A Christmas Shelter
Scottish comedian and writer Janey Godley kindly allowed Greenteeth to republish her christmas fiction 'A Christmas Shelter'. This poignant Christmas story with a wry twist reminds us that labes don't make somebody a good person, actions do. It's a lesson we should be aware of as the gap between haves and have nots continues to grow wider.
Yet another bad idea we will no doubt be importing from the USA very soon if it has not already happened is the religious version of atheism. Well at least it will give the militant atheists who hate all religion a new target so Christians can quietly get on with is while us traditional atheists quietly tolerate religious belief.

As many of you know (because I'm always telling you) there are a lot of nutters in America. Now it's easy to jump to the conclusion that most of these nutters are evangelical (born again) Christians. This is partly right because religion does lead to nuttiness, but we should not "misunderestimate" the propensity of Americans to turn anything into a religion. One of those religions is ...
Christmas is coming - and Retail Christians are ready

Well here it is, our first Christmas post. I was more than a little gobsmacked to see a headline that read "IKEA" sells six foot Christmas Trees for £5. It was not the prices that amazed me, after all they have lots of pine trees in Sweden

Join The Christmas Resistance
Ever felt like asking yourself what this annual insanity called Christmas is all about and then taking yourself off to a Buddhist monastic retreat from December 21st to Jan 6th thus letting Christmas pass you by completely? More and more people are rejecting the idea that we can all be happy if we buy loads of stuff we do not need, will never use and after it has cluttered up our living space for a year will throw out just before next Christmas to make way for next year's Christmas tat? If you have you are not alone. Welcome to the Christmas Resistance.

Defying the Tyranny of Consumer Christmas
Manipulation is everywhere from the X Factor to Christmas, media hype is the tool that influences the sheeple to think what their masters want them to think. The careers of people as diverse as Michael Jackson and Barack Obama as well as the political success of Tony Blair are all built on nothing more substantial than spin. Repeat the lie often enough, that Michael Jackson is the most talented performer ever, that Barack Obama represents the dawn of a new era in politics, that Saddam posed a threat to the west, and enough people will believe it. So what can you do to regain your freedom. You can start by resisting the tyranny of the consumer Christmas
