Atheism caused financial crisis

Mad Max and the Meltdown
How we went from Christmas to crisis.

"This year we celebrate the desacralized "holidays" amid what is for many unprecedented economic ruin -- fortunes halved, jobs lost, homes foreclosed. People wonder, What happened? One man's theory: A nation whose people can't say "Merry Christmas" is a nation capable of ruining its own economy."

"The point for a healthy society of commerce and politics is not that religion saves, but that it keeps most of the players inside the chalk lines. We are erasing the chalk lines."

Wow I had no idea we atheists had such power! And everyone thought it was that silly republican party that caused all the problems with their deregulation of the market and their out of control spending. Ha! It was us atheists what did it!

While I agree that responsibility and restraint (the lack of these begets regret) are excellent virtues in financial matters, to say that lack of these set off "history's largest chain of moral hazard"(!) and that atheists' criticism of Southern evangelists is to blame is patently absurd. I would say that given the large number of those who consider themselves Christians, their religion has failed in teaching them to value responsibility and restraint. Rather than feeling regret, they are blaming the atheists (with no regret).

This makes as much sense as them saying god punished America with Hurricane Katrina because of the role the United States played in the expelling (eviction) of the Jews from Gaza. So we turned our backs on the Jews, the gods special chosen, according to them, and when get a horrendous storm. Now it's because some people say Happy Holidays instead of merry christmas we get a financial meltdown because the god is punishing us. Where the hell does it say in their bible that we must say merry christmas or we get punished.
