I was talking to my mother today and she mentioned that they are having a decorating contest at work, but you aren't allowed to bring anything religious. This bothers me as does Obama having a "holiday tree" and everyone's fear of saying Merry Christmas in public. Several years ago here in Denver we had a big deal. Every year we have a "Parade of Lights" downtown, it's floats that different organizations put together to celebrate the holidays. Well a few years ago they tried to ban any religious displays in the parade. Well thankfully people stood up to that and they defeated that nonsense, but this brings me to my point.
I understand not everybody celebrates Christmas and of those that do celebrate not everybody recognizes it as Jesus' birth. In light of our censorship discussion, why must the religious celebrators be censored in order to not offend people? Why is nobody worried about offending those that DO celebrate the religious part of Christmas? Why is it ok to crap on their holiday but saying Merry Christmas to someone who doesn't celebrate it is unacceptable? Why the double standard?
