Totally stolen from the Friendly Atheist.

    Uh, okay… I know there’s supposed to be some kind of sight gag in making the atheist boyfriend an uncouth dolt who toasts kaiser rolls over the table candle, but apart from the breaking of the bread thing, I’m really not getting it.

    “Pay with a credit card because ‘In God We Trust’ is on all the money.”

    Okay, I can laugh at that. But why is the atheist portrayed as a pyromaniac who constantly steals food? I mean, I’m not constantly lighting fires…not after I started my medication, anyway.

    Joe Z – I’m with you! My WAG is that they showed Mr. A burnign the toast, becasue they didn’t want to show him burning down churches.

    IMO -I WOULD definitley bring up the Santa Clause thing!

    My poor girlfriend had to go through this at Thanksgiving we her very conservative family. Her technique was the simple direct approach, and her family responded well, but with expected concern. After all, they really do think I’m going to burn in hell. Luckily they had my mother, a fellow believer, to assist their understanding that I do not, in fact, eat babies.

    Thankfully, we all got through the event undamned. Now we get to hold our breaths until Christmas, when she gets to tell them she’s an atheist too. I suspect that will not go over nearly as well.
