It actually makes my head hurt to try to make proper sense of that sentence in context.

Considering the facts:
1) Christmas is traditionally a celebration of the birth of Jesus.
2) Recently it has become a festival of unabashed excess and commercialism, much like the solstice festivals predating Christmas.
3) Many Christians are all too quick to condemn the commercialist aspect of Christmas.
4) Mother who apparently doesnt love her son, let alone her neighbor threatens to withdraw presents from atheist son.
5) Mother cites son's nonbelief in the divine birth of Jesus as reason for present withdrawl.
6) Since presents are in fact supposedly nothng to do with the true meaning of christmas this tactic makes no goddamn sense and the mother should actually only give presents to atheist friends and family members and deny them for christians, because of the 'true meaning' and so on.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Wait a sec....

"Because that's what Christmas is about, it's Jesus Christ"

And she's threatening him with loss of presents. What?


edit: Heh. I love how the dad is just kinda sitting there doing nothing.

Maybe he's actually a closet atheist but he's too scared of his uberbitch wife to stand by his son.

Jesus's birthday wasn't on Christmass.  The sheperds were attending their flock, making it around Spring.  The Romans made the date be on Christmass when they formed the Roman Catholic Church, sort of as an ad for pagans.  "You got a religion?  So do we!  And we have a holiday that is exactly at the same time!  Since our two religions are basically the same, convert to Christianity!"  Christmass actually falls on Winter Solstice...

I think he's just bringing up a valid point of how stupid the mother really is. I know many devout Catholics who are quite aware of when Jesus would have actually been born, and why they say it's around christmas. Actually if I was that kid I would have probably pointed that out, and then pointed out the above then pointed out how she has turned Jesus' birthday into a tool for intimidation and consumerism  ;D

Sorry Daxx, but it had to be said.  Besides, it is on topic, since the movie is about religion and Christmass.  The religion thread is for debating about religion, and all scholars agree (Religious or not) that Christmass is an incorrect date.  Its the thought that counts...

We have mentioned the Christmas (note one "s") thing at least several times in the Religion thread. It's tedious to hear it again and again, especially when it's offtopic. Your comment belongs in that thread (although it really doesn't even belong there, since it's not bringing much new to the table).

I saw this before. But, there is another explanation form this. Paraphrased from Scientific American, a person that is blind because of damage to the occipital lobe (where sight is processed into conscious thought), can still "see," even though they don't consciously see. This is because the reptillian part of the brain (I think that's the stem) registers sight, even though the person is unaware. In tests, when a person blind this way can always reach to the object they are asked to reach to. Wierd.
