In the past, I’ve complained about BlogHer excluding the men. Recently, I railed against the Mommy and Daddy Bloggers who ignore the childless. I preach inclusiveness on the blogosphere.
But am I really that inclusive, or am I a red-faced hypocrite?
Just look at the entries so far the The 2008 Blogger Christmahanukwanzaakah Online Holiday Concert that will be held on December 23, 2008:

Are you seeing how I am being a hypocrite? How I am discriminating against some of closest blogger friends?
Yes, I am talking about all of those bloggers who are godless heathens and indecisive waverers, those stubborn Atheists and Agnostics who strongly disagree with celebrating holidays based on so-called fantastical myths, who pooh-pooh these opiates for the week-willed, but still like to party as much as their fun-loving, faithful, religious brethren.
Who doesn’t like to sing? Recent research from Oxford University shows that even Charles Darwin loved to do karaoke at a tiki bar in the Galapagos Island as a way to relax after a long day developing his theory of Evolution.
So, before I am sued by the ACLU for excluding the non-religious, let me reveal that, for the first time in the history of Blogger Christmahanukwanzaakah Online Holiday Concerts, I will be accepting songs of Atheistic or Agnostic nature, as long as they are celebratory about life, nature, winter, or the beauty of the female body.
An example of an atheist song —
An example of an agnostic song —
As for everyone else who believes in some sort of God, or at least Santa Claus, a sign-up sheet is still available. The songs/videos must be sent to me or published by December 22 in order for them to be ready for the concert on December 23. If you have any technical questions, please email me.
Also, — and this is open to anyone — please send me a holiday photo of your tree, menorah, or family, so I can decorate the Holiday web post. If they want, the atheists can send in a photo of a rational polar bear playing in the snow.
