Stand Up for Christmas

Posted by olemike on 12/07/2010

I was dismayed to read this article about Chase Bank forcing a christmas tree removal from a bank in Southlake, Texas.  If  91% of the people  celebrate Christmas, who would be offended?  I fear for our country when we have become so politically correct that we now cannot display items such as a christmas tree for fear of offending some small group of people who would have us destroy years of tradition.  Why would the preference of 9% (or less) of the people take precedence of the other 91%?  Can anyone explain this to me?  When will we realize that if we don’t stand  for something, we stand for nothing.

    I feel the same as you do. We stand in fear of losing so many of our traditions if we don’t stand up and be counted. When I hear that some schools no longer say the Pledge of Allegiance, it makes my blood boil.

    Wow, that is frightening!
    Last night I went to a meditation retreat with some of my BC friends. What struck me as interesting was the speaker welcomed us and specifically said Happy Hannukah (he’s Jewish) but didn’t mention Merry Christmas as if it were bad. It’s gone too far. Of course this was in west Marin which is filled with loo-loos but the 91% need to stand up!
