party hasn’t adopted fully? Most are still being pursued today.

            Then realize that the people that created that list over 60 years ago did so with the intent to harm America.

          • Identifying with our differences rather than our similarities makes us dangerous to one another.
            I know that in my everyday life, it’s the principles of humility, kindness, empathy, patience, manners that are valued the most. The quality of my spiritual connection on any given day is reflected in how well I express these principles during my day-to-day interactions.
            How interesting that the further away from “us” our “leaders” get: Left-Right or In-the-Middle, the less they tend to express those principles.
            People have been whipping-up fear in people for centuries; it’s not true, these are not the worst of times or the end of times. A couple thousand years ago, Cicero prophesied:
            “Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
            Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
            Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
            Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
            Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
            Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
            Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
            ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

          • Keep that mindset for as long as you can. I shall review your post daily
            to remind myself of whom I once was, not whom I have become.

            Be
            warned that there is a group of liberal progressives that have hijacked
            the liberal ideology whom practice the teachings of Saul Alinsky. They
            do not identify with our similarities, but magnify our differences. They
            are not on these posts to unite, but to divide and keep divided.

            So let me rephrase my first sentence.

            It
            is not that you have a different opinion than me, it is that liberal
            progressives are leading a vast majority of liberals down a path towards
            socialism/Communism. The goal of this organization is NOT to focus or
            advance Humanitarian efforts as their name implies, but to fight
            Christianity by using agenda item #16 from the book, “The Naked
            Communist.”

            16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

          • The group the recipients are getting the boxes from are called Operation CHRISTMAS Child. If they don’t want their child “indoctrinated” with a gift for CHRISTMAS don’t come and take one! The Atheists need to stop ruining Christmas. If you don’t believe in Christmas, stop giving gifts and shopping for my holiday. It isn’t a Holiday Tree or gifts, they are Christmas trees/gifts. Don’t participate if it offends you!!!!!

          • That’s one way to apply your faith and religious teaching in your life.
            Your response reminded me of a conversation I had with a friend a few years ago; we share a similar relaxed/accepting attitude as we move through life; and I was surprised when he described his relationship with his faith much as “a sturdy fence in the backyard”, helping him make the ‘right’ decisions with rigid adherence to structure.
            I was, surprised we were so outwardly-similar, with such vastly different views. My personal connection to faith is more intrinsic: like a clear mountain stream, hidden in hills; faith is the moral-compass I use to maneuver through life as kindly and efficiently as possible. My faith is like a wide-open meadow, not one fence or gate!
            Both ways of thinking are equally good. Just because he’s right, doesn’t mean I’m wrong.
            It’s when I try to impose my beliefs and judgements on others that I run the risk of engaging in spiritually corrupt behavior; the only God-like qualities I want to keep practicing are the same qualities that have been shared with me on many occasions: Grace, love, compassion, and always, always, (okay…almost always!), Kindness.
            Merry Christmas, Susy.

      • W ay to go Comrade. Lenin would be proud of you. Is there a nursing school in this country that DOES NOT teach progressivism first, second, and always. Go to some of those countries and see how God might just give the people a glimmer of hope.

        • I don’t believe attempting to understand why someone else has a different point of view than I do is analogous to Communism.

          It wasn’t difficult for me to imagine that the same amount of specific religious detail would absolutely not be okay for my child to receive from a Muslim religious group.

          • Read REAL history. The country was formed on CHRISTIAN values. What were your views before nursing school??? How much non-religion was sprinkled in your education? Having spent 44 years as a Clinical laboratory Director I am well aware of how the change in the beliefs of nurses changed from 1959 to today.

          • There has been a cultural change concerning many different religious and political ideas since 1959; perhaps the change you perceive in RNs is a reflection of the change in American culture in general.

            As a weapons-trained Air Force Veteran and Registered Nurse; I spend my time in the service of my patients, my staff, and any other person who needs assistance.

            To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin, “I treat the other man like a gentleman, not because he is one, but because I am one”.

            I also use this anonymous forum as an opportunity to share views on incendiary topics that most people aren’t comfortable talking about face-to-face. The name calling and character-assassination that occurs when someone doesn’t share the same view as another person, is an unfortunate byproduct of the throw-away culture we live in.

            Lacking a strong spiritual base as a firm foundation; people don’t seem to be as connected to America 1st, Political Party 2nd; there’s a real Religion & Politics-As-Sports-team mentality dividing our country. When people want to get caught-up in name calling and titter-tatting over details (“oh yeah, if Clinton lied about this, then what about when Trump/Bush lied about that…”, and “all or nothing” statements) is a fantastic waste of time.

            However, my experience has been more positive than negative, overall; and my empathy and understanding for people that don’t share my exact world views has been expanded since finding my way into this forum.

            Thank you for taking time to share your views with me today.
            Merry Christmas, Graywolf12.

          • I spent 1958 to 1979 in USAF as a laboratory director. Biomedical Science Corp. Merry Christmas.

          • Thank you for your service, Sir…you, and your contemporaries, have been memorialized as “The Greatest Generation” for good reason.

          • To PREVENT (as in this case) another’s point of view (religious or not) by force is certainly analogous to Communism.
            As far as charity in the name of Allah, assuming it didn’t maim or kill it’s intended recipients, Would most likely be just as graciously accepted.

          • Operation Christmas Child hasn’t been prevented from doing anything; it’s just the venue that needs to be reconsidered:
            “The American Humanist Association spoiled the holidays this year by taking a Colorado public school to court, forcing them to withdraw from their participation in Operation Christmas Child – a nonprofit charity that encourages students to send care packages to poverty-stricken children around the world. These packages include basic hygienic products and school supplies for kids who have never seen a PlayStation in their lives…but they also include a little message about Jesus Christ…’These boxes are filled with school supplies and basic hygiene items,’ said Becket Law’s Kristina Arriaga. ‘It’s heartbreaking enough that there are children who will receive nothing but a toothbrush for Christmas. The American Humanist Association would deny them even that?”

            The amount of detailed, specific information (allegedly) that the children were receiving from this Christian organization while they were helping prepare gifts to send to less fortunate children around the world seems excessive. There’s a big difference in a simple spiritual message of grace and charity, shared as background information while preparing gifts for others; and proselytizing their particular brand of Religion, over and over again.

            More distressing to me is the fact that the non-profit charity, Operation Christmas Child’ wouldn’t send their charity’s information home; so the parents and children who would enjoy participating in this charity; to continue to do so, after school.

            I certainly hope Operation Christmas Child didn’t let the Humanist group’s request to operate their voluntary campaign elsewhere, diminish their enthusiasm in getting these gifts lovingly sent to the poverty-stricken children in other countries.

          • As much as you feel it’s right to discriminate against religion (so much as to even prevent a charitable organization from helping those less fortunate) should only encourage more who are invested in their religious beliefs.
            Please notice in my original comment, I have allowed for charity to be provided for by Muslims should they wish, and with that also implied any charity, religious or not would have (and damn well should have) been allowed to help the less fortunate.
            It is distressing, that any group would have to hide a religious affiliation in order to help others (assuming this were true) but you won’t convince me that this is any worse than tyrannies being imposed upon the religious, either by misunderstood interpretations of our constitution, or radical liberalism run amok.

          • “Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.
            So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men;
            Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
            But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
            so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”-Matthew 6:1-4

          • I would think the Lord prefers charity be received by those in need, without an argument wether religion was involved or not.
            Those who would deny the needy, especially where his name (Christ) is involved should be more concerned where they spend eternity.

      • So you are a lawyer as well as an “advocate nurse”? whatever that is…

        • This is a good time and place to live; I honor this freedom to rapidly access information by going directly to the source of the subject being discussed, when possible.

          Unlike cold-war Russia or Germany or any other media-restricted societies; Americans are not held hostage to propaganda-only information like the Europeans before WWI & WWII; We are in an super-fast, super-free, information-rich society.

          We’ve got the good stuff On-Tap, 24/7: CDC, WHO, Supreme Court decisions-past and present, Legislative bills and the stupid-riders…I don’t spend a lot of time wondering if something is true, a couple quick vetting tips…and you know what? We Are All Journalists, today.

      • Except for the fact, it is mere information. There is no requirement the recipient has to read the information to receive the Christmas gifts. Anything else?

        • The children at the school wrapping the gifts were the ones receiving what was considered an overabundance of religious details, it was on their behalf that the lawsuit was filed. It doesn’t appear to be concerned with info supplied to the recipients. Certainly, if my little girl had come home from school with a note from the teacher, e.g.: “Operation Gift Exchange Is not occurring on school campus this year to respect the concerns about separation of church and state, anyone interested in participating may meet at……” I would’ve definitely supported that event with my daughter.

          • Unless this operation was a lesson intended to teach the children a specific lesson I see no problem encouraging school children to be charitable to others less fortunate than themselves. As for Christian charity towards others, any organization that has a problem with the golden rule, one would certainly have difficulty understanding their motives.

          • Perhaps that is what the judge thought, also; if I remember correctly, the original lawsuit was dismissed.

    • They CAN’T!!

    • Liberal is an oxymoron – there is absolutely nothing liberal about these self centered, hypocritical cry babies. What they need is the proverbial kick in the ass their parents never gave them

      • They are victims of ideological subversion.

        https://youtu.be/mqSV72VNnV0

      • Kick in the ass is right! these Atheist morons flatter themselves when they go around trying to make everybody else miserable and lost like they choose to be,and these killjoy scrooges want to inflict their wishes on other less fortunate people? i’ll get censored for this,but what assholes! nobody wants to hear about these people,but somehow they manage to undermine our right to a happy holiday-and to all these poison pills i truly say,GO SCROOGE YOURSELVES!!

      • Liberal is not an oxymoron, a Liberal is a moron – forget the oxy. People like this spread more pain and suffering throughout the world. Last time I checked the rights of humanists, atheists, and other non-religious Americans were not being challenged by gifts to poor children no matter what is written in the package carrying the gifts. If these people had any common sense at all they would be doing their own gifts for poor children program. But their Liberal mind set won’t let them do good, only block those who attempt to do so and call it progressive. They are just sad people. Jesus loves them too.

      • What they need is Christ Jesus in their hearts!

    • Simple. Find them and beat the living CRAP out of all of them..Sounds barbaric, well it’s the only thing those IDIOTS will understand. They are useless in this world anyway. KNOCK THE CRAP out of them.

    • No, not oxymoron, just morons! Lol! They denied extremely poor children basic human needs; the cruelty and inhumanity of these people is beyond my comprehension

    • It’s a communist globalist organization run by scumbags

  2. Take everything you hear from a liberal progressive as if they were lying.

    If they keep on naming their “Associations” with oxymorons they deserve nothing less.

  3. If they had thrown in a copy of the qur’an there wouldn’t have been any problem.

  4. “American Humanist”? Hum, sounds like a take off from Seinfeld. Gorges “Human League”.

  5. Post the names, addresses and email addresses of the clowns in this organization and let the fun begin.

  6. We’ve taken God out of schools and out of our lives. Stop and look what has happened to this once great country. If we abandon God he will abandon us, so I ask where lies your faith, with man or God. You will reap what you sew.

    • I would disagree with the comment, “God will abandon us”. God or bad, we who acknowledge Him are still his children. Our nation was originally founded on Godly principles and laws. The scriptures note that what is given over into God’s hands can never be lost by Him. Keep your faith un-shocked. He is still in control and seated on His heavenly throne!

  7. American Humanist Association, you’ve earned a fitting life in the here after.
    Right next to Beelzebub in Hell.
    While on earth you can kiss my A$$

  8. I feel sorry for the children that are affected by these heartless pricks.

  9. I still don’t understand why liberals think that everyone else’s business is their business. Tolerance is not in their vocabulary. The court should tell the atheist group to STFU and stick it!

  10. “The humanist message apparently includes the maxim: It’s better not to give at all than to give in the name of Christ.”
    No dummy, but it does include giving freely and of your own heart without having a religious agenda, especially when you are using our tax funded institutions.

  11. The AHA should be an acronym for Asinine Heartless Atheists… there’s NOTHING ‘humanist’ about their activities. How much effort is the AHA putting into banning Islam, I’d like to know?? If they won’t do something about THAT religion, they should back off from attacking Christianity!! Fair is fair, right?

  12. Could the school have just sent the gifts without the religious message? That would have eliminated the problem of a public school establishing religion in defiance of the U.S. constitution.

    • It’s freedom OF religion. Not freedom FROM religion. Have you ever actually read the constitution, or just the liberal version of it. Some children choosing to help others in God’s name is not ‘establishing religion’ or defying anything. Except liberal dominance and control. Notice they have no problem with Muslims expressing themselves anytime, anywhere. This isn’t about keeping religion out of school. This is about keeping ONE religion out of everything.
      It’s hypocritical narrow minded bigotry at its worst. There’s precious little humanism in ‘secular humanism’. They simply want to impose their ‘beliefs’ on everyone else, while spouting a lot of meaningless words about a one sided tolerance. If they want to be grim, joyless, shallow, empty, self absorbed people that’s their choice. Others choose differently. They should be allowed to in a country that’s supposed to be free, for everyone. Not just the chosen few.

      • Wrong. It’s called the Establishment Clause for a reason. Try actually reading the Constitution.

        • Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…

          The Establishment Clause was written by Congressman James Madison in 1789, who derived it from discussions in the First Congress of various drafts that would become the amendments comprising the Bill of Rights. The second half of the Establishment Clause includes the Free Exercise Clause, which guarantees freedom from governmental interference in both private and public religious affairs of all kinds.
          Have you read it?

          • “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment
            of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
            These opening words of the First Amendment to the Constitution set forth a dual guarantee of religious liberty. Both the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause operate to protect the religious liberty and freedom of conscience of all Americans. Quoting Thomas Jefferson, the Supreme Court has stated that the Establishment Clause was intended to accomplish this end by erecting a “wall of separation between Church and State.” Everson v. Board of Educ. of Ewing, 330 U.S. 1, 15-16 (1947).

            It is one of the fundamental principles of the Supreme Court’s Establishment Clause jurisprudence that the Constitution forbids not only state practices that “aid one religion . . . or prefer one religion over another,” but also those practices that “aid all religions” and thus endorse or prefer religion over nonreligion. Everson, 330 U.S. at 15. See Wallace v. Jaffree, 472 U.S. 38, 53 (1985)(“[T]he individual freedom of conscience protected by the First Amendment embraces the right to select any religious faith or none at all”); see also County of Allegheny v. ACLU Greater Pittsburgh Chapter, 492 U.S. 573, 589-94, 598-602 (1989); Texas Monthly, Inc. v. Bullock, 489 U.S. 1, 17 (1989); Torcaso v. Watkins, 367 U.S. 488, 495 (1961).

          • I think you need to read this again.

          • You’re examples from 1961 through most of the 80s mirror how powerful the liberal, anti-American establishment have become.
            The Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves.

          • You are so right.
            Thank you.

        • YOU ARE WRONG.
          It couldn’t be clearer, especially where in these quotes “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…..”
          To clarify it means the government can have no preference for one relgion over another, nor can it prevent one from expressing or promoting his (or her) chosen faith.

          Natalie is correct!!

      • Exactly! well said Natalie

    • Of course a machete or two would have been fine. Keeping the hatred real in today’s world would have been far more preferable than reference to the real and loving God.

      • You left out an AK-47 or M-16 or two also. Sending them guns, machetes, knives or bombs would have been acceptable. Just NO religious material!! Moronic @$$HOLES!

  13. These organizations have no right to interfere with religious things as they are not religions. what the hell is the matter with our judges?all they all atheists

  14. So this is their mission statement; We strive to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted and respected way to live life. We are accomplishing this through our defense of civil liberties and secular governance, by our outreach to the growing number of people without traditional religious faith, and through a continued refinement and advancement of the humanist worldview.
    Okay, so you want to reach out to the growing number of people without traditional religious beliefs. So then why target a public school who did not ask for your intervention. You ruined Christmas for thousands of children around the world in your so called humanist beliefs. Why don’t you just leave people alone. Your progressive society, I want nothing to do with. I choose to believe in God, that is my right, and if others believe in God, that is their right. It is not your right to stop that belief and punish children just because you think there is no God. Your organization is pitiful, disgusting and immoral. I hope you feel real proud of yourself for what you have done.

    • Well said. These petty, self absorbed, spiteful people apparently think they can gain acceptance and respect by disrespecting others and making sure they are accepted nowhere. Continued refinement and advancement of the humanist worldview apparently includes stamping out only one religion, Christianity. And punishing children who try to help other, less fortunate children. They expose themselves for what they are everytime they open their mouths, narrow minded, hateful, hypocritical, selectively tolerant bigot’s.

    • If I had a hall of fame for greatest posts or responses of all time, I’d put this one in the top 10. Great job!

  15. Since there is no God, no supreme Being, then why would it matter if these kids send a nice gift that happens to contain a bit of propaganda, then what difference in the big, overall picture? No God – no answered prayers – no Truth – kids get their toothbrushes, kids get to feel good about helping others, and no one harmed….

  16. We should find out the names and addresses of these “people” and use their own tactics against them! Picket their houses, picket the businesses that serve them and/or contribute to them, follow them about and express your own First Amendment rights wherever you find them !

    • So funny, how the liberal elites feel this is a form of domestic terrorism when it happens to them.
      Damn Freedom of Speech !!!! (sarcasm)

  17. I bet Hillary is their model spokesperson. Her and Sharpino..

  18. Atheist are so full of themselves they have not considered that they are cheating themselves.

    • This is why I believe.
      Did you EVER notice that most laws are made around Moral and Christian viewpoints? One for example, “Thou shall not kill( several people have said this is incorrect as the original version said “MURDER” not kill) This is one of the Commandments of God and morally ALL people, religious or not, subscribe to this. General consensus!
      Also, I’d much, much rather believe and be wrong than NOT believe and be wrong!! In the first instance it’s, “oh well I wasted my time believing but morally I was a good citizen”!
      In the second instance it’s, OMG, oh sh!t, I SHOULD HAVE believed as ETERNITY is an awful, awful long time to be in Hell!! I hear talk from the Bible it’s awfully hot and definitively not a place I’d like to stay for eternity! If Hell doesn’t exist you’re safe. If it does I hope you like it “HOT”!

  19. Somehow I suspect there is another ‘side’ to this story that Mr. “admin” is not telling. Just the Title screams of a LIE. “Atheist’s” are people too. Many with their own children. I suspect it has more to do with the legal issues regarding the use of Public Property.
    I do have serious argument with how the First Amendment regarding “The Separation of Church and State” is being interpreted. Government is a “For the People”, “By the People” entity. Which should include people of religion, not only different sex or skin color. There should be nothing against the First Amendment to prohibit a School ( or any other Government agency) from renting or leasing property to a religious organization. Yet, many of the idiots we elect to public office seem to be confused about this.

  20. why does anyone give in ,to these self righteous twerps,tell them to pound sand,and get stuffed
    it’s past time to say not just NO BUT HELL NO

  21. The American Humanist Association works to protect the rights of humanists, atheists, and other non-religious Americans,” the AHA’s website says. From ever having to have religion( Christianity/Judaism) be seen of or heard.
    There is no Constitutional right to not be offended. The problem with liberals is that they are in a premanent offended state. NO Joy is even in their Mudville.
    The best think tpo do to them is break their nose when they stick it in your business.

  22. May God Almighty, Who the atheists openly and aggressively deny, judge every one of these miserable members of the American Humanist Association in such a way that there is no question from where the judgment comes! May every “gift” or action from which these fools benefit be taken from them! They are selfish, obnoxious, arrogant, hateful fools!

  23. What a terrible thing for them to do. How can they call themselves “humanists” when they have no humanity in them at all? As for the religious aspect of it, would they have been so vehement and vile if it would have been Muslim literature? No way. But because it was Christian literature they blew a gasket. I feel so sad and angry for the children who were denied basic human needs because of these heartless idiots.

  24. Where else but that nest of liberals in Colorado ? They ruined the entire state when they moved in and brought their liberal agenda along with them. It has been quite effective as you can plainly see.

    • I told these Co. @$$HOLES when they legalized marijuana the State was gonna go to hell! Welcome to Hell may I put up your pitch fork and cape? Please put on the booties so your hooves don’t scratch the floor!!
      I knew the State was F’d up when I moved here but NOT to the extent it now is!!

    • We’re it not for Denver/Boulder, Colorado would still be a reliable red state. Those fktards have ruined it….they need to be rounded up and shipped back to CA.

  25. Disgusting group of non-humans posing as AHA

  26. good_night_good_luck

    oh dear jesus, moses, muhammed. hear my prayer and save me! from your followers…..
    god bless the aha

  27. if o-abysmal can list veterans as terrorists then these ultra dumb-assed organizations should be considered ultra terrorists.

  28. The “Humanist” aspect must be removed from that organization’s name because they have absolutely NOTHING to do with humanity — nothing, nada, zero. Who do they think they are kidding with their high and mighty “creed”? Those busy bodies are nothing more than lonely old biddies that need to feel they are important by making children suffer. Can you say Scrooge Scum?

    My questions for every sane Christian American: WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO STAND UP FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL CHRISTIANS? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO BECOME A “CHRISTIAN WARRIOR” AND FIGHT BACK FOR CHRISTIAN CHILDREN WHO CAN’T FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES? It’s time to choose sides and make your voice heard for ALL Christians around the world. If you truly are a Christian, then let the world know by defending all Christians from the nonChristian sinners. It is time to be proactive…the time is now!

    • Amen, Guardian Flame!

    • Don’t you hate liars? That organization should close their doors because they lie about who they are. Their title should be The Lousy Liberal Ladies clan. Hopefully their group collapses into a puddle of brown sugar like the “Witches (with a “B”) they are when confronted with the real reason for their twisted logic! DISGUSTING OLD HAGS!

  29. THERE IS NOTHING HUMAN ABOUT THEM………THEY ARE OBAMA’S ROBOTS…….

  30. The American Humanist Association have consciences seared with a hot iron. What greater good of humanity? They would rather these impoverished children receive nothing from them or anyone, than to receive something with a positive message on it? Self-centered fools.

  31. When are the organizations, schools, city councils going to stand up to these fools who are so miserable they want everyone else to be miserable as well. IF the groups just said screw you to these “terrorists” (and that’s exactly what they are with their threats), and did what THEY believe is right, wouldn’t it be a much better world.

  32. Just about the time you think you’ve heard the lowest, here comes another organization to garner notice by screwing charitable organizations. And I thought I had heard it all….

    • Just when you thought you heard it all. . . You haven’t heard it all; some other radical organization will try to out-radical them. Radical individuals and organizations like to see what outrageous things they can get away with.

  33. They are lying, they should be called anti humanitarian. That a court allowed them to win is a question of what is wrong with our legal system? Liberals calling themselves liberal is also a lie. The only rights that they respect is their own. They are close minded cult of hate.

  34. You Atheist are the scum of the earth!! There are kids who are homeless and going hungry in this nation, AND this is how you “contribute” to society!! You make me sick!!

  35. Atheists are like hemorrhoids, the sooner you get rid of them the better you feel.

  36. michael schimanski

    to them it’s my way or the highway , no matter who they hurt . they claim to care but they really don’t . They’re the type that like to sit back and say , look see what we do to help needy people .

  37. Are there any intelligent, caring individuals in the atheist circle?!

  38. MR_Mr_Deplorable_Hapla

    And no one asks the ‘Humanists” how many kids they took care of this Winter Solstice,,

  39. It was like the J Witness’s that don’t believe in Christmas we’re the first in line to get ‘their gift’! It’s something no one believes in, but it’s better to receive, than to give!!! I feel better to give, but that I learned from my Mother & Grandmothers!!!

  40. Well; I Sincerely Hope “THE COLORADO COURT VOTED THIS ISSUE DOWN”!! THIS IS “DISGUSTING”!! WHY DO ANTI-CHRIST MINORITIES EVEN GET TO RAISE ALL THIS HAVOC???? Jim

  41. Why is it that these dirtbag organizations go all out to make sure that Christians don’t press their beliefs on others, but the jack azzes have no problem pushing their belief of there being no God down everyone’s throat? After all, that is also a belief, swearing there is no God! Why do they think their belief over rules the belief that their is a God? Maybe we go to court like they do to have their belief put under judicial rules too!

  42. Why does this matter to people that proudly proclaim they have no faith?

    They seem to be obsessed with what, they say, doesn’t exist.

    Real atheists would have no more concern for religion than a hallway color in a building they will never see.

  43. Just a bunch of angry radicals who can’t stand to see anyone happy. They have no religious faith and they want to be certain no one else does either.

    They believe their right to NOT have religious faith overrides your right to have religious faith.

  44. Instead of suing to prevent a religious message from being enclosed with gift packages to the needy, why not use the money and effort expended in that venture to include YOUR message in YOUR gift packages. That way the number of packages are increased rather than diminished; wouldn’t that be a more “Humane” action?

  45. Shame on every single person that participated in the shameful act of depriving innocent children of a few moments of joy.

  46. Let us look at this another way, no one ever expects to receive a gift of hygiene products nor anything else from Islam, do they?
    So perhaps the information about God/Jesus could have been left out of the boxes since no one ever expects anything good from Islam and they might just automatically know this gift box was from Christians…maybe?
    I know, I’m just speculating and wishing and perhaps finding a way around the Humanist’s and the ACLU.

  47. An Atheist group stole from the poor? You do mean the Democrat Party, don’t you! They don’t believe in God and steal from poor and working poor people all the time in the form of taxes and regulations.

  48. GOD tells us that there is a special punishment for the atheists. We must study the bible Book x Book, Chapter x Chapter and Verse x Verse.

  49. So the pseudo-intellectual morons of the AHA can have the psychological satisfaction of knowing that they furthered the cause of deprivation through ignorance. God has a special place reserved for these folks. It is called “Hell,” and it is not a state of mind. We are reminded, however, that justice delayed IS justice denied, on this earth.

  50. Just curious: is December 25th the ONLY time these pitiful children need help? I don’t understand the need to promote a pagan holiday when these children need help EVERY DAY of the yr. I do not agree or disagree with the commies as the American school children should be allowed to send xmas gifts or whatever they want to call them. I just question their teachers NOT teaching that we should help other human beings EVERY day of the yr. THAT is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He never celebrated a birthday much less HIS own.

  51. The AHA has no more “RIGHTS” to force “Government” to comply with their beliefs than the Muslims have to force Government to comply with their beliefs. This nation, it’s laws and it’s “GOVERNMENT” was created based on the principles and doctrines of “Christianity”, and that can not be changed without destroying our type of government in the process. We’ve seen all the stupidity of the Democrats and liberals for the last 8 years, it’s time the people who understand the danger they present to this country take a stand against it, even if it’s in the streets with a gun, it’s no more than what people expect from the police and Military.

  52. well that low life no matter who it is …but for atheist they don’t care they have no life here on earth and they for sure will not have a good afterlife that’s for sure and they’ll see that but then it will be to late …but that’s there choice my self i’ll keep my faith in CHRIST …to each his own I guess …but people need to pray for these and all lost people anyway

  53. these pos are going to think different when they stand before god and he sends them to hell,their going to have a lot of company there.these stupid people are doomed haven’t they seen the moon turn blood red it’s all explained in the bible gods return is imminent and these fools are completly ignorant of this fact everything that is happening now is fortold in the bible.

  54. If they are called the American Humanist Association. Then they have a lot to learn about being a descent human being then. I don’t call that being human and caring. But a evil Inhuman – mean human being. I as one will fight every step against the American Humanist Association. I think they should dissemble there organization. As there not fit to be called the American Humanist Organization. I hope they can’t sleep good at night knowing they took toys etc from poor children. Hey! American Humanist Association. Read the bible about Lazarius. And what happened to the one who had everything . And refused to give Lazarius food to eat. Where Lazarius went to. And what happened to the one who refused Lazarius food. As he died. That person who refused Lazarius is you American Humanist Association. God will punish you for your sins.

  55. Like most liberals, this group has no set of firm values — no moral compass — other than the one to which they subscribe: “If it feels good, just do it.”

  56. Why are these scumbags even in the US move to Cuba you pack of lowlife shits, nobody wants you in the US if you act like morons.

  57. What the Operation Christmas Child charity does is none of the Atheist’s business. It is not a matter of left or right either. The atheists are in a category all of their own. and they certainly not Humanist’s of any kind and just selfish hypocrites.

  58. The solution is easy – they should simply stop proselytizing and let their good deeds speak for themselves. Those recipients who are curious about the religious underpinnings of this mixed religious/secular holiday can readily find the information the seek. The fact that this public entity insists – to their legal detriment – on proselytizing through Operation Christmas Child underscores that their motive is much more about spreading their religious message than it is about helping needy children. Put plainly, their actions demonstrate that the real goal is to spread their religious beliefs, and they are using the desperation of needy children to help accomplish that goal.

  59. What a bunch of self serving egotistical scumbags; forcing their filthy beliefs on the rest of the nation; screw them!

  60. Can we just start cracking progressives heads yet?

  61. The philosophy of the AHA: it’s more humanitarian to give NOTHING to children in need than to possibly taint them with the the name of Jesus.

  62. Ask the assho33at AHA, just what they have ever done in a positive sense, to help their fellow mankind; or are they just out blowing bullsh*t in the wind?
