The withering fossil also claims "They [Atheists] want to steal your holiday away"

Yesterday on the 700 Club, Christian relic Pat Robertson rose from the primordial ashes once again to discharge yet another irresponsible and abhorrent comment, the only kind he knows how to utter.
Robertson said this:
"Its, well, Christmas all over again. The Grinch is trying to steal our holiday. It’s been so beautiful, the nation comes together, we sing Christmas carols, we give gifts to each other, we have lighted trees, and it’s just a beautiful thing. Atheists don’t like our happiness, they don’t want you to be happy, they want you to be miserable. They’re miserable, so they want you to be miserable. So they want to steal your holiday away from you."
watch the clip, if for no other reason but to see for yourself that he actually said this
In true Bill O' Reilly fashion, Robertson claims that Christmas is once again threatened by...well, anyone they dislike. This time, it's those damned atheists. You know, those who sit around all day planning evil deeds and conspiring how they will stop Christmas from coming. Because after all, that's what atheists do. They hate Christmas so much, they are actually all gathered together as we speak plotting how they will stop Christmas shoppers from shopping, purchasing trees and decorating them, singing Christmas carols, entering places of worship and showing love to their family members.
We all know this will take a massive effort by the atheists. It will also take a lot of time. The atheists just might have to take some time off from doing what they usually do: Worshipping Satan, burning crosses, reading Mein Kampf and kidnapping and molesting your children. Yes, that's right, those atheists must be stopped, and thank God for prophets like Pat Robertson who warn us of these barbaric dregs of humanity.
All sarcasm aside, I must conclude that it is now official: Pat Robertson must be taken away and placed inside a mental institution with its doors locked, and the key needs to be melted down and inserted inside Robertsons' skull right next to the three or four steel plates that already rest there.
Not only is his comment one of the most asinine comments that can be uttered by a human being let alone someone who calls himself "godly", but imagine if you will the level of sheer stupidity that is required for a person to actually believe that, although atheists obviously do not celebrate Christ during this season, they are "miserable" and want everyone else to be miserable.
It is inconceivable to imagine the level of arrogance it takes to literally believe that atheists have nothing to celebrate and no reason to be happy during the Christmas season. The audacity of this archaic Christian prick to even imply that anyone who is not a Christian is unhappy, miserable and has no reason to celebrate during the holiday season brings compassionless inhumanity to a new low, even for Robertson.
The unbelievable irony here is that atheists and agnostics are not the ones sitting around with nothing better to do with their time than to emit detestable comments like this about religious people. It is usually the ones whose job it is to practice refraining from these types of comments who are the very ones speaking them.
If any groups of people are more joyous during the holiday season, it would most likely be atheists and agnostics, for these people are more humanitarian-centered than that of the religious. Religious people tend to be more dependent on an invisible ghost in the sky, looking down on them in judgement of whether they are doing their religious duty of heaping judgement upon others [case-in-point: Robertson's behavior]. Atheists and agnostics do not possess holier-than-thou attitudes toward their fellow man. They treat others like human beings. This is why there is less crime committed by atheists and agnostics as opposed to the unsurprisingly high homicidal rate of the religious. But Robertson wants you to believe it is just the opposite.
Robertson wants us to believe he and every other Christian is a resident of Whoville and atheists and agnostics are the Grinches; unhappy, miserable and wanting to steal everyone's fun. Even if that were the truth in Robertson's mind, there would be one act the residents of Whoville exhibited that he and most Christians would not imitate: forgiving and accepting those who stole from them.
I do not say this about too many people, but I wish Pat Robertson would rid us all of his company and depart this mortal coil before he makes another vile and heartless comment. If Robertson actually went an entire day without spewing a reprehensible comment, now that would be a Christmas miracle.
