American Atheists want to "Keep the MERRY" and "Dump the MYTH" -- to keep Santa, Christmas presents, and Jingle Bells, and dump Jesus Christ, who in the fullness of time, entered human history as God incarnate, was crucified, died, and buried in atonement for our sins, and then raised again as the New Adam through whom we have hope of eternal life -- an indispensable basis for all merriment, happiness, and joy.
How hollow the hearts and how absurd the thoughts of American Atheists who strive so mightily to generate merriment and hope against the gathering shadows of night -- by their own reasoning a night of nothingness cloaking an abyss of despair.
