Christians Mad as Hell over Humanist Ad Campaign

There is a growing number of atheists, agnostics and just plain ol' non-theists and people of non-Christian religions who do not celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday.

So why not be good for goodness' sake? That's the point of the American Humanist Association's ad campaign, which will run via Washington, DC bus cards throughout December. The campaign plays on the words from the familiar song, "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," which, unless Santa himself has become a religious symbol, can hardly offend any rational person. But you can count on Bill O'Reilly (aka Bill-O the Clown, for you Keith Olbermann fans) to take umbrage over the terrible "War on Christmas" throughout December.

Almost makes me want to tune in, just to see Bill-O's face turn red and green.
