It IS “Christ”mas, after all; NOT “Atheist”mas.

What is sad is that one person can stir up this much sh*t and nothing the majority wants can be done any more.

The rights of the one over the rights of the others.

If common sense were alive this clown would have been told to go screw himself.

I would have to ask those people if they were so insecure that they wouldn’t handle a little freedom of speech? Really, do they want to live in a country where no one has belief in God? Maybe they should move to another country rather than take our God out of our lives.

The Constitution GUARANTEES you will be offended if everyone gets freedom of speech & religion!

It is way past time to stop this in it’s tracks. PUSH BACK ON THESE FOOLS.

Somehow the atheists who want symbols of Christianity removed from public property kind of reminds me of the mentality of the Islamic extremists. There is no tolerance for anything except their own point of view. Come hell or high water they are going to get THEIR way.

A majority of ONE.

PC rides again and will continue to do so, as long as it continues to win — and PC winning means PC censoring.

One must CHOOSE to be offended. It doesn’t happen by itself without one’s conscious choice...Stevie666

Now they've hired Phillip Glass to compose the music for the Christmas program.

I’m a jew and I love Christmas! The decorations, lights, music! Oh, the music!

But Jews still can't eat Christmas snow. ;)

I swear the world is becoming one giant South Park episode.

I loved reading your post. That’s what the reaction to these God-hating fascists should have been all along.

Santa Monica wasn’t “forced” to cancel Christmas. They gave in, plain and simple.

***Were you there? Just curious how you know this?***

I live in the area. I knew the crank. Word leaked out from the hospital staff.

A caveat to the story... These two brothers, my former students, saw the offended neighbor getting groceries out of her car a few days later after the second Nativity scene went up, and they offered to assist with groceries.

She yelled at them and told them to go away. The boys politely thanked her and went on their way. The boys showed class and grace all the way. They turned out to be the adults in the situation.

Good Morning!

A caveat to the story:

The boys saw the offended neighbor getting her groceries out of her car a few days after the second Nativity scene went up, and offered to assist her with the groceries. She yelled at them and told them to go away.

The brothers thanked her and went on their way. The boys turned out to be the adults in the situation even though they were in eighth grade.

It amazes me to no end to see just how narrow minded these "educated" people have become. I've really seen a transformation of the university system over the years become so twisted in promoting the concept of thought and debate. It's only of value to them now when it agrees with their philosophy. Case in point would be the latest fiasco at Fordham University. They rescinded an invitation to Ann Coulter to speak at this "Catholic" university, but still thought it appropriate to invite prof. Peter Singer, who advocates the killing of the unborn, but also sex with animals. Good grief!

Catherine of Aragon, (love the name btw )Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

did this happen in Wisconsin?

also, in regards to the original story, you would think in a town named after st. Monica they would be more than happy to put up a creche

Yep...this happened in central Wisconsin.

Hard to believe a town like St. Monica wouldn't be more zealous about defending their good name. But then we have the City of Angels out there...
