    I am pissed as hell this morning, after watching the Seattle morning show (yeah whatever, all the local news stations recycle national stories). Now the Sea-Tac airport took down Christmas trees, because some Rabbi was threatning to sue. So now the airport has no Christmas trees.

    What the hell are people's problems, with political correctness?

    In my province in Canada, Manitoba, the politicians came up with this clever word the "multicultural, holiday tree". :@ :eek: This is what I like to call, political correctness taken to the EXTREME

    This is not a matter of religion. Its a matter of tradition and people changing up our holidays.

    Its been Christmas tree for years and it makes me :@ these secular progressive left-winged liberals, and Jews/Muslims, etc. want to screw everything up.

    My plan: create a EBWF siggie club.

    Look at my sig.

    strikeandburn - http://forum.ebaumsworld.com/showpost.php?p=2966638&postcount=5

    Join the club, change your siggie for the holiday season to show your contempt for this outrage.

    Wal-Mart and Target are doing better this year, after last year, there was nation-wide boycotts and strikes over this, so they are smart enough to leave it Merry Christmas.

    This is my rant, so be it if you disagree, discuss, and change your siggie with the pledge!:D

    Did you ever stop to think that it's nicer to wish someone Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas? After all, Happy Holidays is wishing that person well for every holiday, Christmas, New Years, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, everything.

    Why limit festive greetings to Christmas?

    For me it's also tradition to celebrate 2 holidays at this time of year, Christmas and New Years, so I view it as better if someone wishes me happy holidays instead of just one

    Happy Holidays is not just a "synonym" for Merry Christmas.

    Its secular progressive, liberal, left-wingers who want us to be all "multicultural"

    Multiculturalism doesn't work. Look at all the examples in our world today, it does not work.

    Then people of other religions coming to OUR country and wanting to change things.

    They have the right to celebrate their religion, don't f-up our public places traditions of saying Merry Christmas and putting up Christmas trees.

    In that case its "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

    Where have you been....?

    Apparently they could have added a menorah, which I think would have been a better decision. Give everyone something, instead of taking away everything.

    I know you live in Canada, and I don't if your country was founded on religion or not, but here in the US we don't have, and never have had a national religion.

    You're blowing this thing into a much bigger deal than it is. If you want to complain about multiculturalism, you've got sooooooo many legitimate points to make. Nit-picking over this issue is just silly.

    Anyway,

    Did you ever stop to think that it's nicer to wish someone Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas? After all, Happy Holidays is wishing that person well for every holiday, Christmas, New Years, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, everything.

    Why limit festive greetings to Christmas?


    This is my problem with people who complain about things being PC:
    It isn't a mistake that society is starting to see certain phrases or actions as un-PC. It's always been this way, don't you think people were making the same complaints you are when it was becoming less acceptable to call black people niggers outright?

    Society changes for the benefit of the whole, if the larger amount of us see something as being silly, or outdated, we change it. Society is simply progressing, and you're stuck in the past.

    x-mas is more than just an abbreviation. it's deliberate removal of Christ's name in a Christian holiday, in yet another effort to remove God from the world.

    and kwanzaa is a joke holiday. it isn't a noble african tradition, it's a phony holiday established by a ku klux klanner.

    Why?Because jewish people are all into "multiculture" according to yellow, but the rabi made the christmas trees go DOWN and a menorah go UP, honesly, WHAT THE FUCK!

    Im catholic and i celebrate christmas, I dont mind the menorah, but he made those people take down 9 or 8 christmas trees and then they put a a fucking menorah

    EDIT: a7x1337, I am a catholic and i go to church every sunday i can, but there is not that great of a difference between "X-mas" and "Christmas" So they are taking the word christ out, BIG DEAL! Alot of people including catholics and christians call it X-mas

    This is just another example of self-righteous Christians getting pissed off that things aren't exactly how they want it to be? Respect your fellow man? So long as he's a Christian, and dresses, talks, and acts the way you think is morally acceptable.

    Fuck you.

    Or, in the very least, respectful of the fact that not everyone is the same.

    People like you don't let it work.

    This country was founded as a free country, where all religions could be accepted.

    The original settlers here were fleeing religious bigotry and persecution. The same kind that you are advocating right now. You couldn't possibly be any more wrong.
