Lol! I remember! Too funny. Not for you, of course,

Tell her you're very excited about Easter...the time when Jesus comes out of his cave, and if he sees his shadow, it means six more weeks of winter.

Holy effing _____________!

I don't even know what to say after reading that chaotic miasma of religious spew. Wow, just wow.

And yeah, LOL I do remember your Christmas card. I said that, if I were you, I would send a similar atheistic card in return, including a postage stamp with a picture of Darwin on it.

For which I received a lecture by someone for being "no better than they [Christians] are."

Unfortunately, there are atheists and agnostics who apparently lack a sense of humor too.

Wow... the diagrams... and the crazy quotes all over the place... I mean, sure, it's funny in a sad way, but it's also rather creepy. It doesn't take much to imagine that scrawling all over the walls of a padded cell in an asylum.

Sorry that you're bombarded with such nonsense. I'm not really religious at all, and I always take the time to pick "religion neutral" Christmas cards since I have friends and family of different faiths, but it is downright rude to ram one's beliefs down the throat of another, even if it does come with funny diagrams including wiener roasts!

Ah I live in Fla, the Atheist joke down here is Jesus is my lawn care guy, and a great job he does! That one didn't fly well on Easter either.. *shrugs* It was a toss up ( on FB) between the lawn care joke or this meme, which I found infinitely more funny.. I think they should thank me...but what do I know

Wow that is really over the top. If my Dad could still write I would be receiving stuff like that also. Now he just types short, unrelenting "guilt trips" as if that's going to make a difference. Even if I were leaning toward religion again it would certainly turn me off so bad that I would run away screaming. Why why why do they do it? Is it to gain more "souls" for their cause to get "god" brownie points? I would say that's part of it, but not all. Good intentions or "concern" for one's soul situation is no excuse for crap like that. It's highly offensive to anyone who does not believe and "good intentions" is not a good enough reason to harass someone. Sorry you have to deal with that OP, if it makes you feel any better I get the same thing on occasion, albeit shorter now. That looks like the scribblings of a crazy person.

Default Atheist cards?

Where can I find atheist cards?
I found one site that gives them away! atheistcards.com
You just download them.

Here's a Christmas card I downloaded! Ha!

My favorite card - a really nice, festive drawing of the earth. Inside the card - Axial Tilt is the Reason for the Season.

It hits my buttons on all kinds of levels.
