I have no problem with people using Christmas as a time to see their families since everyone is off, I have a...not so much a problem, but it somewhat irritates me that people who aren't Christians use my religion as an excuse to get off work. I'm not sure if I'm getting that across properly.

We atheist are not using "your" religion as an excuse to stay home. Staying home and taking some vacation is just the norm for most people. Please stop being an ass about such a small thing. Sorry if I spoke wrongly for some of you atheist that might read this.

Staying home is normal, yes. But to say its because of Christmas, which is a Christian holiday, is using my religion as an excuse

It makes sense, though barring people from getting off work for religious holidays kind of opens a huge can of worms. Most of us already have a pretty hard time getting vacation time and taking away religious vacations kind of takes away a lot of R&R time and without some sort of balance in place it feels like people going, "I am better than everyone else because of what I believe in. No one but me deserves vacation time or time to observe their own religious holidays."

Granted, I have a huge chip on my shoulder against too much religion in my government after living in Utah for a year.

Thanksgiving- An American Holiday, if you're an American, then this Holiday applies to you

Independence Day(4th of July)- See Thanksgiving

Labor Day- See Thanksgiving

President's Day- See Thanksgiving

Memorial Day- See Thanksgiving

Veteran's Day- See Thanksgiving

New Year's Day- Applies to literally every person on the planet using the Julian Calendar.

So to explain my point, Christians who are also Americans apply to those holidays. There's no reason that they shouldn't celebrate them. The reason I believe Atheists shouldn't get those religious holidays off is because they don't partake in the religion. American Christians, however, do partake(for lack of a better term) in America. So there's no reason to say they can't celebrate those Holidays.

"The reason I believe Atheists shouldn't get those religious holidays off is because they don't partake in the religion."

These holidays (only one I can think of that's religious that we get time off for is Christmas) are now government secular holidays as well as religious ones. So your point is legally moot, regardless of whether you want the law to be selectively applied.
#496 - onyxleigion (02/16/2015) [-]
You're under the impression that the law has anything to do with a company letting people off work. We don't live in a socialistic society. The government can't force a company to let it's workers off on holidays. The workers could form a union, but as for making a law, it can't happen.

I'm taking the Christmas holiday because I like the fucking solstice. Deal with it.

Don't you mean Gregorian calendar. Julian calendar is the older, inaccurate one.

Probably. I was too lazy to double check which calendar.

So why can't we assume all holidays are everyone's holiday and give everyone a good excuse to take the day off? Some people see Christmas as a day to honor Christ and his birth, some people see it as a time to get together and see their extended family at a time they know every person is going to be off.

Explain to me which holidays you're talking about. (Yes, I know there are non Christian holidays, I just want to hear your specifics.)

Well, in the US we have Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Labor Day, President's Day, any holiday celebrating a recent historic person, Memorial Day, Vetran's Day, New Years Day and I'm pretty sure I'm missing a few.

Agree with you there. I've just met enough fuckards who say something extremely offensive, get called out on it, then go, "OH MAI STOP OPRESSING MUH FREEDOM OF SPEECH! I'M ALLOWED TO SAY WHATEVER I WANT WITHOUT PEOPLE TELLING ME I'M AN ASSHOLE I'M JUST TELLING THE TRUTH!"

Actually physical retaliation is bullshit and no one deserves to actually get punched for their opinion, let alone killed.
