It's not going to stop, it'll only become a bigger snowball until 8 other people think it's a good idea and so on. I know you understand the importance of rights in this country. For a large majority, Christmas is important. Shouldn't they have that right? I don't understand how you differentiate the rights of a bear and the rights of someone who celebrates Christmas.

christmas isn't going anywhere. give me a break.


So just ignore it I guess. Gotcha. ;-)

Actually, in this case I think you should ignore it. They supposedly voted like this because it was so obvious Christmas and Christianity is an important part of the society that spending time voting on a declaration declaring it so was a waste of time. He was making a point and considering this is such an absurd think to call a vote on in the first place, Christians would be better served fighting against a legitimate threat instead of a small group of idiots grandstanding. In other words, pick your battles. Complaining about every anti-Christian sentiment will only trivialize legitimate gripes later.

...but in keeping with the spirit of the politically correct times, and not wishing to offend any non-Christians - let me be the first here to wish everyone a very Happy Diwali!!! Drive safe!

I guess it's more of a statement against bush and not a statement against Christmas. But they did choose that one to do it one, which will displease a few more.
