If the politically correct are going to supress Christians at parades centered around religious holidays

That's like saying the terrorist are bad guys. Who are the terrorists? Do they have a name? Who are the people that don't like Christmas? Who *exactly* is being offended here?

Just talked to the Mayor's office. The lady said that the mayor has changed his mind after being inundated with calls - there will be the Merry Christmas sign and the carols.

It was easy to get through and I encourage others to call as well - just to reinforce his spine.

To hear the left spin it (especially at protest rallies), America and Israel are "terrorists".

Wrong is right. Up is down. Bad is good.

If we take this to its natural conclusion, the term "Happy Holidays" is offensive to Jehovah's Witnesses, since not celebrating any holidays is a tenet of their religion.

Boo hiss Denver! They are now scratched off my list of tourist locations.

Gay pride parades are OK with this mayor, I'll bet.

I LOVE Michelle Malkin. She's always all over the right issues.

Well in order to comply with the true meaning of "spepartation of Church & State" all Government Employees should have to work on Christmas. We can't have the Governement Employees taking off on a religious holiday!

I recently made a similar statement. If Christ is to be taken out of Christmas then there is no reason for a federal holiday. That not only applies to government employees, but everyone who enjoys a paid day off for a religious holiday that they choose to negate.
