Muslims now comprise about 1% of the American population, numbering 3+ million. Why is it that the tail is wagging the dog in all areas of American society - schools, universities, public events? How CAN this be happening? What is wrong with the rest of us, that we aren't opposing the erosion of our values and traditions more forcefully, legally and vocally?
Just a difference in interpretation, that's all.
If Christmas observance/celebration is to be attacked and silenced in OUR schools and on OUR public property, then I want it attacked and silenced all along Main Street and in every retail outlet. Let's see how far that would go! Not far, you can bet your last dollar on that!
The issue is not other religions, the issue is expressed in Judges 21:25 - every man wants to do what is right in his own eyes (slight paraphrase)
Letters, e-mail, phonecalls, lawsuits etc. will do nothing to end this BS. This is but one of many thousands of examples of the agenda that the left has to destroy America from within. This continues day after day, city after city and most people don't seem to care. Where is the anger? America is being surrendered to its enemies within. What will this nation be like if the left gains control of our govt.? They already indoctrinate through most schools, Universities, entertainment and media. Activist judges take the power of the people away by aking laws from the bench. The leftist ACLU proves time after time that it is anti-American. The divide in this country is way beyond politics. It is a cultural war. It is a war of ideologies. It is no less than defending this nation from those who would destroy it from within. Our great military is doing its part to defend this nation and what it stands for against our foreign enemies. Those in and out of our govt. who truly love this country must make their voices heard and their will felt by ou domestic enemies. It is now past time to stand up and be counted and take this country back. God bless America!!
Someone point out to me where "Jingle Bells" became a religious song.
CLASS ACTION! CLASS ACTION! Let all FReepers unite and take it to the courts! It used to work, but Clinton
loaded the courts with liberal judges. Now the courts would rule "agin us"!
At least we should get in touch with our representatives,
as well as our president about our misgivings on this overt bigotry against the Christian religion!
A Civil War? I'd enlist in a N.Y minute!
Just too bad most people won't do it. But if we did could, :-), you can hear the out cry from the ACLU? Those poor people without jobs, we need to sue some one!
We all know how far overboard the schools have gone. No Christmas vacation but Winter vacation, no Christmas carols but "Holiday" songs, etc., etc.
But have you realized how hard it is to even buy cards that say Christmas? Or that displays of Christmas trees or Christmas ornaments are not called Christmas (whatever) but Holiday (whatever).
What freakin' holiday other than Christmas they are for, I have no idea, but you know we can't offend anyone.
I was in Target yesterday, admittedly on a mission to find Christmas "stuff". I looked at four shelves of "Holiday" cards. Out of probably 150 different cards, THREE had the word "Christmas".
No artificial trees had the word "Christmas" and out of hundreds of ornaments TWO had "Christmas" either on the ornament or on the label.
Oh, and no bell ringer out front.
Face it folks, the season of love and happiness, giving and forgiving, it fast on its way to turning into just another day.
At least the ADL and ACLU could then rest easy.
The ACLU and Anti-Defamation League threatened to sue unless the program was cleansed.

Moral Absolutes Ping.
I love Don Feder. And he's a Jew. Why is an attack on Christ-Mass an attack on moral absolutes? Because the moral absolutes as written in the Bible are also written in every theist religion in the world, and inscribed in the heart of every human being.
Atheists and secularists may be able to eventually remove every holy book, every religious song, symbol, and teacher from the world, but they can never remove the laws of God from every atom or from the deepest recesses of their hearts.
Let me know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.
I really think it is because about half this country does not value their heritage or maybe even know anything about it. They've been indoctrinated themselves and don't have a clue as to who the founding fathers even were, let alone that they were Christians. THey are spoon fed what popular opinion should be and they go for it. They are susceptable to the guilt trip put on by special interest groups. They stand for nothing, still stuck in the high school mode of "I want to be liked". It's a shame, but I feel very strongly this attitude will not change without a complete shift in public schools and as we see they are just getting more and more hostile not only to just Christians now, but the Christian roots of this country. I have little hope that this will be turned around.
As an aside, thank the good Lord for the oppurtunity for my child to go to a small Christian school. She not only hears about Christ at every turn, but celebrates Advent and other church year events. I can't say my son's situation is so bad though either. He's autistic and in a preschool for such situation in the local ps and he once came home with a Valentine and then an Easter card with a very forward Christian reference. Teachers did not weed them out or as far as I know repremand the parent so I don't believe most of our schools locally are the hostile places some other school systems seem to be, but I still enjoy my daughter's school where the same thing we teach at home is reinforced by her teacher.
