It's not even Thanksgiving but televangelist Pat Robertson is warning that the "War on Christmas" is back and this time the "miserable" atheists won't stop until no one can enjoy the holiday.

The 700 Club on Monday reported that the city of Santa Monica had decided to prohibit churches from setting up nativity displays in a public park because atheists also set up their own display with an anti-religion message.

"The Grinch is trying to steal our holiday," Robertson complained. "It's been so beautiful, the nation comes together, we sing Christmas carols, we give gifts to each other, we have lighted trees and it's just a beautiful thing."

He added: "Atheists don't like our happiness. They don't want you to be happy. They want you to be miserable. They're miserable so they want you to be miserable. So they want to steal your holiday away from you."
