We look at the mostly overhyped controversies surrounding the holiday season: a Loudoun County (VA) politician calls atheists "terrorists" and "fanatics," while Bloviatin' Bill O'Reilly calls us "fascists." Plus: The American Family Association has issued a "Scrooge Alert," urging the faithful not go give their holiday business to companies that "refuse" to mention "Christmas" in their advertising. (Jesus may be the reason for the season, but if you don't link his birthday to the consumerist orgy that is modern Christmas, shame on you.)

Finally, we off our suggestions for holiday gifts for nonbelievers. A reminder, you can shop at Amazon.com via American Freethought using this link and a small percentage of the purchase price will benefit this podcast.
