Exactly. Christmas is about the birth of Christ. It's a religious holiday. Crazy to celebrate the birth of Christ when Christ isn't allowed to be seen, spoken of, or pictured there.The city does not want to appear to endorse one religion over another, said Cindy Gatziolis, a spokeswoman for the Mayor's Office of Special Events.
Then they need to celebrate ALL religious holidays, or NONE of them. Take their pick, but they cannot remove Christ from Christmas and say they are not choosing sides.
The insanity is they have a nativity scene there! So the nativity scene is there but promoting a movie that tells the story of it is offensive? Why not just turn it into the Christmas pageant from South Park where the kids are all dressed in unitards, dancing to minimalist music composed by Phillip Glass.
Seriously who's walking by some sort of Christmas-y thing and getting offended? And if they are getting offended can we round them up and ship them off somewhere? Because it's lameass crybabies like that, that are ruining everything.
God I hate Phillip Glass...i don't much like xmas either but still I'm not gonna protest it.
When's the flying spaghetti monster holiday?
