  2. at the risk of banning, I'm learning toward deletion but my strong belief in the freedom of speech is holding me back... On a (semi) related note, Conservative please unlock the page Penn Jillette so I can bring the facts up to date. Fnarrow 03:09, 4 May 2013 (EDT)

Other Thoughts

  1. I'm not sure why this particular article was singled out for deletion. The "tumbleweed gag" is a staple of internet forum and wiki communities. If it is decided that this article should be deleted for being "childish", then the following articles should be deleted as well:

The article was singled out because atheists do not like the fact that much of the world sees them as angry sourpusses. Conservative 09:14, 4 May 2013 (EDT)

True conservatives don't bow their knees to liberal mobs!

True conservatives don't bow their knees to liberal mobs - especially atheist/agnostic mobs! Hold your vote libs, but I am not unlocking the web page to pacify some humorless and thin-skinned liberals! :) "I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up . . . they have no holidays." - Henny YoungmanConservative 19:03, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

What's your understanding of the word, "mobs", Cons? AlanE 19:23, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

I actually laughed when I saw the page, it just doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the content of the site, such as the educational resources. KBeer 21:38, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

AlanE, a very unreasonable group of people who have difficulty controlling their emotions and focus on things which do not matter! :) Conservative 21:49, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
Cons, old mate; two against and one "wait and see" is not a "mob" by any definition of the word. (Unless it was three and a bit bottles of Bundy in NFQ - "How much ya drink last Sat'dee, Dick?" "Big mobs, mate, would you believe, ay.") AlanE 22:03, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

Actually I'm very good at controlling my emotions. Also I don't think typing a # and giving a four word reason requires a great deal of focus... KBeer 22:21, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

Labor Day

What about Labor Day? --AugustO 03:08, 11 April 2015 (EDT)

As far as a Labor Day article, show me an encyclopedia article from a reputable encyclopedia with the word atheism/atheist/atheists in it. You can't do it. They all use the words machinist, labor unions, etc. In addition, the holiday was founded by someone with the last name of Maguire and my guess is that he was an Irish-Catholic, blue collar worker and not an atheist.
Second, the article was entitled; "Atheist holidays filled with goodwill, charitableness and good cheer". Communist governments have often been tyrannical, enriched corrupt government dictators/officials while at the same time preaching equality and giving lip service to workers/laborers/International Workers Day/Labor Day. Given the pace that evangelical Christianity is spreading in China/Latin America/South America, Africa and various poor/developing countries, if the Lord tarries, I have my doubts that there will be any communists left by the end of the 21st century. So communists, who are not known for their cheerfulness, have even less to be cheerful about. See: Growth of Christianity in China and The rise of biblical creationism in Mexico and its effect on American creationism and Creationism is exploding in the fast growing country of Brazil and spilling into its South American neighbors and Third world/developing countries, poverty and the growth of biblical Christianity.
Regardless, China recently had a crackdown saying that if you are a communist, you have have to be an atheist (started cracking down on a previous little enforced rule) which is no doubt related to Christians infiltrating their ranks due to conversion, etc. [1] Right now, there are more Christians in China than members of the Communist Party and people are comparing Christianity eventually prevailing over the Roman Empire to present day Christians in China eventually prevailing over the communists.[2]
In addition, again the article was entitled; "Atheist holidays filled with goodwill, charitableness and good cheer". The rise of globalization, increasingly sophisticated robotics and debt laden Western governments trimming back on government worker benefits, etc. does not bode well for labor unions, the secular left/communists. Not a lot for them to be cheerful about. Conservative 09:49, 11 April 2015 (EDT)
