I Guess We're Just Gonna Have to Disagree to Disagree

A group called American Atheists has put up an anti-Christmas billboard near the Lincoln Tunnel which reads "You KNOW it's a Myth. This Season, Celebrate REASON!"

And so you would figure that an article reporting on this topic would of course inspire Christian individuals to post comments concerning the billboard. But the real question is: how quickly do the posts get to the topic of Obama's birth certificate? Well, here's the progression that gets us there: 11 posts in, Obama's an "atheist":

Because of course he's a communist Muslim. And a mere 4 posts later VOX114 is back with "Christians don't attend a 'church'":

And then 29 posts later, VOX114 is back with "militant homosexuals join the atheist movement..."

I'm beginning to suspect a troll and then we're almost thrown off track by abortion:

But thankfully, "someone else" comes along with the Obama birth certificate question:

And so we find that in the most ritualistic of ways, any comment section can get off topic into something that isn't a topic at all. Happy Cyber Monday, to the most famous red suited socialist in the mall.
