2009 Tree of Bullhockey
It is that time of year – cold weather (despite the imminent peril of AGW), 10 foot tall inflatable snowman scenes, and 24 hour sales everywhere you turn. Yes, my friends, it is time for the 2009 Tree of Bullhockey to be displayed on the lawn of the West Chester Courthouse. What is that, you ask? A recent article posted on the Evening Bulletin website describes this ‘tree’:
...a gaudy, out-of-place, and inappropriate fourth monstrosity of a display tarnishing the courthouse lawn for the third year in a row. It’s called the Tree of Knowledge, a grotesque and kitschy shrine to Godlessness sponsored by the Freethought Society of Greater Philadelphia.
Indeed, the Freethought Society and their founder Margaret Downey are agents of the Enemy in every regard and their garish tree replete with “ornaments” in the shape of laminated book covers by prominent atheists is in poor taste. Of the hundreds of book titles hanging on the tree some include A Devil’s Chaplain and The God Delusion by avowed doubter Richard Dawkins, Misquoting Jesus by Bart Ehrman, and The End of Faith by Sam Harris.
Personally, I’d say the ‘freethought’ society corners the market on misquoting Jesus. Perhaps they are still fuming since Jesus bi**hslapped them out of his Father’s house 2000 + years ago.
On this ‘tree’ you can find any number of book covers claiming the fraud of Christianity, yet not one book cover proclaiming the fraud of islam. If they truly had the courage of their atheist convictions, they would be impelled to denounce islam as the biggest fraud of mankind. But they won’t, and that cowardice reveals their true bigoted nature.
