NEW HAVEN, CT - In an effort to recognize the diverse traditions of the holiday season, the City has installed a Festivus pole in the Market Street square. A dedication ceremony is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. With the addition of this new holiday centerpiece, the square is now thought to be the most diverse public display of late fall holiday symbols in the country...

> I prefer Veronica and Betty.
AND I prefer WonderWoman!
oh, humor. too close to reality this time.
I think it’s a Asherah pole...darn Canaanites found a way to make a pole out of metal instead of wood.
have you seen the thread today equating liberalism with Baal worship?
And shouldnt it be a “plain unadorned metal shaft”?
Being from IL I like the Blago-Nike Deal 'news' article.
The agreement, rumored to be valued as high as an appeals court appointment, is valid as long as Blagojevich avoids prison, where Nike products are banned by Illinois law. The contract is also reported to contain escalator clauses that allows bonus payments for any public trials or impeachment.That's pretty funny, because it could almost be true. ....
Exactly right...just another MOCKERY of Christianity.
HE must be weeping.
Liberalism and Baal worship....what’s the difference? i don’t know, but here are the similarities.
-The things they made or stole
-Their shrewd, wickedness.
-Themselves and their money
Did I mention themselves?
The “City” must get their ideas from Seinfeld shows. How clever.
Soon women may flock to the festivus pole to have their babies aborted.
WTF dude? This is a "Festivus" thread! Get a grip!
-perverted sex=support of gays and homosexual practices.
-their own god=a notion or nation without GOD!
-Anything goes mentality= rid of Christianity!
Christ weeps over Seinfeld episodes? Me too! I had tears rolling down my face when George trampled the old lady to flee the oven fire at that little kid's birthday party. I'm laughing as I type this!
Woah. That episode killed!!!
Indeed. Tinsel is distracting.
Sigh... Ain't that the case. This thread has quickly been rendered solemn and depressing.
C'mon, people. Even Ned Flanders has a sense of humor!
Is there any way to load the Festivus pole with Roman candles, bottle rockets, and toy rocket engines to send it into orbit in the style of Yale grad John Kerry's windsurfing vector above? It might prove a fitting end to the Winter Solstice/festivus prank.
promoting of bisexual ritualistic sex
pantheism (worship of creation/nature)
People were offered up to the pole and killed. Sexual dancing, sex acts and general nakedness and drunkenness were also part of the Asherah poles worship.
Eskimo totems poles are a more modern version
Hard to do sexual dancing around a totem pole to many splinters.
Now, sit on it and rotate. . . . .
