Atheists Trying to ‘Abort Christ’

The world is a fascinating place according to Sarah Palin. In a speech at Liberty University on Saturday, the former vice presidential candidate addressed the so-called "war on Christmas," invoking the name of Thomas Jefferson to prove her point (never mind all those writings of his on the separation of church and state). “Thomas Jefferson today, he would recognize those who would want to try to ignore that Jesus is the reason for the season, those who would want to try to abort Christ from Christmas," Palin said. "He would recognize, for the most part, these are angry atheists armed with an attorney. They are not the majority of Americans.” She added that, like Jefferson, Christians should refuse to "sit down and shut up."
